SOS200Birmingham law firm Sydney Mitchell has deepened its relationship with Solicitors Own Software (SOS) by signing up to SOS Connect for practice and case management.

The full service practice, which has four offices in and around the city, has been an SOS customer for many years and has now strengthened these links after replacing its incumbent case management software.

“We have a long established connection with SOS, having used their practice management software for 15 or 20 years,” says Sarah Archer, finance partner at Sydney Mitchell.

“Recently we began looking at upgrading our case management and accounts functions with a new supplier but we were so impressed with what SOS Connect could do for us, and with the efficiency and proactivity of the SOS team, that we took that option.

“We will now have a completely integrated system which is a vast improvement on what has gone before and which will help us to become even more efficient and productive.

“We are keen to expand as a firm and this development will allow us to do so.”

Graham Colbourne, managing director of SOS, said: “It is always gratifying when an existing customer decides to cement their relationship with us in this way, and we look forward to working with Sydney Mitchell on the roll-out of SOS Connect.”

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
