SOS200Wards Solicitors has become the latest law firm to sign up to the SOS Connect practice and case management system from Solicitors Own Software (SOS).

The firm, which has ten offices throughout Bristol and surrounding areas, carries out a range of legal work for businesses and individuals.

It has used SOS practice management software for several years but has now signed up to replace its incumbent case management software with SOS Connect.

“With a growing network of offices in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset and North Somerset, we are looking for a more consistent approach across the whole firm”, says David Sheridan, managing partner at Wards Solicitors.

“SOS Connect is very flexible and customisable and can be rolled out in phases, with phase one being a matter management system for the whole firm. Implementation has also given us the opportunity to review and enforce some key compliance procedures.

“Our aim is to provide workflow functionality for each area of work in future enhancements including providing better marketing functionality.”

David McNamara, managing director of SOS, said: “We already had a long-standing relationship with Wards Solicitors. However the firm has now reached the stage where it needs a more unified approach across its various offices and we look forward to working closely with the firm on its 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.
