PrintConverge Technology Specialists (Converge TS), the country’s only dedicated cloud computing provider for law firms, has secured another new client adding Greater Manchester and Lancashire law firm Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall to its growing client list.

Converge TS will provide the 200-year old firm, which employs over 100 people across seven offices, with a new operating system and fully-managed hosted desktop (cloud) service, after winning a competitive tender against two other technology providers.

The new technology will help support the continued growth of Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall’s corporate and commercial departments. The hosted cloud will enable the firm to update operations, move to digital records and filing, and provide it with greater security and efficiency when handling client work.

Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall finance director Mike Gillibrand explains: “The decision is client led. In a modern, flexible world the right IT can make a huge difference in how law firms deliver legal services.

“More of our solicitors are working offsite, on the move with clients, and our cloud based software will give them the tools to bring greater efficiencies into the way they advise clients, accessing important documents as and when they need them.

“Whether it’s working with businesses or individuals, due to the nature of our business, we must have a rigorous and robust document storage management system. The process in how we store and recover documents will now be quicker and more secure, bringing greater operational efficiencies,” he concludes.

Converge TS’s founder and managing director Nigel Wright, says: “We are delighted to be helping such a well-established firm move to a cutting edge cloud platform and modernise its operating system.

“It is great to see Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall embrace technology so thoroughly and I am sure they will reap the benefits over the months and years ahead.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
