Leading south-east law firm IBB Solicitors has signed a six-figure deal to roll out SOS Connect for integrated case and practice management. IBB is replacing its existing system with SOS Connect legal software from .

IBB Solicitors is a full-service law firm based in Uxbridge in west London. The firm services a broad range of client work arranged in four practice groups, with a fifth business support group covering management and back-office support for the firm.

Joanna DeBiase, operations partner, confirmed that the transition to the SOS practice management system should be complete by the middle of next year.

“Our previous practice management system has served us well since 1997 – however, our existing provider had no successor product in place. We were looking for something new which would both update the ageing PMS functionality and provide us with a solid platform for developing new client systems.

“Using SOS Connect I am expecting to be able to continue moving towards a single electronic file for routine work and to utilise tablets paired with remote working capabilities, to really free the fee-earners to work seamlessly away from the office. SOS Connect will play a part in providing the case inception and time recording capabilities, alongside our document management and e-mail systems.

“In the current economic climate, SOS Connect proved to be a very cost-effective solution and we look forward to working with the SOS team to explore new ways to achieve a really good return on our investment.”

David McNamara, managing director of SOS, said: “IBB Solicitors had established front-office systems in place for some time.

“However, the firm had come to the point where it also required a really capable and agile practice management system, along with an established provider who could integrate these components. Our team is now working with IBB to realise this fully streamlined and efficient operation.”

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Chris Davidson Moore LT

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
