Housing charity Shelter selects SOS for legal aid billing
One of the UK’s leading charities has signed up to a new practice management system from Solicitors Own Software (SOS). Housing and homelessness charity Shelter has chosen SOS to enable legal aid billing which will be linked to the charity’s case management software in use by several hundred staff across 17 locations nationwide.
Stuart McSkimming, head of IT at Shelter, says: “We handle a large number of housing cases involving Legal Aid, and therefore require a robust software system which can cope with the quantity and complexity of our caseload.”
David McNamara, managing director of Solicitors Own Software, said: “Being able to work with such a nationally recognised name such as Shelter is a real coup for SOS. Early on in the process, Stuart and his team recognised that we could provide a flexible solution which would allow the charity to align our practice management software with that of its own case management system. In doing so, we will be providing the best possible solution from Shelter’s perspective, which was the focus of both parties for this exciting project.”
