IRIS – the empire* strikes back & takes Minster
It's been a good week for IRIS. Not only has LexisNexis acquired Axxia – so IRIS is no longer the sole topic of conversation within the industry – but it has also won the Minster Law site, who will be swapping out Eclipse case management software AND Paragon accounts in favour of an IRIS Legal Office (aka Videss) integrated practice and case management system. Minster Law (originally Corries) is currently the UK’s second largest personal injury claims firm and, as part of its Horizon Change Programme, is planning to double in size over the next three years.
The £400k deal will see the enterprise solution deployed across Minster Law’s 400 strong workforce in York and Wakefield. Commenting on the deal, Minster Law's CIO Neil Boddy said: “In IRIS Legal we have found a business partner we can trust and who has the drive and commitment to match our own. They are the only legal IT supplier capable of helping us achieve our growth potential.”
* Anorak alert: IRIS, in common with LexisNexis, has a corporate logo that seems to be based on the Star Wars death star.
