Long-established London law firm Payne Hicks Beach has signed up to SOS Connect from Solicitors Own Software (SOS) for accounts, practice, document and matter management. The firm, which has 140 people based at its Lincoln’s Inn offices, focuses primarily on private client, family and corporate work.

Virginia Farquharson, director of finance and administration, says it had previously used two separate software systems. “We had decided to replace our document management system and then it became apparent that our accounting system was not being developed anymore, so we decided to look for a single replacement that could perform both functions,” she says. “We did not require anything too complex and SOS Connect provided an all-in solution in a very straightforward way.”

COMMENT: The firm previously ran LexisNexis Axxia for accounts.
