Tikit today announced that The Co-operative Group, the UK’s largest mutual business, owned by over six million members, has made a substantial investment in Tikit’s practice management system Partner for Windows. As part of this investment The Co-operative will bring together The Co-operative Banking Group (CBG) Legal Services and The Co-operative Group Legal Department teams
Partner for Windows is a comprehensive practice and case management system including accounting, case and document management, time recording and billing which together form a complete system to meet the back and front office requirements of a modern legal services organisation. In addition The Co-operative has purchased added functionality through Tikit’s PDF Manager for efficient exchange of secure electronic documents; Partner Productivity Suite for email file management as well as tight integration with Bighand’s digital dictation and Workshare’s document comparison products.
Steve Howley, IT Project Manager for The Co-operative Group Legal Department, said “The use of Partner for Windows forms a major part of this exciting new venture for The Co-operative. By combining our two legal services teams into one we feel we can enhance the delivery of internal legal services. Partner for Windows will be fundamental to supporting the smooth consolidation of our systems and achieving our key strategic objectives. It will also help us reach our goal of becoming a paperless organisation in 2012!”
“We are delighted that The Co-operative Group has chosen Partner for Windows as part of this major overall re-structure,” commented Simon Hill, Tikit’s Professional Services Director “This partnership enables The Co-operative Group to use Tikit’s leading technology platform to deliver the highest quality legal services.”
