Salisbury based Wilsons Solicitors LLP is swapping out its Miles 33 practice management system in favour of the Peppermint Platform in order to drive and generate revenue. The growing law firm believes that whilst other systems may assist them in doing their job, the Platform is the only legal software capable of actually generating revenue through the effective automation of cross selling and business development.

Wilsons has built a robust business on traditional values coupled with modern thinking, a commitment to clients and a readiness to adapt and invest. In the last five years the firm, which now employs 170 staff, has experienced significant growth, opened a London office and moved into new headquarters.

Wilsons will utilise the Platform’s powerful business rules engine and workflow to automate processes, tasks and alerts in areas across the business, including cross selling. By putting the client at the centre of its technology focus, Wilsons will use process automation to drive down costs, optimise business development opportunities and assist with client retention.

Wilsons andrew_robertsWilsons’ Managing Partner Andrew Roberts (pictured) commented “As a commercial firm with leading private client and charity practices we have always provided a high quality, personal service tailored to individuals and trustees as well as businesses. These diverse needs present real challenges to any practice management system. After 25 years with our current supplier it was time to move on to a market-leading solution that robustly retained all of the core functions needed to sustain our individual approach whilst adding new features to enhance and extend our client service. After an extensive review of the market we chose the Peppermint Platform, which more than meets these requirements, in a very user-friendly way, whilst offering clear routes to increased revenue and profit for our business.”

COMMENT: By our calculations, just three Miles 33 sites remaining in the UK Top 200 – ten years ago, they still had a dozen sites.
