Watkins Solicitors select P4W for their practice and case management solution along with the full Advanced Hosted Desktop Service

18th November 2020 – Tikit, an Advanced company, today announced that its software, Partner for Windows (P4W), has been selected by Bristol-based law firm, Watkins Solicitors. As well as being recognised as national leaders in the field of education law, Watkins are also now seen as one of the leading family law firms in Bristol and the South West. They also offer a wide range of legal services including conveyancing, wills, probate and employment law.

P4W, already used by over 600 firms in the UK, will be rolled out to 45 users at the firm and will benefit from the comprehensive Legal Aid Module built into P4W which will automate the complex administrative processes involved in Legal Aid work in order to keep their firm compliant with LAA regulations.

Beverley Watkins, Partner at Watkins Solicitors, says: “After speaking to several law firms who recommended P4W, we are really happy with our decision to partner with Advanced for our practice and case management solution. We value the opinion of other firms in the industry and were impressed with their trust in P4W. Due to the variety of legal services we offer at Watkins Solicitors, we needed a system that would be compatible with all areas of work the firm carries out. We also required a solution that would be compatible with the administrative processes and legal requirements of the extensive legal aid work we carry out.”

Watkins also opted for the full Advanced Hosted Desktop service which includes P4W hosting, Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Exchange Online e-mail services. The solution includes a full migration service from their current “on premise” systems, designed to deliver a fully managed and outsourced solution and offering a true one-stop solution for their firm.

Doug Hargrove, Managing Director – Legal – Advanced, adds: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Watkins to the Advanced legal community. Its fantastic to see the firm acknowledge our position in the market as the leading provider of an all-in-one, fully-hosted practice and case management solution with integrated Legal Aid modules.”
