Our users range from Sole Practitioners through to firms with over 500 users, we have firms who operate throughout the UK and specialise in a wide variety of legal work.

In the spring of 2004 we launched the UK's first web based software package for law firms, Osprey.TM. This latest system was the result of many years and millions of pounds worth of development. Osprey.TM was the first true web based software package for law firms and still to this day is years ahead of most other legal systems on the market.

Osprey.TM is a fully integrated accounts, time recording and case management system that offers law firms unprecedented levels of user functionality and client interaction. Created using the latest web based Microsoft .Net technology Osprey.TM is a total and pure web based product. Being a web based product brings many major business and operational benefits to our clients. We do not need to install any software at the users PC, therefore extending the life of the firms investment in hardware. Our clients are not required to invest in any server hardware or expensive database licences and we remove the need for expensive communication links allowing remote offices, home workers and clients simple, secure and efficient access to the system. All that is required to access and run our software is access to the internet via a broadband type connection. Disaster Recovery, Business Continuity and Security are all built in to the service.
