CANON BUSINESS SOLUTIONS & SOS ANNOUNCE NEW PARTNERSHIP Tuesday 16 January 2001 PDF Print Canon Business Solutions has formalised a new partnership with Solicitor's Own Software (SOS) based in Bath. The partnership is the first of its kind with a leading imaging and IT solutions provider and legal software supplier enabling Canon and SOS to work jointly on providing total solutions to the legal market place. "The concept of supplying total solutions is not a new one, but legal software suppliers are not necessarily the best organisations to supply and support a firm's network infrastructure," explains Michael Platt, Managing Director, SOS. "What's so good about this arrangement is that Canon provides SOS's clients with a totally reliable, cost effective service, anywhere in the country, for all hardware, networking, internet, scanning, printing needs and through Canon Voice & Data, even phone systems are available!" Within days of the partnership being finalised, SOS and Canon have achieved their first joint contract for a £100,000 system to Chubb Bulleid Solicitors based in Wells, Somerset. In addition, the two companies are already working on a number of other shared projects and plans are already underway to integrate SOS's Practice Manager software with Canon's latest scanning system, Scanfile 2000. "Working with a well-respected legal software specialist such as SOS is very significant for Canon," reveals James Romaines, Director, Canon Business Solutions. "SOS's strong reputation in the legal sector combined with Canon's business solutions expertise demonstrates a partnership capable of opening doors to a whole new market and shows how Canon is able to offer specialised services to its customers." The partnership Canon has forged with SOS complements its ongoing activities in the legal sector including sponsorship of the Law Society's Software and Solutions Guide - a comprehensive reference for software and network solutions information.
