Solution 6 Starts 2001 with Major CMS OPEN® Contract for Leading UK Law Firm Friday 26 January 2001 PDF Print Leading software supplier Solution 6 and prominent UK law firm Brachers Solicitors have signed a substantial contract to implement the CMS OPEN Practice Management System. Brachers has enjoyed considerable expansion over the last few years, particularly in the areas of corporate and commercial work, and the firm now has 215 staff including 21 partners and a further 58 fee earners. As well as being a leading law firm in Kent, Brachers is also considered a major player in the southeast and is a member of the Law South Group. According to Jim Day, Practice Manager of Brachers, the deal is significant for them in that they are "a firm that is moving up a step", and CMS fits neatly with their plans. Brachers chose CMS OPEN after a thorough examination and elimination process lasting six months. Feedback from firms already using CMS OPEN played a major part in the final decision, as did CMS OPEN’s technically advanced features and ability to be configured to their specific needs. Web functionality was an important consideration and Day highlighted that the firm is looking forward to taking advantage of the new CiO browser front end of CMS OPEN. Brachers are not altogether strangers to Solution 6 - they are already users of the company’s Trust Accounts, TrusTAX, and PerTAX products. Cynthia Sessions, President of Solution 6’s CMS OPEN product line, described the Brachers agreement as "extremely exciting and a very positive start to the New Year following on from the company’s success in 2000". Sessions added: "We are happy to welcome Brachers to the Solution 6 and CMS OPEN family and are confident that CMS OPEN’s scalability will accommodate their continued growth across the country."
