Portsmouth law firm gets on board with cloud

Have your say

A PORTSMOUTH law firm has put itself at the cutting edge of the profession by becoming one of the first to switch its systems to a secure cloud-based IT service.

Taylor Made Computer Solutions has signed a six-figure, three-year deal to supply its fully-hosted managed services solution to Coffin Mew.

Until recently it has been rare for law firms to adopt cloud-based systems because they hold sensitive client data – and there are stringent guidelines designed to ensure security and compliance within the legal profession.

The first stage of the installation went live last week when Coffin Mew’s systems were, smoothly and without any end user downtime, switched over to the new hosted platform.

Taylor Made is now responsible for the management and upgrade of the system and full delivery of IT services.

Tim Walker, managing director at Taylor Made Computer Solutions, based in Fareham, said: ‘We have been working with Coffin Mew for over 14 years, giving them strategic IT advice and on-site support in the firm’s three offices. Now they have switched to the cloud-based model which is a highly-efficient, cost-effective and low-risk solution.’
