Legal IT experts in Coventry and Warwickshire are being urged to share their experiences of technology and training at a new forum for the region.
Stratford-based IT and training solutions firm Humber-Ashford has joined forces with Coventry's Purple Mouse to organise the area's first Legal IT Forum. It will be hosted by Penman's Solicitors in Queens Road, Coventry city centre on May 25 at 12.30pm.
Similar forums arranged by Humber-Ashford over the past four years for Birmingham's legal IT professionals have proved hugely successful, resulting in a new atmosphere of collaboration and support among the city's legal IT professionals.
Joanne Humber, director of Humber-Ashford Associates, said: "Our forums in Birmingham have proved very popular and we felt a similar event was needed where Coventry and Warwickshire's legal IT professionals could meet, share their experiences and exchange ideas on industry-related issues.
"It is an ideal opportunity for IT managers from law firms to discuss how best to use the latest technology to help their businesses grow.
"We are delighted to be working with the Purple Mouse team to organise this forum, who bring with them a wealth of experience and expertise in ICT to the event.
"Those who attend will be able to share their experiences and take away valuable ideas on how best to use the latest technology and IT training techniques to keep their practices moving in the right direction."
Mandy Sutton of Purple Mouse added: "Our lawyer clients are constantly faced with issues surrounding IT that don't always need an IT professional to resolve. Talking helps improve awareness of opportunities to exploit IT along with reassurance that appropriate safeguards are in place."
Humber-Ashford Associates works with companies wishing to use technology more efficiently by custom-ising software and networks and providing experienced IT trainers to deliver structured training programmes and workshops, with follow-up support.
