Ace targets solicitors

Applied Computer Expertise (Ace) is hoping for a breakthrough into solicitors' practices with an adapted version of its Infinity practice management system.

The firm has created a new position of sales and marketing manager to target the developing market. The post will be filled by Stephen Murphy, formerly a sales executive at legal software supplier DPS. He will head a sales team promoting a version of Ace Infinity adapted specifically for solicitors.

The Infinity system is currently used in over 80 per cent of barristers' chambers, but it has yet to make its mark among solicitors.

Managing director, Rodney Voyce, said: "With the appointment of Stephen Murphy we have taken the first step towards putting our energy and resources behind tapping the market among solicitors' practices."
