First recruits for software image group

The Legal Software Suppliers Association admitted its first members this month.

Thirteen suppliers, including Aim Professional, Norwel Computer Services and Linetime, have joined the newly-formed trade association.

The LSSA was launched in May and aims to revitalise the image of legal software suppliers. Its predecessor, the Association of Legal Technology Suppliers, was severely rapped by the Law Society last year.

LSSA chair John Wilde said one of the first tasks will be a survey of customer satisfaction to establish a benchmark against which future improvement can be measured.

He added: "With this membership we are ready to promote the association's code of practice as an important business benefit to customers and members."

Survey questionnaires will be sent to customers taken from the LSSA's databases of members.
