Rouse takes on SOS systems in Far East

Rouse & Co International is installing Windows-based time recording and accounts systems in its Hong Kong and Beijing offices, following successful implementation in London.

The firm installed the systems, supplied by Solicitors Own Software (SOS), in its London office in 1995 and successfully converted its account data to Windows.

The software has now been installed at the Hong Kong office and training is underway.

Managing director Peter Rouse said: "We are pleased with SOS and its accounts package. We expect to roll out the SOS system to our new offices in Jakarta and Dubai later this year."

This is SOS's first international order. The company says it "confirms the confidence increasingly being placed by large firms in their comprehensive true Windows software".
