Management system gains further favour

AUSTRALIAN firm Mallesons Stephen Jaques has become the fourth law firm to go live with Keystone's practice management system.

Graham Fros, Keystone's chief executive, said it had taken nine months to install the system – half as much time as was originally anticipated.

DJ Freeman was the first UK firm to install the New Zealand company's system, which is designed for large firms.

Two New Zealand firms have also installed the system.

A Keystone spokeswoman said several more UK firms had expressed an interest in the product as well as some accountancy firms.
