Over 60 law firms attended the Kienzle Solicitors User Group annual meeting and conference in Reading.

Delegates "were impressed by the commitment of the group to the legal market," says user group chair Andrew Priest, finance director of Davies Arnold Cooper.

Kienzle says its ARISTA practice management system had over 40 new law firm users in 1994 and its first local authority, bringing total users to over 80. It predicts 20 per cent revenue growth in 1995, with an increased product portfolio. The group aims to tackle the Scottish legal market and win more local authority legal departments.

Priest says that the group's problems a few years ago during the change to Digital's ownership are over. Kienzle is committed to expanding the support desk, with 20 per cent more staff to deal with increased enquiries.
