Hosted Legal – Hosted Desktop Services for Solicitors. We specialise in providing hosted desktops for solicitors and the professional sectors and currently have over 8,000 users using our Hosted Desktop, Hosted Application, and Hosted Exchange services.

Almost 80% of our user base are professional service firms including many law firms and accountants. See what some of our clients say.

We know that business continuity is crucial to law firms and that a business continuity plan is a requirement for the Law Society’s Lexcel accreditation.

With our hosted desktop solution all your data and electronic client files are hosted offsite, safe from critical incidents that could affect your office premises such as fire, theft, flood damage, natural disasters, hacking and system failure. Should anything happen to your offices, all your staff could continue to work remotely as normal, providing they have Internet access.

We also understand that many law firms have concerns over data security and this is a matter we take very seriously. All of our client’s data is stored in two of Europe’s most secure data centres (located in England) and never leaves the UK. For more information on security click here.

We backup your hosted desktop and replicate it hourly to another server which means that if anything goes wrong, your whole environment can be recovered. This means your software, data and operating system will be recovered without having to re-buy or reinstall anything. See more information on Backup & Replication.

Moving to a hosted desktop solution will reduce the amount of time you spend dealing with IT and enable your practice to focus on fee earning and dealing with clients.

Our team have backgrounds in professional sectors, which means that we understand your business and your software.
We offer either Microsoft Office 2013 Standard or Professional as part of the hosted desktop package. Please contact us for further details.
