London, United Kingdom, June 14, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The Signet Online service from the WS Society, Scotland’s independent association for lawyers, was launched in partnership with Solcara in April 2009. This new service is providing a revolutionary online search service for legal professionals. Underpinning The Signet Online is the Solcara SolSearch technology which is already widely deployed in leading UK and Irish law firms. Solcara SolSearch simplifies searching of, and access to, essential sources of legal information. With the launch of The Signet Online, firms of all sizes and across all geographies will be able to access and search multiple online legal resources.
Robert Pirrie, Chief Executive of The WS Society, commented:
“Our objective with The Signet Online is to give lawyers a convenient desktop tool that supports their research needs from within their own office. This is all part of our transition from a hard copy lending model to a contemporary and comprehensive knowledge services approach. The feedback we have received since the service was launched has been excellent, and we expect the service to be a big hit with small and medium sized firms as well as inhouse legal departments as they look for more efficient and cost effective ways to access essential online information.”
Rob Martin, Managing Director of Solcara, commented:
“The ability of Solcara SolSearch to integrate with the Scottish and UK resources required by WS Society members and non-members is ensuring that those who use it have a single, intuitive interface to their primary sources of legal information. Additionally the addition of LexisNexis content to the service, on a pay per view model, supports access to content that was previously beyond the reach of small and medium sized firms. We look forward to extending and enhancing the service to support the WS Society as they enable access to more online services through The Signet Online.”
