Software company invests in its team and office to drive growth and deliver enhanced customer support

19th March 2019, UK: Independent software company, Insight Legal Software today announces its continued expansion, welcoming a head office move and the appointment of former Director, Brian Welsh as Chief Executive Officer.

The news follows a period of significant growth for the legal software provider, with the company averaging 25 new customers per month over the last six months, ranging from single users to over 70 user sites. The company now serves 700 firms, a 30% increase year-on-year. The Insight Legal team has also expanded as a result, having bolstered its management team and doubling the size of its development team over the last 12 months.

To aid its continued growth, the company has also appointed Brian Welsh, a former Director to CEO. With over 25 years' experience in Legal IT and the provision of software solutions, Brian will be responsible for directing the strategic position of Insight Legal, with a focus on bringing the team together to steer the business through a period of internal investment and growth and beyond, as the company moves towards its next chapter.

The company has also recently established a number of in-house senior positions, including a Marketing Manager, Sales Manager, Project Manager and Support and Training Manager. The growing team is now also supported by a Marketing Assistant enabled by its close relationship with KnightsTraining and yet another dedicated Migrations Specialist. The increase in technical and support staff is timely given the company’s recent Making Tax Digital-compliance update to its software, which has been recognised by HMRC.

To accommodate its increase in headcount and focus on delivering market-leading customer support and technology advancement, Insight Legal has moved to a new head office situated in Farnborough, UK. Its Northern Ireland offices have also moved to a bigger space as has it’s Glasgow office, in order to provide the working space its team require to deliver exceptional services and support for its entire client base.

Commenting on Insight Legal’s growth, Welsh said, “At Insight Legal, we recognise that creating an enjoyable working environment for our dedicated team of industry experts is integral for continuing the development and success we have achieved across the market to date. Our service is built on the core foundations of honesty, independence and unique technology and our recent growth is a testament to the ongoing investment in upholding these values in all areas of our business.

“We are focused on maintaining our core values of being honest, proudly independent, friendly and approachable for customers and ensuring a customer centric approach throughout this period of growth. Relocating to our new and improved head office and strengthening the range of expertise within our team will help us to keep enhancing the functionality of our suite of solutions. By doing so, we can provide our clients with the most effective software for their business and remain competitive within an ever-growing legal IT marketplace,“ Welsh added.
