Forsters announced as finalists for the British Legal Technology Awards 2020 Team of the Year
We are delighted to announce that Forsters’ IT team has been announced as a finalist in the category ‘Technology Team of the Year’ at the British Legal Technology Awards 2020.
The award recognises the team’s successful execution of a strategy that evolved the firm's technological support from a reactive function, concentrating efforts on infrastructure, to a proactive function, innovated through the provision of cloud-based, secure applications and services.
Reflecting on the year’s achievements, IT Partner, Craig Thompson, comments: "It is remarkable for a team of just 20 to successfully support over 450 people to work flexibly and in an agile manner in such a short space of time and continue to deliver a seamless service delivery to clients. Despite their focus on improving Forsters' IT infrastructure, the team have significantly increased their responsiveness to staff with day-to-day IT concerns; removing the delay and frustration many feel when they have IT related queries".
CIO, Anthony Stables, comments: “It is testament to our team’s incredible efforts, and working closely with our technology partners, that we have been selected as finalists for this award. We have achieved an incredible amount in 12 months, with a new and diverse team, that have come together to revolutionise IT at Forsters”.
The winners will be announced on 12 November at the Awards Ceremony, all the finalists can be viewed here.
