"We migrated to SLLS last year. The transition was smooth and we had a good response to the few ‘tweaks’ needed. The new product is very clear and well laid out, so training lawyers is easy, as the layout is now so like other main databases they use. The check-in/check-out facility works well. The Admin function is also pretty clear – and where it isn’t, a call or email to Bailey’s is answered promptly. I have also used the short training videos and they are clear and useful."

Anne Storey, Library Officer

Sackers

"I really like SLLS.  The look and feel is very smart and clean.  I like all the extra flexibility and functionality and the layout of the admin areas. The new features like the ability to attach pdfs of invoices and the AutoCat tool are going to make my life easier. The home page is far more attractive and helpful with the new additions, announcements etc."

"I cannot stress enough how easy SLLS is to use, and how much the online cloud system benefited us. There were so many benefits to us changing/updating to a new system."
