But don’t take our word for it…

‘We have worked with Liz and Ongoing Concern for several years now.  Our involvement with Liz began when we needed a trouble shooter to allow us to better understand Locus reports and to train our team. 

We soon determined that an alternative more sophisticated practice management syste
m was now necessary.
Liz was integral in the tendering and pitching process we underwent to select the software package… Her independence, her depth and breadth  of knowledge of Locus and Affinity and perhaps even more importantly, law firm accounting and management practices, enabled us to discard the hype of the sales pitches and select the product most suitable for our needs. 

During the time Liz has worked with us we have come to rely on her direct, honest and unbiased advice in order to assist us continually improve our accounting and management reporting practices.  We look forward to the invaluable assistance she will no doubt provide during and following our Affinity implementation.’
