Tikit bought by BT


BT of all people.  Wonder how long they’ve not been a phone company.  Ages by the sounds of it.  Still my Granny refuses to swap suppliers 😉

If you didn’t know (maybe you’re not in the legal market / or are in the legal market but been living on Pluto for a while), Tikit are the big CRM players in the Legal market, peddling amongt other things, InterAction… the biggie CRM database,  by LexisNexis (utlimately owned by Reed Elsiver).

Now BT’s in the legal  market – proof Law firms are an untapped cash rich market.  Watch this space. 

Proof they’ve been bought –  ‘The Lawyer’ has the story.  One of the Trade rags.
