Two software providers, Star Americas Software Solutions and Wilson Legal Solutions, have partnered to improve services to accounting firms and other professional services organizations.

As part of this new relationship, Wilson will join with Star in providing professional, technical and advisory services for Star Practice Management software. In addition, Wilson will deliver advanced analytics solutions, including advanced warehousing and cubes, to enhance the native business intelligence (BI) and reporting functionality in the Star software.

“As our business and customer roster continues to expand, we identified the need to grow our partner ecosystem,” says Bernard Skalla, CEO of Star Americas. “Wilson represents an attractive business partner, given the nature of its client base and its unique BI product offering.”

Norm Mullock, VP of strategy for Wilson, adds, “We see a significant number of larger accounting and consulting firms looking to modernize their legacy practice management applications by adopting Star’s innovative solution. Wilson’s diverse team of subject matter experts is perfectly suited to help organizations modernize their systems in the short term, and increase their access to richer analytics, metrics and reporting, to better manage their service lines in the long term.”

Mullock notes that the accounting industry is facing greater pressure and new challenges in areas including business development, risk management, and HR, where Wilson can provide additional expert guidance. As part of this partnership, Wilson will develop and configure specialized Business Intelligence (BI) tools for accounting firms that want to integrate data from multiple sources and manage analytic cubes through Microsoft Power BI.
