Aderant®, a leading global business management software provider for law firms, has announced the adoption of its new Handshake for Microsoft Teams integration by Eversheds Sutherland, an international top ten law practice, in its US offices.
With employees shifting to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic, Eversheds Sutherland recognized the growing importance of “self-service” knowledge management technology. The firm had been planning an expanded roll-out of Teams to streamline internal collaborative capabilities and described the decision to add Aderant’s Handshake integration as a “no-brainer.” The integration will allow the firm’s staff to leverage data from its various business systems within the Teams application, streamlining the process of accessing and sharing client information and documents.
Commenting on the firm’s decision to implement the Handshake Teams integration, Jonathan Thurmond, Director of Solutions & Decision Support at Eversheds Sutherland, stated:
“In selecting Handshake for Microsoft Teams, we were able to meet our lawyers, secretaries, and legal teams where they were already at. Information access is essential for the success of our firm, and making it available in this way is a game-changer for efficiency.”
