By CIOReview | Monday, September 14, 2015

FREMONT, CA: Neudesics’ The Firm Directory, a people-based expertise location system for law firms and legal departments built on the Pulse collaboration platform, integrates with Handshake Software’s SharePoint-based Portals, Enterprise Search and data-driven Expertise Locator products.  

The clients can now make use of The Firm Directory's skills taxonomy to surface attorney experience, which is now integrated with Handshake Software's data-driven attorney expertise from financial and other line-of-business systems, time entries, documents and contacts.

The Handshake customers with the help of The Firm Directory’s safe social collaboration features from the Neudesic Pulse platform will be able to decrease their dependency on email with a knowledge management community within their portal.

"The Neudesic Firm Directory partnership brings two key benefits the market has been asking for: social collaboration around clients, matters and practice areas, and a 360-degree view of firm expertise from firm data and people-derived information," says Glenn LaForce, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing,Handshake Software.
