Leading Danish law firm Bech-Bruun, has selected Phoenix Business Solutions’ MatterView information management solution to provide its 500+ strong legal team with access to all critical client information on a matter through a single, centralised interface, thereby improving business efficiency and cross-firm collaboration.
Describing itself as a ‘modern law firm with specialist advisers committed to making complex issues simple’, Bech-Bruun had been looking to replicate this ethos in the way its team of lawyers accessed client matter information, including financial reports and key dates, contacts and tasks. Phoenix recently took on the service and support of Bech-Bruun’s iManage work document and email management solution from Tikit, with Bech-Bruun choosing to work with Phoenix due to the company’s recognised technology expertise and specialism within the Legal sector. Bech-Bruun’s decision to work with Phoenix has been further validated by the company’s ability to move the solution forward to support the firm’s corporate and commercial objectives with the deployment of Phoenix MatterView, which will seamlessly connect the information in its Practice Management, financial reporting and CRM systems.
Stefan Winquist, CIO, Bech-Bruun, comments: “For the last few years, it has been our objective to increase our business efficiency and professionalism by enabling our legal teams to collaborate better and deliver them exactly the information they need, and no more than that.
“Historically, lawyers have had to navigate between the different systems in order to get a comprehensive view of a client matter. This is both a difficult and time-consuming process whereby critical information can be easy to miss. MatterView, on the other hand, will do the business intelligence for us and present a clear and comprehensive view of all necessary details.”
By delivering real-time information through the use of scalable dashboards and automated reporting from multiple systems in a consolidated single interface, MatterView extends the functionality of solutions such as iManage Work and other best-of-breed systems. Developed by Phoenix’s legal technology experts, MatterView is able to organise large volumes of data and present it in an easily readable format.
The solution is currently in the early phase of implementation, with a firm-wide roll out expected to be completed by end of May 2017.
“I have been really impressed by Phoenix and by MatterView,” says Stefan. “From a technology perspective, the solution has a fantastic user interface which made its potential value to us immediately apparent. It will undoubtedly reinforce the value of our information resources to make us more efficient and present ourselves in the most professional manner possible.
“Moreover, as a technology and service provider, Phoenix has been very collaborative and easy to work with, and their in-depth understanding of the legal profession is clear in the calibre of the people we have dealt with. We are very excited to be working with this highly focused organisation.”
