Handshake Software, a provider of SharePoint portal and tools, partnered with Neudesic, an expertise location system for law firms, before ILTACON. The partnership brings the Neudesic Firm Directory, with people-centric profiles that capture and discover experience, to Handshake Software’s portals. Customers can use the Firm Directory’s taxonomy to surface attorney experience with Handshake Software’s Expertise Locator, which uses contracts, documents, time entries and other line-of-business systems to derive attorney expertise.
Prior to partnering with Neudesic, Handshake Software partnered with LexisNexis Legal & Professional to integrate the LexisNexis Digital Library with Handshake Software’s Portal & Search product for Microsoft SharePoint 2013 and Office 365. Although this allows attorneys and librarians to review and check out ebook titles via SharePoint, more to point is the ability to access electronic titles in a SharePoint context. The partnership can provide direct access to resource materials in a matter, with matter contacts, documents and financials.
