Handshake Software, Inc., a provider of SharePoint-based products and services to the legal market, has introduced support for Microsoft Office 365 and SharePoint Online with its portal and integration products.
The new capabilities are aimed at allowing law firms to take advantage of SharePoint Online as part of Office 365 to deliver pages for matters, clients, and departments through integration with firms’ on-premise and cloud-based systems including Aderant, Elite, iManage, NetDocuments, InterAction, and other applications.
The Office 365 and SharePoint Online strategy stays true to the company’s mission to provide lawyers, CIOs, and knowledge management professionals with one-stop KM information within one unified system, said Glenn LaForce, Handshake Software’s executive vice president & chief strategy officer.
According to Handshake, its clients will be able to migrate from on-premise SharePoint Portals or extranets to cloud-based versions without having to re-create their existing Handshake Software-based web parts and pages.
There is increased demand from law firms moving to the Office 365 platform, according to Douglas Horton, CEO and president of Handshake Software. By providing a path to migrate their existing on-premise SharePoint to SharePoint Online in the future, he said, without the need to rewrite their portals, Handshake seeks to protect its clients’ investment in its software.
