Rogers, Townsend & Thomas (RTT), of Columbia, SC implemented Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server (MOSS) to improve internal communications resulting in higher quality service to clients. MOSS provides RTT with a single point for employees to access company news and resources. RTT utilized Charlotte based Cardinal Solutions, a trusted Microsoft Partner, to help plan, architect and deploy SharePoint.

After a successful six week implementation and rollout enterprise-wide, RTT is looking to leverage MOSS for much more, as indicated by Rob West, Director of IT for RTT:

“SharePoint has proven to be a great solution to address our firm's need for improved internal communications. Initially deployed as our corporate Intranet, it has quickly become the place to go for the latest information, and quick access to our firm's online resources. We intend to expand the program's Business Intelligence capabilities, take advantage of collaboration using team sites, improve process efficiencies with workflow, and eventually provide an Extranet for our clients.”

Cardinal Solutions leveraged the MOSS Deployment Planning process, a repeatable, structured approach to plan and deploy SharePoint across the enterprise. In addition to assisting RTT to put a world-class SharePoint architecture in place, Cardinal Solutions focused on generating interest and adoption within the user community. This led to a quick return on investment for RTT. “Cardinal Solutions has proven to be an excellent partner with the skills, knowledge and responsiveness my users demand,” said West.

Cardinal Solutions is a trusted Microsoft Partner and is focused on helping law firms in the Carolinas region get the most out of their Microsoft investment. “Cardinal Solutions continues to expand its Microsoft team with a proven track record of successful SharePoint implementations,” says Chad Solomonson, Microsoft Partner Account Manager.

Microsoft software, solutions and partner community drive collaboration, integrated processing and efficiency, helping law firms deliver quality legal services, identify and retain high-value clients and improve financial performance.

“Microsoft technology adds to a (law) firm’s efficiencies with integrated processes, improving its financial and practice performance with better business insight,” said Norm Thomas, Industry Market Development Director for the Legal Industry, Microsoft Corporation. “Microsoft’s core philosophy is that people are at the heart of business success. Amplify their impact, and you improve business results."
