We are extremely proud of Reed Smith
Braintree, MA (PRWEB) September 8, 2009
XMLAW, the leading provider of SharePoint-powered information and knowledge management solutions to the legal industry, announced today that their client, Reed Smith, was named SharePoint Innovator of the Year 2009 at the International Technology Legal Association (ILTA) conference in Washington, D.C. on August 26, 2009.
The SharePoint Innovator of the Year award recognizes a law firm or corporate law department for its innovative use of Microsoft's SharePoint technology. Reed Smith's intranet portal was selected by legal industry peers at the conference, who voted on award winners from a field that was narrowed to four finalists from more than 100 submissions.
"We are extremely proud of Reed Smith," said Rob Saccone, XMLAW President and CEO. "We feel honored to partner with them on the ambitious vision they had for their portal."
The Reed Smith project team was led by Tom Baldwin, Reed Smith's Chief Knowledge Officer, and Lisa Gianakos, Reed Smith's Director of Knowledge Management. The portal leverages OneView Connect software to integrate internal and external information sources, and also provide targeted content to lawyers and staff. The targeted content requirements were based in part upon user personas created by Janders Dean, another technology vendor. The resulting portal is an intuitive way for users to find critical business information and collaborate with each other, connecting more than 3,200 people in 26 different countries.
"We couldn't have done it without XMLAW's software and services," said Tom Baldwin, Reed Smith's Chief Knowledge Officer. "Few vendors in the legal industry can accomplish a project of this scope in the timeframe we needed. Every member of the XMLAW team stepped up to the challenge to deliver the project on time, and they were excited to work on something that was creative and different."
