The market is shifting and software providers are keen to prove their capabilities in delivering SharePoint technology
London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) April 07, 2011
Leading law firm Mishcon de Reya, SharePoint integration specialists ClearPeople and document collaboration company Workshare begin development of a collaborative document and email management system built on Microsoft SharePoint 2010.
When it comes to changing the way 20 million documents and emails are managed, Nick Taylor, Director of IT has chosen his partners carefully.
"The Firm is a long time user of Workshare Professional (document comparison and metadata cleaning tool) and we're impressed with Workshare Point, their new SharePoint front end. ClearPeople have worked with us on several successful SharePoint projects. By involving ClearPeople and Workshare at such an embryonic stage for this new project, we have an opportunity to design a system that meets our long-term business objectives."
ClearPeople co-founder and Head of Business Solutions, Gabriel Karawani thinks Mishcon de Reyas vision will pay dividends.
"The market is shifting and software providers are keen to prove their capabilities in delivering SharePoint technology. Mishcon de Reya will therefore not only benefit from good timing, but will also influence and shape the future of Document Management on SharePoint. The beauty of this partnership is the common vision we all share, where Document Management is part of a larger collaborative community portal experience. As Mishcon de Reya's preferred SharePoint technology partner for the last two years we are extremely excited to work alongside both Mishcon de Reya and Workshare on this project."
Frank Boening, VP EMEA at Workshare believes that Mishcon de Reya could prove to be the ultimate design partner.
"This relationship is more than just strategic. By licensing Workshare Point and agreeing to become a design partner, Mishcon de Reya will have full access to our product managers and roadmap whilst we will be intimately involved in understanding their scope and requirements. We're also delighted to announce ClearPeople as our first Integration Partner with their unmatched vision and expertise in delivering SharePoint solutions. With the help of Mishcon de Reya and ClearPeople, Workshare Point will evolve to offer the world's best experience for managing documents and emails in SharePoint."
As the leading law firm in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For, Mishcon de Reya are committed to creating the best possible working environment for Partners and staff alike. "With technology becoming an increasingly important part of the working environment, we have been frustrated by the quality of technology solutions available in the market" says Bambos Georgiou, COO at Mishcon de Reya. "I see this project as a model way for suppliers, integrators and customers to work together to design user focused systems to address ever evolving real world needs. This strategic partnership will allow us to draw upon the strengths of each of the parties to help improve the user experience, our business efficiency and the quality of service we provide to our clients. Workshare and ClearPeople are the ideal strategic partners for us as they have both demonstrated their ability to understand users' needs and to deliver robust, well-designed tools that effectively deal with the complexities of the modern day working environment. With a shared vision and ambition, I am confident that over the next few years we will have one of the best purpose built collaborative platforms in the world."
ClearPeople will be demonstrating Workshare Point at the SharePoint Best Practise Conference from Monday 11th April until Wednesday 13th April, on Booth 20.
