Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) August 19, 2013
Intapp, Inc., provider of innovative software products that enable law firms to thrive in an increasingly competitive marketplace, today announced that SJ Berwin, an international firm with more than 160 partners and over 1,100 employees, has selected Intapp Open to enhance firm conflicts management.
“We’ve worked very closely with Intapp through the early adopter programme for this new product initiative. Intapp have worked hard to understand our specific documented requirements and factor these into the design of their new conflicts product,” said Simon Kosminsky, IT Director, SJ Berwin LLP. “We know we set the bar high in this area – our requirements have been honed through many years of developing and using our own in-house conflicts product. I think it’s fair to say the team are very impressed with the progress Intapp is making.”
The Need for Fast, Flexible, Frictionless New Business Intake
Today, multiple market trends are putting new pressures on law firms to transform the way they evaluate and engage new business. These include clients with increasing service expectations, and a risk landscape with evolving regulatory rules, compliance requirements and professional standards. In response, firms are looking to increase the sophistication, efficiency and agility of their intake processes to better align client selection and terms of business with overall strategy, service models and internal policies.
Remaining competitive in this challenging environment requires a simplified, refined and innovative approach to new business inception. This innovation must address not only how intake processes are designed and executed, but also how they are updated and adapted over time in response to changing needs, how individuals interact with the software used to administer them, and how the entire system enables management of the complete client engagement and matter lifecycle. In short, inception must evolve.
Intapp Open – Intelligence Applied
Intapp Open is a true new business acceptance application. It doesn’t require firms to wrestle with development tools like Visual Studio and Windows Workflow or write a single line of custom code. It doesn’t complicate process design and management by requiring the use of Visio, SharePoint or other third-party tools or plug-ins.
Intapp Open replaces conventional “build it yourself” workflow software with an application specifically designed to streamline how new clients are evaluated and new matters are created. Intapp Open offers an intuitive, audience-specific user experience, tuned for management, lawyer, IT and risk stakeholders. The product can be deployed quickly and is easy to configure and adapt over time without engaging external consulting services.
Intapp Open offers unique features, including a flexible business rules engine that enables effective management of practice-specific matter evaluation procedures as well as conflicts clearance practices that may be centralized, distributed among lawyers and practice heads, or both, depending on firm preferences.
The product also includes an integrated question library that provides visibility into the practices, standards and insights developed by industry peers. And it delivers unique value for IT, with an architecture that simplifies change management, data integration and system automation.
“We’re delighted to add SJ Berwin to the growing roster of firms adopting Intapp Open to enhance their business acceptance practices,” said Kaye Sycamore, UK Managing Director, Intapp. “We welcome the opportunity to address the real-world requirements and benefit from the insights provided by our diverse customer community as we continue to extend the unique capabilities of the product.”
Intapp provides software products and services that enable law firms to thrive in an increasingly competitive marketplace by improving client service, increasing profitability, and reducing operational costs. Intapp's three practice groups (Revenue, Risk and Integration) focus on understanding existing pressures and emerging trends, and translate this knowledge into products and best practices. Intapp products are recognized as the most advanced in their respective categories - DTE Axiom and Time Builder for time entry and recording, Integration Builder for application integration and business process automation, Wall Builder for information and matter security, and Intapp Open for new business intake and conflicts management.
