Thomson Reuters extends Handshake partnership to ProView

Every day is new when you’re as big as Thomson Reuters, which said yesterday (21 February) that is has entered into a new strategic relationship with Handshake Software to provide seamless access to digital titles on Thomson Reuters ProView and embed eBook content solutions within the legal workflow.
It follows an announcement in December 2015 of a new strategic partnership between Thomson Reuters and Handshake Software, combining the former’s knowledge management software West km with Handshake’s SP Bridge (now Handshake Universal Search), which extends SharePoint search to a firm’s enterprise platform.
Thomson Reuters said yesterday: “The new relationship will combine Handshake Software’s Portals and Handshake Universal Search with ProView’s features that are specifically designed for professional use, such as navigation, annotation and sharing capabilities within digital libraries and titles.”
It added: “Through Handshake Portal, users can have the capability to find ProView content, as well as firm work product provided through West km, which also integrates with Handshake, providing comprehensive views across a firm’s information resources.”
