ClearPeople push Sharepoint DMS into corporate sector

ClearPeople, the provider of SharePoint-based document management solutions for law firms (which include Linklaters’ spinoff Kinstellar and London based Winckworth Sherwood) have just announced their DMS solution has been tailored – based on client demand –for the corporate legal sector. ClearPeople’s latest implementations of this DMS for inhouse legal teams include a global defence manufacturer and GDF Suez, one of the world’s largest energy companies.
“With our solution and with the MacroView DMF integration, users can manage documents in approval and compliance processes directly from within the Microsoft Office applications they use every day, such as Outlook – letting the users work efficiently within their comfort zone,” said Gabriel Karawani who heads up ClearPeople’s Business Solutions team.
ClearPeople’s document management solution builds on SharePoint and, since most mid-size and large corporates already have a SharePoint strategy, the incremental costs of providing ClearPeople’s solution to legal teams is typically much lower than that of competing systems. “Most large corporate IT departments already have – or are building – SharePoint skills, so ClearPeople’s DM solution is simply an incremental step. In fact, when you look at the total cost of ownership, a DM solution from ClearPeople typically costs 50% or less than comparable solutions.” continued Karawani.
