FWBS claims it has taken a significant step beyond the current crop of legal apps-on-Citrix-on-iPad implementations with the new ‘designed for iPad’ version of the MatterSphere solution it launched earlier this year.

MatterSphere, which extends the FWBS MatterCentre’s focus to the cloud, providing law firms and legal departments with anywhere access to client and matter data, access via a rich graphical interface rather than HTML. The new iPad launch now means legal professionals can be provided with a rich user experience, utilising the latest in advanced touch screen technology to:
•    manage documents
•    time recording (both live and batch updating)
•    and firm wide search capabilities.

Mark Craddock, FWBS sales & marketing director said “Utilising MatterCentre and MatterSphere technology through their iPad device will provide our customers with a competitive edge, and greater efficiency. The ability to remotely access firm wide client and matter data, time record, exchange and upload documents from external clients, and speed through their workloads, all through iPad’s innovative touch screen interface is set to provide greater scope for how legal professionals are able to work.

“FWBS are delighted to be providing productivity gains to fee earners firm wide, with ease of adoption. The launch of MatterSphere, and its compatibility with the iPad devices, is the next step forward in MatterCentre’s continued development.”
