shaking-hands-1240911-640x480Handshake Software has released a portal for NetDocuments that allows NetDocuments customers to view their financial, CRM, HR, news and legal research information about clients and matters from within their document management system without requiring Sharepoint.

Handshake Software customers running NetDocuments can leverage all of their Handshake-SharePoint portal capabilities through the new product including integrations of leading legal line of business applications, legal research and various third party integrations.

In a move that may particularly appeal to the small-to-medium law firms that won’t touch SharePoint with a barge pole, firms can now provide users with the Handshake portal and intranet functionality in NetDocuments without installing SharePoint.

“As both a Handshake Software and NetDocuments customer, we are really excited to see these two companies working together to bring true innovation to our industry.  What they are doing is fantastic,” stated Martin Metz, chief information officer at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman.

“Law firms produce documents and emails, but they alone don’t provide a complete view of a bigger picture.  Handshake’s new strategy brings other key information sources together, like financial, docket and knowledge, and integrates this data to form a complete view of matter information – and now within the NetDocuments interface.  Bravo!”
