Detroit-based Honigman Miller Schwartz & Cohn LLP is using IntApp Inc’s Integration Builder to improve data quality across firm systems and to automate reporting and event-driven alerts for lawyers and staff.

“We knew that Integration Builder would be a good investment for our firm in theory, but we never anticipated the scope or degree of positive impact it would have in practice,” said Craig Hardtke, Director of Technology, Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP. “We first used Integration Builder to communicate real-time client and matter information across our Aderant practice management, DTE Axiom time entry, Copitrak cost recovery and PSShip shipping applications. With those connections in place, we took on additional projects including automating alerts and workflows associated with managing our response to client engagement letters, updating calendar entries in our conference room scheduling software, and updating personnel information on our SharePoint intranet site.”

“Our rapid success with Integration Builder motivated us to leverage the platform to automate other important operational and business processes,” added Hardtke. “Having seen what the product can do, we’re now aiming to use it to eliminate duplicate data entry across the firm, which will reduce overhead for lawyers and staff and improve productivity.”
