Legal IT Newswire deal news… Bennett Jones deploys HighQ to enhance client experience
HighQ is pleased to announce that Bennett Jones LLP has launched a firm-wide, branded collaboration portal built on the HighQ platform to improve the delivery of its legal services to clients around the globe. Bennett Jones is one of Canada’s premier business law firms and home to 400 lawyers and business advisors in Canada and internationally.
The firm will leverage HighQ’s software as a tool to empower better collaboration, project management, client experience and overall productivity. Bennett Jones’ customised platform will serve the firm’s desire to enable innovation in knowledge management and support their clients’ growing interest in using technology to manage their legal needs.
“It is important for us to have a platform that allows us to define and design unique solutions to meet our clients’ specific needs,” said Kate R. Simpson, National Director of Knowledge Management at Bennett Jones. “HighQ is not a one-size-fits-all technology; what we might use the platform for is limited only by our imaginations. We wanted to give our clients access to the leading technologies in the legal sphere. HighQ’s platform allows us to do just that, and in the knowledge that we have partnered with the leading provider for security, vision and legal experience.”
Bennett Jones’ investment in HighQ’s technology is integral to its approach to establish a technology infrastructure that allows the firm to increase productivity and drive efficiencies for its clients while also improving the client experience through greater transparency, communication, teamwork and accountability.
“We have admired Bennett Jones from the start of our relationship given their passion to provide clients value beyond legal services,” said Paul Hunt, chief revenue officer for HighQ. “HighQ is proud to partner with a firm that maintains such a forward-thinking approach to business. Bennett Jones is a technology leader that embraces solutions that can improve their business operations and, at the same time, solve legal and operational challenges faced by their clients.”
Bennett Jones’s deployment of HighQ’s software comes on the heels of the launch of two HighQ data centres in Canada, which provide additional infrastructure to serve as a resource to firms in Canada, as well as throughout North America.
