City law firm RPC (Reynolds Porter Chamberlain LLP) has been shortlisted for an award in a competition that rewards the most innovative use of technology in the UK public and private sectors. The competition – called Innovation Nation – is being run by The Guardian, in conjunction with Virgin Media Business.

RPC is shortlisted in the Innovation in Enterprise category following  work on its Edge social business intrane. Developed in conjunction with Dachis Group, Edge uses social media content and aggregation tools – such as wikis and blogs – to help people across the business easily access the knowledge and insight they need to provide service to clients.

Director of Knowledge Management & Capability at RPC Andrew Woolfson says: “Edge allows us to tap into people’s wealth of information and expertise at RPC by breaking down the kinds of knowledge silo that often afflict professional services firms. Reflecting our open and innovative culture, Edge leads to increased transparency and collaboration across the business, which in turn helps us to work more efficiently and deliver better service to our clients.”
