Sword ECM (part of the Sword Group of companies) has signed four new legal market clients for its Microsoft SharePoint consulting and development services. The four firms are Clifford Chance, Ince & Co, TLT and Taylor Vinters.

The latter firm’s head of IT Steve Sumner commented “It’s a nightmare, application code that has a vital amendment needed, time is pressing and it is holding up a rollout. Who do you call? Ghostbusters? No, Sword! We had just that situation with some Word VB .NET code, programmatically not that simple. We contacted Sword and they made someone available straight away… a Webex to show how the add-on worked, what we wanted it to do and away they went. Within an hour or two they were ready to inject the revised code and publish it. It worked like a dream. Now that’s what I call service, well actually brilliant service.”

• And congratulations to Terry Coyne, who has been the ‘face’ of Sword in the legal market and who has now been promoted to managing director of the Sword ECM business unit.
