Who’s in & Who’s out?
All this month’s wins, deals, swapouts & rollouts in the UK, North American, EMEA and APAC sectors including Tikit scoring its first brace of wins for Carpe Diem Next Generation + why things at Coke go better with a Novatus portal + BigHand’s Esquire Innovations “Office Suite” is making waves in Australia + how Aderant is hoping to crack the Elite Enterprise market with MatterWorks and fill the Elite Engage gap + more firms across Europe are looking to Sysero as a knowledge management solution.
