Lewis Silkin Selects Handshake Software for SharePoint Portal & Universal Search

London-based law firm is expansion of Handshake Software’s international presence

Alpharetta, Georgia – August 12, 2016Handshake Software, Inc., the market leading, award-winning provider of SharePoint-based products and services to the legal market, today announced London-based Lewis Silkin LLP’s selection of Handshake Software’s Relationship Framework knowledge management platform and Handshake Universal Search.  Lewis Silkin will leverage Handshake Software to connect its key line of business systems to create a dynamic attorney, client and matter centric portal as well as create their next generation universal search platform.

The addition of Lewis Silkin continues the trend of accelerated growth for various Handshake Software solutions globally including Microsoft SharePoint-based intranets, enterprise search and integrated expertise location.

“After a thorough evaluation and review, we chose Handshake Software as a critical component of our state-of-the-art intranet and universal search initiative” stated Jan DeCerce, Lewis Silkin’s chief operating officer. “We will leverage Handshake and SharePoint in building a one-stop portal for our lawyers and business services people which integrates our PMS (Elite 3E), CRM (InterAction) and DMS (SharePoint) data to provide on-demand, centralised information around people, clients, and matters as well as unifying the data in a single search experience.”

“Lewis Silkin’s commitment to deliver one-stop information to its attorneys and firm users is directly aligned with Handshake Software’s strategy to develop complete legal KM solutions,” said Glenn LaForce, Handshake Software’s executive vice president & chief strategy officer. “We are thrilled to have them join the Handshake Software family as we aggressively expand into the UK market.”

Handshake Software greatly reduces the time, effort and cost of integrating and presenting business information with Microsoft SharePoint, Search, Microsoft Office and mobile devices and facilitates firms’ knowledge management initiatives with its ‘All Knowledge, One Place’ approach.
