Aderant Pairs Handshake with EA Pro for Ultimate User Experience

Handshake-driven enhancements to the Expert Assistant Professional (EA Pro) feature will extend the current functionality and increase user efficiency.

ATLANTA – August 5, 2021 – Aderant, a global business management software provider for law firms, has announced the integration of its legal knowledge management solution, Handshake, with its popular EA Pro feature. Available to users of Aderant’s Expert law firm billing software, the EA Pro feature functions as a contextual menu, giving users a simplified view of their daily tasks along with links to complete each item. By integrating Handshake content into EA Pro, Aderant can provide more data, better visualizations, live interactions with information, and an all-around better experience.

While the EA Pro feature has been widely adopted and receives high marks for visibility, the Handshake integration was crucial in extending the usability of EA Pro beyond the information found in Expert. Handshake connectors supply more robust data and expand customization functionality to better serve the unique needs of each user. The integration also allows firms to use and reuse content across multiple platforms, including EA Pro, SharePoint, and Microsoft Teams. Combining the power of two of Aderant’s most successful and innovative products enables clients to gain insight into every aspect of their business by compiling data not only from Expert, but also from other Aderant products, non-Aderant products, and other 3rd party sources.

Commenting on the Handshake integration, Derek Schutz, Aderant Product Manager, remarked,

“This enhancement improves both products and is a long time coming. While EA Pro is not a true firm intranet portal, it provides a fantastic landing page for a partner, associate, or staff member to understand the core functions of their role and view the location of their next task. Handshake, which supplies a plethora of information from a host of sources, almost feels purpose-built to add on to the EA Pro platform, making it efficient for your firm to get the information it needs.”
