Archer Norris, PLC Successfully Migrates to Aderant CompuLaw for its Firm-wide Rules-based Calendaring Solutionaderantuser
ATLANTA – August 13, 2013 – Aderant, the world’s largest independent legal software company, announced today that Archer Norris, PLC is successfully running Aderant CompuLaw throughout the firm. With the move to Aderant CompuLaw, the firm improved its risk management processes, overall productivity, user satisfaction, and system administration.
Archer Norris is a large law firm based in California that provides litigation and business transactional services. The firm began a comprehensive evaluation of calendaring solutions that would accommodate its growing needs.
A key requirement for Archer Norris was usability; users and attorneys needed a calendaring system that was intuitive and easy-to-use. It was essential that the new solution be exponentially more flexible than the old system, and it had to be easy to administrate. After looking at several products, Archer Norris selected Aderant CompuLaw because it met or exceeded all requirements from both the users and attorneys and the system administration and IT staff.
The firm-wide implementation of Aderant CompuLaw was completed in just two weeks. The firm immediately saw an improvement in workflow performance and efficiency. Users and attorneys quickly adopted CompuLaw and enjoyed the new capabilities and features not available in their previous system. One feature the firm especially appreciates is the automatic population of court-ruled deadlines and seamless synchronization to attorneys’ Microsoft Outlook calendars.
Another benefit of Aderant CompuLaw is access to Aderant’s support team of attorneys and system experts, services that are included with the firm’s annual maintenance. In addition to writing and monitoring the jurisdictional court rules, Aderant’s team of highly-trained attorneys quickly responds in writing to rules-related inquires. The well-written and researched CompuLaw attorney responses can then be forwarded throughout the firm, saving the firm both time and resources. With Aderant support, Archer Norris typically receives a response in less than an hour. The firm has not experienced any down time since switching to CompuLaw, and they submit fewer support calls now due to CompuLaw’s intuitive interface.
“Start with CompuLaw and stay with it,” states Alex Nyirendah, network manager for Archer Norris. “Other systems can be difficult and time consuming to manage, but with CompuLaw, I have time to breathe and our users and attorneys are happy!”
“Malpractice exposure from calendar-related errors is a significant risk for every lawyer and every firm. We are pleased that Archer Norris has joined the hundreds of firms who are greatly reducing that risk with Aderant CompuLaw,” said Chris Giglio, chief executive officer for Aderant. “CompuLaw is the most powerful and widely used legal calendar and matter management system available today, and all clients get the tremendous benefit of our team of in-house attorneys who constantly monitor rules and provide clients with unparalleled service.”
