According to Microsoft, 97% of Fortune 500 companies rely on Microsoft Power Platform to digitise their processes, with nearly 16 million monthly active users. In addition, the future of the CLM market is expected to double over $3 billion in the next five years. Aside from the strength of Microsoft technology, why go with Barhead?
‘Barhead is passionate about accelerating the take up of Microsoft technologies in legal teams. With the addition of our new Legal Tech team, Barhead brings a massive depth of experience to this space. In a major technology play, we are building another center of excellence on top of our existing technology expertise by specialising in legal solutions alongside industry specific solutions,’ said Doug Maloney, Head of Product and IP, Barhead Solutions.
Amanda offers another side of the coin. ‘There’s a lot of single purpose legal tech solutions on the market that either just solve document management, or contract management or matter management and a lot of legal teams struggle to get those solutions implemented because they’ve got to go through a lengthy IT process. Barhead seeks to empower everyone in the organisation, from the legal team and beyond, within a reasonable timeframe,’ said Amanda.
From an enablement point-of-view, lawyers spend 90% of their time working in Word, Outlook and other Microsoft products. In any platform, user adoption is crucial. ‘Because our solution is so tightly integrated with Microsoft 365, it gives a degree of familiarity. This high user adoption results in gains for functionality and change management,’ Amanda adds.
‘There’s high user adoption, ease of onboarding, reduce change management needs and intuitive familiarity, combined with an ability for ‘development at the speed of thought’. Microsoft is really boasting best in breed in terms of collaboration, productivity features and intelligent insights through dashboards and reporting. Not to mention that you can work anywhere, even from your mobile devices.’
Barhead is excited to be launching Consensus on the 11th of August. The company will be showcasing a series of webinars to demonstrate the power of Microsoft technologies for legal teams. Come and learn more about Consensus, shaping the future of workflow for legal and contracting teams.
