Enhance client relationships through better sharing and collaboration.
In April 2010 Bradford & Barthel completed the implementation and successful firm-wide roll-out of its Google Apps cloud-hosted collaboration platform. The Google Apps for Business strategy and implementation earned the firm two ILTA 2010 Distinguished Peer Awards and led to a major culture shift resulting in increased knowledge sharing, communication and collaboration within the firm and with firm clients.
"We’ve seen improved efficiency across our departments, areas of practice, and externally with our clients."
Since Bradford & Barthel migrated to Google Apps for Business collaboration has been made much easier and more efficient. Their solicitors have found Google Sites, Google Docs, and shared Google calendars to be intuitive and flexible. With Google Apps, constant innovation comes with the package and they are pleased by how many new features were introduced in the first year and a half alone: priority inbox, offline access and page-level permissions in Google Sites, to name a few.
As part of Bradford & Barthel competitive strategy moving forward, their goal is to use the video features of Google Hangouts and social tools of Google Plus to enhance collaboration both internally and with their clients. Google Apps has allowed Bradford & Barthel to adapt and succeed in the digital age as they move towards the year 2020. They've already seen a lot of productivity improvements and stronger relationships with their clients, and their firm’s approach to business is evolving as they continue to realise the benefits of technology in the legal industry.
"We feel confident that our data and the data of our clients is much safer than if we hosted it on premise ourselves."
"5 million businesses are already using Google Apps, with 5,000 new business signing up every day."
