Fe- earners will be able to focus their time on the biggest areas of improvement and maximise the best business opportunities to improve profitability.

Stephenson Harwood chose Redwood after careful evaluation of a number of systems available on the market and the option of building an in-house solution. The firm eventually chose Redwood for the solution’s proven business intelligence analytics methodology, customisability and the team’s long track record of successful implementations at law firms.

“With a proven solution already available, undertaking a major development effort to create a new system doesn’t make business sense,” explained Lindsay Barthram, business systems manager, Stephenson Harwood LLP. “We want to rapidly deploy business intelligence so that the firm can accurately draw out the key information residing in our human resource, CRM and practice management systems and leverage analytics for business improvement and planning. Redwood will give us immediate return on our investment – we can see a huge likeness of approach between the Redwood methodology and our business.”

Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
