Braithwaite, Boyle - the largest accident injury law firm in Alberta, Canada was looking for a contact management tool that would enable its staff to operate more efficiently. A key determinate was integration with Novell GroupWise and eDirectory, which were well established and highly valued among the employees of BB.

Receptionists at BB are the first tier in contact acquisition by determining if the person they are speaking with is eligible for representation. Within the screening process, the receptionist must also determine to which department and individual this new contact would best be suited. With the superior functionality of GroupWise and eDirectory, integrated with GroupLink's eReferrals contact management solution, an email can automatically be sent to the appropriate individual in the appropriate department - saving the organization valuable time and money.

"This system saves everyone time," said Jeff Dorey, Information Officer at Braithwaite, Boyle. "Within our first two weeks of implementation, we accumulated over 3,000 contacts. With GroupWise and GroupLink's eReferrals' ability to track and navigate these leads in such a user-friendly and effective manner is invaluable to us."

Not only is BB's productivity greatly increased, but also Dorey's IT training processes were significantly simplified, thanks to the ease of use and the organization's familiarity with GroupWise. Also, any critical or restricted information can be accessed only by the appropriate users within the organization, maintaining security, a key element of any law firm.
