London, 14th February 2012: Tikit, one of the largest independent suppliers of IT solutions to law firms today announced that it has provided the software and related services for a global template update as part of a Microsoft Office 2010 upgrade for Linklaters LLP, one of the world’s leading law firms.
With 27 offices in 19 countries, and more than 5,000 employees, the Microsoft Office Suite and customised Linklaters desktop are critical to ensuring Linklaters applies consistent, international standards to all their transactions. This ensures quality service around the globe, irrespective of the location of the transaction or the lawyers involved, making it easier for the firm’s clients to conduct business effectively.
The introduction of Office 2010 has provided additional opportunities to improve template management and ensure global consistency, and upgrade the firm’s IT infrastructure. Moving from physical equipment (i.e. servers) to a virtualised environment has reduced both cost and the firms’ carbon footprint.
Following a formal RFP process, Tikit were selected to provide the Template Management System (TMS) solution to deliver all Linklaters branded templates and related functionality in an Office 2010 environment.
One of Tikit’s flagship products, TMS allows firms to reduce the amount of in-template code and the number of templates that have to be managed. An administrator tool enables support teams to make simple changes to templates quickly and without requiring any development resource, ensuring increased productivity and reduced risk.
“The Office 2010 upgrade was a complex project for Linklaters, with the potential to adversely impact client service if not done well. It was important to take the opportunity to improve the effectiveness of our solutions, and to simplify and standardise our templates. The use of Tikit TMS provides us with a simple way of managing, updating and building templates that supports Linklaters geographic diversity.” Ian Makey, Linklaters, Office 2010 Project Sponsor.
“We are delighted that a law firm of Linklaters size and reputation in the market has chosen Tikit TMS as part of their major Office 2010 upgrade,” stated David Lumsden, CEO, Tikit. “At a time when top 100 law firms are looking to enhance efficiency and streamline the management of processes and systems, Tikit TMS offers consistency of document templates across multiple locations and languages.”
