Montreal – April 10, 2014 – Tikit announces Goulston & Storrs has selected their Template Management System (TMS) to address the firm’s document production and template management needs.
Goulston & Storrs is an Am Law 200 law firm, with offices in Boston, New York, Washington, DC and Beijing. With nearly 200 lawyers across multiple disciplines, Goulston & Storrs is a real estate powerhouse with leading-edge corporate, capital markets and finance, litigation, and private client and trust practices. The firm’s dedication to providing prompt, practical legal advice, cost-efficiently and tailored to their clients’ business needs, has resulted in Goulston & Storrs being acknowledged for excellence by Chambers USA, BTI’s A-Team for Client Service, Best Lawyers in America and other leading industry rankings.
As legal work product is delivered in the majority of cases via a Microsoft Word document, law firms place a huge importance in its presentation and consistency, and at the same time expect efficiencies in its production. “A state of the art template management system must deliver on both fronts, including empowering the law firm to be self-reliant to accommodate change into the future,” says Peter Zver, president of Tikit North America.
Nancy MacDonald, Technology Services Manager for Goulston & Storrs, commented, “TMS hit the nail on the head in regard to our document creation and management requirements. With TMS, there is no need for custom code, so we will be able to create and manage templates ourselves, eliminating the firm’s dependence on key individuals and third party consultants. This will reduce deployment time and ultimately save us money. Also, since TMS is based around Windows Workflow, we will be able to determine how our template workflow should be designed – again all without code.” Nancy went on to say, “Tikit has an excellent track record in deploying this software for many large legal firms in the UK, but we are excited to be the first in the US to use this technology.”
“We are extremely excited to have partnered with Goulston & Storrs as part of the product’s launch in North America, a market that has clearly demonstrated a need for this type of solution,” says Peter Zver.
