McAllister Olivarius deploys Repstor technologies for flexible matter management

Belfast, December 18th , 2018Repstor, the ECM software and matter management specialist, today announced that international law firm McAllister Olivarius has selected its affinity™ and assist™ solutions, to provide direct filing of case-related emails in SharePoint Online from Outlook.

The firm had migrated its office productivity, document management and collaboration tools to the cloud, adopting Microsoft SharePoint Online within Microsoft Office 365 (O365) as its new standardised application platform. However, McAllister Olivarius needed a way of organising and filing case related documents and emails.

This meant introducing a complete and reliable record of all correspondence, all retained in – and easily accessible from – a single central place. Repstor provides this platform and extends the powerful collaboration capabilities of Microsoft Office 365/SharePoint with a matter-centric collaboration and document management solution for legal matter management.

“Repstor has a very stable product which I can see becoming the de facto option for legal matter management in SharePoint Online,” explains Honza Cervenka, IT project manager, McAllister Olivarius. “The experience feels very familiar and intuitive to users, and the software is highly versatile. It’s also backed up by a great level of local support.”

An early trial confirmed that Repstor affinity and assist were a good fit, and supplemented SharePoint Online’s built-in browser interface well. The solution was deployed rapidly, thanks to Repstor’s specialist product consultants.

Next, the firm is due to trial Repstor’s mobile solution and Honza is enthusiastic about the potential for McAllister Olivarius team members to use Repstor’s email filing and access capabilities on the move: “As we are an international firm, our fee earners travel a lot, so having the ability to file case-related correspondence between locations will be invaluable in keeping our lawyers productive and in the loop,” adds Honza.

“We are delighted that another international law firm is benefitting from the flexibility, security and ease-of-use provided by Repstor,” comments Sheila Gormley, Global Head of Repstor’s Legal Solutions Division. “It further demonstrates how we are disrupting the market in legal matter management, allowing McAllister Olivarius to fully benefit from the wider suite of Microsoft’s cloud offerings.”
