IT: Sharing information
Kieran Flatt reports on the latest Legal IT survey, in association with Pivotal, which looks at the way firms implement client relationship management systems and finds that while it can be remarkably effective there is much room for improvement
In the legal sector, we often hear vague mutterings about client relationship management (CRM) rarely delivering a great deal of value and often creating a cynical mindset among lawyers. There are few great success stories, but perhaps this is because CRM is all about gaining competitive advantage. Law firms are often reticent about their marketing methods and many of them tend to treat all manifestations of direct salesmanship, including its more respectable relative, account management, with distaste if not with disdain. Perhaps those keeping quietest about CRM are those who have actually made it work.
