(Vancouver, BC – 5 August 2004) Squire, Sanders & Dempsey LLP, with 25 offices throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, has chosen SydneyPLUS for MS-SQL & Oracle with an eye to enhancing the day-to-day business of being lawyers, as well as operating a library that runs better, faster and easier.
When considering a new library system, Squire, Sanders & Dempsey, like many other multi-jurisdictional law firms, was after a solution that provides a wealth of functionality, including: a centralized corporate library service; customizability; comprehensive searching capabilities and integrated serials management; frequent upgrades to avoid obsolescence; prompt helpful technical support; ODBC compliant technologies; multi-level security; and flexible reporting. SydneyPLUS for MS-SQL & Oracle meets all of these requirements and more.
By using SydneyPLUS' Knowledge Portal, the library at Squire, Sanders & Dempsey will be able to add a Library page to the firm's intranet. This will not only allow users to share knowledge more efficiently, but also act as a marketing tool for the library and the many services and resources it offers, thus raising the department's profile within the organization. The ability to share knowledge online will also spur on cost savings for the library, as staff will be able to determine what subscriptions are held at each office, and then share these subscriptions between offices. Furthermore, the customizability of SydneyPLUS will enable the library to be proactive, rather than reactive, as it will be able to set up automatic notifications for a variety of scenarios.
