Enable wins Stibbe as first client in mainland Europe
Enable Business Solutions has won its first client in mainland Europe: Stibbe has signed up to both Word-based legal pitch solution PitchPerfect and ExperienceManager, as Enable expands its global presence, led by firms in the United States.
The London-headquartered company, founded five years ago, in 2013 by former Tikit founder and director Liam Flanagan, now has clients that include firms in the UK Top 100, Am Law 100, Australia and offshore.
ExperienceManager is Enable’s latest product, allowing marketing professionals or lawyers to capture experience from across the firm by integrating with existing matter systems, importing from Excel, or directly inputting using online forms.
PitchPerfect works in harmony with Word to create complex image driven documents that are easy for users to edit. Clients to date include Gibson Dunn, Reed Smith and Baker Botts.
Speaking to Legal IT Insider, Flanagan said: “Stibbe started looking at PitchPerfect last year and said they were happy with their experience management. They were blown away when we showed them what we have built and now they are a client for both products.”
Experience management is an area of growing focus, serviced by vendors including Foundation Software Group and more recently Intapp.
Flanagan said: “If I have a £100m real estate project, I want to find out all the appropriate matters in that price range that the firm has worked on and who are the significant people. It can be a very traumatic and long-winded job in a law firm. Then when they do the proposal, firms want to push that information into it seamlessly and only have within a matter of weeks.
“ExperienceManager will be a seamless part of PitchPerfect, which will make it unique compared with other experience management products.”
ExperienceManager was formally launched by Enable at an event in February in Australia, hosted by Gilbert + Tobin, where Flanagan says the product was “greatly received.” Stibbe signed up on 1 March.
