“The firm was looking for a comparison and data cleansing product that would help move us forward from our old solution,” said Simon Kosminsky, IT Director at SJ Berwin. “We looked at Litéra for a long time. We liked the product, the people, the company and the value for money. Our due diligence showed that Litéra met our standards in terms of reliability, ease of use and support.”
"In conjunction with our Document Production Unit and various secretaries and lawyers throughout the firm we undertook a comparison of WorkShare with Litéra using our standard methodology for product comparison" said Terry Lawley, project delivery manager, SJ Berwin.
