Company Already Serves Users At 96% Of America's Top Law Firms SAN MATEO, Calif., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- PBworks, formerly known as PBwiki (the company officially announced the name change today), the leading provider of hosted collaboration solutions for business and education, today announced the launch of PBworks Legal Edition, the first of the company's market-specific solutions. PBworks Legal Edition applies hosted collaboration to the unique business needs of law firms and corporate counsel. Law firms and corporate attorneys use PBworks Legal Edition to improve the efficiency of specific practice areas, increase the productivity of both attorneys and staff, and provide greater client satisfaction. Customers can use the product for all of the following uses under a single license: -- A customizable legal knowledgebase to improve specific practice areas -- A better way to manage complex cases and their case teams -- A simple way to share documents and collaborate with clients -- A faster, better, more affordable electronic deal room -- An easy-to-use intranet "Given the traction we've seen in the legal market, adding Legal Edition to our product suite was a natural move," said Jim Groff, PBworks CEO. "24 of the top 25 law firms in America are either customers of PBworks or have staff members using our free product." Customers like Bracewell & Giuliani are adopting Legal Edition, thanks in part to PBworks' strength in usability. "We created a few test workspaces on other platforms," said David Shargel of Bracewell & Giuliani. "PBworks was much easier to use, and looked better." Analysts feel the legal market is ready for collaboration solutions. "PBworks is putting itself ahead of the pack with a set of templates and services that target the Legal Industry," said Enterprise 2.0 analyst Gil Yehuda. "With this new offering, and promises of future enhancements, law firms should take a serious look at how they are supporting their internal information flow and determine if PBworks can help them. Moreover, by adding new encryption and auditing capabilities, PBworks is raising the standards for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) vendors, and are addressing the number one security concern that many IT departments have with SaaS." PBworks Legal Edition includes all of the features of PBworks Professional Plus, such as unlimited storage for documents and files, full-text search of document content, Mobile Edition access via Blackberry and iPhone, and 24/7 customer service. The new solution adds complete audit logs of all activity, built-in legal templates that firms can customize for their business processes, and bundled professional services to optimize the rollout and adoption process.
