LawPort’s design is based on a deep understanding of attorney workflows and familiarity with critical firm systems such as Elite, Interwoven and Interaction. In addition, LawPort was developed as a SharePoint accelerator – meaning you don’t need costly and time consuming SharePoint consulting or development, making it perfect for midsize firms. Finally, implementation is fast, leading to rapid return on investment. Check out CIO STORY to read about how LawPort played an integral part in supporting the internal processes of two law firms as they merged to become Bingham, Greenebaum Doll LLP. The merging firms relied heavily upon LawPort to help streamline internal/external communications, collaboration, management of multiple distributed information systems, and seamless client service during the merger – until the separate core software applications and networks of both firms were consolidated into one, and remains the legal portal platform which continues to meet the firm’s commitment to providing outstanding legal services and solutions for their clients.

The user interface is the knowledge management system point of entry providing navigation, search, communications, an index, a knowledge map, and links.
Best KM search engines enable searching for sites, documents, files, lists, content, and answers to questions, plus ability to search on text or metadata
Knowledge managers use taxonomy, folksonomy, metadata and tags to classify content so it’s easily discoverable through navigation, search and links.
KM leaders should base strategy on user input to determine needs to address. Conduct surveys to capture challenges, opportunities, and suggestions.
