The user of Handshake takes a certain amount of user computer literacy and the user needs to be resourceful. When building our site, I needed to google quite a bit. On the contrary, if budget allows, Handshake developers will do it all for you.

It is especially suitable for working together remotely or from disconnected locations, allowing them to access collaborative work and tools to facilitate communication. Internal and cloud options also seem to offer a flexible adoption roadmap. It addresses the problems of efficient collaboration and effective communication between employees, particularly with regard to working and completing projects

Pros
Aderant
  • The main reason we got Handshake was to display visual gadgets for our accounting systems. We always provided spreadsheet type reports, but pictures and more engaging. Attorney gets a dashboard in real time of where they stand financially.
  • Additional use as FAQ's in different departments in the firm, that is, accounting, IT, and office services.
  • Knowledgebase - How to's and software.

  • I personally love the user-friendly interface. Often you find software which is difficult to learn, and not utilized as often as it should be because of this. With eXo Platform, the interface is easy to understand, and is not particularly challenging to new users and non-tech savvy individuals.
  • It allows you to get work done, without feeling like using the platform is part of the actual work. It feels more like a natural system you would use in your leisure time to connect with friends and family, rather than a social intranet designed to facilitate employee communication and help you meet project deadlines.
  • The cloud platform allows users to easily share information and files, and collaborate on project work. Another benefit to this is it makes mobile collaboration possible.

Cons
Aderant
  • Documentation is weak, but hopefully, since Aderant just acquired the company, that will improve

  • As the platform appears to be packed with features and functionality it may be a bit daunting at first to get used to it.
  • The initial adoption in a corporate setting would involve a number of questions, such as integration with other applications, data migration and security and the optimum adoption road map in order to maximise the benefit from the platform.

This platform has a pleasant user interface, is very easy to use, and offers a lot of useful accessories and add-ons. At first it can be a little intimidating, but it doesn't take long to get used to it. It is considerably reliable and safe. Facilitates connection and collaboration with coworkers. It provides tools that allow you to capture, organize and act according to the internal knowledge of your team.

The eXo platform offers a high quality support, which satisfies the requirements of our company, especially when the platform begins to be used, due to the amount of tools that can be overwhelming. Support responses are made in a short period of time.

None. Always need about Handshake's interface with Aderant, way before Aderant purchased them. Seemed like a natural fit.

eXo Platform
We selected this product firstly because it's easy to use for end-users, even if it's not so simple to configure from an administrative point of view. Managing and tracking overall activities is quite easy and it's also possible to have an immediate vision of everything that is done on the platform. Users feel confident and are encouraged to share resources.
