Likelihood to Recommend

Aderant Handshake

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.

Lexis Search Advantage

It is good for researching previous news stories on a subject and it can be helpful for tracking down people and their biographical information. If you're looking for academic studies on a subject, this is not the best place to go in my opinion. It is also not always current with addresses and phone numbers.

Pros

Aderant Handshake

  • 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.

Cons

Aderant Handshake

  • Documentation is weak, but hopefully, since Aderant just acquired the company, that will improve
David Tobin | TrustRadius Reviewer

Lexis Search Advantage

  • Not all address location information is accurate or up to date.
  • The previous search function for news stories was easier to use than what was changed last year.

It's been several years since I called for help but when I did, Lexis was very helpful.

Alternatives Considered

Aderant Handshake

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

Lexis Search Advantage

Lexis is much more refined in its results. I use it because it is a newsroom standard and it is what is provided by the company.

Return on Investment

Aderant Handshake

  • Hard to say, but ultimately putting knowledge in the hands of fee earners immediately it is positive.
David Tobin | TrustRadius Reviewer
