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's perfect for us to update processes that we use daily at Curri. This is a very important piece of our business because being a start-up, things are always changing. I'd say it's pretty appropriate for all needs related to a knowledge base.

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.

  • Sometimes the search doesn't want to pull up what I've entered, even though when I find what I'm looking for, it's named exactly what I was searching for.

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

Most of the systems I have used in the past that house knowledge feel clunky and difficult to navigate. They are not easily modified and are not easy to access when you are working directly with a customer. They do not feel linear and sometimes feel overwhelming when you are trying to learn new processes. Overall, I've never used a KB that I felt did a great job at housing the information I would need to refresh and train. Slab is easy to navigate, easy to use and overall very seamless in delivering information. I never feel overwhelmed and the simplicity in it's layout allows users to access information without feeling discouraged trying to locate it
