Time spent searching for and retrieving information went from hours to seconds.
People rapidly switched to using Atlas because they know it helps them find what they want and improves productivity.
In addition to being quickly retrieved, information can now be targeted to those it is most relevant to and tracked to ensure it is read.
Weightman's previous platform for communicating and sharing data had become outdated and was no longer fit for purpose. The firm agreed that they needed to continue their investment in technology in order to improve the efficiency in how the firm collaborates and shares information.
Weightmans wanted a platform that encourages collaboration and sharing of knowledge, securely, across the firm. This would be a single resource people go to first thing in the morning and easily find everything they needed to know for that day.
Weightmans wanted a user-friendly core business platform that would serve their knowledge and communication needs long into the future.
Built to complement and extend Microsoft 365 technology and to support easy, intuitive collaboration and knowledge sharing, Atlas by ClearPeople has become the digital hub Weightmans envisioned.
Within a matter of days of implementing Atlas, people were seeing just how transformative it was going to be. A large law firm like Weightmans has an extensive store of collective intelligence, and Atlas enables people to tap into that efficiently and use it to maximum effect.
The aim is for Nimbus [Atlas] to be the resource
“everyone logs on to first thing in the morning and simply know
everything they need to know for that day.”
“We really want to remove the firm-wide reliance on network shares, duplications and out-of-date documents. Our aim is to help our people to manage their documents more effectively so that they retain their relevance and are accessible within our teams.”
“I’m excited to get to a point where we win the hearts and minds of people for Atlas to be the place where they want to go, because they find it useful.”
“We weren’t quite sure what the possibilities were with this kind of tech transformation, and I am pleasantly surprised at how quick and easy the Atlas platform is in refining searches and enabling me to find the information I need within seconds. A lot of that has come from the workshops we’ve had with ClearPeople.”
