ATLANTA – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Aderant®, a leading global provider of business management software for law firms, today announced that prestigious Michigan-based Varnum LLP (“Varnum”) has purchased Aderant Expert . The firm chose Expert, a Business Law Practice Management System (PMS), because of its unmatched time and billing capabilities. In addition, Varnum has selected Aderant to host and maintain its Expert system through its cloud-based SaaS offering, Aderant Sierra. Sierra has a reputation for delivering superior performance, top-notch security, and the flexibility to improve a company’s services while maintaining seamless business operations. With Aderant managing Varnum’s Expert PMS infrastructure, the company can further focus its resources on strategic and market-oriented initiatives.
Steve Bentz, CFO of Varnum, has been tasked with overseeing the company’s software selection process. Bentz said, “Firm management software is an essential component of our firm’s operations and we look forward to leveraging Adderant Expert to meet the business needs of our firm and lawyers who work in multiple offices and locations. We hope that Expert will allow Varnum’s workflows to run smoothly, securely and efficiently.
Varnum will soon start implementing its Aderant Expert practice management system on the Sierra cloud platform. Upon completion of this project, the firm will deploy Aderant Spotlight, a powerful legal business intelligence technology. Through detailed analytics, Spotlight provides critical insights to law firm decision makers about profitability and financial success.
“Aderant is delighted to have Varnum as a new client for Expert through the Sierra SaaS and Spotlight offering,” said Deane S. Price, CEO of Aderant. “SaaS-based practice management solutions are growing in popularity among medium and large enterprises like Varnum, and business intelligence with actionable insights is more popular than ever. The Adderant team is eager to provide optimal technical expertise and project management to assist Varnum as the company deploys both Expert and Spotlight.
