March 4, 2008 - Law firm Addleshaw Goddard selected Metastorm BPM to streamline its new client acquisition process, commonly known as client matter inception.

Addleshaw Goddard will deploy Metastorm’s Client Matter Inception Process Pod developed. The Pod is built on the Metastorm BPM platform and benefits from capabilities such as audit trail, risk assessment, Lexcel compliance and anti money laundering – all of which are essential elements of the client matter inception process.

Previously, Addleshaw Goddard had used a largely paper-based workflow system it developed in-house, but found it was difficult to track the status of activity and control quality. It wanted to create a more efficient environment to track client matters, improve quality control and reduce risk by providing an audit trail of due diligence. Addleshaw Goddard chose the Metastorm BPM platform from Tikit after reviewing a number of suppliers.

“Metastorm business process management (BPM) is a well established product with a long track record of success. After reviewing other vendors and talking with existing Metastorm customers, it was clear that the Metastorm BPM platform was the right strategic decision for us,” said Daniel Simms, head of IT technical solutions, Addleshaw Goddard. “Metastorm’s platform offered the best scalability, flexibility and integration with our existing systems. We intend to leverage this to develop state of the art internal and client facing processes.”
