U.S.A., Mar 29, 2012 (Thomson Reuters ONE via COMTEX) -- LONDON, 29 March, 2012 - Hubbard One, a leading provider of marketing and business development solutions and a Thomson Reuters business, today announced that international law firm Salans has selected its OneView Connect solution to redevelop its firm-wide intranet.

Hubbard One's OneView Connect is a web-based solution that brings together the content and functionality from multiple web applications and data sources into a single, integrated framework built exclusively for Microsoft® SharePoint®. It enables firms to use their information and data more effectively, be more productive and respond to customer demands in a more timely way.

Salans, a multi-national law firm with 22 offices across 17 countries, aimed to complement several years of IT refreshment work by replacing its existing intranet. The firm chose Hubbard One to deliver a new intranet platform which would improve control over information, work more quickly across multiple jurisdictions and offices, and produce better quality client outcomes.

The OneView Connect solution gives Salans an integrated approach to managing their new intranet site. It combines their new best of breed email system and document management functions, with the firm's existing customer relationship management (CRM) system, to further enhance the quality of their data.

In addition, OneView Connect enables Salans to integrate a disparate range of pre-defined sources of news and intelligence, such as their internal marketing department news and RSS feeds, for use by the company's legal practice groups. It also combines group calendar information across the business via OneView Connect's integration with Microsoft Outlook®.

"Over the past few years we have undertaken a range of IT refreshment projects, however, despite having best of breed individual systems, we lacked a solution to connect these products," said Marcel Henri, chief information officer for Salans. "The implementation of OneView Connect forms part of a larger internal knowledge management refresh, and enables us to bring information together in a collaborative space for the first time." "As firms continue to grow and develop internationally, it becomes crucial that they have an intranet that quickly provides their fee-earners with key information, wherever they are in the world," said Rob Saccone, vice president at Hubbard One. "We are delighted to see an international firm such as Salans recognise the benefits that OneView can bring."
