With Rubus, send-and-file, file from inbox, search matters, syncing of key matters and other features are all available on BlackBerry 10 devices.
“The Rubus app has been a big step forward for our mobility strategy” says Jonathan . “The close integration with the document management system means that our teams can get much more done on the move.”
“Time that was previously less productive, such as train journeys or waiting at clients’ premises, can now be used to complete or progress matters, using the BlackBerry device.” added Nick Long, IT Business Manager.
Users on the move and Solicitors back at the office have full access to the document management system, helping to improve collaboration and reduce duplicated effort.
Previously, links within emails to the system would not open on the BlackBerry device. Now, users can click through to check a document and then forward it on, all within the Rubus app.
The send-and-file function means that users have all the benefits of the BlackBerry email interface, while still working fully within the document management system. If they’ve been working with files on the move, they haven’t lost time making sure everything is filed correctly when they return.
“We rolled out Rubus to 12 users for the initial trial,” says Nick. “It’s highly intuitive, so there was almost no training involved. Everyone was up to speed in about 15 minutes.
“The Appurity Connect technical team had a lot to do with that, due to their understanding of the pre-requisites of the project. They took the time to understand how our users worked, and to make sure the spec was aligned with their needs.”
With the trial successfully completed, Rubus has been rolled out to a further 100 users. Clarke Willmott has also used Appurity’s Technical Consultancy to upgrade to BES 12 from BES 10.
“Mobility is now a vital part of any legal practice” concludes Nick. “Clients expect easy access to the team working on their matters, and prompt resolution.
“Rubus allows our lawyers to keep their portfolios up-to-date and progressing rapidly to successful outcomes, because it gives them back so much time when they’re working on the move.”
