Consulting services vendors joined by Stickleback Technologies and Inflection IT
Law firms and professional services firms to benefit from access to domain experts and complementary expertise
NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. and BURLINGTON, Vt. (March 5, 2019) – Wilson Allen (the new name of Wilson Legal Solutions effective April 2019) and Aurora North Software, two expert providers of Intapp software implementation and consulting services, today announced the launch of the Professional Services Partner Alliance (PSPA) (www.pspalliance.com). PSPA aims to more effectively connect law firms, accounting firms, and capital markets firms with the best technology consultants and subject-matter experts for Intapp-related project work. Through PSPA, firms can achieve even greater returns on their investment in Intapp cloud and on-premises applications. Intapp provides a professional services platform delivering value to both firm partners and leaders and business services teams to win more business, operate more efficiently, manage risk and deliver overall client success.
PSPA founders and chairing members Aurora North and Wilson Allen, full-service providers and Intapp Certified Implementation Partners with experience spanning the entire Intapp solution portfolio, are joined by other Intapp specialist consulting partners including Stickleback Technologies and Inflection IT. Firms will be able to engage multiple PSPA members simultaneously via an integrated project management team, ideal for complex projects requiring a range of business, technical and subject matter expertise, as well as on-site support across multiple locations in the US and internationally.
“The timing of this new alliance couldn’t be better. The momentum behind the Intapp platform continues to snowball, with firms looking to implement new solutions, upgrade existing software, and take advantage of the significant new benefits migrating to Intapp in the cloud offers,” said Norm Mullock, vice president of strategy, Wilson Allen. “There is a tremendous opportunity for the entire ecosystem to grow and evolve in a way that’s a clear ‘win-win’ for clients and partners alike.”
With membership open to qualified service organizations, PSPA will foster greater collaboration among the Intapp partner ecosystem, including enabling joint project work and encouraging peer referrals when in the best interest of clients.
“We looked to professional networks and membership organizations developed by law firms and accounting firms as a model for this alliance. It’s all about matching the best expertise to serve specific client needs — much like our customers do for their own clients — with their success in mind,” said Brian Lynch, director, Aurora North Software. “As firms adopt the Intapp platform to address an increasingly diverse set of business and operational challenges, it has become clear that they could benefit from closer collaboration among consulting providers. We’re making it simple to take advantage of ‘best-in-class,’ integrated consulting partners to more effectively navigate complex project challenges.”
Broad experience, specialized skill
Collectively, PSPA members offer expertise spanning the entire Intapp application portfolio and extensive knowledge in several unique domains, including:
- Specialist expertise in applying Intapp solutions to IP prosecution and complex business process and information management workflows
- In-depth experience involving practice management systems like Elite 3E and Elite Enterprise, Aderant, and LexisOne as well as areas including CRM, business intelligence, and pricing
- Extensive skill in Intapp Walls implementations, upgrades, migrations, mergers, and best practices consulting and training
- Substantial focus in business process management (BPM) and migration from legacy applications including Metastorm and LegalKEY
“As multiple industries continue to adopt our professional services platform, we are pleased to see this collaboration among members of our partner community,” said Don Coleman, chief operating officer, Intapp. “Aurora North Software and Wilson Allen are two of our premier certified implementation partners. We believe that this alliance can accelerate success for our mutual clients.”
