Microsoft Matter Center for Office 365 for Law Firms & In-house Counsel

The Claim: Microsoft Matter Center for Office 365 boosts law firm productivity:


I've used SharePoint for many years, and was even on stage at the launch of SharePoint 2007 in Sydney & Melbourne, courtesy of a joint project with my law firm and Microsoft. SharePoint has its place, but it's not won me over as a true document management system yet.

Office 365's incarnation of SharePoint takes us a lot closer - and Matter Center might tip the balance for me, although I reserve judgement until I can get substantial hands-on time. It relys on OneDrive for Business, which I do currently use, and I have a few reservations about it at the moment. The software isn't as mature as DropBox, and it shows in a few clumsy ways.

I plan to do a full review of Matter Center for Office 365 in the not too distant future.
