Eversheds is one of the world’s largest corporate law firms. They wanted to deliver legal advice to a global audience via cutting edge mobile and web technology. Eversheds had an existing Flash-based website which was not accessible on mobile devices. They wanted to increase the performance and audience reach of this website. Eversheds also wanted to improve the performance, design and functionality of the accompanying iPhone app.
In addition to re-writing the website and iPhone app from the ground up Eversheds wanted a flexible way to update both the website and app. They also wanted an easy way to communicate with their mobile users whilst measuring the effectiveness of both the website and their mobile app. calls9 was therefore engaged to provide full technical and creative delivery of this multi-platform project.
The design team began by creating a bespoke multi-platform brand identity to cover the web and mobile. The team called upon Eversheds' new brand guidelines and created a fresh and modern design that improved the overall user experience.
The final output was a consistent brand identity which could be used across other web and mobile projects in the future.
Calls9 used modern technology to deliver an app-like experience for desktop and tablet users. This approach improved the speed of information access, added rich functionality and enabled tablet users to access the content for the first time. A compelling iPhone app was also built which included country comparison functionality, personalised lists of favourite legal guidance and the ability to share information via email.
Over 3,000 legal guidance notes needed to be uploaded and managed. To pull this off we used Nucleus, our content and communications platform. Nucleus made it quick and easy for Eversheds to manage a single set of legal guidance that was available to both desktop and mobile users. All the data is backed up daily on our global cloud network meaning Eversheds can focus on their content and not worry about their data.
The Eversheds Global Employment & Pensions Law iPhone app and Web app have transformed how the firm is able to share legal information. The digital estate now includes fast access to country-specific legal information with the ability to compare different jurisdictions side by side.
A rich web experience and compelling iPhone app are made possible by Calls9 Nucleus which makes it easy to manage thousands of pieces of legal information. We have improved the user experience whilst reducing the effort required to manage a multi-platform digital estate.
