Vandeventer Black LLP, an “AV” rated full-service business law firm with offices in Virginia, North Carolina, California, and Germany, has chosen Algonquin Studios and their web content management system, QuantumCMS, for the development and hosting of the firm’s new web site.
The new site uses Vandeventer Black’s existing design, but has been rebuilt on QuantumCMS to allow the firm to utilize Algonquin’s Legal Link module.
When looking for a new technology vendor, the web site committee at Vandeventer Black was pleased to learn that Algonquin Studios had already invested significant time to understand how law firms work and think; building platforms and capabilities into its products that Vandeventer’s team found compelling and useful.
“The leadership at Vandeventer Black realized that Algonquin had invested significant time and effort to understand how law firms work and they were drawn to the fact that many of the features they’d kicked around as concepts for a custom-built web site already existed on our platform,” says Algonquin Studios’ Sales Consultant, Tom Garigen. “Seeing their ideas come to life in QuantumCMS helped convince the firm that we take our commitment to our legal clients very seriously.”
Specifically, the firm was pleased to be able to take advantage Legal Link, Algonquin’s legal industry-specific platform that offers on-demand collateral creation and generation and practice management tools, which closely matched a vision the firm’s management team had held for the next iteration of its site. Used in addition to the full-featured web content management tools available in QuantumCMS, Legal Link allows Vandeventer Black to leverage its web presence as a strategic element in its overall marketing plan by controlling and managing all the related data between attorneys, practice areas, office locations and more, in seconds, and creating proposals and other print-ready PDF documents using content that is already published on the firm’s web site.
This site is also an excellent example of Algonquin’s responsive web design approach, built to intuitively adjust to accommodate the size of the screens being used to view it and offering the best possible user experience in today’s mobile-friendly world.
