Congratulations to Bennett Jones LLP, 2010 Platinum winner of the Intranet Innovations Award from Step Two Design, announced Wednesday at KMWorld 2010 in Washington, DC. They won for a number of innovations on their intranet BenNet. Based on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS), their intranet includes features such as an improved Precedent system, a “find the children” feature that locates documents using the parent precedents, and BenNet Books.
From the Step Two Designs announcement:
Bennett Jones, the 2010 Platinum Award winner and the first law firm to win this award, has created a highly sophisticated site that allows users to find vital legal Precedent information quickly and easily. ‘BenNet’ is also a ‘social intranet’, replete with site-wide commenting, user-generated resource development in the form of BenNet Books (legal books created on specific topics), and more.
I happened to be at KMWorld and took the opportunity to interview Brian Bawden, National Director of Knowledge Management of Bennett Jones, for Slaw.ca about the award (we were in the press room but you can still hear how busy a conference it was!).
Special thanks to James Robertson, Managing Director of Step Two not only for presenting the award, but also for graciously acting as our camera man!
