About Bedell Cristin
Bedell Cristin is an offshore law firm working across four legal jurisdictions and six office locations – BVI, Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey, London, and Singapore.
In autumn 2018, the firm appointed its first Head of Group Knowledge to oversee the strategic development and implementation of its global knowledge programmes.
Business intelligence, thought leadership, added value services and current awareness form an integral part of this programme, alongside other strategic knowledge projects, systems, and solutions – all designed to support the growth of the business.
About the current awareness implementation
Bedell Cristin's key drivers for the initial project were to reduce team time spent aggregating and reviewing legal, news and market intelligence sources, efficiently disseminate content updates to teams in other time zones at times to suit them, and support their thought leadership programme and business development activities.
Lucy Wright, Knowledge Analyst, who worked on the initial implementation of the project, said,
"Scanning 90 plus websites daily was a full time job. We were keen to automate this process and create a more targeted solution for ourselves and our clients, whilst retaining complete control over sources, content, and curation".
Catherine Cadman, Head of Group Knowledge summarises the success of the project as follows,
"Using Vable has transformed our ability to share key business content efficiently across our business and beyond. What is more, as a small team, we would not have been able to achieve other critical aspects of our global knowledge strategy for our legal teams and our clients, without the time savings which Vable generated for us".
