Introducing new technology to your workplace can be tricky at the best of times, but traditional sectors (such as the legal sector) present unique challenges. When Ashtons Legal found the Jostle® intranet, they were struggling to efficiently share knowledge between team members. Since rolling out their new intranet, the solicitors firm has boosted communication, cut down on emails, visibly improved knowledge sharing, and enriched their company culture.
Each of Ashtons’ five UK offices is responsible for their local geography. This meant there were members on the same team (in different locations) who had never met or even communicated.
Ashtons wanted to change this. Fundamentally, they wanted to:
Improve connections across offices
Improve file sharing
They went searching for a new communications tool with these main goals in mind, when they found and chose the Jostle intranet. Since rolling it out, they've seen great success. They've achieved all their goals, and improved peer-to-peer recognition, sourced new internal resources and skills, and significantly reduced internal emails.
