Polycom® RealPresence® Mobile Video Enables Growing Law Firm Morris Polich & Purdy LLP To Improve Collaboration

Stocks in this article: PLCM

Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), today announced that the law firm of Morris Polich & Purdy LLP (MPP) is using Polycom® RealPresence® video solutions. These solutions facilitate face to face collaboration across five offices, with clients and contacts worldwide. Over the past five years, MPP has increased its number of offices from three to five, and the number of attorneys from 52 to 94.

MPP is using a variety of Polycom video solutions, including the secure and award-winning Polycom® RealPresence® Mobile app, RealPresence Desktop software and group video systems, all powered by the Polycom® RealPresence® Platform – the most interoperable and comprehensive UC&C software infrastructure for universal video collaboration. With offices in Los Angeles, Irvine, San Diego, San Francisco and Las Vegas, MPP represents clients in every state as well as U.S. possessions. The firm also has a wealth of international affiliations.

More Efficient and Personalized Recruitment Process

One of the significant Polycom video-enabled processes at MPP is streamlined recruitment, a multi-step process which involves candidates, managers, recruiters and HR professionals in multiple locations. The firm’s expansion created a need to accelerate this process, but it was important to maintain as much personal interaction between managers and candidates as possible to help managers make the best personnel decisions.

“MPP needed a powerful video solution to connect and empower managers to communicate and collaborate throughout the hiring process,” said George Brandon, partnership development leader at Morris, Polich & Purdy LLP. “Although in-person interviewing is still very important, Polycom has enabled MPP to build innovation into our recruitment process. Not only are we minimizing travel and maximizing hard cost savings, MPP is increasing productivity by replacing some business trips with video.”

Greater Collaboration across the Firm

MPP employees have downloaded Polycom RealPresence Mobile software app for their smartphones and tablets, giving them greater flexibility to participate in meetings from anywhere at any time. Additionally, MPP is also using Polycom video collaboration software on their desktops and laptops for meetings. Employees also use Polycom video collaboration where appropriate to enhance client service, such as conducting meetings and other client work via video, to expedite cases and keep costs in check while maintaining robust person-to-person interaction.
