Pinnacle focus on the Cloud
Uniquely among legal technology consultancies Pinnacle runs its business on the same systems used by its clients, providing both its staff and its clients with invaluable experience and perspective.

Over the past 18 months there has been a particular focus on the Cloud in response to partner Intapp’s own Cloud-first shift. First up for the Pinnacle team was migrating time recording from Elite 3E to Intapp’s Time 8 in the Cloud.

This project enabled the testing of Intapp’s new Common Data Store (CDS), and enhanced Integrate REST APIs; and saw the roll-out of mobile time recording to all staff, with seamless integration and flawless interaction with the on-premises Elite 3E-based finance system.

Comments Pinnacle’s Christopher Young: “We know that there will be a need for this mix of on and off-premises set up from our Elite and Intapp clients as it is not possible or desirable to transition all of the applications in a big bang to the Cloud. So we wanted to anticipate things and ensure we could deliver a proven, robust and authoritative answer when they came and asked ‘How do we take this or that product into the Cloud?”

A similar rationale has encouraged the more recent deployment of Intapp OnePlace (fka DealCloud); the successful migration of Intapp Flow to the Cloud; and a current project around Intapp Pricing. Continues Christopher: “These Cloud applications are new to us and the legal market, so getting them up and running in our own 80-strong organisation positions us extremely well when it comes to implementing and optimising the same for our clients.”

Pinnacle is sharing its accumulated experience and insight around Intapp Cloud – the considerations, challenges, timescales, costs and benefits – in a ‘lessons learned’ style free workshop. The half-day events can be organised for any individual firm either already committed to, or simply just considering, a move to the Cloud, with agendas and content designed to suit.
