BigHand announces the acquisition of Iphelion, to further bolster its document creation capability. Iphelion has 30,000 users, largely located across the UK and EMEA, with 20 of the UK Top-100 firms utilising their Template Management System ‘Outline’. This solution will complement BigHand’s existing Template Management Solution ‘BigHand Create’, ILTA’s number one provider for Template Management.
The acquisition also includes Iphelion’s Proposals Automation solution ‘PitchPoint’, which will extend BigHand’s product suite and will support linking both the Template Management and Matter Pricing solutions, to streamline the business development process within law firms.
Andy Driskell, Iphelion Managing Director and Simon Ashby-Crowe, Iphelion CTO, will join BigHand as full time employees and members of the senior BigHand team. Prior to co-founding Iphelion 13 years ago, Andy spent several years working within law firms and at OpenText, while Simon built his professional services experience working at KPMG.
Dan Speed, Managing Director of BigHand in the UK, commented: “We were aware of Iphelion’s success in the Top-100 with their Template Management solution and the great reputation they have built in the market. With this acquisition, we can now start to consider the value of making the whole proposals building process more seamless – one that inevitably includes business development content, templates and pricing. It is a very exciting concept and will bring another exceptional offering from BigHand to the market.”
