The Firm Directory Connector

The Firm Directory Ingestion Connector for Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, and Elastic Cloud Enterprise

Neudesic’s The Firm Directory is the experience discovery system that helps you quickly find the right people in your firm to effectively tackle each unique client matter.

The Firm Directory provides the following benefits and capabilities:

  • Looking for someone in your firm with a bar admission in New York who speaks Italian and practices intellectual property in the auto industry? Just enter the qualifications you’re looking for in the customizable search fields and let The Firm Directory’s powerful Experience Finder do the rest.
  • Assemble pitch teams for proposal in a flash with People Pivot. Just enter education, bar admissions, judge clerkships or other search criteria to build lists of people with similar profile information. You can then view and navigate quickly through their profiles without losing search criteria or results.
  • The Research Directory module expands The Firm Directory’s people-centric directories to allow law firms to profile anything. Gain a better understanding of the most important aspects of your business such as cases, matters, practices, clients, alumni, resources, and more.
  • Automatically surface information captured in your internal systems in real-time and eliminate the need to input data manually. You can also customize profiles by adding fields that fit the needs of your firm. And, keep everything private with built-in security settings.
  • Add the on-premise social capabilities of Neudesic Pulse to The Firm Directory and share knowledge and information around sensitive clients, practices or matters quickly and easily while maintaining complete confidentiality. Pulse extends the power of The Firm Directory with ethical wall support, mobile capabilities, email integration and secure client access.
