Cirio - the first Swedish lawfirm to implement Workshare Transact online transaction management technology

2019.04.03

We are proud to announce that we have implemented Workshare Transact for our online transaction management.

The Workshare Transact solution represents an important step in Cirio’s continual drive for change and excellence in transaction management and service to its clients. The implementation of Workshare Transact will give clients a better overview of transactions while improving the productivity and security of transaction management.

Workshare Transact runs deal checklists through a secure online workspace, allowing all parties to access them, thus removing the pain of multiple e-mails. The checklist provides online access to the latest version of all transaction documents and simplifies the process of collecting conditions precedent and reviewing progress. Participants can connect to the workspace at any time, which makes the management of cross-border transactions, over several time zones, much smoother.

"When choosing Workshare Transact, we looked at the needs of our transactional lawyers and our existing technology to assess where the gaps were” said Dennis Luttropp Hansson, Head of Banking & Finance at Cirio. "We then looked at technology that would enable efficient collaboration between all parties. Now we can securely control and organise deal documents, spending less time on low-value work while bringing more value to our clients.”

"We are delighted to be partnering with Cirio as part of their wider technology solution portfolio,” said Michael Garrett, CEO of Workshare. “Our mission is to build a simpler, more collaborative and efficient process for our customers and their counterparties at every step of the deal process. The ability to collaborate seamlessly, securely and quickly, is fundamental to improving productivity in an increasingly competitive environment."
