Business Benefits

With BigHand Pricing and Profitability now available in the Cloud, BigHand has secured their leading position in the market as a provider of legal matter pricing software.

Continuous delivery to clients is now possible thanks to the automated deployment pipelines, meaning clients of BigHand Pricing and Profitability will receive regular updates.

  • In 15 months, BigHand Pricing and Profitability was moved to the Azure Cloud, with security being front and center of the development efforts.
  • Other areas of focus included integration with both cloud and on-premise Practice Management Systems (PMS), automated deployment and test coverage.

Business Need

With a fast growing client base, BigHand was looking for a technology partner to introduce cloud native products, starting with their Financial Productivity product BigHand Pricing and Profitability.

It was important to ensure that any changes made to the product in the Cloud would not negatively impact the on-premise solution.
