Over the years we have encountered and replaced several “in-house” CV database tools and file shares. These tools are often made by combining off the shelf components from various services such as pdf-generators, sharepoint, file shares and other database tools. Having a dedicated tool for the job has several benefits, and an extensive API ensures interoperability with other software.
What is the ROI of CV Partner? To get an idea of this we asked some of our clients at the annual user seminar. The attendees were a mix of both existing, new and potential CV Partner users. We are happy to report that most clients says it is easy to get started, and that they on average deliver more than 20 more bids and proposals after they get started with CV Partner compared with before. Also, we were happy to learn that everyone who uses CV Partner save a lot of time doing bids and proposals.

Every year, many law firms submit their relevant projects, lawyer profiles and references for annual rankings made by Legal 500 and Chambers.

By partly automating the formatting, updating and management of your CVs and Case studies, it saves you a lot of time and effort.
