Gartner has positioned HighQ as a Visionary in its 2018 Magic Quadrant for Content Collaboration Platforms1 report. This is the first year HighQ has appeared in the Visionaries quadrant.

For us, being a visionary is more than just understanding, predicting and preparing for what the future may hold. It’s about creating tools with our clients in mind, understanding the way they work and building solutions that offer them a competitive advantage. The legal landscape is constantly evolving and our clients trust us to keep them ahead of the curve.

While being named a Visionary by Gartner is an honor and an important step in the development of our intelligent work platform, we believe the most crucial feedback comes from our clients.

So why do HighQ clients believe we are visionaries?

Our commitment to the legal industry

“HighQ is very cognisant of the legal industry and the nature and extent of the challenges law firms face. The competing products were sector-agnostic and generic in nature, so the fact that HighQ has such a good understanding of legal sector requirements was very attractive to us.”

- Noel Carroll, McCann FitzGerald

Law firms have very specific requirements―they must be able to work efficiently, transparently and on the go. In addition, they must work together with a host of staff, vendors and contractors as well as internal and external teams to deliver their legal services. All of this must be done in a highly-secure environment that protects the business and their clients’ data, documents and information. HighQ does all of that and more.

Our ability to provide unparalleled security within the cloud

“Cloud security is so important to us and our clients. Being able to work with the HighQ team and their encryption key management solution to meet our security requirements was essential for us... Having that enhanced cloud security really was the tipping point in selecting HighQ as our platform of choice.”

- Jason Jones, Corrs Chambers Westgarth

Because our platform is built with lawyers in mind, it’s designed for security at every level. Whether working with internal or external teams, HighQ allows files to be uploaded in seconds and shared instantly while maintaining full access control and auditing. We have multiple security certifications across all seven of our data centres worldwide, including ISO 27001.

Our cutting-edge updates that offer a competitive advantage

“Not only can we now provide our clients with features they were asking us for, but we can also offer them extra value-added services thanks to the tools that we've gained in HighQ Collaborate.”

- James Hamilton, Infrastructure and Support Manager, Wright Hassall

Our clients use HighQ to win business. We design and deploy custom-branded work portals that make a huge impact during legal pitches. With our collaboration platform, firms can clearly demonstrate their value to clients with data visualizations, dynamic workflow processes and transparent matter management. In addition, our clients are able to create new revenue streams by productizing their unique legal knowledge and expertise.

Our dedication to creating easy-to-use tools

“HighQ’s product has always been incredibly user-friendly. We find that we hardly ever have to train people on the product, it’s very quick to set up, it’s highly secure and functional.”

- Jonathan Townend, Head of Technology Consulting, Eversheds

Client experience is at the forefront of everything we do. HighQ’s platform is designed to feel familiar and intuitive, while still offering the advanced functionality our clients require. We want to make internal and external communication and collaboration quick and simple. And with each release, we implement changes based directly on client suggestions and feedback.

We are grateful to work with so many clients who share our passion for innovation and inspire us to continue pursuing our vision for the future of HighQ. Read more about them and explore their stories visit our website: HighQ Case Studies.
