O’Brien Winter Partners Case Study Image
It was incredibly beneficial for us to have a solution like Rainbow for communication, collaboration and field calls with our staff and clients. We implemented the solution just in time before the health crisis situation otherwise we would have lost a lot of business. If we can’t access our phones our business continuity is at risk. We were able to provide our team the ability to remote work using Rainbow. In addition, our phone related expenses have decreased by 50%.

Damien O’Brien, Solicitor and Partner, O’Brien Winter Partners


  • With the implementation of safety measures due to the recent global health crisis, working in the office and face-to-face meetings with clients was not an option. To keep business operations running smoothly the staff were required to work remotely.
  • In addition to office-based and remote communications, the management team at O’Brien Winter Partners required their team to be able to collaborate and exchange information through messaging, group chats, video, and information sharing, which was not possible with their existing system.
