He remarked, “vi by Aderant has established an excellent reputation in the people management software space, successfully helping professional services firms to hire, develop and retain the people they cannot afford to lose. We are incredibly excited to be joining the Aderant family and are looking forward to both our people and technology becoming a part of their winning team and suite of solutions.”

All vi by Aderant employees are expected to come forward with the business to join Aderant.  Financial aspects of the agreement were not disclosed.
