CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, May 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
- Leading Central European Law Firm to Use Autonomy iManage WorkSite to Optimize Efficiency Through Automation
Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced that leading central European law firm Schoenherr has selected Autonomy's flagship legal document management platform, iManage WorkSite, for the effective management of its mission-critical electronic information across its twelve offices in central Europe. The purpose-built technology, powered by Autonomy's core infrastructure software, IDOL (the Intelligent Data Operating Layer), will enable Schoenherr to improve employee productivity and responsiveness, boost internal collaboration, and ultimately reduce costs and increase client satisfaction.
Schoenherr is one of the leading corporate law firms in central Europe, operating offices in twelve countries in the region. With a combination of experienced lawyers and young talent, the firm maintains a tradition of advising clients in all fields of commercial law, providing a seamless service that transcends national and company borders.
Autonomy iManage WorkSite utilizes the intelligence of IDOL and its full array of information processing capabilities to provide Schoenherr lawyers a single environment for storing, accessing, sharing, and reusing matter-centric content, as well as tracking related updates, milestones, and communications. Using WorkSite, Schoenherr lawyers will be able to quickly and seamlessly create electronic matter files containing all documents and emails related to a case, providing a comprehensive view of each client portfolio. Furthermore, users will be able to find any matter or document across the firm in seconds using powerful, meaning-based search capabilities, including metadata searching, file type analysis, date ranges and keyword searching.
Providing fast and intuitive access to relevant information, WorkSite will enable Schoenherr users to easily find and leverage firm expertise and matter knowledge in order to keep ahead of stringent case timelines and respond to client needs quickly and efficiently. WorkSite's centralized repository being much easier to manage than shared network drives built in-house, the solution will also improve IT efficiency, reducing operational costs.
"Schoenherr prides itself in being able to handle all aspects of even the most complex legal cases. We do this by assembling tailor-made workgroups across our network of offices and focusing on the sharing of resources, local knowledge and international expertise," said Georg Tichy, CFO at Schoenherr. "Adopting Autonomy iManage WorkSite has given us a document management platform that closely mirrors this vision of knowledge sharing and collaboration and we look forward to a great increase in productivity and client satisfaction as a result."
"Our solution is tailored to the way lawyers work, allowing them to access the information they need across a raft of data types, all on a single platform and through an intuitive interface," commented Glenn Perachio, VP Autonomy Protect Solutions EMEA. "For a multinational law firm such as Schoenherr, boasting a rich diversity of talents, languages and expertise amongst its lawyers, enabling collaboration among offices and workgroups is key to boosting productivity. Autonomy is uniquely positioned to assist Schoenherr in this initiative and make it a reality within a short timeframe."
Autonomy iManage is the undisputed leader in legal knowledge management, powering over 1,700 law firms globally, including 75% of the Global 100, 73% of AmLaw 100 and 75% of the 20 largest law firms in continental Europe. An increasing number of firms are standardizing on Autonomy iManage WorkSite for the management of their matter-centric electronic information, due to its unique conceptual capabilities, performance, security, scalability, ease-of-use, format and language agnosticism, and the ability to provide a comprehensive set of document management tools on one common platform.
