IDOL Underpins Leading Nordic Law Firm's Knowledge and Document Management Strategy
CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, September 14, 2010 - Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in
infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced that Mannheimer
Swartling, the leading law firm in the Nordic region, is using Autonomy
iManage Universal Search (iUS) to boost collaboration, avoid duplication of
effort and bridge knowledge gaps within the firm. Leveraging Autonomy's
unique meaning-based platform, iUS enables lawyers across Mannheimer
Swartling's international offices to collaborate and efficiently leverage the
firm's best knowledge assets, thus providing clients with a consistent
quality of legal service. Lawyers benefit from an intuitive interface that
integrates seamlessly with WorkSite, the primary source for all of the firm's
client/ matter assets.
"Autonomy's purchase of Interwoven made the decision to select iManage
Universal Search, powered by the award winning IDOL platform, an easy one for
the firm," said Peter Coyet, Chief Technology Officer, Mannheimer Swartling.
"Autonomy's technology far surpassed other offerings that we were
investigating at the time."
Mannheimer Swartling is the leading full service business law firm in the
Nordic region with an extensive international practice. Mannheimer Swartling
turned to Autonomy to enable its geographically dispersed lawyers to easily
collaborate and leverage the knowledge residing in the firm's data
repositories. With the Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) as the single
technology powering both Autonomy iUS and Autonomy iManage WorkSite,
Mannheimer Swartling's lawyers from across all offices can tap into the
firm's global expertise pool and provide their multinational clients with
legal advice of consistent quality. Autonomy iUS' language agnosticism,
automatic categorization and clustering abilities and intuitive user
interface bring an unprecedented degree of contextual and conceptual
understanding to all of the firm's content for genuine ROI.
"Faced with an ever-growing onslaught of information, today's lawyers are
hard-pressed to access the right information easily and quickly," continued
Mr. Coyet. "In our commitment to enhance client service, increase
efficiencies and boost productivity, we took the strategic decision to move
far beyond legacy systems. Autonomy iManage Universal Search allows our
lawyers to instantly attain a holistic view of case matters and truly
leverage the knowledge assets within the firm to derive maximum value from
each billable hour."
"Prompted by increasing pressures to improve the productivity of fee
earners, the world's leading law firms are increasingly turning to
meaning-based solutions to boost productivity and gain a distinct competitive
advantage," commented Glenn Perachio, VP of Autonomy iManage, Legal
Solutions, EMEA. "We are delighted that Mannheimer Swartling has selected
iManage Universal Search for all of its knowledge management and high-end
information processing needs."
