KnowledgeMill Innovating To Help Law Firms Do More for Less
(PRWEB) March 3, 2011
KnowledgeMill, a new Enterprise Content Management software market entrant, has today revealed how the power of its innovation has delivered significant business results for a leading Portuguese law firm, Rui Pena, Arnaut & Associados (RPA).
Hisham Anis, CEO of KnowledgeMill, said, “The vast majority of the information that legal firms have is unstructured data residing in word processing documents, email, presentations, rich-media files, spreadsheets and other file types. For many legal firms, presenting and delivering this content to the business is a significant challenge that they are failing to address fully.”
Anis says, "KnowledgeMill’s innovation enables management and delivery of your intellectual assets effectively, at the right time to the right business users. At RPA we provided a disciplined framework for ensuring email content is managed and recycled in alignment with their business model. ‘ContextStore for Exchange’ allows lawyers and support staff to intuitively organize and manage email data and attachments by legal matter through our unique interface ‘OnePlace’. In doing so, lawyers and support staff enable email data to be shared , managed and organized effectively and non-business important email to be quickly identified and dealt with, rather than relying on IT to do this for them. The net result is more accessible information, less cost and greater compliance.”
Hélder Santos, IT Manager at RPA, says, "We're very pleased with the results KnowledgeMill has delivered for us with their ContextStore product. A great deal of our business communication and workflow is centered on email, and it is no surprise that as volumes of email data are increasing we are presented with a significant management problem. KnowledgeMill has helped us tackle that problem head on and deliver for our business an intuitive solution that allows us to manage email by matter, and importantly comply quickly with eDiscovery and Search requests.”
With backgrounds working for a number of large legal firms, it’s understandable that Anis and his team have a focus and interest in delivering solutions for the legal sector. He says, “Managing content across the practice, whilst keeping cost down and delivering innovation and value is a major workflow challenge to any firm. To help meet this challenge, KnowledgeMill’s solutions work when you’re mobile through web, your iPhone or Blackberry, and whether you are hosting your own IT infrastructure, or hosting it from within the Cloud.”
Anis has plans to deliver more. “Our mission is to become the leading provider of innovative, efficient, context enriched Enterprise Content Management solutions for the legal sector and other industry verticals, both in the Cloud and for traditionally hosted solutions. The results we have delivered for RPA show that we are well positioned to do this.”
