“Using Repstor affinity has been a revelation for us in the Legal department at KANA. I use the product myself on a daily basis and find it incredibly easy and intuitive to use. John Murray, Head of Legal at KANA
(PRWEB UK) 7 November 2014
KANA helps global organizations including many of the Fortune 500, mid-market businesses and public sector agencies optimize their engagements with consistent and contextual customer journeys across agent, web, social and mobile experiences. KANA has a legal team that is spread across multiple locations with a number of staff who travel extensively in support of its global business. The legal team manages contracts and other legal documents for the many thousands of customers serviced by the organization worldwide. This includes keeping relevant email and other content in customer folders so that the legal team is able to file, access, manage and collaborate around this content.
In order to support collaborative working, Microsoft® SharePoint® was in use to store legal documents and other content. While this meant that content was added on a consistent basis the process was time consuming. In particular the accessing and filing of legal documents and email was a laborious slow process with offline access proving challenging for the Legal team at KANA. Therefore KANA selected Repstor to enable email and other content to be quickly and easily filed into Microsoft® SharePoint® and to provide an effective offline working solution for its users.
- Despite having more than 10,000 folders of content, filing is fast and efficient using the assist product
- Users file relevant emails and other content immediately so everyone has access to current content more quickly improving collaboration
- Access to shared content is immediate with no waiting on uploads and downloads over slow networks
- Users have access to the content on and offline so they can work at a time convenient to them making collaboration easier
“Using Repstor affinity has been a revelation for us in the Legal department at KANA. I use the product myself on a daily basis and find it incredibly easy and intuitive to use. It has completely changed my filing behavior. Previously I left filing to a convenient time, but because of the ease with which I can file the content using affinity I now file as I go, which means the whole team has access immediately to the new files/email,” John Murray, Head of Legal at KANA.
Repstor was chosen because of a number of factors combining to make the Repstor products the most productive and effective solution for the KANA legal team in the various scenarios faced by users on a day to day basis. Repstor affinity and assist help the users get their day to day job done with the minimum of fuss therefore maximizing productivity.
The key points influencing the decision to deploy Repstor products were that they enable users to:
- effectively access SharePoint content (and other content) from within Microsoft Outlook
- load information quickly and effectively without waiting for uploads/downloads to complete
- quickly and easily file email content to the appropriate folder location
- handle large volumes of information and folders without slowing down Outlook
- work effectively when offline, including filing email and other content with offline access to key content
None of the other products met all of these requirements in the consistent way and with the high performance that the Repstor products exhibited, meaning that users are more productive and are able to take advantage of the software with zero training requirements. KANA now has a single source of legal content with no uncontrolled copies and duplication on users’ laptops.
