International law firm Linklaters has implemented a content management system to share 25 million documents between...
4,000 lawyers and business service team members across 31 offices in 24 countries.
Linklaters, which expects to produce 1.8 million documents in 2008, chose EMC Documentum for all its data because of the product's reputation, ease of use, and ability to integrate with the firm's Microsoft Sharepoint collaborative portal.
The firm also uses EMC Captiva to scan hard copy documents to provide global access to documents, which could be accessed only by local teams in the past.
"Making all documents instantly available has greatly increased productivity and efficiency of staff and freed up physical storage space in all offices," said Dave Bennett, associate director at Linklaters.
He said by using the combined platform provided by Documentum and Sharepoint, Linklaters has been able to standardise business processes and improve the efficiency of managing, accessing and sourcing information for lawyers and staff.
