Xerox and legal and financial services software supplier 1stLegal are partnering on a content management offering that will help companies speed government- or court-mandated filings made necessary by tighter regulations.
Under the deal, 1stLegal will combine its software applications with Xerox's large scalability to provide advanced imaging and intelligent coding software to help organisations quickly retain, search and locate millions of documents as needed.
The partnership will benefit Fortune 1,000 companies that might be involved in major litigation cases involving the government, and the services can help provide the needed digital records in less than 24 hours.
Without the new services, pulling together the information could take weeks.
Mack McCormick, vice president of document, content and imaging at Xerox Global Services, said the partnership would allow companies to improve their response time to regulatory and litigation requirements facing all industries.
"The end result allows organisations to digitise business critical documents and enhance the usability of the converted information," he said.
