"Decisiv Email is a critical component of our Firm's information management strategy. It will allow us to consolidate various email repositories, including email archives and public folders, and help our attorneys easily organize and manage client-related email with simple filing options and powerful searching," said Brett C. Don, Chief Information Officer, Dickstein Shapiro.

After many months of research and evaluation, we are convinced that Decisiv Email is the best email management solution for our Firm."

To further maximize the value and reduce the risks associated with email, Dickstein Shapiro will also be implementing Recommind's MindServer Search.
