Baker Donelson Deploys Recommind's Search and Email Solutions to Improve Operational Efficiency

Am Law 100 Firm Implements Enterprise Search and Email Management Across 18 Worldwide Offices

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2013) - Recommind, a leader in unstructured data management, analysis and governance technology, today announced that Am Law 100 firm Baker Donelson has chosen Recommind's solutions to power enterprise search and email management to seamlessly connect its 18 offices worldwide.

Baker Donelson will integrate Recommind's Decisiv™ Search with Microsoft SharePoint, giving the firm's 1,500 employees, including 675 attorneys and public policy advisors, the flexibility to search internal and external data sources with a single query, in order to quickly find necessary information which is then automatically organized by concept. In addition, Baker Donelson will pilot Decisiv Email, Recommind's robust and uniquely powerful solution for email management. By filing email messages accurately and automatically, Decisiv Email has been proven to increase productivity while reducing the risk of litigation and eDiscovery.

The success of Recommind's Decisiv Email and Search implementation at Baker Donelson was due to the expertise and experience of Baker Donelson's Chief Information Officer, John Green, and its Chief Knowledge Officer, Meredith Williams, as well as that of the Fireman & Company team, including its Founder and President, Joshua Fireman.

Among numerous significant benefits, this project will enable Baker Donelson to provide its employees with rapid access to complete project profiles, including related staff, documents, contact information and billable hours. Using Recommind's QwikFind toolbar, employees can search for internal documents, matters and expert information directly from their desktops.

"The amount of information we need to manage is growing fast, and the window of time we have to access it is quickly closing," said Meredith Williams, Chief Knowledge Officer at Baker Donelson. "We needed enterprise search and email management solutions that were both highly automated and incredibly precise, and could work effectively in an international context. It was a tall order, but we recognized that Recommind's technology would give us the speed, flexibility and accuracy that our team needs."

"Leading law firms like Baker Donelson are under tremendous pressure to find and organize information," said Craig Carpenter, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Recommind. "Manual filing and traditional keyword-based searches no longer get the job done. Recommind's solutions, based on the industry's most advanced machine-learning technology, give law firms and other enterprises a dramatically more effective way to manage and access their data."
