CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Aug 16, 2016) - iManage today announced that adoption of iManage Work in corporate legal departments is accelerating and was the company's fastest growing customer segment in the last calendar quarter. Corporate legal departments selected iManage Work Product Management for its ability to streamline the flow of critical information and improve processes such as NDAs, basic claims, subpoena processing, contract management and more.
Corporate legal departments are facing significant increases in workload due to increasing corporate litigation, consolidations, mergers & acquisitions. At the same time, these groups are under greater pressure to govern and secure information completely to comply with corporate guidelines, and also to cut operating costs. These pressures are driving corporate legal departments to seek solutions that improve the productivity of staff, enhance service delivery to internal customers, but also meet professionals' increasing needs for security and information governance.
