Mitratech Releases TeamConnect® Service of Process (SOP) Manager 1.0 to Help Legal Departments Reduce Costly Manual SOP Retrieval Processes

SOP Manager Facilitates TeamConnect's Electronic Data and Document Retrieval From Clients' Registered Agents of Choice

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - July 10, 2007) - Mitratech, a leading provider of software solutions for legal departments to manage matters, risks, and ensure compliance, today announced the release of TeamConnect Service of Process Manager 1.0. SOP Manager 1.0 works in conjunction with a client's Registered Agent service and ensures that Service of Process is electronically received and automatically routed to the appropriate in-house and outside counsel.

Time and resource inefficiencies traditionally associated with uploading or manually re-keying SOP data are eliminated. SOP Manager's automatic and regular electronic retrieval provides immediate access to SOP data and documents.

The centralized electronic management of documents permits tighter control over information, and better regulation of response deadlines, especially Short Answer Dates, thereby minimizing potential risk.

Service of Process Manager 1.0 retrieves SOP data and documents, alerts appropriate counsel to action items, and incorporates SOP into the entire matter management life cycle.

TeamConnect's centralized matter management portal automatically manages clients' incoming service of process to deliver a number of operational benefits including:

--  Reduced cost-prohibitive and labor-intensive processes.
--  Freedom from SOP vendor-specificity.
--  Complete and reliable data capture.
--  Home page display of pending Service of Process information.
--  Effective creation of new TeamConnect matters with pre-populated SOP
    information.
--  Automatic upload of imaged documents.
    
"With corporate legal departments facing tighter budgets, properly addressing cost control and resource preservation is essential. With these objectives in mind, SOP Manager eliminates duplicative and labor-intensive processes," said Tim Strong, vice president of product development. "The offering allows our clients to maximize their TeamConnect investment by automating SOP retrieval, thereby minimizing the risk of missing or erroneous information and improving response times."
