Phillips Lytle Selects Recommind's Decisiv Technology Suite to Optimize Information Management

Leading Regional Law Firm to Provide Single, Global Unified Enterprise Email Management and Enterprise Search Solution

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - Recommind, the leader in predictive information management and analysis software, today announced that Phillips Lytle, a leading regional law firm which practices in banking and financial services, business, environmental, labor, litigation, and real estate, has selected Recommind's Decisiv™ Email, Decisiv Search, Matters & Expertise and QwikFind for accurate, automated enterprise search across the firm.

With clients on the FORTUNE® 500 list and more than 350 users in multiple New York offices, Phillips Lytle recognized the need for an enterprise email management system. After assessing multiple vendors, the firm chose Recommind's Decisiv Email to implement a unified filing, automatic content categorization, storage and simplified retrieval tool across the firm. This robust information management system increases collaboration and reduces litigation risks and eDiscovery costs by creating a single email repository that can be accessed by any user -- resulting in a more intelligent and cost-efficient records management solution throughout the law firm.

Along with Decisiv Email, Phillips Lytle also selected Recommind's Decisiv Search software to improve the quality of content search results within the firm and beyond. This sophisticated technology will help users quickly and easily find relevant information located within emails as well as documents stored across various file systems. Decisiv Search will also provide rule-based access, enabling secure customization of results per user, providing highly accurate information as well as increased control over the display and ranking of the data.

The Matters & Expertise module extends the capability of enterprise search software to include specific topics of interest, attorney profiles, contact information, documents and billing information. By coupling this additional information with the firm's documents, Matters & Expertise provides a complete view of the profile the firm is managing. As documents change and new information is added, Decisiv Search Matters & Expertise crawls and updates the data, ensuring the most up-to-date information during document review cycles.

In addition, Phillips Lytle also selected the QwikFind toolbar, which integrates with Decisiv Search and Matters & Expertise, providing instant access to content stored within internal knowledge management systems and resources. QwikFind allows users to conduct an enterprise search for documents, matters and experts from the toolbar from their desktop and within multiple Microsoft products, including Word, Excel and Outlook, allowing the user to perform an enterprise search without opening a separate browser or application.

"After searching for the best-in-breed enterprise email management and search solution, we selected Recommind's Decisiv technology suite to accommodate the size of the firm, our multi-office structure, along with accuracy and efficiency to provide added value to our organization," explains John G. Schmidt, Phillips Lytle Partner and Chair of the firm's Technology and Information Services Committee. "This powerful but simple tool will have an immediate impact on efficiencies within the firm, allowing attorneys to search logically and find relevant knowledge across all offices, and ensure the best service to clients."

"Recommind's goal is to help clients realize the results they want to achieve. Phillips Lytle was looking for a robust and efficient system that was also customizable," said Georges Sabongui, Vice President of Worldwide Sales at Recommind. "Our industry-leading technology was able to provide optimal relevancy for information seekers and highly accurate results that are essential in today's fast-paced and information-rich legal industry. The Decisiv product suite easily integrates with any information source to provide employees with the most comprehensive access to the electronic information that is critical to their success."
