LTN Readers Award Top Honors to Recommind's MindServer® Search

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - December 14, 2009) - Recommind, the leader in search-powered information risk management (IRM) software, announced today that it has won top honors in the 2009 Law Technology News Vendor Awards. The readers of Law Technology News selected Recommind's MindServer Search as the best product in the Knowledge Management Systems category. The 280,000 monthly readers of Law Technology News include in-house counsel, law-firm staff and independent legal technology professionals.

"Among the awards Recommind has won this year, this one has special significance," said Robert Tennant, CEO, Recommind. "The readers of Law Technology News live with the challenges of finding the precise information they need under ever-shorter deadlines, with ever-increasing stakes. They know better than anyone how important -- and how difficult -- it is to locate documents and experts across multiple offices, often in different countries with different languages. We developed our solutions in close collaboration with law firms and legal professionals to fully address their challenges and deliver clear value to our customers. We are pleased and very grateful to the legal technology community for recognizing our efforts with this prestigious honor."

Recommind's MindServer Search combines sophisticated concept search technology with a simple user interface that provides highly accurate results tailored to the information requirements of the organization and individual users. Its Matters and Expertise module provides a comprehensive, firm-wide view of matters, deals, cases and expertise within law firms and the vast array of expertise contained within those firms through the automated integration of information from myriad sources, including time and billing systems, CRM applications and other information repositories.

Like all Recommind products, MindServer Search is built on Recommind's CORE™ (Context Optimized Relevance Engine) platform, a comprehensive software suite that integrates an enterprise's numerous applications and information repositories, enabling fast, easy access to relevant information irrespective of keywords. The platform substantially reduces the time and costs involved in conducting legal research, while improving the quality of work delivered to the end client. Using patented search technology, MindServer Search dramatically improves access to a wide variety of information across large, distributed organizations and returns results in context for more accurate understanding and 'actionability' of the information.

Law Technology News also awarded Reed Smith LLP a gold medal for its revolutionary intranet portal, ouRSpace, which utilizes Recommind's MindServer Search technology as the backbone of its knowledge management platform. The magazine's panel of experts recognized Reed Smith for Most Innovative Use of Technology by a Law Firm and also named Reed Smith's Chief Knowledge Officer, Tom Baldwin, this year's Champion of Technology.
