Stikeman Elliott Selects Recommind for Email Management

Leading Canadian Firm Adds Email Management Solution to Provide Unified Access to Email, Documents, Matters and Expertise

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2011) - Recommind, the leader in predictive information management software, today announced that Stikeman Elliott LLP, one of Canada's leading business law firms, has selected Recommind's Decisiv Email Management for next-generation contextual email management.

Stikeman Elliott has already implemented Decisiv Search, the industry's leading concept-based search technology that provides highly accurate results tailored to the information requirements of the firm. With the sophisticated search solution implemented across all its offices, Stikeman's 1300 members are able to instantly access information from throughout the entire firm, making them more productive and able to react quickly to their client's needs.

In addition to search, Decisiv Email Management will help Stikeman by providing unique Predictive Filing™ capabilities and efficient storage of matter based email information, including robust email retrieval functionalities. The Predictive Filing technology allows for the accurate and automatic classification of emails, thereby enabling its users to focus on revenue generating activities rather than the repetitive and highly manual task of filing emails.

"In today's fast paced legal environment, lawyers need and expect to be able to find the right information instantly. We want to improve access to not only firm documents, but also to email where a vast amount of firm knowledge resides," said Andrea Alliston, partner knowledge management, Stikeman Elliott. "After an extensive review of the products available in the marketplace, we found that Recommind's Decisiv Search and Decisiv Email Management products would allow us to capture and access all of the information needed by our lawyers and staff."

"Forward-thinking firms, such as Stikeman Elliott, recognize the growing complexity of information management and the need for automated technology to address this issue. Email archives and document management systems have failed to fix the growing email problem. A new category of email management software has emerged. Designed specifically to solve this problem, Decisiv's Email Management along with its Predictive Filing capabilities succeeds in solving the email management problem where others have failed," said Derek Schueren, general manager of information access and governance at Recommind. "By implementing both Decisiv Search and Decisiv Email Management, Stikeman takes its place among the leading law firms who are committed to using the most intelligent and innovative products in the marketplace to solve their information needs so they can best serve their clients."
