Ulmer & Berne Selects Recommind for Enterprise Search and Email

Midwest-Based Law Firm Adds Decisiv Email and Search to Provide Industry-Leading Information Management Capabilities

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 11, 2012) - Recommind, the leader in predictive information management and analysis software, today announced that Ulmer & Berne LLP, a full service law firm that represents a wide range of clients from Fortune 500 corporations to start-ups and entrepreneurs, has selected Recommind's full suite of Decisiv™ solutions to overhaul the firm's management of electronically stored documents. Based on Recommind's CORE® (Context Optimized Relevancy Engine) platform, the deployment will provide better control of Ulmer & Berne's information management structure.

Recommind's Decisiv Email and Search solutions will provide Ulmer & Berne's 185 attorneys across four offices a complete view of the firm's client information, as well as a valuable knowledge management system. The ability to easily find emails, search documents and organize subject matter experts will provide a more efficient and effective working environment. Combining these best-in-breed tools will provide the law firm with an industry edge for users and clients.

Ulmer & Berne was in need of an enterprise search system to integrate with its current document management system, in order to keep client and relevant matters accessible for all users across multiple platforms. Recommind's Decisiv Search combines sophisticated enterprise search technology with a simple user interface that provides highly accurate results tailored to specific requirements set by the law firm. Rules-based access enables secure delivery of results across the firm, giving optimal relevancy for information seekers as well as increasing control over sensitive information.

In addition, Decisiv Email will address the issue of enterprise emails and documents being stored in individual silos, inaccessible to those who need the information, by helping to automate the filing of emails across the firm. This solution will move from the current storage system to a single comprehensive database that will seamlessly incorporate emails and documents into the knowledge management system.

Additional elements of the Decisiv solutions suite include Matters & Expertise and QwikFind. Matters & Expertise includes information found in practice management systems, billing systems, CRM and contact management systems to easily locate colleagues with the most relevant experience and knowledge to answer a specific query, regardless of where they are based. Furthermore the QwikFind toolbar will provide ubiquitous access to Decisiv Search from the desktop toolbar or from within Microsoft Office applications, ensuring the new search functions are always at the lawyers' disposal.

"By adding Recommind's email and search solutions to Ulmer & Berne's system we are providing our attorneys and staff with industry leading technology," said Sam Shipley, CIO, Ulmer & Berne. "Any law firm would benefit from using Recommind's email and search technology to leverage previous work to improve efficiency. This provides an advantage and additional value to our clients. The ease of use to manage email and quickly find precise information will enhance the firm's ability to be client and industry focused."

"The capability to easily collaborate on cases, research experts and find relevant documents across the firm provides Ulmer & Berne users with the valuable information needed to deliver the best counsel to their customers," said Georges Sabongui, Vice President, Worldwide Sales at Recommind. "We are excited to be working with Ulmer & Berne on this strategic initiative for the firm."
