TORONTO, ON and LegalTech, NEW YORK, Feb. 2 – Hummingbird Ltd. today announced that Howrey Simon Arnold & White, one of the world’s leading international law firms, has successfully deployed the industry’s first truly centralized document management solution using the Hummingbird Enterprise document management platform.
Ranked as one of the largest and most influential law firms in the world, Howrey has offices located across the United States and Europe. As part of the data center consolidation effort, Howrey relocated all its content residing in multiple libraries dispersed across the United States into one central repository housed at an AT&T offsite hosting center in Virginia. Attorneys and staff have fast and seamless access to approximately two million documents stored in a centralized repository, including correspondence, e-mails, memoranda, pleadings, research notes and contracts.
«Hummingbird Enterprise significantly improved the firm’s knowledge management capabilities resulting in better litigation support and increased attorney productivity,» said Robert Koenen, chief operating officer, Howrey Simon Arnold & White. «Rapid and reliable firm-wide information access from a single data center, without the need for any local servers in our offices, resulted in significantly lower operational costs.»
Howrey successfully consolidated its distributed libraries using Hummingbird ETL. Hummingbird’s data integration tool was used to consolidate data from multiple libraries across the country into a single, centralized repository. The new solution has reduced hardware expenditures and IT support and maintenance costs for the firm, directly affecting the bottom line.
With Hummingbird Enterprise, employees are able to share, search for and administer documents and information from within familiar interfaces, including Microsoft Outlook, Windows Desktop, Windows Explorer and mainstream authoring tools, such as Microsoft Office. In addition, users can profile and manage e-mails from within Microsoft Outlook, and are able to drag-and-drop messages and attachments straight into the Hummingbird DM repository.
«Hummingbird Enterprise is very well suited for centralized deployments, offering firms substantial benefits, such as reduced IT costs, simplified infrastructure and improved security and management of libraries,» said Andrew Pery, chief marketing officer and senior vice president, Hummingbird Ltd. «We are very pleased to provide a foundation for Howrey to build a cost-effective, easy-to-use, centralized document management solution and look forward to repeating this successful solution at other law firms.»
Hummingbird will be demonstrating the Hummingbird Enterprise solution for the legal market at the LegalTech conference at Booth No. 2003, February 2-4, 2004.
