Autonomy, a provider of infrastructure software, has unveiled additional new intelligent connectors for its iManage Universal Search, the company’s pan-enterprise search system tailored for law firms.
According to the company, these new intelligent connectors provide better connectivity to three legal applications as well as more than 10 legal-specific research sites, such as the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
Autonomy said that the connectivity enables firms to apply the IDOL technology in iManage Universal Search (IUS) to index and process information on legal-specific research sites, enabling users to not only search these sites but also perform advanced functions, such as automatically alerting a user as relevant information on these sites changes.
The new intelligent connectors allow customers to connect to the following legal applications: LexisNexis InterAction CRM system; Practical Law Company’s Legal Knowhow Services; and Carpe Diem time and expense tracking system.
Anthony Bettencourt, CEO of Autonomy Interwoven, said: By extending access from within the IUS solution to these extremely helpful legal resources, litigation support professionals and lawyers can now automatically find relevant case law, hyperlink to all other relevant cases across all research sources and package it up with other WorkSite materials for presentation to a general counsel. Autonomy iManage’s unique ability to understand the concepts in the content, regardless of language and data formats, including audio and video, makes this very powerful.
