One-stop search solution for law firm

A law firm with more than 125 lawyers at offices in Jersey and Guernsey in the Channel Islands, as well as in London, can now search across databases, file systems and Web sites via its intranet. Carey Olsen has deployed ISYS:web 8 from ISYS Search Software for its search features and its ability to connect with Interwoven WorkSite.

The new system is said to enhance Carey Olsen's ability to serve its clients, which include governments, financial institutions, corporations, professional firms, private individuals and more, by providing a common interface to search all bodies of information stored by the firm.

"We see the introduction of ISYS:web as a major step toward having a one-stop solution for accessing knowledge," says Stuart Bush, IT director of Carey Olsen. "We've used ISYS for years and think highly of the pedigree of its search technology. Its ability to connect with Interwoven makes it an even more powerful tool and is what led us to upgrade to Version 8."

According to a recent press release from ISYS, Carey Olsen uses ISYS' on-the-fly categorization feature—which automatically builds relevant categories with each results set—and connects it with Interwoven metadata. That generates meaningful categories with each search that users recognize from their work with [Interwoven] FileSite.
