International law firm sees a paperless future
To find and manage content more efficiently, the law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld has selected a legal industry software suite from Interwoven.
The software will help the law firm--with 2,400 employees and 12 offices worldwide--prepare better for litigation while improving client service, according to a press release from Interwoven. The information management system will help fee-earners get their work done more quickly and easily, collaborate globally with colleagues and clients, improve work practices and reduce costs, Interwoven says.
Lorey Arthur Hoffman, CIO of Akin Gump, says, "We view our strategic vendors as partners and look for a demonstrated track record of collaboration with customers to innovate and improve products that meet real needs and work habits."
Hoffman is leading an effort to make Akin Gump completely electronic—from voicemail to working documents to records. By managing the whole life cycle of documents in a paperless format, the law firm hopes to gain financial efficiencies and to improve productivity and client responsiveness, according to the press release.
Akin Gump will use Interwoven WorkSite, Universal Search and Records Manager.
