CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, February 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Autonomy Corporation plc , a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced that Hammonds LLP, a leading commercial law firm with offices throughout Europe and Asia, has selected Autonomy iManage as the single vendor for all of its document, knowledge and business process management requirements. After a competitive procurement, Hammonds LLP selected iManage Universal Search, an award winning pan-enterprise search solution tailored to the unique requirements of law firms, iManage WorkSite, the legal industry's number one document management solution, and iManage Workflow Manager, a full featured intelligent process automation engine that delivers significant improvements in productivity and compliance. Autonomy iManage's unique conceptual capabilities and its unique ability to provide firms with the complete set of EDRM tools from one common platform were among the key factors in Hammond's final decision.

In today's volatile economy, a piecemeal approach to intelligent content processing is no longer attractive or feasible, said Russell Firth, CIO at Hammonds LLP. As a leading commercial firm, we are constantly striving to boost collaboration and enhance productivity in order to improve client service and derive the highest value from each billable hour. Autonomy iManage was the natural choice for us. Its end-to-end, meaning-based platform and unprecedented scalability make this a truly strategic investment that we will be able to develop in the future by adding functionalities and modules as and when the need arises.

At the heart of Autonomy iManage's transformational approach to information management is Autonomy's unique infrastructure software platform, the Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL). Thanks to its revolutionary meaning-based technology, IDOL forms an understanding of all data in the enterprise including human-friendly formats such as web pages, emails, voice and video.

With the average lawyer receiving over 400 emails a day, the power that IDOL brings to email management is crucial for law firms to improve user experience and boost productivity. Autonomy iManage actively encourages the filing of emails in a matter-centric legal environment by automatically suggesting filing locations for every email, while storing them all on a single platform.

The powerful combination of iManage Universal Search, WorkSite and Workflow Manager will enable Hammonds' users to benefit from:

- End-to-end platform for all of their knowledge, content and business process management requirements - Seamless integration across all user touch points, geographical boundaries, repositories and languages - A pan-enterprise search solution tailored to law firms and leveraging IDOL's breadth of connectivity to repositories and applications - Advanced conceptual search and intelligent classification capabilities enabling Hammonds LLP to maximize the utility of its content and improve search performance and relevancy - Automated intelligent processing that can deliver significant improvements in productivity and compliance - Rich capabilities for modeling and stimulating business processes, rules based routing, electronic forms and real-time business activity monitoring

Technology is a fundamental lever to improving fee-earner productivity and doing more with less, said Neil Araujo, CEO of Autonomy iManage. Autonomy's unique meaning-based technology is transformational in delivering those efficiencies all on a single platform, enabling firms to improve client service, profitability and compliance. We are delighted that Hammonds LLP has selected Autonomy iManage as the single provider for all of its intelligent content processing requirements.
