At Noerr Group, we are very proud to employ the best-in-class lawyers, each of whom contributes their expertise to a rich pool of corporate knowledge, said Jurgen Goldammer, CIO of Noerr Group. We selected Autonomy iManage WorkSite after a competitive procurement to empower our lawyers to tap into this common pool by encouraging knowledge sharing, thus helping significantly enhance client service.

Information is the lifeblood of a law firm, said Neil Araujo, CEO of Autonomy iManage. Information overload, the increasing importance of human-friendly content such as email and depositions, and a globally distributed workforce are just a few of the challenges underscoring the need for a centralized, robust and secure legal information management solution which can derive meaning from data assets across distinct formats, languages and jurisdictions. Thanks to its unique meaning-based technology and over a decade of deep legal industry expertise, Autonomy iManage is the only vendor capable of meeting and exceeding these demanding requirements.

At the heart of Autonomy iManage's revolutionary content management approach lies Autonomy's core infrastructure software, the Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL). Thanks to its revolutionary meaning-based technology, IDOL forms an understanding of all of the law firm's documents and emails. 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. In today's volatile economy, forward-looking law firms like Noerr Group strive to achieve large-scale efficiencies for their clients by significantly boosting collaboration to maximize each billable hour.
