SAN FRANCISCO, Interwoven GearUp '05 ECM Solutions Conference, May 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Interwoven, Inc. , provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions for business, today announced that it continues to extend its leadership in the legal market as approximately 1,000 law firm and over 100 corporate legal department customers now rely on its industry-leading Collaborative Document Management (CDM) system to streamline business processes, increase productivity and improve client service. Interwoven's market success has been driven by its continued focus on delivering innovative new technology, the growing adoption of its unique matter-centric collaboration (MCC) approach, and an extensive solutions partner network. Currently, Interwoven has 57 of the AmLaw 100 and 106 of the AmLaw 200 as customers (the definitive rankings of the largest American law firms).

Worldwide, law firms and corporate legal departments continue to adopt Interwoven CDM, powered by Interwoven WorkSite 8 software, to address the increasing challenge of managing documents and e-mails in a single consistent manner. With its unique MCC approach, WorkSite 8 provides the industry's most complete offering for law firms and corporate legal departments to manage critical content, enhance client and business relationships, enable efficient collaboration over distance and improve attorney and staff utilization. Already, over 350 legal customers have adopted or upgraded to WorkSite 8. Recent law firm customers to adopt the Interwoven solution include McGuire Woods; DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary; Luce Forward Hamilton & Scripps; Gibbons, Del Deo, Dolan, Griffinger & Vecchione; and Davies Arnold Cooper, a leading commercial law firm with offices in the UK, Spain and Latin America. Corporate legal department customers who have recently adopted Interwoven include PalmSource; Dolby Laboratories; Great Clips; NiSource; and many others.

"We selected Interwoven not only because they are an established leader in the legal technology market, but because their matter-centric collaboration approach will enable us to address the full scope of our needs, making it simple for attorneys to access, share and collaborate around any type of content, from any location," said Rod Satterwhite, partner, McGuire Woods, an AmLaw 100 firm. "Interwoven will serve as the platform on which to expand our existing knowledge management systems and serve our clients even more effectively." Support of the implementation at McGuire Woods will be provided by Interwoven legal industry partner Baker Robbins. Added Satterwhite, "Interwoven's tightly-integrated partnership with Baker Robbins will be extremely valuable throughout the implementation process."

The corporate legal department of PalmSource also chose Interwoven over the competition. "We selected Interwoven Collaborative Document Management for our corporate legal department because it provides the best solution available on the market today to efficiently manage PalmSource's legal documentation, and because it was offered by our existing and trusted ECM vendor, Interwoven," said Ginna Raahauge, vice president of IT at PalmSource. "Moving forward, we expect to streamline all legal work, from the time it takes to complete compliance-related tasks, to working with outside counsel, to completing contracts for sales."

Innovative Technologies Transform Legal IT

A key driver of Interwoven's legal market momentum has been continuous technological innovation of the products that power its legal solutions. Matter-centric collaboration (MCC), the unique paradigm at the heart of WorkSite 8, has gained broad acceptance across the industry by enabling lawyers for the first time to manage matter-related content in the electronic world the way they have done for more than a century in the physical world. MCC creates the true electronic equivalent of a case file by consolidating documents, e-mails, billing, contacts and all other relevant content for any given matter in a single integrated file that is accessible both internally and externally across departments and locations.

With MCC serving as the organizational foundation of matter-related material, Interwoven has further enhanced its industry-leading legal offerings with the introduction of Interwoven OffSite, which enables the use of WorkSite 8 while disconnected from the network, delivering a 'portable' document management capability for the mobile worker. Interwoven OffSite dramatically improves mobile CDM productivity by enabling users to easily access the virtual equivalent of their briefcase or client file-including the organizational structure, documents, e-mails, scanned images and other content-even when disconnected from the network. New and modified documents and filed e-mails are automatically synchronized with the entire matter or client file upon synchronization with the network. With the addition of OffSite, WorkSite is now the most complete mobile-enabled collaborative document management offering on the market.

Interwoven also recently introduced the Interwoven RecordsManager product, enabling law firms and corporate legal departments to consistently and efficiently manage electronic, paper and e-mail records. In the past, organizations have relied on records management strategies designed solely for paper records, which are based on labor-intensive manual processes for classification and administration. With the explosive growth of electronic records and e-mail, the fundamental lack of scalability of this method is compounded by the lack of an integrated solution encompassing paper, electronic records and e-mail, forcing companies to maintain separate silos. Interwoven RecordsManager allows for centralized control over decentralized content, bringing all forms of records throughout an organization into a single, seamless environment.

Leading Legal Industry Partners Drive Growth

Interwoven's partners continue to play a key role in the company's market success. The Interwoven PartnerNetwork includes more than 200 companies worldwide. Many of these partners have the choice of implementing alternate competitive document management systems; however, in the first quarter of 2005 alone, Interwoven partners drove approximately 75 percent of Interwoven's competitive replacement deals, representing approximately 5,600 seats.

RBRO Solutions, an Interwoven partner in Canada recently signed Cassels Brock, a leading Canadian law firm based in Toronto. Cassels Brock will use Interwoven for matter-centric document management, collaboration and e-mail management firm-wide. Examples of other recent legal customer wins driven through Interwoven partners include: Speechly Bircham (Tikit); Luce Forward (Featherstone Consulting); and Miller & Chevalier (Younts Consulting).

"Interwoven's momentum in the legal market reflects our strong commitment to helping both law firms and corporate legal departments succeed with critical initiatives like e-mail management, matter-centric collaboration, and business continuity," said Chris Junker, general manager and vice president, legal and compliance products and solutions at Interwoven. "Our focus on technological innovation, strong partner network and our unique industry-leading matter-centric vision all play a vital role in addressing the requirements of this industry, and we remain dedicated to meeting the evolving needs of our legal customers."
