An article in Legal IT, July 14, 2006 gives three instances of law departments that have embraced software that helps them with documents.
Cisco Systems uses to DealBuilder document assembly system (See my post of Feb. 6, 2007 about other users of that software.). With that software, an estimated 500 non-disclosure agreements are completed automatically per month by Cisco employees.
At National grid, a British energy infrastructure company, its law department uses a software combination of Microsoft SharePoint and WorkShare. That document management system ensures content compliance and security and helps the department tracked multiple versions of documents.
BP, one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, invested in document management software from Interwoven. Hence, three large departments, three different solutions, but all increased their department’s productivity.
