Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), the preeminent provider of enterprise content management (ECM) software, today announced that it has expanded its solutions in the global legal market including introducing key integrations between Open Text Document Management, eDOCS Edition (eDOCS DM) and Open Text Social Workplace available this fall.

The announcement was made at the ILTA 2010 conference taking place this week at Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Open Text is a platinum sponsor of the event and exhibiting in booths 713 & 715. Follow @OpenText on Twitter for ongoing coverage.

“Open Text Social Workplace was used most recently by members of the G-20 Summit to collaborate on major issues and ideas world-wide. Similarly, law firms are recognizing the benefit of collaborating with others on key projects and cases, and require the same type of secure environment that follows existing information governance rules and regulations,” said Todd Partridge, General Manager eDOCS and Legal Solutions for Open Text. “By integrating Open Text Social Workplace and eDOCS DM, law firms will have more options for collaborating on ideas, documents and matters with clients and employees that will be secured and stored within their eDOCS repository.”

Below is more information on Open Text’s upgrades and integrations to the eDOCS product line:

Open Text Social Workplace and Open Text eDOCS Integrations

First released in the summer of 2009, Open Text Social Workplace offers employees an elegant way to network and interact with each other and excels in how it supports a team's ability to form, organize and collaborate on projects as an easy-to-deploy shrink-wrapped solution. Built to be flexibly deployed either standalone or as part of another solution, Open Text Social Workplace will integrate with Open Text eDOCS allowing users from within law firms to collaborate on documents and matters stored and governed within eDOCS.

This includes new microblogging and instant messaging features and respects current permissions and governance rules. As a result, law firms will be able to maintain closer more productive attorney client relationships, and provide for more effective knowledge capture and sharing within the practice.

Open Text Document Management, eDOCS Edition 5.3

Open Text Document Management, eDOCS Edition helps eliminate the mounting inefficiencies caused by the inability to manage documents as well as the “islands of information” prevalent in many global organizations. It helps control document-based knowledge assets by enabling users to capture, organize, locate and share business content in a secure, integrated, and intuitive environment.

With the release of eDOCS DM 5.3, full Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010 support and updated integrations are available helping to increase user productivity and streamline matter management. Also added in this release is new platform support for 32 and 64 Bit versions of Windows Server 2008,SQL Server 2008, and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) support, while deployment costs are lowered through native Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) support.

Open Text Document Management, eDOCS Edition Integration with Open Text Records Management

eDOCS DM customers can now gain greater control of their content using the Open Text flagship records management offering with native integration, search and access from within the native eDOCS DM user interface. Extensive records management of physical items, electronic records and email, as well as structured data from systems such as Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and SAP are all available in this release.

WirelessDMS for eDOCS for Apple iPad

Support for Apple iPad is now available for WirelessDMS for eDOCS allowing users to access content from within eDOCS DM using the iPad device.

The Open Text eDOCS portfolio brings together the broad range of content management capabilities that legal firms need to securely and safely manage all types of enterprise information; documents, vital records, recorded depositions, Web content, video, images, and email. Open Text's eDOCS offers the cross-enterprise ECM solutions firms are looking for as the strategic importance of ECM grows. Currently, 90 percent of the AmLaw 100 firms are using Open Text’s content management solutions.
