Hoskin Farina & Kampf enhances document and email management with cost-effective Worldox

The Solution: Worldox

In the summer of 2009, our Colorado-based law firm began looking for a new document management system (DMS). We use an accounting, time and billing system from Oregon-based Legal Software Systems (LSS), and at the time we used a DMS product from LSS – LSSDocs. We desired a more robust DMS product that integrates deeply with Microsoft Outlook. Further, we sought DMS software with greater flexibility regarding document rights management and security.

When we began our search, we looked at these DMS offerings: Document Locator from Oregon’s ColumbiaSoft, iManage Interwoven (now owned by the U.K.’s Autonomy), and Worldox from World Software. We eliminated Document Locator early in the process because it does not appear to be designed for and widely marketed to the legal industry.

The decision came down to Interwoven and Worldox. The firm I worked with prior to Hoskin Farina had been an iManage (Interwoven) shop; I was quite fond of the iManage DMS. Ultimately however, we eliminated Interwoven because it is an expensive solution for our firm of approximately 35 users. Worldox offers very similar features at a more affordable price and does not require a dedicated file server. We chose Worldox.

Throughout our preparation to install Worldox, I developed tremendous confidence in DCNC, the Denver-based Worldox systems integrator that had originally demonstrated Worldox for us. I spoke with several DCNC customers (all law firms) who had recently migrated to Worldox; they were very happy with DCNC’s service and support, as well as with Worldox. Those conversations also provided helpful suggestions to complement our migration experience. My initial discussions with the team at DCNC added to my comfort level. Their consultants are knowledgeable about the product, and they know how law firms use a DMS. In particular, DCNC’s assistance in creating our document profile structure and naming conventions proved invaluable, as did their training sessions for our users.

DCNC also helped us to save time and money, and worked to limit interruptions throughout the migration process. Because DCNC is located about 4.5 hours from our Grand Junction office, the distance could have complicated things. They made sure that was not a factor. They scheduled the first meeting in our office; afterward we met via teleconference or webinar. That kept travel expenses and interruptions to our business to a minimum. Our teleconferences and webinars (as opposed to in-person meetings) had no negative impact on our ability to communicate clearly.

Prior to our actual cutover, we were trained to use Worldox. DCNC provided training for users by setting up a training lab in our offices. The entire process was hands-on; each user was taught to profile, name and search for files using a database of test documents. We did our best to pair attorneys with their secretaries and respective practice groups, so that questions posed by users and the answers provided would be better understood. The Worldox interface is friendly and familiar, which facilitates learning. We assimilated to Worldox quickly, and post-migration questions were readily addressed by DCNC and Worldox.

Our mid-April 2010 Worldox installation went quite well. As with any migration, there were a few challenges. DCNC resolved them quickly. One issue involved the sluggish speed at which documents were transferring into Worldox. That took more time than anticipated, due in large part to file transfer limitations inherent in our operating system. We migrated more than 100,000 documents from LSSDocs to Worldox; DCNC took care to make sure they were transferred properly. Despite the few usual challenges associated with a DMS conversion, our migration from LSSDocs to Worldox was the smoothest such conversion I have experienced. Much credit goes to the team from DCNC. They prepared us for the process in advance, properly trained our users, and walked us through each step as the migration unfolded.

Since the installation and document migration, everyone at our firm is extremely comfortable with Worldox. Document collaboration is much more fluid and information is more easily shared, yet document security and version control have not been compromised. Worldox’s Outlook folder integration is very useful; we can store and locate email messages, Word documents, Excel worksheets, and PDFs in one location – no need to move between different programs and folders. Every document and email message is fully text- searchable. Worldox is easy to use. It makes sense, and affords us greater efficiency, which directly benefits our clients.

Challenge:

To find a DMS that integrates deeply with Outlook and offers greater flexible in document security and rights-management.

Solution:

Worldox selected; all documents migrated from LSSDocs.

Result:

Document collaboration is greatly enhanced – without compromising security.Our users are very comfortable with Worldox.

Howard Kennedy: Worldox/Web Mobile helps London firm’s lawyers access key documents online – anytime, anywhere

The Solution: Worldox

Howard Kennedy has historically been a law firm on the leading edge of technology. We believe we were the first law firm in the world to run digital dictation in a VMWare Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment. Also, our IT Team was a finalist in the Legal Technology News LTN Awards 2009 for City/National IT Team of the year based upon work undertaken during 2008 on a full infrastructure refresh incorporating both production systems and standby systems utilising VMWare virtualisation technologies and NetApp storage.

We are similarly dedicated to providing flexible remote working solutions to our fee earners. Since 2000, our firm has used the Worldox Document Management System (DMS) from World Software Corporation, and it has performed very well for us throughout the past decade. With nearly 250 Worldox licenses, we are one of their largest sites in Europe. There has been a growing trend for lawyers wanting to work from home or remotely when travelling on business, including the need to access their documents.

Worldox/Web Mobile, which is the DMS’s online interface that operates over any internet connection, helps us meet this demand. We updated Worldox/Web Mobile to the latest available version as part of our infrastructure virtualisation project in 2008. The interface is extremely similar to that of the Worldox desktop product, so the training aspect is very light. Approximately 60% of our fee earning user base currently benefits from the availability of Worldox/Web Mobile system at this time.

Though based in London, Howard Kennedy has clients all over the world. When our lawyers work from home or travel abroad for client visits and meetings, they can easily access documents via Worldox/Web Mobile, regardless of time differences.

Any computer with a web connection can bring up Worldox/Web Mobile. Clearly, this is extremely convenient and helps maintain productivity. Access to documents can sometimes make the difference between a successful meeting and happy client or the opposite, so 24/7 availability of documents is critically important.

From an IT perspective, Worldox/Web Mobile was straightforward to install, and is very easy for us to maintain. With Worldox as part of our environment, we are able to securely deliver documents to people around the clock. Because of the way Worldox/Web Mobile is designed with challenge/response authentication and HTTPS protocols there is a high level of security protecting our documents.

We rarely have any Worldox issues for the DMS or the web product. Having products on the system that “just work” like Worldox and Worldox/Web Mobile is very valuable, because they don’t require much manpower for troubleshooting purposes.

Worldox/Web Mobile is a good solution for Howard Kennedy for a number of reasons. First, its operating cost is very low, which is appreciated by everyone at the firm. Second, it is extremely reliable and rarely goes offline. It is a constant resource that we can count on. Third, there is very low training overhead because the interface is so similar to that of Worldox. We really do not have to train users in any great detail.

Overall, Worldox/Web Mobile is a useful tool which enables access to documents using any major internet browser. We are exceedingly pleased with the solution, as well as the technical support we have received from World Software Corporation’s staff. I recommend Worldox and Worldox/Web Mobile to any firm looking to give its users a great DMS and access to their documents from anywhere in the world.

Challenge:

To connect travelling lawyers with documents on demand – without compromising security or spending a fortune on new technology and training.

Solution:

Deployed the latest version of Worldox/Web Mobile to staff on the go.

Result:

Off-site work and client visits are much more productive. Approximately 60% of our fee-earning base now benefits from the availability of Worldox/Web Mobile.

Cavalluzzo Hayes Shilton McIntyre & Cornish Implements Worldox® Document Management Software

Toronto Law Firm Finds Right DMS to Suit Unique IT Environment with Novell Servers, GroupWise E-mail and Corel WordPerfect

Ridgewood, NJ – June 29, 2010 – World Software Corporation® (www.worldox.com) today announced Toronto-based law firm Cavalluzzo Hayes Shilton McIntyre & Cornish LLP (www.cavalluzzo.com) has purchased and installed the Worldox® Document Management System (DMS). Cavalluzzo’s environment was particularly unique, featuring a combination of Novell servers, GroupWise e-mail and Corel WordPerfect documents. A perfect fit for these parameters, Worldox allows for firm-wide sharing, searching and management of documents, e-mails and scanned images.

Cavalluzzo began looking for a DMS in 2003 in order to better manage e-mails and increase productivity and spend less time searching for documents. They looked at DMS offerings from Open Text (formerly Hummingbird) and Worldox.

According to Michael Morris, Cavalluzzo’s information technology manager, “Our firm decided against Open Text because it is a SQL-based system, and if the SQL server were to go down, the firm would lose access to all its documents. Worldox, on the other hand, has a dual database architecture and a distributed mirroring function, which mitigates this outage risk. Additionally, we believed in the longevity and stability of Worldox, whereas Open Text’s product had undergone several acquisitions in recent years. For these reasons, Cavalluzzo decided to implement Worldox.”

Legal Software Connection, Inc., a top Worldox Systems Integration company headed by Frank Jones, was retained to manage the installation and training in early 2010. Morris noted, “Frank Jones is a Worldox expert and he did a fantastic job with our planning and rollout. The entire installation was completed over a single weekend, so our lawyers and staff had virtually zero down time.”

The firm’s users have adjusted to Worldox quite well. Morris said, “Worldox solves a complex document management need with ease and simplicity – there’s no need for extra servers to run the software; we only need a PC-Class device for indexing. Best yet, the support we have received from Worldox has been unparalleled. Worldox even created a custom feature for us to allow lookup table text to be searched, the results tagged and passed to the Worldox Find dialog as Boolean queries. This is especially useful in matter table lookups, as it allows people to easily locate matters they may want to search based on the text entered in the billing systems matter description. As such, Worldox makes searching across multiple matters very easy. Every expectation I have had of Worldox and World Software Corporation has been exceeded.”

Worldox President Ray Zwiefelhofer remarked, “We are thrilled to have Cavalluzzo as a customer, and would like to congratulate Frank Jones and Sandra Johnson of Legal Software Connection for doing an excellent job with their implementation. World Software is proud to be the DMS of choice for 3500+ law firms of all sizes, and continues its commitment to excellence in product performance and customer service for firms operating in any environment.”

Ridgewood, NJ – June 22, 2010 – World Software Corporation® (www.worldox.com) today announced Grand Junction, Colo.-based law firm Hoskin Farina & Kampf, P.C.,(www.hfak.com) has purchased and installed the Worldox® Document Management System(DMS), allowing for firm-wide sharing, searching and management of documents, e-mails and scanned images.

Hoskin Farina began looking for a new DMS in early fall 2009. At the time, the firm was running LSSDocs’ DMS. According to Firm Administrator Tony Lozano, Worldox provides improvements in the areas of Outlook integration and folder structure, document rights and security control, and overall interface.

Hoskin Farina researched three DMS offerings: Interwoven (now Autonomy), Document Locator and Worldox. The firm eventually decided on Worldox because it is the most feature-rich product available for the best price. Also, Lozano has great confidence in DCNC (www.dcncinc.com), the Denver-based Worldox systems integrator run by Wayne Rysdahl that presented the software to Hoskin Farina and ultimately handled the installation.

Lozano notes, “Worldox is a great DMS for our firm. The document security, seamless integration with Outlook, and familiar interface makes the software indispensible to us. Worldox is easy to use; it makes sense, and affords us greater efficiency, which benefits our clients. Our conversion to Worldox was the smoothest document management migration I have experienced, and the training that DCNC provided was excellent.”

Rysdahl says, “We are very pleased to have done this Worldox conversion and implementation for Hoskin Farina. Our partnership with Worldox allows us to provide our customers with a world-class DMS, and the technology is serving the firm’s needs extremely well.”

According to Worldox President Ray Zwiefelhofer, “We are thrilled to have Hoskin Farina as a customer and applaud DCNC on a job well done.

Lombardo & Gilles implements Worldox® to manage documents and email, and streamline workflow

Background

Law firms have an unparalleled amount of information to manage and track, and as any law professional knows, efficiently handling the volume of documents is one of the most challenging tasks involved in managing a law firm. With more than 15 years of documents accumulated on our server, that task was becoming even more cumbersome for my law firm, Lombardo & Gilles, based in Salinas, Calif.

We started looking for a new document management system (DMS) to create a more paperless office, and also to modernize our firm’s email management system, which was costly, paper-intensive and time – consuming. The attorneys and staff had exhausted the capabilities of Microsoft Outlook to search for and organize emails, and we determined that Microsoft search and coding alone could no longer provide an adequate resource for our requirements.

The Solution: Worldox

We looked at a few different solutions, including Hummingbird (now Open Text), prior to choosing Worldox. In addition to the DMS coming highly recommended by our IT services provider – Baker + Cadence Solutions, a leading Worldox systems integrator – one of our lawyers had used a system at his previous law firm which he said was quite similar to Worldox. Our research proved that Worldox was the most efficient and competitive product available.

The Worldox installation was extremely smooth, the whole process only taking a few days. Baker + Cadence CEO Bill Baker spearheaded work-study programs with our staff and attorneys to make sure they understood the way the system worked. Using real-time examples, Bill gave my staff the opportunity to ask questions as he demonstrated and showed them how to use the product. He then came back and did one-on-one training with each staff member.

Tangible Benefits

There are many benefits to using Worldox. My favorite feature of Worldox is the real-time tracking of, and ability to centrally store, email. Now, all the attorneys working on my cases have access to the emails I have saved to Worldox, and everything is accessible from a central location.

I was not the only person to see the benefits of Worldox. Our firm’s office manager, Tina Hamby quickly saw that Worldox was going to completely change the way we conducted business.

According to Tina, “One of the attorneys spent hours trying to find three documents he had created, and when he couldn’t, he had to recreate them. Using Worldox, we were able to find those documents in two seconds. That’s when I was sold on Worldox.”

With the help of Worldox, our office is gradually going paperless. Before Worldox, our secretaries were spending lots of time copying and emailing documents. Now with Worldox, not only do we save man hours, but we save paper and toner, which is not only a cost benefit, but a green benefit as well.

Worldox has exceeded my expectations, especially from a support standpoint. With many companies it takes forever to get a support technician on the phone. Worldox isn’t that way; they are quick to respond. Worldox is a solution-driven company and there is always someone to help us with any problem we have. The few problems we have had have been dealt with in an efficient and prompt manner.

Worldox provides my firm with a wealth of benefits. Not only does it help us stay organized, efficient and relieve the stress of trying to find documents, but it also helps us stay green. Spending time and money scanning, sending and searching for documents is a practice of the past for our firm now. Worldox is the document management system of today, and our firm is greatly modernized because we have implemented this technology.

Challenge:

To cope with the growing burden of document and email management, and move towards the goal of paperless operation.

Solution:

Worldox installed; staff oriented and trained.

Result:

We are saving time and money, on the road to going paperless, realizing not only cost benefits, but green benefits.

Lombardo & Gilles Partner Jeff Gilles started looking for a new system to create a more paperless office and also to modernize the firm’s e-mail management system, which was costly, paper intensive and time consuming. The attorneys and staff had exhausted the capabilities of Microsoft Outlook to search for and organize e-mails. And with more than 15 years of documents stored on the firm’s server, Gilles and his team determined that Microsoft search and coding alone could no longer provide an adequate resource for their requirements.

Lombardo & Gilles purchased Worldox GX2 in December 2009 from Baker+Cadence Solutions (www.bakercadence.com) in California, a leading Worldox systems integrator. According to Gilles, “With Baker+Cadence, the whole installation process only took a few days and was extremely smooth.

World Software President Ray Zwiefelhofer said, “We are proud to count Lombardo & Gilles among our clients and congratulate Baker+Cadence on a job well done.

Burke will accept the award on February 1, 2010 at a reception for the LTN Award winners during LegalTech New York.

“I am honored to accept this award on behalf of all of the employees, resellers and customers of World Software,” said Burke. “For the past 21 years, we have developed innovative, useful technology at an affordable price, and have had fun doing it. I am extremely grateful to Monica Bay and Law Technology News for this acknowledgement, and will continue to pursue my strategic vision and dedication to excellence for the company.”
