Enhancements in AccuRoute Deliver Document Routing Capabilities from Within Matter-Centric Environments
NEW YORK–LAWFUEL – Law Technology News –Omtool,™ Ltd. (NASDAQ: OMTL), a leading provider of document handling products and services, today released an optional package for its AccuRoute® product line that gives legal customers the tightest integration possible with document management systems. Available first for Interwoven WorkSite®, users now have direct and immediate access to AccuRoute’s document routing capabilities from within their matter-centric environments.
As an Interwoven Development Partner, Omtool delivers specific functionality in AccuRoute to make it easy to scan fully profiled hardcopy documents directly into the Worksite repository. A clear advantage of AccuRoute’s tight integration with WorkSite is the presentation of Interwoven’s native user interfaces so that the user has the same experience for importing a paper document as it would an electronic document, making users more proficient and productive within minutes.
For over 10 years Interwoven and Omtool have delivered tightly integrated solutions to the market and share a large number of customers, especially in the legal sector, including Bromberg & Sunstein which leverages AccuRoute for comprehensive document capture, conversion, and simultaneous delivery to Interwoven WorkSite and various other destinations.
“Bromberg & Sunstein licensed AccuRoute Law Office in mid-2006 to use with our networked MFPs as our document scanning and capture solution for paper that we needed to get into Interwoven Worksite,” said Monroe Horn, CTO, Bromberg & Sunstein, LLP. “Our goal was to handle our paper documents as we do our electronic files and allow them to be stored, accessed and routed electronically. Now all paper coming in or going out of the firm is scanned and stored in WorkSite. Content that had been locked up in paper documents is now text-searchable, profiled by matter and easily accessible at all times.”
Announced today and demonstrated at LegalTech in New York City (booth # 329/331), AccuRoute Option Pack for Legal includes Interwoven DMS extensions allowing users to easily define document routing and handling rules from within the matter-centric environment and profile and route documents simultaneously from their desktop. This option pack also provides the ability to create multiple routing sheets in advance so they are always accessible for users and then assigned at the time of document distribution. Many users have relied on AccuRoute’s routing sheets that include the machine-readable routing rules (“embedded directives”) due to their familiarity with fax cover sheets. Now, with the Option Pack for Legal, routing rules may be used on any printable media to best fit the document workflow and work habits of a company.
“Together, Omtool and Interwoven create seamless matter-centric document management environments that uniquely handle both paper and electronic documents,” said Neil Araujo, vice president Professional Services Industry Solutions Marketing, Interwoven, Inc. “With the tight coupling of our products, companies and law firms of all sizes have leveraged our solution to increase employee productivity and reduce costs associated with the handling of information. These advances in the AccuRoute product line further enhance the user experience and improve employee effectiveness when it comes to handling and routing documents – both paper and electronic.”
