SAN FRANCISCO, CA and SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - Recommind, the leader in search-powered information management solutions for enterprises and law firms, announced today that Top-5 Australian law firm Freehills has selected Recommind's MindServer Search to deliver next-generation information access across the firm. Based on Recommind's CORE (Context Optimised Relevancy Engine) platform, the MindServer Search deployment will form the backbone of Freehill's knowledge infrastructure.

MindServer Search combines sophisticated, concept-based search technology with a simple user interface to provide highly accurate results that are tailored to the information requirements of the organisation and its individual users. Implementation of the solution across its network of 2000 lawyers and support staff, will provide Freehills with capabilities to instantly crawl, index and access information from its Autonomy Worksite document management libraries, Microsoft SharePoint(tm), Aderant Expert PMS and additional sources, as well as Matters & Expertise. Freehills will deploy MindServer Search as the primary search technology making firm information and work product exponentially more usable and actionable across the organisation.

"Our first priority will be to utilize the benefits of MindServer Search across our intranet and knowledge repositories, thereby maximizing the significant investment that we have made to date in these areas," commented Janet Young, COO / CFO at Freehills. "We believe the ability to find the right information just when you need it is essential for delivering a high quality and timely service to our clients."

"Freehills is a leading blue chip law firm in the Asia Pacific marketplace and a very welcome addition to the growing Recommind client base in the region," added Grant Watt, Director of Channels at Recommind. "We are very excited about working with the firm to further consolidate our leadership position within this important market."

To further supplement its information access and knowledge management efforts, Freehills will also implement Recommind's QwikFind search bar. Recommind's unique QwikFind search bar provides instant access to MindServer Search from within Microsoft Office applications (i.e. Word, Outlook, Excel) or from the Windows desktop toolbar, negating the need to launch a separate window or application in order to perform a firm-wide search.

MindServer Search is built on Recommind's patented CORE(tm) (Context Optimized Relevancy Engine) platform, a fully automated information management layer which automatically understands content in context. The CORE platform uses the most advanced and accurate concept-based search and categorisation technology available and seamlessly and securely integrates structured and unstructured data. By building targeted solutions on top of the CORE platform, customers of all sizes and industries are able to find and process the exact information they need to immediately take action, enjoying faster, more accurate and efficient eDiscovery, regulatory compliance, collaboration and knowledge management solutions.
