Recommind today announced that top 10 New Zealand law firm Duncan Cotterill has implemented MindServer Search to provide a single search platform across its five offices in New Zealand and Australia. MindServer Search combines concept-based search technology with a simple user interface to provide highly accurate results that are tailored to the information requirements of the firm and its users. Duncan Cotterill’s deployment of MindServer Search provides its lawyers and support staff with quick and seamless access to all their office-based file stores.

“The implementation of MindServer Search has been key to improving firm-wide information access and increasing productivity of our busy lawyers and support staff. Choosing MindServer Search has enabled us to maintain our ‘home-grown’ document management solution without the need to make significant investments in a mainstream document management system, at a time when the future of such packages seems very uncertain,” said Richard Swatton, knowledge manager at Duncan Cotterill.  “Furthermore, by investing in MindServer Search, the firm has implemented a search platform that offers far more than just document retrieval. This gives us a very sound foundation for both our current and future search requirements.”

Upcoming phases of implementation include adding the firm’s intranet and other internal document repositories to the search environment and deploying MindServer’s unique Matters & Expertise module to track relevant staff experience and prior projects.

“We are very pleased to welcome Duncan Cotterill to Recommind’s fast-growing international client community as it deploys MindServer Search across the practice,” said Grant Watt, channel director for Recommind.  “We are excited to expand MindServer Search into New Zealand, and we look forward to commencing more projects in the region in the near future.”
