OpenText has launched a content-management product specifically for the legal sector. It said the Open Text Legal Information Management, SharePoint Edition enables law firms to manage clients through matter and practice-centric views of content using Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007.
It said it can also be used with Open Text’s Enterprise Library Services to enable compliance adherence through long-term archiving and records management.
OpenText’s collaboration with Microsoft dates back to 2005 when both companies announced an initiative to combine Microsoft’s productivity tools with OpenText’s enterprise content management software. In 2007, OpenText unveiled other vertical industry-specific products integrated with Microsoft’s SharePoint Server, including one aimed at managing the US Department of Defense-certified records, and another to manage compliance with US Food and Drug Administration requirements.
