Recommind Unveils MindServer Legal 4.0

Dec 16, 2005

Recommind, a provider of search and automated categorization systems for the legal industry, has announced the immediate availability of MindServer Legal 4.0, an enhanced version of the company's flagship legal enterprise search platform. Built on the MindServer platform, the inclusion of new smart-filters can help attorneys pinpoint the critical information they are looking for at the click of a button. With MindServer Legal 4.0, law firms can give attorneys tools to find the information they need within the firm.

MindServer Legal 4.0 provides context for the results that are returned. This includes such information as what client/matter is associated with a document, who last edited a document, or to which practice area the document is related. In addition, MindServer's faceted navigation feature, using smart-filters, enables users to narrow results based on multiple criteria such as practice group, office, author, client, matter, jurisdiction, and more. Users can filter down to a more focused set of results, designed to allow them to perform complex legal research.

MindServer 4.0's major enhancements include: Faceted Navigation, where smart-filters allow users to narrow search results based on metadata fields such as Author, Client/Matter, or Practice Area; Federated search, which enables users to search 3rd party on-line information services from a single search location within their own firm; and Integration into records management and archiving systems, where new connectors have been built for MDY's Filesurf and Symantec's Enterprise Vault.
