Legal Technology News recognizes LCA’s SharePoint 2010 project for most innovative use of technology in a legal department

Vancouver, BC, February 17, 2011 – Colligo Networks Inc., the leader in email and document management solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, congratulates Microsoft’s Legal and Corporate Affairs (LCA) Group on receiving the 2010 Legal Technology News (LTN) Award for most innovative use of technology in a legal department. The LTN innovation awards recognize the efforts of individuals, firms, and law departments that are pushing beyond the edges of current legal technology. The award was accepted by Nishan DeSilva, Microsoft’s Director of Information Management and Corporate Records Compliance during the 2011 LegalTech Conference recently held in New York, NY.

The LCA Group received the award based on their internal project to utilize SharePoint 2010 as the cornerstone for a new document and records management system to support 12 practice groups and 1,000 users. The new system developed on SharePoint 2010 enables LCA to reduce the number of different information sites and streamline the processes and permissions to use them. The new system also helps users to easily move emails from Outlook to SharePoint and to access SharePoint-based information from inside of Outlook.

More information on the award can be seen at Law Technology News site.

“Colligo wishes to congratulate Nishan DeSilva and everyone involved in the LCA Group’s SharePoint project on receiving this prestigious award,” said Barry Jinks, Founder and CEO of Colligo Networks. “Colligo’s development and support team worked very closely with the LCA Group to provide the seamless integration between Outlook and SharePoint required for this award-winning project. We expect LCA’s SharePoint implementation will be used as a model by legal departments worldwide that want to utilize the advanced capabilities of SharePoint 2010 to create a state-of-the-art document and records management system.”

Colligo recently interviewed Sheryl Nolan, Senior Solution Manager for Microsoft Legal and Corporate Affairs Group at the 2011 LegalTech Conference in New York on how the LCA Group uses Colligo Contributor and the benefits they have gained. View the video interview here.
