(Carlsbad, CA – January 4, 2006) Market leader EOS International announces that Goodwin Procter LLP has selected EOS.Web Enterprise as its multi-site, legal collection management solution of choice. Desiring increased accessibility, the Firm also has chosen to have their solution hosted at the EOS Global Data Center using the popular EOS e-Library Service. Headquartered in Boston, MA, Goodwin Procter will be replacing products from Dynix and InMagic.
Founded in 1912, with total staff of 1,250 after merging with Shea & Gardner LLP, Goodwin Procter is one of the nation's leading law firms, with a team of 650 attorneys serving clients through offices in Boston, New York, New Jersey and Washington, D.C. The merger left Goodwin Procter with systems that were incompatible with each other.
Requiring a system that would handle Firm growth, increase collection accessibility and support their knowledge management / knowledge sharing initiatives, Goodwin Procter established a set of criteria for their new solution, investigated options, and selected ASP-hosted EOS.Web Enterprise due to its global availability, scalability, strong serials management of electronic journals, and the product's ability to support custom taxonomies.
"I'm looking forward to establishing taxonomies for department-specific collections," states Ruth Carter Armstrong, Goodwin Procter Director of Information Resources. "With the KnowledgeBuilder and Indexer modules, we will be able to create & index these custom, departmental databases to support knowledge management and knowledge sharing projects for our major practice groups."
EOS.Web Enterprise KnowledgeBuilder provides for the ability to create custom record structures for in-house taxonomies without knowledge of database design while EOS.Web Enterprise Indexer indexes and automatically makes available these internal documents for full text searching of the content. When used together, they provide for the ability to create powerful, custom in-house knowledge management and knowledge sharing solutions.
