Autonomy iManage WorkSite Integration
Biscom Delivery Server (BDS) is the established leader in replacing law firm FTP sites with advanced ad-hoc secure file transfer. Biscom further establishes its commitment to the legal market by delivering seamless integration of its advanced secure file transfer technology with Autonomy iManage. BDS for iManage targets law firm litigation and practice groups that transfer large volumes of files from various sources, including documents stored in WorkSite directories. BDS for iManage improves the efficiency of the transfer process by eliminating the need to move WorkSite documents to a temporary storage area or folder before uploading to a BDS delivery - BDS can access WorkSite files directly. In addition, documents contained in incoming BDS deliveries can be imported directly into a WorkSite folder, inheriting matter centric metadata. BDS for iManage eliminates duplication of WorkSite files in temporary locations that otherwise would be required to support the file transfer process.
If your firm relies on FTP for transferring high volumes of large documents for complex litigation support you are familiar with its drawbacks: lack of security, the administrative hassle of creating user accounts and setting permissions, no audit trails or verification of receipt, and difficulty of use by non technical users. BDS dramatically streamlines practice and litigation support exchange of large files with external counsel and business partners while maintaining a complete transaction and audit trail. BDS intuitive user interface further reduces IT support by allowing attorneys and administrative staff to perform their own transfers.
For outgoing transfers, an Add From FileSite button provides access to the WorkSite environment to select documents for inclusion in a BDS secure delivery. You can continue to upload non-FileSite files as well.
For Incoming Files
When you receive a secure delivery, WorkSite users see a new button: Save to FileSite. This enables you to download of files directly to a selected FileSite location without an intermediary step of saving the file to your local disk, and then uploading back into FileSite. Also, the imported files will inherit the matter centric metadata of the FileSite location.First, select the files to save to FileSite.
Define the metadata to associate with the files uploaded to FileSite.
