Travers Smith Selects BA Insight for Enterprise Search 
BA Insight's TotalView Will Enable Firm to Search Quickly and Easily
Across Multiple Content Repositories 
LONDON and NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/11/13 --   BA Insight
(, the leader in agile information integration and
enterprise search, announced today that UK-based law firm Travers
Smith has selected BA Insight for enterprise search. The firm will
layer BA Insight's TotalView for Legal on top of Microsoft
SharePoint, FAST, and multiple knowledge management systems including
its Hummingbird Document Management System to enable its lawyers to
quickly and easily to find and retrieve content from their entire
corpus of information: including their practice management system,
document management system, intranet, and both internal and external
knowledge bases.  
"In recent years, the size of our document libraries had exploded,
particularly with the storage of e-mails, and our old knowledge
management system was no longer sophisticated enough to cope with the
multiple silos of documents and information we had developed," said
Rachel Woodburn, Head of Professional Support at Travers Smith. "It
is imperative that we arm our lawyers with the right tools to enable
them to continue to deliver first-class service to our clients.
TotalView for Legal will mean that we can spend less time searching
for documents and information, and more time focusing on the needs of
our clients." 
"We're delighted to enable Travers Smith users to discover
information from matter-related e-mails and documents -- and to give
them a concise way of managing their knowledge resources," said Samia
Rauf, Vice President, EMEA for BA Insight. "Lawyers spend so much
time on research, and TotalView for Legal cuts down that time
significantly, freeing up hours for productive, billable client work.
We're so pleased to be working with Travers Smith, which has such a
strong reputation for quality and excellence." 
Travers Smith, a 150-year-old firm based in London, employs 275
lawyers. The Travers Smith team recently decided to make SharePoint
and FAST its central platform for content sharing. In light of that,
the firm performed an extensive review of enterprise search vendors,
and even explored the possibility of developing its own search-based
application, before narrowing the field down to BA Insight,
Recommind, and Autonomy, and ultimately deciding on BA Insight. "In
the end, we felt that BA Insight had far and away the best Microsoft
SharePoint and FAST integration," said Ann Cant, IT Director at
Travers Smith. "TotalView for Legal is also the most flexible and
agile solution on the market, which means we can do a lot with it as
our needs progress."
