EIM Development Team Provides Link between Essential Applications

Steptoe & Johnson PLLC is an energy law firm whose core strengths include labor & employment, litigation, and transactional law. With fourteen offices located in the U.S. and more than 300 attorneys, they are the 12th largest energy law practice in the country, according to Energy Law 360.

The Solution

Steptoe & Johnson utilizes both Quorum and OpenText eDOCS technologies in support of their daily business.  Quorum is a storage management repository used by Steptoe & Johnson for Title Opinions.  The Title Opinions are documents  that currently live in OpenText’s eDOCS DM, and the business requirement was to link individual documents from eDOCS DM to the records in the Quorum database. Steptoe& Johnson was looking for the ability to be able to right click in a document in eDOCS DM and have a direct link to Quorum in order to connect the data from one system to another. The Firm turned to EIM International to custom develop this add in. The solution developed provided a new Profile right-click option within DM that would populate the user’s Windows Clipboard with the generated URL text and provide the user with an instructional popup guiding them towards where to paste the created link in Quorum. 

The Benefits

By implementing right click functionality between the two applications, Steptoe& Johnson’s end-users were provided with streamlined access to data residing outside of the document management system. 

"EIM has been one of our core technology partners for years and we continue to maintain a close working relationship. They know that we don't call unless we need help and when we do call, they're always there for us. In this particular case, one of their top consultants was already on site for another project and after spending a little time understanding the problem and designing a solution, was able to initially create this link to show as a proof of concept. Once we vetted the solution with our core teams, EIM quickly turned it around and provided top notch service to get it installed and deployed, helping us to turn the client's work around more efficiently. In the long run, if the client is happy, we're happy."
