iManage Work Connector for SharePoint

iManage Work users manage and access all documents, emails, and other communications streams in a single project-specific workspace, securely accessible from anywhere, on any device.

It is also referred to as WorkSite, or HP Autonomy WorkSite, or simply iManage, and it has become a mainstay of legal firms globally. iManage Work makes it possible for firms to:

  • Capture content associated with a project or matter for better regulatory compliance, improved knowledge sharing, and enhanced retention execution
  • Secure content for protection of confidential information, reduced access to sensitive content, and increased control of assets and expertise
  • Centralize project/matter management for fast access, enhanced support for field, remote and on-site teams, and for global reach

iManage Indexing Connectors for SharePoint

The iManage Work Connector honors the security of the source application and provides both full and incremental crawls so the users have the latest information available to them all the time.

Many law firms take advantage of SharePoint as their knowledge management and enterprise search platform. Integrating iManage Work with SharePoint makes it easier for lawyers and other firm employees throughout the organization to find important information stored in Work, without the need to directly log in and perform a separate search.

BA Insight offers a comprehensive portfolio of software focused on the legal market including, but not limited to, connectors for Aderant, iManage Work, Elite / 3E, LegalKEY, LexisNexis Interaction, NetDocuments, PLC/Practical Law, ProLaw, and WestKM.

BA Insight’s iManage Work for SharePoint Connector securely indexes both the full text and metadata of documents in the Work workspaces into SharePoint’s search engine, enabling a single searchable result set across content from multiple repositories. This allows organizations to tap into the wealth of information accessible within Work, SharePoint and other repositories , making that data instantly actionable to users through search. 

The BA Insight iManage Work Connector provides full security and operates at high throughput to minimize crawl times while maintaining a low performance impact on Work. It only requires read access, and there is no need to install client software on any iManage server. This results in seamless and simultaneous access to all content stored in iManage Work.
