<p>Recent Butler Group Report Reinforces Interwoven as Top ECM Vendor for Legal Industry Worldwide</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia, October 7, 2004 – Interwoven, Inc., provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions for business, today announced that the Butler Group, a leading IT analyst company, has recognised Interwoven in its September TECHwatch report as a leading provider of document management and collaboration solutions for the legal industry in Australia. The report reinforces Interwoven’s already established leadership position among top North American and UK legal firms.</p>
<p>“Interwoven has always been especially strong in the legal space with around 60 percent of leading lawyers as its customers,” commented Graeme Philipson, senior research associate for Butler Group. “With Minter Ellison, Gilbert + Tobin, Mallesons and Clayton Utz amongst its clients locally, it is clear that Interwoven is now leading this sector in the Australian market. Interwoven has also used its successful legal practice profile to enter a number of leading multi-nationals, such as Coca-Cola, Merrill Lynch and Microsoft, through their corporate legal departments.”</p>
<p>“The single greatest testament to the quality of any product is customers voting with their budgets to select it over the competition,” said Dan Carmel, vice president and general manager of Legal, Professional Services, and Enterprise Compliance Solutions for Interwoven. “WorkSite 8 allows firms to work in ways not possible with competing systems, and our acknowledged success in the Australian market is the proof. It is gratifying to see customers embracing matter-centric collaboration and successfully addressing pressing business challenges such as e-mail management with our solution.”</p>
<p>More than 800 law firms and 600,000 legal professionals worldwide rely on Interwoven WorkSite, the industry-leading document management and collaboration solution. Interwoven WorkSite 8 software, released earlier this year, significantly enhances and builds on the proven reliability and market-leading customer satisfaction of the WorkSite brand; adding critical and timely functionality including: e-mail management to capture and file e-mails alongside the documents to which they pertain; caching to enable firms to effectively manage matters across offices; and matter-centric collaboration (MCC), a new user-centric paradigm, which, for the first time, enables lawyers and other professional services practitioners to manage matter-related content in the electronic world the way they have traditionally done in the physical world. MCC creates the true electronic equivalent of a case file by consolidating documents, e-mails, billing, contacts, and all other relevant content for any given matter in a single integrated repository that is secure and accessible both internally and externally across departments and locations.</p>
<p>Launched in mid 2003, the Interwoven E-mail Management Solution has gained record adoption among leading global law firms. E-mail has quickly become a primary medium for matter-related communications and keeping these associated with the matter files they pertain to has been a challenge for many firms. Interwoven’s E-mail Management solution has proven to be highly effective and has won solid customer support in addressing the industry’s urgent need for better storage and visibility of e-mail communications.</p>
<p>Worldwide, over 280 law firms have switched from competing systems to Interwoven WorkSite. In the US, leading law firms that have switched to WorkSite, contributing to Interwoven’s market share leadership in legal, include Dechert LLP; Holland &amp; Knight LLP; Kilpatrick Stockton LLP; and Willkie Farr &amp; Gallagher LLP. Interwoven WorkSite adoption continues to grow in Europe, where law firms that have chosen WorkSite include Herbert Smith; Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer; DLA; Bristows; Stibbe and Martineau Johnson.</p>
