<p>WongPartnership to Use Interwoven WorkSite to Enhance Client Service
Through Improved Collaboration Among Attorneys</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia, October 27, 2004 – Interwoven, Inc. (Nasdaq: IWOV), provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions for business, today announced that WongPartnership, one of the largest law firms in Singapore, has selected Interwoven WorkSite 8 software as its document management and collaboration solution. WongPartnership will use WorkSite 8 to manage the firm’s high volume of documents and matter-related e-mails, enabling more efficient communication and workflow between the firm’s offices in Singapore and Shanghai.</p>
<p>Like many large law firms, WongPartnership faces the challenge of managing numerous, sometimes complicated cases, as well as the various types of documents associated with such cases. Interwoven WorkSite 8 will provide the firm with the most comprehensive document management and collaboration solution on the market today, enabling lawyers and staff to create, collaborate and store all business contents securely on one common platform. With capabilities such as seamless integration with Microsoft Office and Microsoft Outlook, WorkSite 8 will enable the firm to shorten document production lifecycles by improving workflow efficiencies and ensuring information accuracy.</p>
<p>One of the more technologically advanced law firms in the region with a comprehensive IT infrastructure in place, WongPartnership selected WorkSite after thorough consideration of the firm’s needs and exploring options with various other vendors. “WorkSite has a strong reputation in the legal industry worldwide as a solid document management system, is user-friendly with minimal learning curve required of our users, and has the scalability and flexibility to grow along with our firm,” said Kevin Koh, IT manager at WongPartnership. “We are impressed with the level of support provided by Interwoven and their partner, Efficient Office, working with us and helping us to understand the solution and the benefits from this investment. We know we have made the right decision.”</p>
<p>Interwoven WorkSite 8 is based on a new paradigm known as matter-centric collaboration (MCC). MCC represents a user-centric design, 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 done for more than 100 years 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 file that is accessible both internally and externally across departments and locations.</p>
<p>“The quality of services we provide to our clients is very important to us,” said Alvin Yeo, senior counsel and managing partner at WongPartnership. “WorkSite will further improve the services we deliver by allowing our practice groups to collaborate on ongoing matters and leverage the firm’s extensive knowledge base. The matter-centric solution from Interwoven provides us with the platform to work efficiently together, enabling each member of the team to maintain a high degree of visibility on the progress of each matter. This process has become critically important during this age of Internet communication in which we need to deliver fast and accurate advice to clients.”</p>
<p>“The fact that a top legal firm like WongPartnership has chosen Interwoven for its document management, e-mail management and collaboration needs, further validates that law firms worldwide are in need of a more efficient way to manage documents and e-mails in a single consistent manner,” said Dan Carmel, vice president and general manager, legal solutions at Interwoven. “As law firms across the globe look to technology to help them improve their client services, Interwoven is continuing to help them achieve this goal by providing the industry’s most complete document management and collaboration solution.”</p>
