Leading Belgian Law Firm, Van Bael & Bellis, Choose I.R.I.S. to Implement WorkSite Document and Email Management Solution

I.R.I.S. Best Practice solution to help address business challenges, providing efficiency improvements, greater scalability and adoption of mobile technologies

I.R.I.S. Nederland B.V., one of Europe’s largest specialists in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced that Van Bael & Bellis, a leading independent law firm based in Brussels, has selected I.R.I.S. to implement HP WorkSite. The solution, based on I.R.I.S. Best Practice for Law Firms, will mean Van Bael & Bellis can better manage their case related documentation and email.

Van Bael & Bellis’ existing document management solution, custom developed for the law firm, was no longer suitable for the new ways of working necessary in today’s information centric society. The solution had no mobile device capability, nor was it able to automatically store and manage emails, a critical and significant communication medium. This presented a problem for the firm’s lawyers who often need access to documentation whilst on the move, away from the office. The lack of automatic email storage also meant that electronic case files risked being incomplete.

“In order to provide the best possible service to our clients, we need the capabilities that I.R.I.S. is able to offer us. This new solution will provide the platform for us to improve efficiency through mobile information access, giving us a scalable platform for the future.”
– Philippe De Baere, Partner at Van Bael & Bellis

I.R.I.S. is working in close cooperation with Van Bael & Bellis’ own IT department. The foundation of HP WorkSite will be augmented by the knowledge and skills that I.R.I.S. has built up over many deployments to law firms. The solution will include I.R.I.S. FastTrack consulting services and support and will be deployed to over 80 users, the majority of whom will also access the solution from mobile devices.

“As well as the improvements in mobile access that the new solution will provide, for the first time we will also be able to store email correspondence with the relevant case file, quickly and easily. In conjunction with the advanced search capabilities, intuitive, easy to use interface, the overall efficiency improvements will ultimately lead to a better service for our clients,” adds Philippe De Baere.

Rob van der Drift, Account Manager WorkSite at I.R.I.S. adds, “Van Bael & Bellis is the latest in a long line of law firms to select I.R.I.S. to implement and support such a critical solution for their business. We welcome them to this growing list of firms throughout Europe and look forward to working closely with them to ensure they maximise their return on their investment.”
