For clients operating in professional services, one of the biggest challenges with the Microsoft ecosystem is the number of third-party applications and add-ins. “Microsoft users rely on myriad third-party products to meet industry-specific functional requirements, and it often becomes difficult for users to understand all of the various pieces from various vendors,” adds Joy Heath Rush, Vice President of Client Development.
To resolve these issues, Litéra starts with end users’ need and builds the capabilities they require on top of the existing Microsoft platform. Litéra maximizes the benefit of investments in Microsoft technology and minimizes the amount of new training and processes required. “With a focus on non-disruptive integration into day-to-day user workflow, our suite of proven solutions immediately impact efficiency while scaling to any size office environment to provide maximum administrative control and information security,” explains Rush. For this purpose, the company focuses on particular vertical markets, using the expertise of a veteran management team with an emphasis on customer input and service.
The company’s flagship document comparison product is used by a majority of the world’s top law firms. Change-Pro Total Document Comparison (TDC),is a patented technology that enables users to compare every letter, table, embedded object and image pixel for the most accurate and reliable comparison possible.
One of the secret ingredients to Litéra’s success is the ability to allow CIO’s and system administrators to tailor user software interaction by user or by group, oftentimes setting the solution to run in a manner that is completely invisible to the user. A good example of this is Litéra’s patented metadata removal solution, Metadact-e. The mailroom worker, and other users not in a position to see the bigger security picture, can be configured to have zero control of the metadata removal process once they hit send on an email. Managers, or tech savvy users who have the need and understand better the client/company security requirements, can be given varying degrees of control over which metadata is scrubbed from any particular email attachments, including those from mobile devices.
“Going forward, at a higher level, our aim is to integrate with a broader set of enterprise infrastructure players for key workloads like messaging, internet, document management and HR systems. We have unparalleled expertise in the area of collaboration and we will continue to focus on professional and financial services enterprises and continue staffing our own organization with the best people,” concludes Rush.
Though we have applications that help CIO’s migrate to the cloud, our software works anywhere without forcing companies to go there
