Prosperoware today announced that it has added the ability to consolidate iManage WorkSite databases to its Milan Move & Archive product, which it has renamed Milan Move, Archive & Consolidate or Milan MAC. Milan MAC represents the latest addition to the growing family of Prosperoware products that help firms who use WorkSite as their document management system address the increasing complexity of managing data in today's digital environment.
Managing data has strained the resources of law firms and other professional services. The explosive growth of data volumes, especially electronically stored information and email, combined with the pace of law firm mergers, the churn created by lateral moves of lawyers, and stringent regulatory requirements all contribute to the pressure. Increasing the complexity of managing data is the wide variety in the range and scale of data moves, such as when end users simply need to move a few documents from one WorkSite database to another or when firms merge, which requires moving millions of documents in a very short time frame.
How Prosperoware addresses the problem
Milan MAC addresses these variables with two technology options that enable firms to accommodate on demand, scheduled, bulk and "superbulk" move operations. Milan MAC streamlines a broad range of move operations by distributing the ability to make moves to staff outside the IT organization with simple right-click processes.
Milan MAC is also the only software on the market to allow end users and administrators to move folders and their contents
databases. For example, when users accidentally create documents in the wrong database, they can now easily move documents between databases without IT help with a simple right-click command. In a complex move operation, for example if lawyers move from one location to the other—perhaps from the
office to the
office—administrators can move the data associated with their matters, even if the move is to a different WorkSite server.
During consolidation, Milan MAC uniquely enables moves of legacy folder structures as well as workspaces, assuring that critical information is not lost because it has been organized differently.
