NetDocuments acquires Decisiv email technology from Recommind

NetDocuments, the cloud-based document and email management service, has acquired Decisiv Email from Recommind. Recommind Australia is responsible for the product development of Decisiv Email, a commercial client and server software for enterprise collaborative email management leader in the legal industry.

 “This is truly a case of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts” said Matt Duncan, CEO of NetDocuments. 

“Anyone in our industry who has seen or experienced Decisiv Email knows it’s simply the most powerful email management solution in the market. The Australian-based team brings a wealth of industry knowledge that will complement NetDocuments’ core service. 

“We truly believe that combining Decisiv Email with NetDocuments will result in the most modern and intuitive matter-centric content management solution ever made available to the legal market.”

Richard Verschoor, former managing director of Decisiv Email and now VP of NetDocuments Email Management, stated, “While other document management vendors tout predictive filing, no vendor has anything close to the advanced predictive algorithms contained in Decisiv Email. Building predictive algorithms that actually work, takes years of iterative development and we’ve been building and working on Decisiv Email technology for nearly ten years.”

According to ILTA’s 2014 technology survey and purchasing survey, email management remains one of the most pressing technology issues facing law firms today. Decisiv Email solves email management issues by understanding email content and user patterns in order to accurately predict where an email should be filed.  It then allows users to file email with just one click. 

NetDocuments will support existing Decisiv Email customers and intend to integrate some components of the Decisiv Email technology with NetDocuments’ cloud-based infrastructure. 

The Decisiv technology allows for robust predictive filing based on key criteria such as To, From, Cc, Subject, contents, etc. Predicted locations are visually ranked, indicating probability and enabling filing to the correct matter with just one click. Automatic filing can be enabled with a set threshold (e.g. email that reaches a 95% confidence rank or higher will be automatically filed to the predicted matter).
