Many Top Am Law 200 Firms Depend on Océ for Document Management Services

<p>NEW YORK--Océ Business Services, a leader in document process management services and technology, announced it provides outsourced document management and electronic discovery services to 20 of the top 50 Am Law 200 firms. This includes three of the top 10 firms and nine of the top 20 firms. The just-released Am Law 200 list, which is published annually by ALM Media Properties, ranks the top U.S. law firms according to gross revenue.</p> <p>As an example of the value Océ Business Services provides, one award-winning law firm was sending its document printing and imaging work to outside vendors because the firm’s print/copy center couldn’t support the workload. Océ assumed management of the print/copy center, which included deploying a new fleet of networked MFPs as well as improving the firm’s document imaging workflow. As a result, the firm’s litigation copying costs dropped 53 percent and a new digital document submission process to the print/copy center helped cut print/copy turnaround by 25 percent.</p>
