Microsoft Legal Department Streamlines Paper Processes

Microsoft Corporation is an American multinational software corporation headquartered in Redmond, WA, that develops, manufactures, licenses and supports a wide range of products and services related to computing. The company was founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen on April 4, 1975. Microsoft is the world’s largest software maker measured by revenues. It is also one of the world’s most valuable companies.

The Problem

Microsoft’s Legal and Corporate Affairs (LCA) division had a paper problem that needed a resolution. For example, the Legal Team was buried in paper records, and with strict requirements on their record-keeping process, paper was creating business bottlenecks due to the inefficiencies of physical records. The records facility was growing at a rate of 3,000 files per month, adding to the already 35,000 files in storage. Many of the files, up to two reams in length, were difficult to manage, and retrievals were creating an adverse impact on team efficiency. “Retrieving files was a lengthy and complicated process,” said Joe Do, Microsoft Program Manager for Corporate Records and Contract Automation. “Record clerks were inundated with requests for files, and records were constantly being copied and recreated to provide the Legal Team with working copies.”
