Origin Stories Are Real: Our Journey to Work Inspired
Aug, 25, 2020
Every company has an origin story.
For example, HP’s famous tale of Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard, working tirelessly in their 12x18 foot garage to build their first product. Or consider Steve Jobs and Dave Wozniak, tinkering in their own garage to build that very first home office computer. These stories became a metaphor for ‘entrepreneurial spirit,’ which eventually gave way to why they did it in the first place. HP’s why? Achieve & Contribute. Apple’s why? Think Different.
Our origin story is Alvin Tedjamulia, Brad Clements and the Duncan Brothers intimately understanding the power of document management to protect and enrich business and legal documents for organizational benefit and profit. Like peanut butter and jelly or bangers and mash, when combined with the scale of the CLOUD, the power of document management took on a new meaning. Our founders were inspired to do something no one had done before
From an inspired start, NetDocuments is obsessed with helping our customers. When we recently asked our customers what more we could do to help them succeed, we certainly expected answers focused on ‘how’ our service operates. But what surprised us was people cared about ‘why’ we do what we do.
The NetDocuments why? Work Inspired.
What Does it Mean to Work Inspired?
Alvin Tedjamulia, our co-founder and CTO says, “Inspiration is the natural urge to be creative, and when you work in an inspired way your job is not just a job. It’s a natural part of yourself.”
NetDocuments helps lawyers – individually and collectively – Work Inspired by delivering on promises, providing technology that gets out of their way so they can focus on results, and eliminating the need to re-invent the wheel. When lawyers can spend less time searching and more time doing, when they can stop playing hide-and-seek with their documents, and know that they never have to sacrifice productivity for security – they become free to Work Inspired.
We Build Solutions so You Can Work Inspired
True to our innovative origins, we are taking Work Inspired a step further. Building on our core technology pillars that have been enabling inspired work for the last twenty-one years, we’re delivering 5 new solutions—ORGANIZE, PROTECT, PLAN, DELIVER, and LEARN—that create structure and provide the framework required for legal professionals to create new habits that lead to consistent, positive outcomes.
ORGANIZE compiles millions of documents into a single source of truth. It is comprised of the core NetDocuments capabilities including document and email management, and OCR technologies, all best-in-class, cloud-based, legal-specific solutions.
PROTECT builds confidence (and not stress) in your security. It delivers additional controls and policy tools to reduce data breaches, as well as a geo-aware storage capability that enables better compliance while accelerating content delivery around the world.
PLAN helps lawyers stop re-inventing the wheel and focus on clients and results. It is designed to bring teams together with one version of work focused on easy-to-use tools coordinating teams and tasks, provide real-time team communication with ndThread and Microsoft Teams integration, and facilitate task management across matters and projects.
DELIVER brings work to life by making documents as intelligent as people. It helps safely organize, package, and share content with clients, customers, outside counsel, and other third parties using built-in extranet and document bundling tools.
LEARN helps lawyers spend less time searching and more time doing by providing insights about user activity, understanding of documents, and includes enterprise search-driven knowledge management insights.
Each solution provides a new paradigm for legal work. It gives lawyers the means to step away from clunky, disorganized, and frustrating technology and work within a truly inspired environment.
Embrace Your Inspiration
Both our customers and the clients of our customers must convert economic resources into wealth, or things into goods. And while entropy, or randomness, is a basis for data protection, it often stands in the way of inspired work.
The new NetDocuments solutions provide the framework for our customers and their lawyers to impose order in a random world. These solutions help them rethink the way things are done so they can stop re-inventing the wheel, pulling their hair out over convoluted security policies, or spending time searching for answers right in front of them.
With NetDocuments, millions of scattered documents become one source of unified insights. Your content management processes and workflows make the leap from intuitive to invisible. The full power of your collective knowledge and past work becomes available wherever your people need it. And every document gets the industry’s best protection against any type of threat—from careless employees to nation state attacks.
It’s time for a new decade free of limitations or restrictions.
It’s time for new habits that create growth.
It’s time to Work Inspired.
