The cloud revolution is exploding in the legal industry. Firms of all sizes are switching to specialized cloud vendors for critical applications that require high availability with anytime, anywhere access. This is a global trend, and one country where we're seeing incredible growth is Australia. Today ZDNet posted an article about the AU government "forcing itself into the cloud", and changing it's policy to further adopt and embrace cloud solutions.

We're thrilled to announce another leading AU firm, Cooper Grace Ward, has switched their document and email management from iManage to NetDocuments cloud-based service for increased security, mobility, and the need to have a modern document management and collaboration platform.
Press Release - Salt Lake City, UT - October 8, 2014
Cooper Grace Ward, one of Brisbane's largest independent law firms, has chosen NetDocuments to replace their existing on-premise document management solution with the help of Feynbrook, one of NetDocuments certified channel partners servicing the Australian market. NetDocuments' leading cloud-based service allows for the high level of security, collaboration, and search capabilities that Cooper Grace Ward requires as they continue to heavily invest in their technology processes firm-wide.
In an effort to provide exceptional service to their clients, Cooper Grace Ward
searched for an application that provided true cloud-based mobility and that would keep the firm on the forefront of technology. NetDocuments' solution matched their needs, and they were able to move from a legacy, on-site model into the security of the cloud. "Cooper Grace Ward's focus on modernizing technology has been crucial in their decision to choose NetDocuments," said Marc Duncan, regional sales manager in Australia. "Their commitment to their clients remains the firm's top focus, and NetDocuments will further legitimize this commitment by providing the firm a modern document management platform with enhanced security, collaboration, and efficiency."
The firm's decision to move to NetDocuments was a result of extensive due diligence and research to find a solution that best fits the firm's needs. "We chose NetDocuments because it is the only document management solution that addressed our requirements of ease of use and management, along with increasing the level of security for our documents and emails", said Miz Brmbota, IT Manager at Cooper Grace Ward. "It also allows us to share documents with clients and other professionals in a timely and seamless manner, and we look forward to leveraging the excellent functionality that comes out of the box."
