Sydney, Australia

NetDocuments, the leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) email and document management (DMS) provider for law firms and corporate legal departments, announced Gilbert + Tobin, a top-tier leading independent firm with over 550 people across offices in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth, Australia, will upgrade its on-premises DMS to NetDocuments native cloud-based service to achieve greater usability, mobility, and improved security. Gilbert + Tobin services corporate and government clients across the APAC region and around the globe.

"This DMS transition is very strategic for the firm and ultimately leverages modern technology to elevate the level of customer service we provide to our clients, which directly supports our firm's commitment to innovation," Mitch Owens, Head of IT Operations at Gilbert + Tobin, commented. "NetDocuments' user-centric platform provides the productivity tools that unlock our people from their desks with inherent mobility, client collaboration, and an intuitive, feature-rich interface – something we simply weren't able to achieve with the previous on-premises DMS."

The always-improving and innovating SaaS/cloud platform will play a key role in the firm's security, risk management, and information governance initiatives. NetDocuments' world-class security and compliance measures are built-in to the global SaaS platform, which benefits the entire global customer base as the service continually improves.

"Additionally, as we pursue more business in the financial services and government sector, the ability to detail that our critical data stores have industry leading compliance such as IS27001, HIPAA, and SOC 2 Type 2 will ensure we meet the requirements of current and future clients. And, the local Australian-based datacentre infrastructure ensures our data always remains within Australia," concluded Owens.

"We're extremely excited to have Gilbert + Tobin join our global customer community, and add to the increasing momentum and native-cloud adoption in Australia and across APAC," stated Paul Wyatt, NetDocuments' APAC Sales Director. "NetDocuments' 'cloud-first' approach to software development and integration, as well as the close alignment and strategic relationship with Microsoft and Office 365, make NetDocuments the innovative platform of choice as law firms increasingly look to take their practice into the future. The NetDocuments solution aligns perfectly with G+T's own innovation strategy allowing the Gilbert + Tobin team to work with clients and startups to explore better ways of meeting client needs, new business models and more efficient business processes."
