The Drumbeats are getting louder … NetDocuments adds Global Top 10 law firm to Cloud Platform Family
Alvin Tedjamulia, CTO
Earlier this week, we announced that Hogan Lovells, a top 10 global law firm with 49 offices and 7,000+ legal professionals, has selected NetDocuments as its document management platform for the future and key technology provider for the firm’s global innovation initiative.
As Hogan Lovells Global CIO Ash Banerjee stated, “We believe the NetDocuments platform to be a modern and feature rich platform that delivers on our current and future business requirements.”
Many factors played into the firm’s thoroughly researched and vetted decision to select NetDocuments but as our CEO Matt Duncan commented, “We believe NetDocuments' maturity and the scalability of our proven platform, as well as the trust we have earned through nearly two decades of consistently delivering innovative software solutions to our global customer community, were factors in the decision.”
In speaking with our internal team, they felt that NetDocuments' cloud maturity and our complete business focus on Software-as-a-Service and Multi-Tenancy were an important consideration.
Addressing key firm challenges around security and distributed storage are best solved by NetDocuments’ ndFlexStore for geo-aware document and email storage capable of both on-premise and Cloud repositories and the secured Customer Encryption Key Mgmt (CEKM) for dual-custody entropic cryptography.
User adoption is always paramount and NetDocuments’ UI/UX was preferred over competitive offerings based on end user demonstrations and project evaluations.
Furthermore, the strength of our Microsoft partnership was proven by the existing Microsoft Office integration with ndOffice as well as the native integration from Office365, which allows NetDocuments to be a native Cloud Storage Provider for Office 365.
So, what does this ‘new win’ mean to the market, above and beyond being our biggest law firm customer to date?
As many of you might know, I have been building cloud technology in legal for several decades, and as the co-founder of NetDocuments, always dreamed that we would end up here. We have the most capable and knowledgeable team and our technology platform has not only evolved with the times but has pioneered legal technology innovation disrupting the market. And, the partnerships and relationships we have forged with our 2,300+ customers, in their quest to better serve clients, further emboldens us to keep on pushing the innovation envelope.
Welcome, Hogan Lovells to the NetDocuments global family.
