NetDocuments, a leading cloud-based document and email management provider, today announced Keesal, Young & Logan (KYL), a prominent business law firm with an international client base, has selected NetDocuments cloud-based document management service (DMS) to replace their existing on-premises system.
Attending LegalTech West Coast in San Francisco, where the firm is currently a finalist for an LTN Innovation Award, KYL's Director of Information, Justin Hectus, stated, "We invest in the best technology available because it directly benefits our clients. Our previous system was stable and doing its job, but the switch to NetDocuments provides opportunities for more efficient cross-office collaboration, increased mobility, enhanced security, quicker recovery in the event of a disaster, and overall improved service for our global clients, all of which are key objectives for the firm. A DMS upgrade wasn't even in the plan for 2015, but the NetDocuments value proposition was so strong that we shuffled our priorities to make it happen."
The firm primarily services the western United States and APAC region, and plans to deploy NetDocuments across all five offices located in Long Beach, San Francisco, Seattle, Anchorage, and Hong Kong. Two-time ILTA Distinguished Peer Award honoree Hectus continues, "NetDocuments reduces the complexity of the infrastructure our IT group manages while immediately increasing the sophistication of the application in ways that reduce risk and increase our capabilities – it's the paradox of the cloud. We'll be able to deploy NetDocuments across all five of our offices, improving our information governance and security with a single repository and most importantly without disrupting our staff or ongoing client work."
KYL joins NetDocuments global customer community on the heels of several major announcements, including ISO 27001 certification, enhanced encryption key management, and the acquisition of Decisiv Email from Recommind. "KYL is a progressive firm that understands the value of being proactive in upgrading their technology to a platform that will ultimately bring more value to the firm and client base," Marc Duncan, Sr. Account Manager at NetDocuments, commented. "The firm is coming onboard at a very exciting time in the market as firms of all sizes are reaping the benefits of relying on specialized cloud providers like NetDocuments to achieve enhanced security, improved mobility, and ultimately, affecting their bottom line with increased productivity."
