Macpherson Kelley will upgrade its on-premises document and email management technology to NetDocuments native cloud-based platform across the firm’s four offices and 300 legal professionals.
NetDocuments, the leading cloud-based document and email management (DMS) platform for law firms and corporate legal departments, announced today that Macpherson Kelley has selected NetDocuments to replace its existing on-premises DMS technology for improved security, scalability, and productivity. Feynbrook, a certified NetDocuments partner, will manage the technology transition and deployment of the SaaS cloud platform.
Matt Purves, Chief Information Officer at Macpherson Kelley, commented on the decision. “As a corporate and commercial law firm, the technology we use on a daily basis to service our clients across Australia and internationally, is a key piece of our overall business and technology strategy. NetDocuments’ focus on delivering continuous innovation around mobility and security coupled with seamless Microsoft integrations and legal-specific device synchronisation is the technology platform with personal productivity tools our legal professionals need and clients demand. Powerful search, mobility, platform flexibility, and built-in security and compliance, including ISO 27001 and ISO 27018 were all key factors and we simply don’t see possible with on-premises or hosted DMS technology available in the market today.”
With over 2,000 global customers and hundreds of thousands of users, NetDocuments operates a single instance of software across its regional data centres in the US, UK, and Australia. “The leverage and economies of scale of a single global application allows us to deliver scalability and flexibility across the platform,” Paul Wyatt, APAC Director at NetDocuments stated. “This allows our customer firms to benefit from incredible computing power, enterprise search, and built-in business continuity without the cost, complexity, or management required with an on-premises or hosted DMS. We’re pleased to have Macpherson Kelley join NetDocuments’ customer community of progressive firms who are leveraging leading cloud technology to improve the way they practice law and service their clients.”
