Positioned to deploy NetDocuments cloud based DMS, leveraging its 'geo-aware' storage platform, Microsoft Azure integration, and NetDocuments EM for advanced email management.
NetDocuments, the leading native cloud email and document management (DMS) provider for law firms and corporate legal departments, announced today that McLennan Ross LLP, a top firm with offices across Edmonton, Calgary, and Yellowknife in Alberta and Northwest territories, Canada, has completed the DMS selection process and will switch to NetDocuments, replacing its on-premises DMS. The decision to move to the cloud speaks to the firm’s commitment to client service, technology innovation, and a cloud-first strategy.
According to Chuck Martel, Information Systems Manager at McLennan Ross, the decision to switch its DMS was driven in a large part by the innovation and security initiatives NetDocuments brings to the legal DMS market. "NetDocuments' flexible storage options with ndFlexStore™ will allow our firm to leverage the global cloud-based platform while separating the data storage location – solving the long-standing issue of data sovereignty through delivering a single instance of software with intelligent 'geo-aware' document storage. This level of sophistication coupled with security, predictive email filing with NetDocuments EM™, and a 'cloud-first' approach to software development and integration is simply not found with other legal DMS providers today," concluded Martel.
NetDocuments' strategic partnership with Microsoft, including Office 365 and Azure for regional storage, is attracting global and regional firms with in-country data storage requirements and regulation.
"It’s exciting to see the technology innovation NetDocuments' R&D team is delivering to the market, solving the challenges of data sovereignty and country-specific regulation," Matt Duncan, CEO at NetDocuments, stated. "NetDocuments continues to lead the market's switch to a native cloud DMS, and we’re thrilled to welcome McLennan Ross to the growing global customer community."
NetDocuments recently announced that Orrick will also take advantage of NetDocuments ndFlexStore for regional 'geo-aware' storage, creating a single global instance of software with regional and in-country storage facilities.
