Calgary law firm set to provide faster, more efficient, collaborative, and mobile access to all content
Alberta-based 50 lawyer firm, McLeod Law LLP has chosen NetDocuments to be its email and document management platform. The firm will transition to the cloud-based integrated platform for document and email management. To address stringent document location requirements, the firm will use the NetDocuments ndFlexStore to physically store documents and emails in the cloud, in Microsoft Azure datacenters, in local on-premises stores, or in any combination while simultaneously leveraging NetDocuments' global cloud platform.
The firm completed a thorough evaluation of several document management systems (DMS) technologies and preferred NetDocuments. The user-friendly interface will increase user-adoption while reducing training requirements
“Beyond being a DMS, NetDocuments will make our lawyers more mobile, allowing them to access a clients’ entire file history at their fingertips,” says Managing Partner, Robin Lokhorst. “This will give us a strategic advantage when it comes to Court and being out-of-office. It will also help reduce time spent searching for precedents or clauses and will make us much more effective and efficient.”
What also separated NetDocuments from others is the 100% cloud infrastructure which allows for automated roll-outs of features and fixes without added expenses or internal resources. NetDocuments’ existing interface with Microsoft Office 365 is also unique and superior to other technologies and accommodates what McLeod Law already uses.
Transitioning from a folder-based structure, McLeod Law will leverage NetDocuments to address immediate DMS needs including:
- Improved response time for client questions
- Rapid access to files and precedents
- Centralized management of matter files
- Workflow and task automation
- Simply and efficiently adding or scanning in new documents and files
- Integration with other existing firm software
- Document version control with access logs
- Automated archiving and records management
“We are very excited to have McLeod Law join NetDocuments and provide its lawyers and user base a vastly improved and highly functioning document management experience,” stated John Martucci, strategic account manager at NetDocuments. “Whether it’s the world-class cloud security, focus on user adoption and collaboration or enterprise search functionality, NetDocuments delivers future-proofed technology McLeod can build upon.”
