NetDocuments, the leading secure, cloud-based content services platform for law firms and corporate legal and compliance departments, today announced a series of new innovation-focused product enhancements and Partner Network achievements at its annual customer and partner summit, ndElevate 2018, held at the Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City, Utah.
At the conference, the company celebrated innovation and company advancements and acknowledged its network of more than 200 technology, service and sales providers for their contributions. NetDocuments’ partner program has contributed largely to its exponential growth including the addition of 300 + new customers so far this year.
Watching the explosive growth and aggressive product development of NetDocuments over the last few years has been really exciting. We appreciate that we can recommend them to our clients with the confidence that they are reliable and secure in every aspect.- Debbie Foster, Affinity Consulting, NetDocuments Implementation Partner
Throughout the conference, company executives and industry thought leaders also outlined several product updates and announcements that have woven into the company’s strategy for continued innovation, growth and ‘unlimited possibilities’:
- Streamlined Filing within Outlook using ndMail – ndMail, launched March 2018, makes it possible to manage the client electronic matter file exclusively in the NetDocuments cloud. Relying on machine learning insights from content in the electronic matter file for a client or project, users can file a message with a single click using intelligent filing predictions. ndMail also allows users to map Outlook folders to NetDocuments filing locations and work with NetDocuments content without leaving Outlook.
- Topic-Based Conversations and Collaboration Functionality with ndThread – Customers can now use the social collaboration and matter-based messaging tool ndThread built within the NetDocuments cloud platform to interact with users worldwide. Launched in May 2018, ndThread, provides a more complete electronic matter file by incorporating threaded conversations and document-level messaging within NetDocuments’ existing matter-centric workspaces. In addition, it takes advantage of the platform’s robust security and search capabilities.
- Workspace Tabs Introduced with NetDocuments 18.3 - Released earlier this month, the introduction of tabs within the workspace creates a “center of gravity” of content for users working together. These tabs bring together key information relating to the matter that go beyond documents. Customers can add web-based content such as financial data or physical records management information and conversations from ndThread. The tabs make it easy for team members to message each other inside a matter and provide a location for partners to share matter-related information directly associated with the workspace.
- NetDocuments OCR Provides Customers with Advanced Document and Image Management – Now generally available, the technology is delivered as a secure cloud-to-cloud service powered by DocsCorp ContentCrawler technology. NetDocuments’ OCR automatically converts scanned and image files to text-searchable documents, augmenting the value and information found in the matter file and improving discoverability of that content.
These product enhancements and strategic partnerships are just a few more examples of the unlimited possibilities created by the NetDocuments platform for legal technology. We are happy to report our success is being proven through the accelerating growth of our company.- Josh Baxter, CEO at NetDocuments
ndElevate has evolved from a mostly closed-door customer meeting 11+ years ago, to a separate user and partner events in 2010, to the now sold out partner/customer conference in 2018. The combined customer and partner event, focused on four days of technology, business and training sessions, extensive networking, and prominent keynotes.
