Organizations partner to modernize firm DMS technology, improving security and productivity for document and email management across 25 offices, 1,200 attorneys, and 2,600 people.
Salt Lake City, UT – July 14, 2016 – NetDocuments, the leading Software-as-a-Service document and email management (DMS) provider for law firms and corporate legal departments, announced today that the global law firm Orrick has made the decision to replace its on-premises DMS with NetDocuments, the go-to modern native cloud technology platform for improved security, usability, mobility, and data storage flexibility.
Orrick focuses on advising sector leaders in technology, energy & infrastructure and finance, and is recognized as one of the most innovative law firms. "NetDocuments will provide improved features and functionality," said Craig Dean, Orrick's CTO, "but just as importantly it will enable our global teams to collaborate on a modern technology platform that will provide our lawyers and our clients the highest levels of data security, built-in mobility, and data storage flexibility."
NetDocuments' flexible 'geo-aware' storage architecture will enable the firm to store content where it chooses, while providing a seamless experience to end-users who can access the same modern service from wherever they are around the globe. "NetDocuments will also support significant improvements in the ways we directly share information and collaborate with our clients," noted Justin Cooper, an Orrick partner and chair of the firm's Technology Committee.
"We're thrilled to welcome Orrick to the growing list of sophisticated firms adopting the NetDocuments platform and contributing to our customer community," said Matt Duncan, CEO at NetDocuments. "The rapid growth we're seeing is fuelled in a large part by client-driven demands for improved security, as well as end-user demands for a modern service that works the way they do today."
NetDocuments' technology architecture and flexible storage options solve key data sovereignty and information governance concerns for global firms such as Orrick. "The ability to separate our native cloud application from the actual storage layer of content enables international firms like Orrick to solve long-standing issues around data security and data sovereignty, while also achieving a global 'one-firm view' of firm matters and content – something very difficult to achieve with the traditional DMS technology stack," concluded Duncan.
"Document management is a critical piece of our information governance strategy, and we just didn't feel like our incumbent vendor was keeping up. Because NetDocuments is a subscription service updated several times per year, we'll have the benefit of a proven cloud technology that will keep pace with the market, client, and personnel demands for a modern platform that delivers productivity, mobility, and security." Rob O'Rielly, CIO at Davis Wright Tremaine
"As a firm focused on the future, technology is integral to our operations and provides a competitive advantage. NetDocuments gives us the agility and simplicity we require to keep pace with evolving technology and client demand. Its scalability and security fit our needs." Mike Green, CIO at Nixon Peabody
"NetDocuments will help us adapt to the ever-changing legal technology landscape as well as meet personnel and client needs for security and usability. The NetDocuments cloud platform will enable our firm to achieve levels of mobility and security simply not possible with the traditional document management system stack." Judith Flournoy, CIO at Kelley Drye
"NetDocuments' user-centric platform provides the productivity tools that unlock our people from their desks with inherent mobility, client collaboration, and an intuitive, feature-rich interface – something we simply weren't able to achieve with the previous on-premises DMS." Mitch Owens, Head of IT Operations at Gilbert + Tobin
"NetDocuments has not only improved our internal IT efficiency, but has also elevated the level of service and security we can now provide to our clients. Our users now have the document and email management solution they need to help move our firm forward from a technology and client service standpoint." George Casbeer, Chief Administrative Officer at Dykema
"We are seeing a major shift in the legal industry in terms of the security requirements and usability demands from our personnel as well as our client base. NetDocuments meets these needs, and elevates our security and compliance initiatives to a level that goes well beyond what firms can achieve by themselves or with traditional server-based or hosted systems." John Green, CIO at Baker Donelson
"We looked for a supplier with a solution that matched our appetite for innovation and had the ability to deliver market leading document management capabilities. NetDocuments, with the most secure, scalable and flexible approach to document management, was by far the best choice." Maurice Tunney, IT Director at Keystone Law
"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." Justin Hectus, Director of Information at Keesal, Young & Logan
