Is your firm providing approved tools and software for you people to remain productive, mobile, and secure all at the same time? If so, do they like them? Better yet, do they use them? Every year NetDocuments holds a CIO Forum with some of our customer firms. We do this to get feedback on how to ultimately improve the document management service we've been providing for 15 years. It's always interesting to look back and reflect on the issues our customer firms were facing just a few years ago.
One of the greatest advantages of the SaaS model of cloud-based document management is that enhancements and upgrades are done automatically, leaving your organization to focus less on technology concerns and more on getting your job done. As opposed to clunky, on-premise installations that can be time consuming and costly, cloud installations like NetDocuments are managed and updated by the vendor and available as soon as you log in to your workstation.
One of the great benefits of a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform is that you're never on an outdated version of the software. NetDocuments updates its service four times per year, adding new features and functionality to keep your firm productive with the latest in document and email productivity tools. The next release, dubbed 14.4 (for the fourth release of 2014), is right around the corner on October 2. Don't miss this Webinar on September 26 as our our product team will go through the details of 14.4 to help you get the most out of this exciting update.

Five firms sat down in the UK to discuss the future of legal document management. This CIO roundtable event was then summarized and written up in a nice whitepaper available HERE. In addition to the whitepaper write-up, we sat down with Neil Davison, the IT Director at Farrer & Co to discuss NetDocuments and the legal technology landscape. Here is the Q&A with Neil... We came to the realization that to move forward as a business our current system wasn't cutting it. We needed a single repository, an e-file type product that could contain everything and support our way of working. We wanted to move forward and have a more intuitive product that people could work with.
Get ahead and learn what features will be releasing with the NetDocuments 14.4 release scheduled for October 2, 2014.

Leading Tennessee-based Law Firm, Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis, LLP, Selects NetDocuments to Continue Modernizing Technology Efforts
Press Release Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis LLP has selected NetDocuments for their document management system as efforts to modernize technology have emerged as a top priority for firm. Waller, one of Tennessee's oldest and most established law firms, has selected NetDocuments to replace its existing document management system. Modernizing technology continues to be a priority for Waller, and NetDocuments allows the firm to take its document management to the cloud, simplifying the firm's complex requirements of security, collaboration and mobility.
Law firms have a heightened need of security given the sensitive nature of matters that they deal with on a day-to-day basis. Added to this heightened security is the increasing number of breaches that have occurred in law firms recently. In fact, the FBI's New York office called a meeting in 2011 with the top New York City law firms to address the rising number of attacks in the industry and why it should be a priority to safeguard client data. Law firms are obvious targets for hackers, and the fact that some firms have not utilized current technology to avoid intrusion is alarming and should be noted.
Original Release We've announced a partnership with EIM International, a leading provider of knowledge and content management solutions. This technology partnership will extend NetDocuments' sales and implementation efforts, combining NetDocuments' power and simplicity with the experience and resources of EIM International. NetDocuments just announced this week a $25M capital investment to rapidly build on a successful strategy to increase market share in the legal industry, and building relationships with key legal technology partners such as EIM will aid NetDocuments in capturing market share and increasing adoption rates.
