NetDocuments Customer Appreciation

As a SaaS company, we understand that rather than providing our customers with a product, we are offering a service. Because of this business model, our customers act more as partners in the business rather than just customers.

They discussed emerging SaaS technologies, and how SaaS solutions have helped their firms by reducing IT costs, and enabling their lawyers to practice law more efficiently.
