Step 4 of our 5 Part Series on Successfully Implementing Technology
This is step four in our five part series on how to successfully deploy a firm-wide technology. If you missed the previous posts you can start from the beginning right HERE.

Part 3 of Our 5 Keys to Successfully Deploy Technology
Continuing in our five part series on how to effectively deploy technology at your firm, we're on to step 3: Test. If you missed the previous posts, you can start from the beginning right HERE. As the project team follows, communicates, and executes the plan, it's critical that ongoing testing takes place to ensure the key components of the overall configuration are interacting as expected. This is especially true with the individual workstation configurations and potential variability across different environments within the firm and applications used outside of the office.

Winning the Battle Before it Begins: 5 keys to a successful technology rollout
Technology is part of your overall business strategy, or at least it should be. It's especially important in business decisions when a potential tech change is happening with a mission-critical application like a CRM system or document management platform. Successfully swapping out a technology that is vital to your day to day business requires a detailed plan of action because the execution of implementing a technology will determine the level of user adoption, productivity, how much value you get out of the tech, and how fast you realize that value.
NetDocuments' Response to the Internet Explorer Security News
This post is describing the recent IE issues. Even though it is not specific to NetDocuments, we have had a number of customers ask us about this, so we are providing this information as a resource. An Internet Explorer exploit was discovered last weekend and Microsoft provided a patch yesterday to resolve the issue with IE versions 10 and 11. NetDocuments provides support for several browsers, one of which is Internet Explorer. Because of the issue, users who cannot update to the newer browsers where a patch has been made available by Microsoft, there are some other suggestions that Microsoft has provided as workarounds which are listed below. Of course using another supported browser is also an option for users.
