Harper Grey becomes first Vancouver firm to select NetDocuments

Vancouver-based law firm Harper Grey, which is one of the leading regional law firms in Western Canada, has selected NetDocuments. The firm chose the secure, localised, cloud-based NetDocuments document management platform plus its ndMail predictive email solution after extensive competitive review and evaluation of other legal document management providers. The addition of Harper Grey brings the number of Canadian users to 1,600.
“We are harnessing the cloud-based SaaS model to achieve data redundancy and ‘always on’ access to our critical services,” said Dharam Dheensaw, chief information officer at Harper Grey.
“We truly embraced NetDocuments as a business partner throughout the selection process and are pleased to join the NetDocuments family while looking forward to evolving and operating at the leading edge of innovation.”
He added: “The transition to NetDocuments not only improves our internal document and filing efficiencies, but also enables the firm to move from a static document repository to a dynamic, feature-rich knowledge management solution that enables us to work more efficiently, and deliver first-rate legal services to our clients.”
Harper Grey will utilize ndFlexStore to store its data in Canada. NetDocuments’ ndFlexStore supports any combination of global, regional, and private storage under a “single library” concept. This permits any user, anywhere worldwide to search, navigate, and access any document globally and transparently, subject only to the security and ethical wall rights regardless of the data storage location.
Dheensaw said: “The NetDocuments partnership with Microsoft Azure via the ndFlexStore provides us with a Canadian-based cloud storage option, and their ISO 27001, 27018, and 27017 certifications ensure the highest level of data encryption and document-level security.”
NetDocuments recent wins include UK top 50 firm Travers Smith and global giant Hogan Lovells.
