Legal IT Newswire: Ascertus Upgrades Danish Law Firm, Bech-Bruun, to Latest Version of iManage Document Management System

Bech-Bruun contracts Ascertus for ongoing support and maintenance
London, U.K., 22 October 2019 – Ascertus Limited has successfully upgraded Bech-Bruun, a leading Denmark-based law firm, to the latest version of iManage Work document and email management system (DMS). Over 500 users of the DMS across the firm’s offices in Copenhagen, Aarhus, New York and Shanghai are now benefitting from the latest functionality offered by iManage Work 10.2, which in turn is delivering enhanced security and improved productivity across the organisation. Ascertus provides document and information lifecycle management solutions to law firms and corporate legal departments in the UK and across Europe.
Bech-Bruun has also contracted Ascertus for ongoing support and maintenance of the iManage solution. Explaining the firm’s reasons for selecting Ascertus, Stefan Winquist, CIO at Bech-Bruun, said, “Ascertus is reputed for being a reliable IT support partner in the market, this was an important consideration for us. On the technical side, the company has in-depth knowledge of the iManage product set alongside a good understanding of how law firms operate as a business. We’ve seen this first-hand with the upgrade. Ascertus’ approach to IT implementation and support is solid from every standpoint – resourcing, knowledge and customer service. Having them look after the ongoing maintenance of the solution was therefore logical.”
iManage Work 10.2 users at Bech-Bruun are benefitting from personalised search, enabled by the machine learning and data analytics capability within the solution. Collaboration is enhanced across teams too, which is aiding an increase in productivity. At the back end, the iManage Work platform is built on Common REST-based APIs, that are facilitating better integration with other solutions in the firm.
Roy Russell, CEO of Ascertus Limited, commented, “There is business value in upgrading to the latest version of any application as there are enhancements across the board – from user functionality to security. Given how important a DMS application is for law firms, iManage Work 10.2 opens up many options for law firms, especially for those who are looking to adopt newer technology strategies in the future including cloud and machine learning.”
