Am Law 100 firm Pillsbury swapping out HP for NetDocuments
NetDocuments just announced that Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, a New York-based Am Law 100 firm with more than 1500 people and 18 offices, will soon replace HP Autonomy FileSite with NetDocuments Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering for cloud-based document management.
“Document management is a critical piece of our information governance strategy,” Martin Metz, Pillsbury’s CIO, stated. “NetDocuments will simplify the various ways we manage and access information. We believe that adding NetDocuments to our portfolio does more than just modernize our document management system; it will provide better tools for our attorneys who travel and provide new ways of sharing information directly with clients. Moreover, the additional layer of security and redundancy continues our advancements in building a state-of-the-art data security model. We do it well today, but we will do it even better tomorrow.”
“We have been working with the NetDocuments team for a while now,” Metz continued, “and our confidence in the decision continues to grow. Internal focus groups are shaping how we will configure the product and integrate it with our email management program, Decisiv Email. We are all very excited and working hard to move from pilot to production.”
Matt Duncan, CEO of NetDocuments, sees the switch as a growing market shift from on-premises systems into a modern, and more secure, cloud-based platform. “What NetDocuments is doing in terms of security, availability, and mobility, is really driving broad acceptance and adoption of the service among large and prestigious firms like Pillsbury,” Matt Duncan said. “We’re extremely pleased to have them as one of our valued customers and partners that will help take the NetDocuments modern document management platform into the future.”
