In a major Am Law 100 iManage swapout for NetDocuments, 750+ attorney law firm Sheppard Mullin will replace its incumbent DMS for NetDocuments’ cloud platform across its 15 offices in North America, Europe and Asia, NetDocuments will announce today.
Donna Paulson, CIO at Sheppard Mullin, which is headquartered in Los Angeles said: “At the end of the day, our cloud initiative is not just about solving our current DMS challenges, it’s about aligning with best-in-class technologies and service providers that have a proven track record of delivering world-class security solutions and continuous product innovation to take our firm into the future. The market’s trust in NetDocuments and the innovative approach to ‘cloud-first’ software development and delivery is something we don’t see with other legal DMS technology today. The move to NetDocuments will enable our firm to operate more efficiently, more securely, and better equipped with the ‘anywhere productivity’ tools our professionals need to continue providing exceptional service to our clients.”
NetDocuments’ single instance of software is deployed across all customer firms worldwide, bringing together a best-in-class technology stack, with continuous UI/UX and end-user functionality enhancements. Paulson adds: “NetDocuments’ security and technology infrastructure eliminates the complexity, management, and heavy desktop client required with on-premises or hosted on-premises environments, which solves a lot of challenges for our IT organization.”
“We’re excited to welcome Sheppard Mullin to our prestigious community of global customers,” Matt Duncan, CEO at NetDocuments, said. “The trust and cloud maturity that NetDocuments has built over the years is attracting firms of all sizes, including prestigious Global 100 firms such as Sheppard Mullin. The needs across firms are similar in that they are focused on optimizing their practice, delivering exceptional client service, providing world-class security, and empowering legal professionals with modern, mobile, and innovative productivity tools. We’re certainly honored to be Sheppard Mullin’s trusted partner to deliver on exactly that.”
