Frayman Group (a provider of new business intake and risk management software for law firms) and NetDocuments (the leading SaaS based document management and collaboration vendor for law firms) today announced a strategic relationship, whereby the companies will work together to provide seamless integration between the NetDocuments SaaS DMS and Frayman’s Compliguard risk management platform.

With the availability of virtually unlimited bandwidth and lots of hosted options offering law firms the alternative to manage their business-critical applications in the Cloud, more and more firms are considering making a move to this new model. With the always-on, always-connected business model comes the challenge for law firms to manage their risk management and confidentiality requirements effectively. One of the key requirements is to ensure the firm’s information governance and confidentiality management practice is consistent across all of their systems. Frayman Group’s Compliguard Risk Management Platform provides API-based integration to a firm’s business-critical applications, including those hosted in the Cloud, such as NetDocuments.

Frayman and NetDocuments are working to build out-of-the-box integration between the hosted NetDocuments environment and Frayman’s risk management software, to be able to provide law firms with a seamless integrated experience. The first of these integrations will be between NetDocuments and Compliguard Protect, Frayman Group’s information governance and confidentiality platform. This integration will allow law firms to centrally manage document access rights in line with ethical walls and information barriers established in Compliguard Protect.

“We see increased momentum for SaaS based solutions in the law firm community and want to provide our customers with functionality and integration they need as they move to a hosted model,” said Alp Hug, Senior VP & Chief Marketing Officer at Frayman Group. “Our strategic alignment with NetDocuments will benefit our joint customers and will allow them to focus their efforts on improving their practices, as we focus on delivering the best integration possible between our technology platforms.”

“As the leader in SaaS based document management, we want to ensure a seamless user experience and full functionality to our install base,” said Alvin Tedjmulia, CTO, NetDocuments. “A strategic partnership with Frayman Group as leading risk management experts in legal is a natural evolution of our strategy to deliver a connected, full-featured environment for our joint law firm customers.”
