Alberta-based 50 lawyer firm, McLeod Law has selected NetDocuments to be its document and email management platform. To address stringent document location requirements, the firm will use the NetDocuments ndFlexStore to physically store documents and emails in the cloud, in Microsoft Azure datacenters, in local on-premises stores, or in any combination while simultaneously leveraging NetDocuments’ global cloud platform.

The firm is said to have completed a thorough evaluation of several document management systems (DMS) technologies and preferred NetDocuments, particularly for its user-friendly UI.

“Beyond being a DMS, NetDocuments will make our lawyers more mobile, allowing them to access a clients’ entire file history at their fingertips,” says Managing Partner, Robin Lokhorst. “This will give us a strategic advantage when it comes to Court and being out-of-office. It will also help reduce time spent searching for precedents or clauses and will make us much more effective and efficient.”

According to a release out today (25 June), what also separated NetDocuments from competition is the 100% cloud infrastructure which allows for automated roll-outs of features and fixes without added expenses or internal resources and its interface with Microsoft Office 365, which McLeod Law already uses.
