Legal IT Newswire: NetDocuments Demand Surges in Latin America
Salt Lake City, UT – January 30, 2020 – NetDocuments, the leading secure cloud-based content services platform for law firms, corporate legal teams, and compliance departments, today announced unprecedented growth in 2019 across South/Central America, Brazil, and the Caribbean including some of the largest firms in Mexico, Ecuador, Columbia, Chile, and several leading firms in Brazil.
NetDocuments’ acceleration in LATAM is attributed to a variety of factors including a dedicated account management team and the availability of the most modern, mature, and trusted cloud platform best suited to deliver security, mobility, and productivity tools in high demand by regional firms. In addition, the initiation of a partnership/sponsorship arrangement with Lex Mundi, the world’s leading network of independent law firms, has strengthened ties with law firms across the region and globe.
Law firms are replacing existing document management systems with NetDocuments as a way to ‘future proof’ their technology. Platform security, governance, productivity, and collaboration across foreign office networks are critical to delivering exceptional client service.
“The NetDocuments cloud platform provides firm-wide access to the latest security and productivity tools,” stated Bárbara Gondim da Rocha, Head of Knowledge Management and Innovation at Rocha, Marinho E Sales, a leading corporate and litigation law firm with 12 offices and 900 legal professionals throughout Brazil. “Ease of use and user adoption are critical to our ability to best serve our clients with leading edge technology,” added Ms. da Rocha, whose firm purchased NetDocuments in August 2019.
Key metrics for NetDocuments’ unprecedented 2019 growth in South/Central America, Brazil, and the Caribbean include:
- Partner network power: Every NetDocuments customer engagement and success in 2019 involved the NetDocuments partner network. Overall, 15 different partner companies assisted in some or all of the sales and implementation processes.
- Cloud growth: NetDocuments added 3,200 new legal professionals within law firms, corporate legal departments, and organizations from other industries representing 13 different countries across the region.
- Competitive switch-outs: Many of the new customer deals displaced incumbent competitors including iManage, OpenText, Worldox, and Microsoft SharePoint.
- Lex Mundi partnership: NetDocuments is now a Gold Sponsor and partner of the Lex Mundi global law firm network, a critical organization for many LATAM and other leading firms around the world. Within the first few months of the partnership, several Lex Mundi member firms opted to select and deploy NetDocuments.
“It is extremely rewarding to see the explosive growth of our customer community across Central/Latin America, Brazil, and the Caribbean as firms recognize the value and competitive advantages that a modern and secure cloud platform provides,” stated Marriott Murdock, Senior Director for Latin America at NetDocuments. “2019 was a banner year for NetDocuments in the region, largely due to our strong relationships with established sales and implementation partners.
