Irish commercial property legal services provider, OCWM Law, has deployed the iManage Cloud document and email management solution. Ascertus is the implementation partner selected by the Dublin-based firm.

A young and growing law firm, OCWM Law’s decision to implement iManage Cloud is underpinned by a ‘cloud-only’ strategy for technology adoption. Explaining the firm’s rationale, Philip O’Connor, Managing Partner, at OCWM Law, said, “In this day and age, given how reliable and secure cloud technology is, we don’t need to invest in large server rooms and hardware to deploy business-critical applications. Using a document management-related analogy, our approach to the cloud is very similar to going paper-less – we want to be server-less.”

OCWM Law chose Ascertus for its reputation in Ireland for implementing iManage solutions. Aoife Cullen, Office Manager at OCWM Law, added, “From speaking to other iManage and Ascertus customers in Ireland, we felt confident of our decision to invest in these two organisations. Implementation of iManage Cloud has been painless. Ascertus and our IT service provider worked collaboratively to deliver the solution to the firm. Our involvement was only in the initial design stages to decide on things like policies for file naming and matter workspaces in the application. It could not have gone smoother.”

“Cloud technology gives growing law firms the ability to deploy the same business applications as the bigger players,” Jon Wainwright, Sales and Marketing Director of Ascertus Limited, commented. “OCWM Law’s cloud-only strategy is well thought through and will deliver significant business advantage to the firm.”
