Legal IT Newswire: Swift Currie Selects NetDocuments Cloud Platform
NetDocuments, the leading secure cloud-based content services platform for law firms, corporate legal teams and compliance departments, today announced that Swift Currie, a 150+ attorney, nationally recognized litigation firm, has selected NetDocuments as its secure cloud-based content services platform. The firm, with offices in Georgia and Alabama, will transition to the cloud-based integrated platform for document and email management.
Swift Currie, which is moving to NetDocuments from its existing iManage document management system (DMS), previously engaged Affinity Consulting Group to conduct a comprehensive Practice Analysis including recommendations to explore NetDocuments for cloud-based document and email management.
“Based on our conversations with firm staff and leadership, we quickly realized that the biggest pain point among most, if not all of the firm members, was constantly asking “where is it?” when it came to documents and content overall,” stated Steve Best, Partner, Affinity Consulting Group. “The most compelling aspects of NetDocuments for Swift Currie included improved workflow, ease of access, and streamlining how documents and emails are stored. The firm is focused on modernizing an aging technology infrastructure to prepare for future growth and the NetDocuments cloud platform will help deliver.”
Swift Currie, having recently undergone major firm growth, was challenged with the limited capabilities of its existing DMS. The needs of the firm dictated access anytime, anywhere, on any device, an intuitive design and user interface as well as seamless integrations with existing financial and practice management applications.
“We are very excited to have Swift Currie join NetDocuments and provide a vastly improved and highly functioning document management experience, ideally positioned to accommodate future firm growth” stated Shelby Crotty, senior account executive at NetDocuments.
According to Wallace Saunders, Swift Currie’s Director, IT, a key factor in selecting NetDocuments was the platform’s ability to handle the ever-increasing cyber-security requirements for the protection of data, a critical component firm clients expect and require as more and more data and security breaches occur.
“Cloud migration as well as off-loading some of the security requirements to a cloud-based provider like NetDocuments was an important focal point for us,” added Saunders. “The native, cloud only delivery is one of the key drivers of our IT initiatives going forward.”
Saunders is a firm believer that the NetDocuments platform will deliver much more than “just” DMS. “From integrating with our time and billing system, practice management system and providing redundant disaster recovery functions as well as filling the role of access anywhere, anytime on any device – we expect NetDocuments to be one of the cornerstones of the firm’s technology strategies both now and for the foreseeable future.”
