NetDocuments, the leading secure multi-tenant cloud-based content services and productivity platform for law firms, corporate legal teams and business organizations, has today announced that Forsters LLP has gone live with its NetDocuments Document Management System (DMS) implementation.
Forsters is one of London’s leading real estate and private wealth law firms, and the company was recently recognised in The Times’ Best Law Firms 2021 listings. The implementation of NetDocuments, will provide Forsters’ 400+ staff with a secure cloud platform to manage, share and discover electronic files.
The new DMS is part of Forsters’ ongoing IT transformation and strategy to move more services to the cloud, which saw NetDocuments win a competitive evaluation against iManage. As a true-cloud platform, NetDocuments provides Forsters with the around-the-clock availability and support it requires – enabling the law firms’ employees to securely access their documents at any time and from any location. In addition, NetDocuments’ native integration with Microsoft Office365 allows it to be used within familiar Office365 applications, which has quickly boosted user adoption.
Verlata Consulting, a certified NetDocuments partner, successfully led the remote implementation of NetDocuments during the UK COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. Within the first week of the implementation of NetDocuments, Forsters has been able to add 26,773 documents and 46,620 emails to the new DMS.
“NetDocuments’ robust enterprise search and machine assisted filing means our employees can find the information they are looking for in a matter of seconds. In addition, the high-levels of security provided by NetDocuments gives us peace of mind that documents are being shared safely,” commented Anthony Stables, CIO at Forsters LLP. “Both Verlata and NetDocuments have been extremely supportive during the implementation, and we are confident that we now have a cloud document management platform that will scale with our business needs.”
Jason Mills, Director at Verlata said “COVID-19 certainly introduced some additional challenges in the project, especially as we were working from a different time zone, but the NetDocuments true-cloud platform, coupled with the fully engaged Forsters team meant we were able to go live and get fantastic adoption across the firm from day 1”.
Guy Phillips, Vice President of International Business at NetDocuments added, “Legal firms can find themselves spending significant amounts of money running and maintaining on-premises legacy technology. Forsters’ implementation of NetDocuments is a fantastic example of how a true-cloud platform can enable firms to become more agile, productive and secure.”
