NetDocuments, the leading secure cloud-based content services platform for law firms, corporate legal teams and compliance departments, announced that UK specialist firm Magrath Sheldrick has implemented its document management system to support hybrid working and future proof the business in terms of flexibility, security and compliance.
The implementation was carried out by NetDocuments partner Peregrine Cloud.
Magrath Sheldrick LLP is one of the UK’s most successful business immigration practices and a major force in immigration and employment law. Its diverse client base includes some of the world’s leading businesses, private individuals, employers and senior executives.
Magrath Sheldrick selected NetDocuments as it is built in the cloud and provides a single source of truth for collaborating, managing, and sharing documents. Magrath Sheldrick now has full confidence that documents can be shared safely and securely between colleagues and clients, from any location.
“Being in the cloud gives us the flexibility to accommodate our staff anywhere,” explains Nick Doughty, IT Director, Magrath Sheldrick. “This is so important for supporting new ways of working bought on by the pandemic. We’re still in the planning stages, but the one absolute is that we’re not going to go back to five days a week in the office. NetDocuments has played, and will continue to play, a key role in supporting this.”
Since implementing NetDocuments the firm has seen instant ROI. Previously, Magrath Sheldrick had used an expensive third-party tool to encrypt emails and send large files, but now uses NetDocuments’ built-in secure link functionality. Using NetDocuments also ensures compliance, giving the firm the confidence that data is only stored for the time that it’s actually viable. This is key to complying with GDPR, particularly if the client requests the right to be forgotten.
“Our data is our most valuable asset, so we need confidence that is it managed responsibly and securely,” Doughty says. “From using NetDocuments, it’s clear our data is safeguarded and always going to be there when we need it. This has given us greater peace of mind while also ensuring we are compliant with regulations like GDPR.”
“As more and more legal firms move to a permanent hybrid working model, it’s vital they have the technology to enable staff to work seamlessly from any location,” said Andy Baldin, Vice President of International Business at NetDocuments. “We’re pleased to be working with Magrath Sheldrick to enable its staff to share documents and collaborate wherever they choose to work, without having to compromise on security.”
