NetDocuments, the leading cloud-based content management platform for law firms and corporate legal and compliance departments, announced today that Vancouver-based Harper Grey, one of the leading regional law firms in Western Canada, has selected NetDocuments as a foundation for the firm’s transformation to a more agile and innovative delivery of legal services.
The firm chose the secure, localized, cloud-based NetDocuments platform including its ndMail predictive email solution after extensive competitive review and evaluation of other legal document management providers. The addition of Harper Grey underscores NetDocuments’ momentum in Canada.
The NetDocuments multi-tenanted platform offers a single global instance of software to all NetDocuments customers and enables Harper Grey to offer a future-focused, content management solution leveraging non-disruptive technology upgrades across the platform globally. “We are harnessing the cloud-based SaaS model to achieve data redundancy and ‘always on’ access to our critical services,” noted Dharam Dheensaw, Chief Information Officer, Harper Grey.
“We truly embraced NetDocuments as a business partner throughout the selection process and are pleased to join the NetDocuments family while looking forward to evolving and operating at the leading-edge of innovation. This highly sophisticated and advanced cloud technology fosters a transparent client experience through enhanced collaboration tools and a flexible and intuitive end user experience. The transition to NetDocuments not only improves our internal document and filing efficiencies, but also enables the firm to move from a static document repository, to a dynamic, feature-rich knowledge management solution that enables us to work more efficiently, and deliver first-rate legal services to our clients,” commented Dheensaw.
Harper Grey will utilize ndFlexStore to store its data in Canada. NetDocuments' ndFlexStore supports any combination of global, regional, and private storage under a "single library" concept. This permits any user, anywhere worldwide to search, navigate, and access any document globally and transparently, subject only to the security and ethical wall rights regardless of the data storage location.
According to Dheensaw, the firm is committed to protecting and securing client documents with the utmost care and precaution: “The NetDocuments partnership with Microsoft Azure via the ndFlexStore provides us with a Canadian-based cloud storage option, and their ISO 27001, 27018, and 27017 certifications ensure the highest level of data encryption and document-level security.”
Beyond market leading security and collaboration features, the firm’s decision to choose the NetDocuments cloud platform was further validated by strong integrations with Harper Grey’s existing core systems, creating a holistic synergy involving AI-based automation and workflows.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Harper Grey into our group of valued customers and are seeing continued momentum as firms both large and small reap the benefits of the NetDocuments modern cloud platform,” said Josh Baxter, NetDocuments’ President & COO. “Innovative, creative firms like Harper Grey are an ideal fit for NetDocuments since it’s our cloud-fueled innovation that enables delivery of single instance, future-focused content management platform.”
