The legal technology community continues to evolve as technology becomes more and more adept at conforming to the specific requirements of law firms and their clients worldwide. The norm has shifted to the cloud as education about the benefits is more prevalent and undisputable. For many years, the idea of storing confidential client data in the cloud was a myth. Times have changed dramatically, and firms who resist moving to the cloud today will find themselves left behind.
Salt Lake City, UT – Bullivant Houser Bailey PC has chosen NetDocuments to replace iManage for their document and email management system as the firm continues to adapt to technology demands for their growing client base. The firm relies on leading technology to support accelerating growth, so the challenge was to replace their on-premises document management system and find a more scalable solution that would allow them to meet increasing client demands for security, collaboration, and firm-wide productivity. An extensive due diligence process concluded that NetDocuments’ modern, cloud-based platform was the solution that would keep the firm on the cutting edge of technology, while continuing to offer world class service to their client base.

The NetDocuments team is in Chicago this week to participate in the 2015 ABA Techshow and is excited to report what the new trends, topics, and overall buzz are this year surrounding legal tech. The sessions focused heavily on cloud security, data protection, virtual practice, and ethical obligations surrounding new and developing technology. The one constant about legal technology is that it evolves year-over-year, which only validates the obligations that firms have to stay current on what clients are expecting in their representations. What we heard from session presenters, and our friends who stopped by the booth, is that there are growing expectations for law firms to upgrade and maintain technology to remain compliant with changing client demands. Below are some of the topics that were discussed today:
Salt Lake City, UT - NetDocuments has just released its marketplace highlighting third-party software and plug-ins that integrate with the leading cloud-based document and email management service.
“The technology ecosystem within a firm comprises many components and applications, and it just makes sense to have them all in one place, accessible to our partners, customers, and development community,” Travis Reed, Technology Partnership Manager, stated. “And with the rapid increase in demand to build integrations with NetDocuments, we needed a scalable solution and location for our customers, partner, and developer communities to turn to.” NetDocuments currently has over 30 technology partners who have integrated dozens of applications and add-ons to NetDocuments core document management service, mobile app, and email management components.
Oftentimes, we forget to value time as we do other goods and services. It is easy to put a cost on technology, but more difficult to monetize the cost that technology saves us in terms of time and productivity. On the same note, it is also difficult to determine how much money we have lost fumbling through inadequate or outdated technology to accomplish our tasks throughout the day.
The explosion of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) in law firms is creating an environment where policies and procedures need to be adjusted in order to remain compliant and secure. Maintaining an information governance strategy is complicated enough, and throwing in mobile devices creates a new dynamic for content management. For that reason, it is important to consider 3 key aspects of mobile device management (MDM) in terms of how your organization considers audits, policies, and security:
Salt Lake City, UT - NetDocuments, the leader in cloud-based document and email management, today announced that Kraft Kennedy has joined their channel partner program to provide clients a premier product in modern, cloud-based document and email management. This new partnership reflects a mutual opportunity to complement Kraft Kennedy’s strategy for providing clients and the legal community with the most innovative solutions on the market.
User adoption of firm-wide technology is always a challenge but is extremely important. From an information governance, knowledge transfer, and compliance standpoint, it’s critical that people across the firm are adhering to the policies to secure, store, access, and collaborate with content and data. The degree a firm achieves adoption depends on several core components:
