LONDON, Oct. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — I manage, the company dedicated to Making Knowledge Work™, announced today that DWF – a UK-based global leader in integrated legal and business services – has selected iManage Cloud as its secure intelligent document and email platform – Management and cooperation decided. In live operation, users in the company’s 30 branches benefit from a secure, collaborative and modern working environment.
Prior to making the decision to move to iManage Cloud, DWF was a long-time iManage Work, On-Premises customer and was an early adopter of iManage Cloud in Australia. Due to the unprecedented change in work practices and challenges brought on by the pandemic – including remote working, increased cybersecurity burden and competition for legal professionals – the decision was made to undergo a comprehensive review of the business and technology needs of the company’s new post-pandemic environment .
After an extensive study of document management systems available on the market and a rigorous solution review process, DWF chose iManage Cloud primarily for its high security standards, proven scalability, performance, and native integration with Microsoft Office 365 and Teams—all critical requirements for hybrid working today and in the future.
“Our decision to use iManage Cloud is an important and long-term decision for our company,” said Daniel Pollick, CIO at DWF. “We are investing in Microsoft technology – it underpins our integrated service model and is the interface of choice for our attorneys. iManage gives us the best combination of legally-aligned user experience, security, and seamless integration we need to optimize our investment in Microsoft while leveraging the strengths of iManage to improve our information governance across the enterprise.”
Pollick continued, “We look forward to working with Morae, our iManage implementation partner, who will support us every step of the way to help us migrate to iManage Cloud and optimize the solution for our needs.”
David Malkinson, Senior Managing Director at Morae, commented, “For an organization to achieve maximum value, the document management system must integrate seamlessly with the organization’s ‘engagement and insight’ systems. This provides users with modern collaboration capabilities, access to knowledge resources, information security, and the ability to make truly data-driven decisions. We’re excited to provide our expertise to help DWF achieve all of this and more. iManage cloud migration and Microsoft integration are areas in which we have extensive experience, having delivered hundreds of successful projects, including for some of the largest and most complex in the legal industry.”
Today over 90% of the UK’s largest law firms use iManage, including 100% of the Magic Circle. Over 50% of all iManage customers are now in the cloud.
Geoff Hornsby, iManage General Manager EMEA, stated: “We understand law firm operations – how lawyers work, what features they need to eliminate friction in their day-to-day processes and maintain high levels of productivity and customer service. Enterprise cybersecurity needs are now integrated into our solution alongside their compliance, risk and governance obligations. Our strategic partnership with Microsoft and our future product roadmaps will continue to enrich all of these areas and more. We are pleased that DWF is moving to iManage Cloud and we look forward to continuing our longstanding relationship with the company.”
