• Clarion Solicitors selects Ascertus’ iManage Cloud

        • Clarion Solicitors has selected Ascertus to make the transition from its on-premises version of iManage Work document management system to the iManage Cloud. Ascertus will migrate 6.5 million documents to deliver iManage Cloud to 230 users.

          Ascertus provides document and information lifecycle management solutions to law firms and corporate legal departments in the UK and across Europe. Having chosen Ascertus for the transition, Leeds-based law firm, Clarion Solicitors, will receive IT cost savings and the highest levels of data security for the information residing in the document management system. 

          Clarion has noted legal experts working within sectors from healthcare to IT, energy, manufacturing, food and drink, media and the built environment. Based on the company’s well-devised best practice approach to cloud migrations, Ascertus has also undertaken a detailed Health Check of the IT environment at Clarion. 

          The iManage Cloud delivers market-leading Work Product Management as an on-demand, subscription service. It is designed to meet the needs of professional firms and their clients, delivering on performance, governance, and high availability. The solution fits in well with Clarion’s outsourced IT strategy, which is one of the main reasons for moving from an on-premises version of iManage Work to the iManage Cloud. Further reasons include the iManage Cloud offering Clarion excellent capability to provide a secure mobile work environment for staff in the future, as efficient and effective mobile working becoming indispensable for the firm.

          Dan Mitchell, Head of IT at Clarion Solicitors said, “Ascertus is iManage Cloud Partner of the Year, which speaks volumes of the organisation’s capabilities. On meeting with the team, it became abundantly clear that they had a good grasp of the iManage solution; their experience and expertise showed. They understood our requirement and suggested a migration approach that would be suitable for our environment.”

          “The security delivered by the platform is unquestionable. With iManage maintaining the platform, we won’t need to worry about product updates and patches (including Microsoft), which can be resource-intensive and difficult to stay on top of. We have reduced 10 servers that previously needed to be maintained, and simultaneously eliminated the cost of upskilling staff to manage this application. This move will be cost-neutral for us.”   

          Roy Russell, CEO of Ascertus Limited added, “it’s important to understand a firm’s IT infrastructure, prior to starting an implementation, as we can plan for and pre-empt issues before they turn into challenges.”
