announced that — one of the largest law firms in the Benelux— has selected as the Work Product Management system for its six offices across the region. iManage Work gives the firm a unified platform for managing documents, emails and other critical information in a single engagement file.
Just as importantly, iManage Work offers mobile solutions that enable busy professionals to access their most current work product from iOS, Android, Windows or other mobile devices. “Mobility is very important to us,” says Cees de Vos, CIO of AKD. “Besides a solid Dutch practice, we have a rapidly growing international client base, and our professionals are frequently abroad for client meetings. We need to be able to work from any location, on any device. iManage Work gives us that ability, enhancing our productivity.”
“Client expectations have evolved. Today’s professionals need to be responsive to client needs no matter where they are,” said Geoff Hornsby, iManage’s general manager, EMEA. “By deploying iManage Work, AKD is giving themselves the ability to provide this high level of service, regardless of location. For an international firm, this isn’t just a competitive advantage —it’s an absolute necessity. As the professional landscape continues to change, we’ll continue innovating and delivering solutions that work the way these new professionals want to get work done.”
iManage partner IRIS, one of Europe’s largest specialists in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), is assisting AKD with the implementation of iManage Work. The on-premises implementation is currently scheduled to begin in January 2017 and to go live in March 2017. iManage Work will be rolled out to all six AKD’s offices at the same time, and will have approximately 450 users.
