From Legal Futures’ Associate iManage.
iManage, the company dedicated to transforming how professionals work, today announced that McCormick Barstow LLP – a top ranked law firm with five offices nationwide and a long-established presence in California’s Central Valley – has selected iManage Cloud to meet its current and future needs for Work Product Management.
As a long-time iManage on-premises customer, the firm modernized its document and email management system by moving to iManage Cloud. With iManage Cloud, the firm can take advantage of all the benefits of the industry’s leading Work Product Management solution, while avoiding the costs related to purchasing and maintaining on-premises computer servers and other IT infrastructure. iManage Cloud also simplifies Work Product Management IT administration for the firm by installing new functionality and security updates automatically.
In addition, iManage Cloud is fully integrated with iManage advanced security applications – iManage Security Policy Manager and iManage Threat Manager. This tight integration makes it easier for McCormick Barstow to use these powerful security applications to implement need-to-know security policies, protect sensitive client information from both external and internal threat actors, manage ethical walls and meet client security audit requests.
“We are always looking for ways to improve security and efficiencies,” said Mitchell Herbert, Director of Information Technology, McCormick Barstow. “Moving to iManage Cloud allows us to focus more on strategic value and less on infrastructure. iManage Cloud gives us seamlessly integrated records, documents and governance solutions that enable us to focus more effectively on what matters and serving our clients.”
iManage’s comprehensive approach to document and email management, security and governance helps McCormick Barstow work smarter and provides a proactive approach to protecting client data. Adding iManage Records Manager, the firm can set governance policies, including trigger events, retention periods and disposition rules, as well as monitor and enforce compliance on electronic and physical records.
“We see the value in what iManage is doing by creating a single, integrated platform that manages all of our work product and keeps it secure and governed,” said Ken Baldwin, Partner, Management Committee Chair, McCormick Barstow. “Investing in iManage demonstrates to our staff and clients the firm’s deep commitment to providing a real productivity tool while respecting complex data security requirements. iManage has a visionary approach to work product management and it just makes sense to continue partnering with iManage.”
iManage partner Cornerstone IT is assisting with the firm’s implementation of iManage Cloud and iManage’s security and governance products. Cornerstone IT was chosen for its personal consulting approach and project experience with iManage.
“Professional services firms that are looking to the cloud to gain agility and lower costs are quickly recognizing the benefits of a multi-application Work Product Management platform,” said Dan Carmel, Chief Marketing Officer, iManage. “With iManage, McCormick Barstow is gaining a complete platform to work and collaborate more efficiently, secure their privileged data and protect it from phishing and other security threats, enabling them to transform the way they do business so they can compete more effectively in today’s marketplace.”
