iManageiManage, the company dedicated to transforming how professionals work, today announced that Stone King – a full practice law firm specializing in the education and charity sectors and one of the UK’s top 200 law firms – has selected iManage for its document and email management system to deliver the industry’s leading Work Product Management capabilities to its professionals, all in the iManage Cloud.

The firm, which has long taken a progressive, forward-thinking approach to IT, saw an investment in iManage Cloud as a way to ensure it had a world-class document and email management system that aligned with the firm’s cloud-first IT strategy. Previously, the firm had been using a matter management system that had limitations around managing emails and sharing documents.

“Having efficient systems for managing emails and documents and for securely sharing our documents with clients is extremely important for our people, so having the appropriate core IT systems in place is critical,” said Tim Roche, Head of IT, Stone King. “We chose iManage because it would integrate seamlessly with our existing email system and other productivity tools, meaning that we can share content internally and with clients in a quick, easy and secure way. Furthermore, we are moving away from paper-based processes and with the firm adopting a more agile way of working across its UK offices, having iManage will underpin our aims in these areas.”

With iManage Cloud, Stone King will receive access to iManage Work for document and email management and iManage Share for fast and secure sharing of files. Additionally, iManage Mobility will provide the firm anytime, anywhere access to critical files from any device. iManage partner Phoenix Business Solutions is assisting Stone King with its implementation with plans to roll out the solution across the entire firm in early 2018.

“Busy legal professionals deal with hundreds of emails, documents and attachments every day,” said Geoff Hornsby, General Manager, EMEA, iManage. “Leading firms are looking for solutions that fully organize both documents and client communications by client and matter to streamline processes that make their lives easier.”

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
