iManage, 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.”
