Ascertus solution to enable OGR Stock Denton to compete with larger Central London firms, attract top talent
London, U.K., 20 November 2018 – North London-based commercial law firm, OGR Stock Denton, has successfully gone live on industry leading email and document management solution, iManage Cloud, with Ascertus Limited as the implementation partner. Ascertus has helped this growing law firm deploy iManage Cloud to establish a modern work environment to compete with some of the larger central London legal services providers. iManage Cloud is available to 45 users and will seamlessly scale in the cloud as the business expands. Ascertus provides document and information lifecycle management solutions, running on-premises, in the Cloud, or in a hybrid environment, to law firms in the UK and across Europe.
“We may be smaller in size to some of the central London-based law firms, but when it comes to the calibre of the work we do, we are certainly at par,” Robert Rosenberg, Partner at OGR Stock Denton, explained. “Documents and emails are the most important tools for our fee earners and it’s crucial that we provide our lawyers with productivity enhancing applications so that they can focus on delivering superior quality service to clients. A modern work environment is also essential to attracting the top talent in the industry. iManage Work is the best document management solution in the industry, and so we have invested in it.”
OGR Stock Denton chose to deploy iManage Cloud for its cost-effectiveness, scalability, security, vendor maintenance and 24×7 availability.
With over 13 years’ experience of partnering with iManage alongside a skilled team of consultants, project managers and support staff, Ascertus offers a full suite of professional services. This ensured that the implementation of iManage Cloud was very smooth. Rosenberg commented, “The quality of implementation can make or break a project. Ascertus has an outstanding track record for timely and successful implementations in the industry, which is why we chose them. They are very knowledgeable about iManage and the ecosystem of solutions that surround it. Ascertus has delivered a system that is well tailored to our needs. But it’s the attention to detail to customer service that exceeded our expectations. The Ascertus team walked the floors for two days, answering questions and ensuring that users were comfortable using the system. This has had a very positive impact on the system’s adoption in the firm.”
OGR Stock Denton provides property, family, private client dispute resolution, employment, company and commercial and international legal services across numerous sectors including manufacturing, technology, retail and fashion and healthcare to name a few.
Rosenberg added, “We are an ambitious law firm delivering serious legal work to clients, but at the same time, we recognise the importance of a good work-life balance for our employees. iManage Cloud is facilitating flexible working in the firm.”
Through iManage Work in the cloud, fee earners are able to safely and securely access case documents from anywhere, at any time and via any device. Additionally, Ascertus has integrated template management software, LawPro, with iManage Work for the firm. Fee earners are benefiting from the functionality that LawPro offers while still maintaining a central repository of all matter-related documents in iManage Work.
“This project has been a very satisfying and rewarding experience for us,” Jon Wainwright, Sales Director at Ascertus Limited, said. “OGR Stock Denton is forward thinking in its approach to technology adoption and understand the role that good IT solutions and a caring implementation partner can play in helping the organisation achieve its business objectives. We are looking forward to a long and mutually fulfilling partnership as we support the firm through its growth.”
