London, U.K. – 27 February 2018 – iManage, the company dedicated to transforming how professionals work, has awarded Ascertus Limited the accolade of ‘Cloud Evangelist & Deployment Pioneer’ for 2017 in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Ascertus beat stiff competition from iManage partners across the region to win this title. Ascertus provides information and document lifecycle management solutions to professional services organisations and corporate legal departments.
Ascertus was bestowed this honour following an independent performance evaluation of all partners across the EMEA region by iManage. The company won this award for helping the most iManage Work clients to successfully adopt iManage Cloud and for rapid implementations of the solution, supported by strong technical knowledge of cloud technologies. Last, but not least, with this award, iManage recognises Ascertus’ active engagement with the company to help drive continuous service improvements.
Elaborating on the company’s rationale for awarding this tribute to Ascertus, Joe Combs, EMEA Partner Director, iManage, said, “Ascertus is by far one of our most proactive partners in EMEA. Sound technical knowledge and expertise combined with a solutions‐led approach is enabling the firm to deliver iManage to customers in a way that delivers business value to them. This is a well‐deserved award.”
iManage Cloud has enabled Ascertus to provide this document and email management system to customers at a lower price point of course, but more crucially removed the burden of infrastructure maintenance for law firms of all sizes and corporate legal departments alike. Assured of security and business continuity – alongside the ability to scale – a cloud implementation of iManage Work is fast becoming the preferred option for law firms and in‐house legal departments.
“We are seeing a definite shift in the market towards the cloud for technology adoption. However, for organisations to truly optimise the benefits of this technology, the quality of implementation is important – or else the advantages can be negated. We are very mindful of this, and hence take a consultancy‐led approach to deployment with all our customers,” Jon Wainwright, Sales and Marketing Director at Ascertus Limited commented.
“We take a collaborative approach to business with both our clients and technology partners. Clearly this is bearing fruit, we are delighted with this award – it’s definitely a feather in our cap. We look forward to an ever stronger and more meaningful partnership with iManage for the long term,” Wainwright added.
Ascertus is continuously making significant investments in staffing and resourcing including the account management, support and technical teams. In 2017, the company doubled the number of employees over the previous year.
