This week, FileTrail announced its partnership with Tikit- the leading global provider of legal software solutions. The result is a strategic partnership between their two areas of expertise to create innovative and complete solutions for their client base. Today law firms of every size can deploy a holistic solution to the complete document life cycle ecosystem.
The legal services market is fluctuating at an increasing rate, and attorneys are moving to other firms in an effort to advance their careers or achieve a better work/life balance. In this environment, many firms’ back-office operations are spending more resources performing file transfers and returning files to clients—processes that are complex, fraught with risk, and very expensive.
As Shook researched options for replacing LegalKey, it aimed to find a modern records management platform that not only worked with NetDocuments, but that also addressed its complex information governance requirements. In FileTrail the firm found a holistic solution that integrates with NetDocuments, as well as automates the execution of all IG policies throughout both the RM and DM repositories.
Law firms understand the importance of investing in policies and procedures to determine to manage the vast amounts of information in their possession. However, many firms run into problems when it comes to executing their information governance (IG) policies due to high costs and complexity. Inconsistent application of IG policies is a major industry concern that puts law firms everywhere at significant risk.
Starting May 25, 2018, organisations that collect and store data on citizens in European Union (EU) countries must begin complying with strict new rules around protecting customer data. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to all organisations – regardless of their location – if they’re processing or storing personal data of EU data subjects.
This month, leading industry publication Law Technology Today invited FileTrail to share its insights about information governance (IG). As a leader in IG software automation, FileTrail’s team have a lot to say on this topic.
As the deadline for GDPR implementation edges closer, discussions about compliance are mostly focused on how to ensure organizations have permission to use the data they’re collecting and processing. This makes sense in the light of today’s data-driven world, in which seemingly every part of our digital lives is tracked and stored. According to Gartner, data is growing 40-60% year over year.
FileTrail will be in L.A. on April 11 as part of our educational Roadshow Series in partnership with the International Legal Technology Association. The series, entitled “An Information Governance Policy Isn’t Enough – Strategies for Execution and Compliance,” will be making stops in five cities across the U.S., including Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Atlanta.
One of the highlights for FileTrail at the recent ndElevate EMEA conference in London was the presentation by Leonard Johnson, SVP of Product & Partnerships at NetDocuments. We’ve received a lot of questions about the screenshot that Leonard shared during his presentation – a preview of the FileTrail tab feature in NetDocuments, which will be available in early 2019 (updated below):
