With three offices in Germany and nearly 300 employees in total, Pöllath + Partners has vast amounts of continually increasing digital data to manage, comprising mostly of office documents and emails. “The organizational structuring and management of this data became more and more complex and time consuming”, comments Marcus Märthesheimer, IT manager at Pöllath + Partners. “Therefore, we needed a suitable solution that also covers compliance issues. We were looking for a solution that was able to cover our rules of data protection and also allow secure external access. In addition to this, another requirement was the seamless integration into our existing workflows without causing major stumbling blocks in the process.”

Choosing for the number 1 document management system for legal

iManage Work offers the most comprehensive suite of information management applications on a single, common platform and is used by more than 1,500 law firms worldwide, including 75 of the top 100 global law firms. In a market review iManage Work appeared to meet Pöllath + Partners’ requirements best. Märthesheimer comments: “It showed to be an established solution, especially in the legal market within Europe. After an RfP process, we specifically chose IRIS as an implementation partner. They proved to have extensive knowledge of iManage Work itself, and they have gained a lot of experience in the implementation of iManage Work within the legal market.”

Choosing the right implementation partner for iManage
