IRIS Nederland, a specialist in providing solutions for content services and workflow automation for knowledge professionals, has been selected by CMS Austria to upgrade its document management system (DMS) to iManage Work 10 in the Cloud.

Choosing for the cloud-based document management

CMS Austria works closely together with other CMS offices since many of their mandates are international mandates where lawyers from different jurisdictions are collaborating on the same document. The choice of CMS to embrace iManage Work as their document and email management solution empowers their lawyers to collaborate securely from anywhere, so lawyers can work together to achieve common goals.

Improving knowledge management with iManage Cloud

iManage will also be of great help to develop CMS’ internal knowledge management further. Knowledge is their key factor and differentiator. Powerful and personalized search tools will enable lawyers to discover the best knowledge and content no matter where it’s stored, and reuse best practices, all with a single search.

Thomas Kroupa, head of IT added: ‘‘We started our first conversation with IRIS more or less on a blank page. However once we started discussing, the project gained momentum. We had a really good experience with our account manager Ralph Willems. The onboarding and project management was really effective. From a technical point of view, I must say that we were supported with a lot of information about what has to be prepared, what has to be requested and what has to be researched. Resulting in that we were really well prepared for the workshops in the next phase. Up until now, the overall experience working with IRIS was fruitful. We are looking forward to have the solution implemented and to build a long lasting relationship with IRIS.’’

Transitioning to the iManage Cloud with IRIS


CMS’ transition to iManage Work is one of many recent iManage projects that IRIS has delivered over the lock-down period, as firms of various sizes seek to improve their working practices by adopting and taking advantage of what legal technology has to offer. Our clear understanding of how modern law firms want to work combined with strategic partnerships with leading technology providers makes us the perfect partner to support law firms in their digital transformation journey.

IRIS Nederland’s Sales Director Martijn Tekelenburg, added: “It is our pleasure to help yet another CMS firm in their Digital Transformation. After implementing iManage at the Dutch and German CMS member firms, we are honoured to support CMS Austria as well. For organizations that run on knowledge, iManage Work is indispensable. With a combination of automation, powerful search, better visibility, and collaboration, iManage empowers knowledge workers to deliver better business outcomes.’’
