SeeUnity Simplifies Migration to iManage Cloud – The original document management system for Burford was NetDocuments. While NetDocuments had served Burford well in its early years, Burford’s tremendous growth and increased scale required a more robust document management system. Features Burford was seeking included automated workspace creation using standard folder templates, synching of workspace metadata from a Salesforce database, better integration of Office products, more powerful and precise searching in multiple languages, full compatibility with all document types, better performance, integrated OCR capabilities, better file-sharing capabilities, world-class security, and mobile access.
Since Burford doesn’t host or maintain servers as a matter of policy, they selected iManage Cloud rather than an on-premise solution. Duff & Phelps was brought in to help with the deployment of the migration. They suggested SeeUnity’s Velocity Content Migration, as it is the only migration solution available that can handle a NetDocuments to iManage Cloud migration and move existing workspace content over with the preserved folder structures Burford required.
SeeUnity’s Velocity Solution provided accessibility during the process through Delta runs with less downtime. The migration organized documents with a matter-centric system to preserve workspace structures, folders, original document numbers, and project ID’s. Migration templates were also configurable and reusable, with out-of-the-box C# scripting for custom requirements.
“Given the much higher capabilities and lower risk, we chose SeeUnity’s Velocity Product as our top choice. It had all the functionality desired, the ability to migrate whole ND workspaces and SharePoint structures directly to iManage Cloud. Additionally, the ability to sync, allowing for a working migration, substantially mitigated the risk of productivity disruption to our team.”
