User Spotlight: How an Irish Law Firm Benefits from the Partnership – SeeUnity was approached by HighQ on behalf of its client, McCann FitzGerald, an Irish law firm based in Dublin. It wanted a connector from its iManage document management system to the HighQ platform to facilitate the upload/download process of documents for its eDiscovery team.
The process at the time was time-consuming and manual. “There was just no easy way to do this in iManage,” recalls Conor Clarkson, McCann FitzGerald IT Security Systems Engineer. “Also, we wanted to remove documents as soon as they were no longer needed to keep storage costs in HighQ to a minimum.”
It was in a routine meeting with the firm and SeeUnity that the question, “How is the metadata going to be removed from documents before uploading into HighQ?” was raised. During the ensuing discussions, Conor indicated that the firm was using cleanDocs to manage metadata cleaning for its outgoing email attachments. Using the SeeUnity connector with in-built cleanDocs integration, the firm was able to have documents automatically scrubbed of metadata as they moved from iManage to HighQ.
The user doesn’t have to make cleaning choices since it is based on pre-set policies. This ensures maximum security without impacting productivity. This was the first SeeUnity deployment for this particular integration, but according to Conor, it all went smoothly and streamlined the process for the firm significantly.
“It was obvious to me that Echo needed to integrate with cleanDocs when more and more clients started asking about control and governance over their documents. Metadata cleaning was becoming more than a nice-to-have value add. The market was increasingly aware of the dangers of metadata and the risk of data leaks.”
