Complex Migration Simplified, Saving Time and Money – As a long time eDOCS customer, Thompson, Coe, Cousins & Irons, LLP (Thompson Coe) was looking to mature their DM footprint and move to a cloud-based solution. Growth initiatives to remain innovative and competitive called for a cutting-edge solution.
There was concern about how disruptive this project would be while moving processes to the cloud. Thompson Coe has offices nation wide, adding to the complexity of the migration. It was essential for employees to be able to keep up, for example, with the steady stream of corporate audit letters, making information governance and security high priorities. In order to save time, money, and to maintain productivity, it was decided that employees would need to be able to continue working during the migration process if possible.
Overall cost and being able to address latency issues related to the on-premise system were important considerations for the firm.
Some of the key requirements included being able to bring over existing eDOCS document ID numbers, permissions, and other pertinent metadata. Older, unnecessary eDOCS files needed to be archived.
SeeUnity’s Velocity Solution saved time by migrating content directly to iManage cloud, giving employees the ability to be productive and continue working during the migration. The feature-rich product reduced cost and complexity, increased user adoption with familiar folder structures in a new environment, and performed a clean-up and archiving of old files.
“Other migration tools exist but are not sophisticated enough to move content with this amount of detail. We couldn’t have done it without SeeUnity’s Velocity tool. There is no alternative.”
