Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr Selects OnePlace Collaboration & Content Suite for Matter-Centric Document Management

--News Direct--

Intapp (NASDAQ: INTA), a leading provider of cloud-based software for the global professional and financial services industries, today announced that South African corporate law firm, Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr (CDH) has selected the OnePlace Collaboration & Content suite to deliver a collaborative, matter-centric document management solution, built on the firm’s Microsoft 365 platform investment.

CDH, an award-winning firm with offices in South Africa and Kenya, will use Intapp solutions in tandem with Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, Outlook, and Office to efficiently connect its most important assets: people, processes, and data.

Intapp collaboration and content solutions simplify collaboration, enhance compliance, automate governance, and help professional services firms deliver better client outcomes. As a part of this suite, CDH will use the following components:

  • Intapp Workspaces to extend Microsoft Teams with matter-centric collaboration, 360-degree insights, and automatic lifecycle management
  • Intapp Documents to deploy matter-centric document management capabilities, automatically filing emails and attachments to Microsoft SharePoint

“We wanted to remove the constraints experienced by a traditional document management system, as it was time to progress from our legacy on-premises document management system to a cloud-based solution that bridges the gap between the standard Microsoft applications our lawyers use daily and the advanced document management experience they expect,” said Ralph Hopkins, Head of Information Technology at CDH. “CDH continuously seeks advancing technologies in an effort to efficiently serve the evolving needs of our clients. By moving to Intapp solutions, we anticipate internal benefits like, increased productivity and enhanced knowledge management across all spheres of the firm.”

“We’re thrilled that Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr is looking at its cloud and data strategies holistically and chose the OnePlace Collaboration & Content suite to enhance collaboration, document management, and knowledge management across the firm,” said Alan McMillen, General Manager, Collaboration and Content Solutions, Intapp. “After implementation, they’ll be able to effectively manage all content within their Microsoft 365 platform and allow for future innovation like leveraging Microsoft’s advanced data governance capabilities and newer technologies like Viva.”

CDH will work with Cloud Essentials, a Microsoft Gold Partner with extensive experience delivering solutions to large clients, including law firms, banks, insurance companies, and government agencies, to oversee the transition to the Intapp suite. Cloud Essentials’ specialists will help build a modern vision for content management at the firm, including compliance advisory to ensure implementation is built on secure and compliant foundations across the Microsoft ecosystem.

“The team at Cloud Essentials brings its experience and passion to the process of wireframing and migration design, guiding detailed decision making and reducing risk at every step,” said Hopkins. “Following the migration, the ongoing partnership will ensure we get maximum value from the new solution, and realize the cost savings from decommissioning the legacy on-premises server estate.”
