LegalRM adopts Microsoft Azure for its Cloud hosting

CIO Forum, LegalWeek, New York and London 29th January 2019 – LegalRM Limited, announces new cloud hosting of its iCompli Records Management and Information Governance platform on Microsoft Azure, with specific cloud solutions for each region, to ensure a stronger information governance strategy.

Chris Giles, Founder and CEO of LegalRM, stated at LegalWeek 2019 in New York:
“We are delighted to adopt Microsoft Azure as the hosting service for our market leading, secure, cloudbased, records management and information governance platform for law firms. Apart from the obvious security, stability and scalability that the Azure platform gives our clients, we are most excited by the cloud to cloud partnership opportunities we can now bring to bear.

Having delivered leading records management solutions for law firms for over 15 years, including 4 of the top 10 global firms; we see integrating our flagship records management system, iCompli, directly within leading document management and compliance platforms, as essential to managing and delivering a total information governance solution to forward thinking law firms, corporate legal teams and other professional organizations.”

LegalRM assists law firms to implement and leverage their records management solutions, either in specific cloud solutions for each region; or on-premises. iCompli integrates seamlessly and thus provides a single point of control, for both physical and electronic records—all through the latest and familiar workspace views in our partner’s products. Our latest, even stronger partnerships help customers adopt an end to end information governance strategy, directly within their document and records management platforms; as part of their drive to comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and achieve business transformation.

Initially there will be two regional hubs for compliance purposes: one in the US for North American clients; and one in the UK for European based clients. These hubs are expected to grow and prosper, based on client demand, paving the way for more expansion.
So many firms are migrating from LegalKEY and ARM legacy records management systems, due to the limited future roadmap of those applications. Others are looking to migrate from their current records system for operational or even strategic reasons; such as a need to create a joined-up approach to their information governance; streamline business processes; or to accelerate their business transformation achievements.

iCompli from LegalRM, further leverages the benefits of firms’ investment in their document management systems, with more comprehensive information management capabilities, as a standalone application, or through the latest and familiar workspace views, from DM providers.
