Experience, DM neutrality, and responsiveness draw firm to ADV
Minneapolis – September 7, 2017 – ADV, an exceptional provider of software, software services and professional consulting advice, announces its excitement to partner with MLT Aikins, Western Canada’s Law Firm, for the firm’s migration to iManage for document management.
MLT Aikins is the result of the merger of two widely respected and distinguished law firms, MacPherson Leslie & Tyerman LLP (MLT) and Aikins, MacAulay & Thorvaldson LLP (Aikins). It is a full-service law firm of more than 240 lawyers with a deep commitment to Western Canada and an understanding of its unique legal and business landscapes. MLT Aikins is the only law firm to have offices in Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. As one of the 30 Largest Law Firms in Canada, MLT Aikins has the bench strength and geographic scope to meet the increasingly complex needs of clients – from the personal concerns of individuals to the highly sophisticated and comprehensive requirements of major business enterprises.
Prior to the merger, MLT employed OpenText DM while Aikins utilized iManage for document management. The merger provided the opportunity for MLT Aikins to evaluate the advantages of each system, and determine which offered the best combination of benefits moving forward as a larger, more complex entity.
Several factors led to MLT Aikins’ confident choice of ADV as a migration partner. First, ADV is experienced. Each member of the ADV team is an expert, with over a decade of experience in their role and/or the document management industry. Second, ADV is unbiased. When MLT merged with Aikins, half of its users were comfortable on OpenText DM, while the other half were familiar with iManage. The newly merged firm had to decide which system would optimize its efficiency, confidence, and security moving forward. ADV’s deep familiarity with each OpenText DM and iManage allowed MLT Aikins to fully explore both options, then make its own well-informed decision about which way to go, knowing that ADV would be able to efficiently and expertly guide them through the process in either scenario. Finally, MLT Aikins was impressed by the responsiveness of ADV and its experts to inquiries throughout the decision-making process.
“ADV is very proud of the opportunity to work with MLT Aikins because we know the amount of research and the amount of time they’ve invested in studying all their options and considering these in light of their future needs. Their commitment to providing their staff with the best tools in order to serve their clients in an accurate and expeditious manner is impressive. They represent legal professionalism at its unerring best. ADV is equally committed to their users’ satisfaction with how the new system looks, works and performs,” stated Jerry Dolezal, President of ADV.
ADV is a customer-centric software services company with deep expertise in document management and information governance in finance, legal, commercial, and government markets. They deliver document and record management solutions customized to each organization’s environment, and do so in a manner that elicits confidence from both an organization’s users and its IT management.
