ACIL Allen Consulting
iManage Work Implementation
ACIL Allen is the largest independent Australian-owned economics and policy consultancy. Having offices throughout Australia, they specialise in the use of applied economics and econometrics to analyse, develop and evaluate policy, strategy and programs.
ACIL Allen engaged Alan FitzGerald of Practise Connections to assist with the selection of a Document Management Solution from which iManage Cloud was chosen as the best fit for the firm.
One immediate advantage of the iManage Cloud was that the ACIL Allen data would be stored in Australia, as opposed to their incumbent solution which was not meeting ACIL Allen's client's requirements in terms of data sovereignty.
OIA implemented iManage Cloud for ACIL Allen with an integration to their Workflow Max workflow system. OIA's consultants seamlessly integrated and implemented the solution to ensure it met ACIL Allen's needs.
ACIL Allen's previous document management solution was hosted on an offshore server, which prevented all documents being stored in one location as certain clients' documents were required to be kept within Australia. As iManage Cloud operates both primary and backup Australian based data centres, this increased ACIL Allens ability to search for all documents within a single repository.
Users at ACIL Allen prefer iManage over their previous system. With its user-friendly and intuitive interface, iManage has aided staff to work with content in a highly efficient and effective manner.
“We are extremely pleased with the outcome. The system intuitive to use, a much higher proportion of our documents are stored in iManage than our previous system, and it is easy to search for documents. Additionally, OIA and iManage have been very responsive to any queries that we have on the system, ensuring that the productivity of our users and IT staff is enhanced.
