NetDocuments acquires ‘Decisiv Email’ technology and team from Recommind
Company takes a bold step forward in revolutionising the legal technology industry
NetDocuments, a leading cloud-based document and email management service, today announced the acquisition of Decisiv Email from Recommind, an information intelligence company focused on advanced analytics for discovery and investigations. This acquisition includes Decisiv Email’s development team as well as the technology. Decisiv Email is a mature, enterprise-grade email management solution with years of technology development in intelligent, predictive email filing, which will bolster NetDocuments’ service offering.
“This is truly a case of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts,” said Matt Duncan, CEO of NetDocuments. “Anyone in our industry who has seen or experienced Decisiv Email knows it’s simply the most powerful email management solution in the market. The Australian-based team brings a wealth of industry knowledge that will complement NetDocuments’ core service. We truly believe that combining Decisiv Email with NetDocuments will result in the most modern and intuitive matter-centric content management solution ever made available to the legal market.”
Richard Verschoor, former managing director of Decisiv Email and now VP of NetDocuments email management, stated, “While other document management vendors tout predictive filing, no vendor has anything close to the advanced predictive algorithms contained in Decisiv Email. Building predictive algorithms that actually work, takes years of iterative development and we’ve been building and working on Decisiv Email technology for nearly ten years.”
According to ILTA’s 2014 technology survey and purchasing survey, email management remains one of the most pressing technology issues facing law firms today. Decisiv Email solves email management issues by understanding email content and user patterns in order to accurately predict where an email should be filed. It then allows users to file email with just one click. This one-click technology not only vastly improves the desktop email filing experience, but also provides the most viable method of filing email on mobile devices through its native app. The capability to file email on the go, and doing so with the current solutions in the market, is a cumbersome process that Decisiv Email directly addresses.
NetDocuments will support existing Decisiv Email customers and intends to integrate some components of the Decisiv Email technology with NetDocuments’ proven cloud-based infrastructure. "By combining these two technologies and organisations, there's no other vendor in the market with more skill, experience, and passion in SaaS document and email management,” Alvin Tedjamulia, NetDocuments CTO, stated. “With this purchase, NetDocuments will continue to provide unprecedented levels of simplicity, usability, and mobility when it comes to a modern document and email management platform.”
