Across the business, iManage provides opportunities to work with the latest technologies, including artificial intelligence, cloud and cyber security to solve real-world problems for professionals.
“Law firms recognise that technology isn’t the only element that is needed to nurture a culture of innovation,” said Vaughan. “Firms are taking a holistic view of innovation so that they can run their business with efficiency and to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to dealing with evolving challenges, including competition, recruitment, talent retention and more. iManage has the technology and vision to support firms with all this and more – it’s an exciting time to join iManage as we continue to grow.”
