Norsk Hydro ASA (Hydro), one of the largest aluminium companies worldwide, has selected Repstor Custodian for Legal™ from Transform Data International as its new matter management solution for its Group Legal Department, building on its existing corporate Microsoft 365 environment.

The legal department wanted to replace its legacy, on-premise document management system, iManage Work, with a cloud-based solution linked to Microsoft 365 which would be more cost-efficient and give the department more consistent control of information security and compliance across its operations.

Integrating comprehensive matter management into Microsoft 365 brings the Legal Department into line with the enterprise-wide efficiencies and controls enjoyed elsewhere in the company, and further increases the return on investment on the company-wide platform.

Specifically, the legal department found in Custodian for Legal a secure, affordable, and scalable solution which provides both on-and off-line access to matters. Because the IT makeover harnesses Hydro’s existing investments in Microsoft 365 and SharePoint, the required IT effort was acceptable, ensuring that the implementation was quick and easy. The data from the existing iManage system has been migrated using Transform Data’s Migration Toolkit, which comes with out-of-the-box connectors to various systems and guarantees minimal disruption for users.

Commenting on the choice of Custodian for Legal solution that Transform Data provides, Annette Sommer, who headed up the DMS project in the Group Legal Department, said: “We liked Custodian for Legal from the start, in particular because of its simple design and user-friendly interface. Our end-users are happy with the new system, and we have appreciated the close collaboration with the Transform Data team. It helps that they are familiar with our current way of working and have a standard approach to moving data from the legacy system to the new solution, making the transition very easy. Once our IT department confirmed that the solution was compliant with the strict security guidelines we have to follow these days, the project got underway rapidly.”

Rob Kubben, managing partner at Transform Data added: “We are pleased to welcome Hydro to our customer base. The migration approach we’ve developed and honed over numerous previous projects made the switch easy from the end-users’ perspective. Once the teams have become used to the new system, they will start to benefit from the numerous functions and features provided by Microsoft 365 and Custodian for Legal – without additional costs or licences.”

Swiss Retail Giant, Migros, Selects Repstor’s Custodian for Legal from Transform Data International

Swiss Retail Giant, Migros, Selects Repstor’s Custodian for Legal from Transform Data International

The Microsoft 365-based matter management solution has already garnered significant user support and adoption amongst Migros’s legal professionals

MAASTRICHT/ZÜRICH, 22. July 2020 – Transform Data International (TDI) has proudly announced that the legal department of Migros Genossenschafts Bund (Migros), Switzerland’s largest employer, retail chain and supermarket brand, has selected Repstor Custodian for Legal for its document, email and matter management.

Following a successful proof of concept (PoC), the legal team concluded that Custodian for Legal was the right solution to meet its needs. Migros is an established user of Microsoft 365/Office and was looking for an application it could integrate fully within Microsoft Outlook, which its legal professionals already use continuously throughout the day. These knowledge workers’ familiarity with the software led to very high adoption levels during the PoC; users also required minimal training.

TDI will implement the Custodian for Legal solution for Migros, and perform a bulk migration of data from Winpat -the legacy system Migros has used until now. TDI will also advise on the creation of smart reports to provide visual insights into KPIs and workload status from everyday operational data.

Matthias U. Studer, Head of Intellectual Property at Migros, commented: “The scope of the project goes beyond just document and email management. We are configuring the system in a way that will provide the exact data that we need for our reports. This will enable a big improvement in efficiency as we leverage available Office 365 components such as Power BI to create very intuitive dashboards.”
Over the upcoming weeks TDI will work with Migros’s legal department to ensure a smooth implementation and provide training for users, insofar as this needed to embrace the fuller capabilities of the Repstor solution in conjunction with Microsoft 365.

“We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the collaboration with the Migros team during the proof-of-concept, which has helped jumpstart the actual implementation project,” said Rob Kubben, managing partner at TDI. “Migros are a prestigious customer and we are delighted that they have selected Custodian for Legal -and Transform Data as the delivery partner.
“We are looking forward to further developing our presence in the Swiss region, and to supporting more law firms and legal departments here as they approach their own digital transformations,” he added.
