Grant Thornton Australia selects iManage Cloud for 1300 Users

Grant Thornton Australia Limited (GTAL) has selected iManage to support the firm’s agile workplace strategy and increase IT agility and user collaboration, all delivered through the iManage Cloud. Grant Thornton Australia is a member firm of Grant Thornton, one of the world’s leading organizations of independent assurance, tax and advisory firms, with access to a network of over 40,000 people across more than 130-member firms worldwide.

Years of growth through mergers and acquisitions has left GTAL with a large number of disparate systems for performing key business processes. With the firm’s cloud-first IT strategy, iManage Cloud will allow GTAL to implement a standard document and email management platform across the entire organization delivering an agile, flexible and scalable solution for the business.

“The sheer volume of data our people deal with is enormous –  a hundred thousand emails every single day, just for starters,” said Andrew Pritchett, Chief Information Officer, GTAL.

“iManage were able to demonstrate how this will work on a single, scalable platform, making it easy for our people to sort, share and search that amount of information, turn it into knowledge and to derive real insights. iManage Cloud gives us the capacity to accommodate those data volumes and the agility to grow rapidly – we can cater for a new business unit or full merger without infrastructure upgrades and delays.”

“iManage connects all of our knowledge and integrates easily with our digital platform,” said Luke Morey, Program Manager, Office of the Chief Operating Officer, GTAL.

“Its user interface is specifically tailored for professional services and will make the change management frictionless, helping us to drive adoption across the firm.”

iManage partner Phoenix Business Solutions was selected by GTAL as their strategic technology implementation partner to facilitate the design and delivery of the solution to approximately 1300 GTAL employees across Australia.

“IT strategy needs to be aligned with business strategy,” said Dan Carmel, Chief Marketing Officer, iManage.

“Working with Phoenix to implement iManage Cloud, GTAL isn’t just transforming their IT system—they’re supporting a business strategy to increase IT agility and create a compelling customer experience. That kind of customer focus is what wins in today’s markets.”
