LexisNexis®, a leading global provider of content and technology solutions designed for professionals in the legal, corporate and government sectors today announced its alliance with Uptime Legal Systems, the leading provider of cloud services to law firms.
LexisNexis will provide Time Matters® and PCLaw® customers with a hosted remote access option, allowing them to access their law firm matters, contacts, documents, invoices and other practice management functions, anytime, anywhere via a secure online connection.
LexisNexis is committed to providing world-class service and support to its clients, and acknowledges that not every cloud services provider is sufficiently equipped to manage the nuances of hosting their legal software products and supporting the legal community at large. To ensure an optimal customer experience, LexisNexis developed a new Authorized Hosting Program so that companies that provide hosting services for LexisNexis products meet the highest standards of reliability, security, ethics and support. This new program and its requirements, developed in consultation with Uptime Legal, were designed with the singular purpose of providing a best-in-class experience to customers of Time Matters and PCLaw.
“We are thrilled to announce the addition of hosting solutions for our PCLaw and Time Matters Customers,” said Scott Wallingford, Vice President and General Manager of Law Firm Software Solutions for LexisNexis. “Uptime Legal Systems was an obvious provider for us, helping to bring continued value to our active customers through an integrated system allowing them to fully manage their business, on their terms.”
Uptime Legal Systems was named the first LexisNexis Authorized Hosting Provider. For over a decade, Uptime has provided cloud and hosting services to hundreds of law firms, many of whom utilize PCLaw and Time Matters. This experience and legal industry expertise made Uptime Legal the clear choice as the first Authorized Hosting Provider for LexisNexis.
Uptime Legal’s private cloud offering, Uptime Practice™, is a complete Law Office in the Cloud™ that eliminates the need for law firms to own on-premises servers and manage IT headaches. Uptime Practice will host Time Matters and PCLaw, along with the firm’s other software, documents and email. Uptime Practice includes unlimited IT support, providing the legal industry’s only end-to-end, fully managed IT hosting and support platform.
“We could not be more honored to have been selected as the first LexisNexis Authorized Hosting Provider,” said Dennis Dimka, Uptime Legal’s CEO. “It is a testament to our reputation as the leading provider of cloud services for law firms. We are committed to providing the same seamless experience with current and future LexisNexis customers that the legal industry has come to expect of Uptime Legal, and look forward to continuing to help law firms practice better.”
