Simpson Grierson is one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading full-service commercial law firms, with over 300 team members across Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
In the early 2000’s, the firm chose Canon to be its exclusive supplier of print, managed mail and courier services. Important criteria when selecting such a key commercial partner includes trust and the capability to deliver a robust and reliable solution that would give it the freedom to focus on its core business.
For Simpson Grierson, it is really important to have world-class scanning and printing services. Like other law firms, it is frequently surveyed on the equipment its partners and staff use, and Information Services Director - Valerie Fogg says respondents regularly rate Canon’s as the best, reflecting the high regard in which its products are held within the legal sector.
The firm also wanted it’s staff to be able to securely print and scan across all three offices, as well as easily access and retrieve crucial documents from any location around the country.
Having recently refreshed their print fleet to the newest range of Canon technology, Simpson Grierson took advantage of this opportunity to work with Canon to introduce both print and document management software to securely print, manage and scan documents at any of the devices in their network.
Through Canon’s partnership with McAfee®, the new range of imageRUNNER Advance DX Series multifunction printers maximise data security through McAfee Embedded Control, reducing the risk of a cyber threat and making it easier for legal firms to maintain their clients’ confidentiality.
We've always felt that Canon really value our business, and they've really worked with us to understand how we work.
Having an intuitive document management system stops indiscriminate file saving to multiple locations, which can be an issue at many modern law firms.
Canon’s hardware provided a seamless integration with iManage software to enable Simpson Grierson to be able to store and sort digital files into one easy-to-use system, allowing staff to access critical information from any location. Information is saved into the correct place from the Canon device with no double handling.
The new scanning technology allows rapid conversion of printouts and other written material into digital form.
Simpson Grierson’s print room, along with mail and stationery services at their Auckland and Wellington offices are managed by Converga New Zealand, a division of Canon, whose dedicated staff ensure that daily operations within this area run seamlessly.
One of the key goals of the recent print fleet refresh was to ensure the transition to the new technology was as seamless as possible. Canon provided a dedicated Project Manager to lead the transition, ensuring that communication was clear across all internal and external stakeholders in the project.
With the recent equipment refresh we did, we were assigned a project Manager who was absolutely excellent and it made a huge difference to the success of the project.
From the original input to the final output, Canon's solutions for professional services manage the bulk of paper work, making it easy to digitise, print, archive and quickly retrieve crucial documents when needed.
