Considered Both Products
NetDocuments
Chose NetDocuments
Many products are good and have merit. To find the best one an individual organizational review is needed. It's not about which product is better, its about what best meets your needs.
Chose NetDocuments
Worldox GX3 was considered as an alternative to Netdocuments before the firm decided to switch to Netdocuments. There were some differences, which may or may not apply to Worldox GX4 (the current feature of the software).
Worldox GX4
Chose Worldox GX4
Worldox GX4 is a very good on-premise document management system, as it also integrates with the more common practice management systems. Worldox does have a web-based offering, however, it is not anywhere near as robust as a true cloud offering, like NetDocuments. Also with …
Chose Worldox GX4
Worldox is the most structured and organized of the software packages. It is primarily an on-premises solution, but it allows for the most customization and has the easiest interface. NetDocuments has a much higher price tag and is fully cloud-based. NetDocuments also allows …

NetDocuments
It is ideal where security is your number one concern or where there is a need to share securely across different physical locations. Speed is less than ideal in certain usage scenarios. It is limited by the speed of the internet and it can be difficult to pull large quantities of documents when researching or answering discovery requests, although, that being said, it can be addressed by maintaining your own secure server to contain a mirror of your online documents. But then the security for a mirror falls back on the organization.

Ease of navigation is probably the top seller for me. I might work on a dozen or more separate files per day and I need to be able to switch between files efficiently, especially when asked to find something quickly. Naming conventions are simple and easy to use. Searching for a document, even when there are hundreds, is pretty simple and straight forward.

Pros
NetDocuments
  • Searching: NetDocuments' searching capabilities put it on par with other legal search engines used for research and knowledge management purposes.
  • Scalability: Despite the ever-increasing number of items stored in the repository, time searching is unaffected.
  • Innovation: NetDocuments continuously looks for new solutions and updates their product regularly.
  • Ease of Update: Because it is Web-based, updates to the software do not require local installation.

  • Forced structure via hooking into every day applications and producing Worldox Open and Save constructs versus the standard application Open and Save menus.
  • Extreme customization options including cabinets, folders, and document types.
  • The indexing system is very useful for locating documents by name, body, date, etc.

Cons
NetDocuments
  • Delay. At times, there is a delay between saving a document into Netdocuments and actually seeing them in the appropriate workspace. Such a delay is caused by the system indexing the newly added file.
  • Netdocuments' servers slow down at times causing users to receive error messages. This can be quickly remedied, but can become a nuisance.

  • Cloud product is a little lacking
  • Little bit of learning curve out of the box
  • For a larger organization, may need to dedicate a resource to manage the program

Usability
NetDocuments
The product is simple to learn and adheres to well-known web user protocols. The NetDocuments team spends a lot of time talking to customers regarding how to improve their interface, and are pretty quick about implementing good ideas. The system is reliable and repeatable, and similar functions are laid out consistently and in formats that users are used to.

Performance
NetDocuments
NetDocuments is a performant web app. It is reliable and provides all the functionality of a sophisticated document management system. It also can serve, through its APIs, as a base system for other applications, which enhances its value. Other vendors find the company easy to work with, and it consistently seems to be the first to offer new features and technologies to its customers.

I've never had to contact support, but I won't give it a ten. We've had a few hiccups along the way, but nothing that couldn't be fixed within 24 hours.

Alternatives Considered
NetDocuments
We switched to NetDocuments 11 years ago. So, to be fair and accurate... the OpenText product at that time was called PC Docs and the company (that OpenText acquired) was Hummingbird. I can't remember who owned iManage at the time. Anyway, NetDocuments was a superior product at the time, in general, and more specifically because the search and remote access features\functions were superior (and still are).

  • Greatly improved productivity for users via searching, favorites, and forced organization.
  • Versioning and document preview can also improve productivity versus opening individual files.
  • Can require a "revolutionary" change in the workflow as the application's Open and Save prompts are radically different than normal application usage.
