Ascertus Limited, a leading document and information lifecycle management specialist announced a 30% revenue growth in 2021, outperforming the previous years, 2020 and even 2019 despite the pandemic.
The expansion and increased use of the iManage Work document and email system in corporate firms, legal and accounting firms have contributed to the growth of the company's performance. While the UK is still the core market for Ascertus, The Global Efficiency Group (TGE Group) alliance strengthened the company presence in Nordic countries including Netherlands, Germany and North America.
Acertus ensured that client service was a top priority, thereby increasing the headcount by 30% to provide further support in line with the company's growth and are continuing to invest and hire the best talent across administration, professional services, sales and support. Ascertus has incorporated iManage Work in many departments such as tax, HR, facilities, client services and compliance across many corporate organisations including insurance, finance and pharmaceutical in the UK and Europe.
“In 2021, many of our sales efforts outside of legal, came to fruition,” says Roy Russell, CEO of Ascertus. In the corporate sector, we already have a well-established presence in legal departments, but with the pandemic and working from home continuing through the year, other business departments realised that their ‘making do’ way of operating was simply untenable for such an extended period of time. With iManage Work already deployed in the legal function, corporates saw that the department made the transition to remote working a lot more easily, so expanding the solution into other business functions became a logical next step.”
Russell adds, “In 2021, we gained significant traction for the solution in the accountancy sector too. There was obviously a business need for document management capability and the cloud made it quick and easy for them to deploy the solution, despite all the restrictions the pandemic imposed.”
In recognition of the expertise in delivering a high-quality service and migrating customers to the iManage Cloud, Ascertus was awarded the iManage Cloud Excellence Partner 2021 accolade for the fifth consecutive time.
Furthermore, their commitment to cybersecurity by attaining Cyber Essentials PLUS certification in 2021, a government backed scheme designed to guard against cybersecurity threats, and the integration of a highly successful platform Microsoft Teams and long-term partnership with Microsoft provides a confident future. Through this, Ascertus is positioned as a highly reliable technology supplier that optimises operations, collaboration and a high level of security and data protection for corporates and professional services firms across the globe.
Roy Russell concludes, “We are excited about 2022 and are confident that the business momentum that we have steadily been building year-on-year, will continue. The investments we have made in the business over the last two years position us well – not only for continued expansion into international markets and industry verticals, but more importantly, to now gain strongholds in these areas.”
