It Was Great In the Beginning...

In the early 1990s, Worldox gave professional services firms unprecedented security—at a time when “the cloud” was just those things in the sky that sometimes brought rain.

When Innovation Stops, Age Isn't Kind

But as time passed and the cloud became a robust storage option that allowed secure mobile access to data, Worldox started falling behind.

  • Cloud-based document management systems were allowing offsite access that offered the same experience to staff that they’d expect on-site
  • Integrations with popular software packages and operating systems
  • No need to maintain on-site servers and document management systems
  • Disaster-proof document access and storage
  • Theft-proof document security—even when potential thieves are employees with technical knowledge

As document management systems like Worldox stood still with features and hard costs, data costs in the cloud have plummeted, and cloud-based features have outpaced the changing world.

Cloud-Based Document Management Hit Its Stride

Firms using cloud-based document management systems don’t have to worry themselves about…

  • Hardware costs, repairs, and upgrades
  • IT salaries
  • Security systems, testing
  • Backups
  • Disaster recovery plans, testing
  • Being tied to a traditional office environment
  • Left stranded and helpless when the unexpected happens

When disaster struck, Cloud-based firms didn't miss a beat.

No law firm escaped Covid-19. But there was a striking difference in how cloud-based law-firms were able to handle the disruption. 

Firms that had already made the switch in how they managed documents already had a reliable, secure way to create, edit, store, locate, and collaborate on documents.

It’s sad to see a work-horse put out to pasture—but luckily, there’s a better option.

NetDocuments is the gold standard of cloud-based document management systems and offers unparalleled security and mobile features that law firms love.

Remote Access

NetDocuments is a cloud-based program, so it wins hands down on the remote access portion. You can open up NetDocuments from any device that has internet access and a web browser. NetDocuments is available via the Web, their mobile app, and integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Office, Outlook, and Adobe Acrobat. You can work remotely in the applications you already know. To access Worldox remotely, you need to use something like terminal services (Remote Desktop). That was great in 2002, not so great now.


In the early 2000s, firms began moving from WordPerfect to Word. You never ran into a firm converting from Word to WordPerfect. All new firms that started were going with Word. 

To this day, there are still firms using WordPerfect, but they are a vast minority.  

WordPerfect = Worldox

Word = NetDocuments
