Local solicitor celebrates 10 years with Documatics
Documatics, the Irish owned software company, will celebrate 10 years in business this month and global success with a multi-million dollar revenue stream spanning 3 continents. The indigenous company, which has thousands of users globally and whose chairman is Mitchelstown solicitor John Brook, has won several significant deals in Australia, Ireland and the USA.
The privately held company, which specialises in business process, document and customer relationship management software, was founded in 2004 when David Boland (ex Motorola) and solicitor John Brooks joined forces to create a software solution specifically catering for the legal sector.
“Documatics is now being used by over 4,000 users in Australia, USA and Ireland, and in just 10 years we have gone from being an indigenous tech start-up to an internationally recognised brand”, said founder and CEO David Boland.
Documatics is one of the top four legal technology firms in Australia, following the establishment of an office in Sydney in 2008 when the Irish market was contracting due to recession.
“The Australian legal market offered immense opportunities for Documatics and we were confident that our solution could serve the significant market there. The move has not only grown the company substantially, but also enabled the firm to continue to invest in the product, further developing and tailoring the solution,” Mr Boland explained.
Documatics now employs a team of 11 in Australia, comprising software developers as well as legal, sales and marketing team members.
“We have always focused on the user and the technology, while competitors have adopted aggressive sales strategies, Documatics wins business consistently through referrals,” explains John Brooks, chairman of Documatics.
“We are true to the market we serve, and very much in touch with solicitors’ requirements. Feedback and practice evolution continue to drive the company’s technology development, while customers are the greatest salespeople for the solution.”
Documatics is supported by Enterprise Ireland.
