(Vancouver, Canada – January 5, 2007) Phelps Dunbar LLP, one of the oldest law firms in the American south, has chosen SydneyPLUS International's Application Service Provider (ASP) model to provide improved library services and information security.
ASP met three key needs for Phelps Dunbar:
- A Web OPAC that could be customized to serve their attorney's needs
- A "safe area" to maximize data integrity and minimize service disruptions
- A channel to help market the library's services to remote offices
"The library at Phelps Dunbar wanted to provide easier access to their resources," says Harneet Rai, Account Manager for SydneyPLUS International, "being based in New Orleans, they also wanted something that could help them avoid service disruptions during hurricane season."
By choosing the ASP model for their system, Phelps Dunbar's data is now stored in SydneyPLUS's secure server room at our headquarters in Vancouver, Canada. This ensures that whatever weather conditions are affecting their head office, their data will be secure, and their remote offices will have uninterrupted access.
Founded in New Orleans in 1853, Phelps Dunbar has a history spanning 150 years. It has grown to a firm of over 250 attorneys, with a network of offices that spans Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, Florida and England.
