The Council of Europe, Europe’s leading human rights organization, has partnered with Tikit, a global provider of technology solutions to legal and professional services firms and governmental organizations, to select NetDocuments as its cloud-based document management platform (DMS).
The contract is the result of a year-long competitive process that looked at several suppliers of document management systems. The Council of Europe selected the NetDocuments platform from Tikit because they were looking for a mature cloud-based solution to meet their needs.
Founded in 1949, the Council of Europe currently includes 47 member states, 28 of which are members of the European Union. The organisation assists these states in fighting corruption, terrorism and undertaking necessary judicial reforms. In addition, the Council of Europe promotes human rights through international conventions and makes recommendations through independent expert monitoring bodies, as well as the Committee of Ministers, Parliamentary Assembly European Court of Human Rights, Commissioner for Human Rights and the, Congress of Local and Regional Authorities.
John Hunter, CIO at the Council of Europe, said: “We went through a rigorous process in which DMS providers were invited to showcase their software to us and take part in an extensive proof of concept. We wanted a best of breed, highly customizable system that could support our user base of approximately 2,500 employees. Tikit and NetDocuments were selected after an extensive call for tender process and demonstrated that they were the best fit for our diverse and complex needs.”
