LegalKEY Replacement (Four Reasons Why)



From the team at FileTrail comes: "4 Reasons It’s Time To Replace LegalKEY" --
  • "If you haven’t heard, future development for LegalKEY is over. However, that’s no surprise to anyone still using LegalKEY. Although the company hasn’t announced their records management system is being sunsetted, customers haven’t gotten any significant upgrades or product enhancements in the last 5-7 years. To give you an idea of how little effort is going into LegalKEY these days, they’ve actually gone the way of ARM/FileSurf—by outsourcing product support."
  • "Keep in mind that staying with a product that has taken this road doesn’t bode well for the future. HP sunsetted ARM, with a final end of life in the past."
  • "Today, if you’re on LegalKEY you’re paying annual support and not getting anything in return. Plus, to get LegalKEY to run on a later version of SQL it will cost you time and money. (And we’re not talking SQL 2012, 14 or 16—this is just to get you to SQL 8.) While that might not be enough to convince you to make the switch, here are four other reasons why it’s a great time to get off LegalKEY."
“It has been many years since we have had any LegalKEY upgrades or significant product enhancements. Since future development is over, we have turned to FileTrail to replace LegalKEY. FileTrail provides the flexibility, continual development, software integrations and advanced reporting features we need to properly manage our records program going forward.”
