SaalexIT has supported ZLD in its complete renewal of its IT hardware portfolio and the update of its document management, bookkeeping, word processing and communications software to meet the demands of its practice, including requirements for data privacy and security. Saalex introduced new virtual servers to support the user hardware and software updates. SaalexIT collaborated with ZLD in the definition of updated comprehensive standard images for ZLD’s attorney and staff workstations, addressing opportunities for enhanced integration across software products arising from updates.
Saalex has support the relocation of ZLD’s New York Office to the top of Manhattan’s One Penn Plaza and the opening of its office in Chicago’s Loop through merger with the long established firm of Green & Letts. For each of these new locations, SaalexIT provided 1) network planning, 2) network equipment configuration, 3) implementation of the VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection linking the Firm’s offices, 4) attorney and staff workstation configuration; and 5) roll out of ZLD’s standardized Office Wi-Fi environment. SaalexIT supported the relocation remotely from California, collaborating to accomplish implementation with the ZLD teams onsite in California, Illinois and New York.

SaalexIT looks forward to continuing to support ZLD as the Firm continues to develop its practice, both as a continuing Managed Service Provider to ZLD and as a collaborator with the ZLD team in the kinds of specific initiatives mentioned above that the Firm’s management identifies as critical to the Firm’s growth.
