DocuPlus Establishes Ottawa Presence with Acquisition of RJM Backfile Conversion Services

Montreal, Canada, July 27, 2016 --( DocuPlus, a leading provider of document management and litigation support solutions announces a strategic growth move with the acquisition of Ottawa based RJM Backfile Conversion Services. This acquisition will bring a unique range of technology based litigation support and document management services to the National Capital Region.

RJM Backfile, founded in Ottawa in 2008 by Robert McFarlane provides customized high quality document scanning and coding services. Beginning with the Commissionaires Ottawa as its first client, the company achieved steady growth to serve numerous legal firms, businesses and associations. In late 2015, in recognition of its reputation as a provider of superior and cost-effective document digitization services, the County of Carleton Law Association (CCLA) appointed RJM Backfile a Member Partner of their prestigious Association of Lawyers and Legal firms in the National Capital Region and Eastern Ontario.

RJM Backfile founder Robert McFarlane, in a recent interview, spoke of the industry imperatives behind the DocuPlus acquisition. “The opportunities and professional responsibilities that accompany day-to-day management and processing of clients’ sensitive documents, both paper and electronic alike, now require RJM Backfile to raise its service delivery and technological capabilities to broader and higher levels,” he said.

In recognition of these growing technological and service expectations in the legal documentation industry, Montreal based DocuPlus’s President Malcolm DeSouza added “Our longstanding strategic alliance with RJM Backfile and our deep expertise in managed services, document management and litigation support brought us to the clear mutual recognition that exceptional results for our clients will be achieved by bringing our two entities together.”

The newly formed company will serve as a unique one-stop resource for all litigation and document management services and will bring added benefit to RJM Backfile’s Ottawa-area clients in legal, banking, security, medical records, construction, university, education, government and public sectors.

Over the coming months the RJM Backfile name will transition to DocuPlus and all team members of RJM Backfile will be transitioning to DocuPlus Ottawa.
