HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Jun 23, 2011) - Datacert, Inc., the premier global provider of enterprise legal management solutions, announced today that Passport, its patent-pending technology platform for consolidating and integrating legal applications, was honored with the "People's Choice" Stevie® Award at the 2011 American Business Awards in the category of Favorite New Server Software Product. Passport was presented with the honor after a rigorous voting process where more than 140,000 votes were cast.

"Since Passport was released in September 2010, the platform has continuously garnered positive recognition and it is a privilege to add a Stevie Award to our portfolio of successes," said Jim Tallman, president and chief executive officer, Datacert. "Receiving an American Business Award is evidence of the growing importance that legal technologies have on all business functions within an enterprise. The platform's ability to provide visibility into legal operations and help manage critical areas, such as risk exposure and compliance, allows legal professionals to make better business decisions that directly impact the entire organization's competitive advantage."

The American Business Awards are the nation's premier business awards program and were created to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and business people across the US. This year, more than 2,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for Stevie Award consideration. More than 200 executives across the country participated in the judging process to determine the Finalists and Stevie Award winners. In winning a "People's Choice" Stevie, Datacert Passport beat out other finalists including Novell Cloud Manager and Internap Accelerated IP.

Datacert developed Passport after conducting market research that indicated corporate legal departments are managing dozens of technology applications from different vendors. Passport is specifically designed to directly tackle the operational challenges that result from the overload of legal point solutions by consolidating all applications, such as best-in-breed market solutions from Datacert, for tasks such as matter management and spend management, and those from complementary solution providers in areas like e-discovery, on one platform. By utilizing the platform, a legal department can better track legal spend and combine and integrate legal systems with systems in other departments, such as finance, compliance, and risk management. The sharing of data across departments, business units, and with outside counsel drives efficiency and equips the general counsel with the intelligence needed to strategically manage legal processes, measure return on investment, and communicate the value delivered to the organization.
