Datacert Passport technology platform enables corporate legal departments and legal service providers to unite all their legal systems on a single, secure, collaborative framework

Passport PassportTM is Datacert’s patent-pending technology platform that enables corporate legal departments, law firms, and other legal service providers to unite all their legal systems on a single, secure, collaborative framework. With its unique ability to simplify the way lawyers work, drive down total cost of ownership (TCO) of legal systems, improve collaboration, and provide visibility into data and information across legal systems, Passport delivers truly game-changing technology to the legal industry. In fact, Datacert has been recognized by Hyperion Research, the leading analyst firm focused on legal technology and operations, as a "Market Innovator" for the vision behind Passport.

By providing all of the common infrastructure found in any legal system – for example, a database, security, workflow, business intelligence, a rules engine, search, and notifications – and a unique legal framework that ensures this functionality comes pre-configured based on legal industry best practices, the Passport platform provides a solid foundation on which legal departments can consolidate all of their applications. Combine this with Passport toolkits that empower clients to administer, configure, test, integrate, and extend their applications on their own, the Collaboration Portal, which enables in-house and outside counsel to securely collaborate on anything, and Passport’s ability to deeply integrate with the systems lawyers already use, and the result is the only true platform for enterprise legal management.

The Passport ecosystem includes:Legal Applications:
Datacert offers industry-leading and applications as combined or standalone solutions. These applications unite Datacert’s experience of 400+ solution implementations for Fortune 500 legal departments with Passport’s modern, highly-intuitive user interface, unmatched usability and collaboration features, and powerful ability to self-configure and extend the solution.

Legal Framework:
Passport’s unique legal framework provides reusable components that come pre-configured according to legal industry best practices. For example, Passport’s security model inherently aligns with typical roles and responsibilities found in a corporate legal department (e.g., practice areas, groups like attorneys or paralegals, roles like invoice approvers or matter reviewers). Clients or third-party software developers can leverage the legal framework to accelerate the development of new, best practice-enabled legal applications and ensure all applications share data and work well together.
