POMONA, CA and MINNEAPOLIS, MN - November 2, 2010 - AgentLegal, Inc., offering law firms the next generation research portal and Electronic Resource Management (ERM) platform, together with Nina Platt Consulting, Inc. (NPCI), working with law firms to develop Knowledge Management (KM) strategy and support KM initiatives, today announced a strategic partnership that expands both companies' ability to offer comprehensive KM solutions to the legal industry. The agreement provides NPCI with reseller rights to distribute solutions from across the AgentLegal (AL) product line - AL Enterprise, AL Portal and AL Lite - and to provide value-added services, such as system customization and consultation, to AgentLegal customers across the U.S.
"We clearly identified a symbiotic relationship between the AgentLegal products and our electronic resources and knowledge management services," said Nina Platt, owner and principal consultant of NPCI. "We are looking forward to helping AgentLegal strengthen its relationship with the legal market and law librarians, specifically."
AgentLegal provides a next generation research and portal platform, incorporating single sign-on, password management, client/matter validation and tracking and ERM. The AL platform enables the searching of a law firm's critical external and internal resources, databases and knowledge centers, while also providing extensive user, resource and client/matter tracking and reporting to increase the firm's ability to monitor, control and allocate costs. NPCI focuses on information and knowledge management/access for law firms, as well as management and marketing projects for legal information/software vendors. Platt herself is a law librarian and former AmLaw 100 firm library director who has worked with KM in law firms since 1986 and in law library management for 20+ years.
"The experience and industry knowledge provided by Nina and her team will help us to both sell and enhance our solutions, and ultimately better meet our customers' needs," said Paul Cope, president of AgentLegal. "Together our firms can more effectively develop and present the compelling benefits and ROI provided by our solutions."
