Mitratech Reaches Agreement to Acquire TeamConnect Legal Hold Product From Kiersted Systems

Acquisition Strengthens Mitratech's Ability to Invest And Innovate Upon the TeamConnect Legal Hold Product, a Key Component of Its Industry-Leading, End-to-End Enterprise Legal Management Platform

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- Mitratech, the leading provider of enterprise legal management solutions, announced today that it has reached agreement to acquire TeamConnect Legal Hold, previously a white-label solution for TeamConnect, developed by Kiersted Systems. This acquisition of TeamConnect Legal Hold further solidifies Mitratech's position as the most comprehensive provider of enterprise legal management solutions in the corporate legal industry.

While TeamConnect clients have been able to utilize the TeamConnect Legal Hold product as a key module on the TeamConnect platform for the last 4 years, direct control over the product will allow Mitratech to expand its investment and innovation in a product that provides significant value to the Office of the General Counsel.

"Our partnership with Kiersted Systems has been invaluable over the past 4 years," noted Mitratech CEO Jason Parkman. "With their support, almost 20% of TeamConnect clients have taken advantage of TeamConnect Legal Hold's mission-critical functionality. It is because of the value that our clients realize in this product that we pursued this acquisition."

Kiersted Systems President George Kiersted adds, "We look forward to a continued partnership with Mitratech as a key implementation partner for TeamConnect solutions, and we are proud that our development of the TeamConnect Legal Hold product has created value for legal departments globally."

TeamConnect Legal Hold helps legal staff create, maintain, and enforce a legal hold process that can withstand judicial scrutiny, minimizing the overall risk to the business. Legal departments are able to:

  • Identify matters requiring legal hold early in the matter lifecycle, reducing risk to the organization
  • Select custodians using integration with an HR database
  • Get visibility throughout the legal hold lifecycle and quickly pull documentation needed for court appearances, with powerful out-of-the-box reporting.
  • Send email notices to custodians and non-TeamConnect users, directing them to a secure site where they can attest to compliance and understanding of holds.
  • Access recipient responses through mobile devices
  • Get real-time tracking agreement and compliance
  • Assert greater control of the discovery process by storing matter management and legal hold information in one central location

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
