Share Article

Chicago’s premier legal system integrator will resell, train and offer integration services to law firms for the Verdatum digital dictation automated workflow solution.

Project Leadership Associates Inc. (PLA) and Verdatum have formed a strategic partnership to offer PLA customers implementation, integration, training and support services for the Verdatum Digital Dictation System (DDS) and Verdatum for Interwoven Worksite. The partnership combines Verdatum’s legal specific digital dictation solution with the services of PLA, Chicago’s premier systems integrator, which supports thousands of users in the legal vertical.

“PLA is always looking for best of breed solutions that deliver reliability, scalability, and fast ROI to our legal clients, regardless of size,” said Doug Klatt, Director of Business Development at PLA. “Digital dictation is quickly moving to the forefront of the law firm’s business process. This new approach with a legal specific application from Verdatum is what has been lacking from other offerings. If you’re going to lead, you need expertise, and the ability to deliver value. Our strategic partnership with Verdatum offers that and we look forward to providing our legal clients with another valuable tool to streamline their business processes, automate their workflow, and make them more productive.”

Verdatum’s integration with Interwoven Worksite simplifies and automates the law firm’s workflow, increases the firm’s efficiency, and assures clients that state of the art security is utilized by the firm to keep their work product secure. It allows attorneys to remotely upload dictation to the office from any internet connection. Because of its ease of training and use, and its tight integration with Worksite, ROI is measured in a few short months.

“Our partnership with PLA fits perfectly into our long-term strategy of aligning ourselves with the systems integrators that law firms rely upon for legal specific solutions,” said John Methfessel, President and CEO of Verdatum. “Law firms deserve more than a one size fits all digital dictation solution primarily marketed to other verticals such as the medical profession. Verdatum differentiates itself from competition by offering tools specifically designed to help lawyers and the workflow process of the law firm. Combining the stability and scale of an organization like PLA with Verdatum’s innovative and solution oriented concept is the best of all worlds for law firms. Our partnership with PLA validates the approach we’ve taken.”
