DataCert, Inc., the leading provider of electronic invoicing and legal spend management solutions, today announced that it now offers matter management capabilities with its acquisition of Corprasoft, Inc., a Dallas-based provider of matter management solutions. The acquisition will combine two best-in-class products to law departments (legal spend management and matter management) and broaden DataCert's existing product capabilities of legal and intellectual property spend management solutions.



DataCert and Corprasoft share the same business sensibilities

    "DataCert and Corprasoft share the same business sensibilities," said Eric M. Elfman, president and CEO of DataCert. "DataCert and Corprasoft both offer top-tier products, market to Fortune(R) 500 law departments and specialize in complex integrations. In fact, seven of the Fortune 500 and eight of the Fortune Global 500 are shared customers. This strategic acquisition will not only benefit the overall legal market but existing customers will gain the expertise of both industry leaders. We are delighted to add Corprasoft to the DataCert family as we drive a new era in legal technology innovation."

DataCert and Corprasoft's customers will benefit from a unique product vision that includes a comprehensive offering of best practices and a seamless integration of two proven products. With this acquisition, DataCert offers law departments a no-compromise capability to effectively manage their business operations.

"DataCert has a proven history of expanding its product portfolio to assist Fortune 500 corporate law departments with business process efficiency and cost management," said Jim Bridges, Corprasoft's president and CEO. "The acquisition of Corprasoft was a natural extension of DataCert's vision and business strategy. In addition to elevating DataCert's status as a legal technology thought leader, the combined company will be strongly positioned for future growth in this high-demand market."

Corprasoft, founded in 1991 by board member Phil Russell and led by Chairman of the Board Carl Sutherland, has long been a guiding force in matter management software innovation. The company released its Windows-based matter management software in 1993 and led the market with the release of the first Web-based matter management solution in 1998.

Corprasoft will maintain its Dallas office and Jim Bridges will continue to lead its operations.
