DataCert, Inc. announced that Passport, its new patent-pending technology platform for legal departments, has been selected by Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta (PBP-ATL) to connect its network of 1500-plus attorneys who provide pro bono legal services to nonprofit agencies across Atlanta. PBP-ATL will implement the Passport platform as well as DataCert's matter management application, with the goal of greatly improving process efficiency.
PBP-ATL is a nonprofit organization that was founded and is run by a consortium of legal executives and attorneys from several Atlanta-based companies. Passport was selected by PBP-ATL's staff and its board of directors, which includes legal executives and attorneys from Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta, GE Energy, Cox Communications, Inc., The Coca-Cola Company, UPS, Southern Company Services, Inc., Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., AT&T, Delta Airlines, McKesson Provider Technologies, and AGL Resources.
"In trying to find a solution to meet our unique needs, we reviewed several different systems available in the market," stated Rachel Epps Spears, executive director, Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta.
"The ultimate goal of this project is to make the task of administering our matters and tracking and reporting status and metrics much more streamlined and efficient," said Reginald O'Shields, board chair, PBP-ATL and deputy general counsel, Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta. "This will enable us to focus less on administration and more on helping clients, potentially even allowing us to help more clients than we can today."
