Datacert, Inc. has announced that Walmart Stores, Inc.has selected Passport, Datacert's patent-pending technology platform, to help strategically manage Walmart's domestic legal processes and systems. In addition, Walmart will implement Datacert's matter management and spend management systems, which are built on Passport.

Passport is the only enterprise legal management platform available that allows even the most expansive law departments to integrate all legal technology solutions in one space, including complementary software that supports other business processes, e.g., e-discovery, litigation holds, document management, etc. Consolidating systems on Passport will provide the retail organization with enhanced visibility into its legal-related business.Among other benefits, this will provide collaboration internally and with outside firms the legal team currently manages.

Prior to officially unveiling Passport in September, Datacert spent more than 18 months developing the platform with Walmart, and other clients from Fortune Global 500 companies, law firms, and industry thought leaders. Every design and development decision is a direct result of input, guidance, and testing from development partners and is focused on providing a solid foundation for consolidating, managing, configuring, and even building new legal applications. Walmart's legal department played an important role in the development of Passport.

Passport is a straightforward platform that allows for easy configuration and integration so changes can be made internally without having to go back to Datacert or hire a third party.
