This Wednesday, Mitratech was honored with receiving the Legal Procurement Innovator Award from Buying Legal Counsel in conjunction with our partners, Keesal, Young & Logan (KYL) and NetApp.
We’ve been working with them since 2017 when NetApp found itself in the middle of a document collection process that was disjointed, labor-intensive across the company, and unnecessarily vulnerable to human error. To streamline the process, NetApp partnered with experts from KYL, MoFo, Elevate, and Mitratech’s TAP to implement an automated workflow for document collection, replacing the antiquated manual process.
The co-created solution was a success, and a larger story emerged: this collaboration evolved into a powerful model for a joint approach to tackling complex problems that draws from a cross-section of the entire legal ecosystem and resulted in annual savings of $2M+ and 5.7x ROI. This partnership ultimately led to the recent launch of Keesal Propulsion Labs, which combines KYL’s legal and business expertise with Mitratech’s TAP Workflow Automation to empower legal teams to design and deploy innovative workflows that directly address business needs.
The institutional knowledge, creativity and fearlessness we have gained from our experience in working with KYL and NetApp these past two years has been exponential. As a company, we are dedicated to creating an environment and culture that allows our team as well as our partners to innovate with the goal of transforming legal operations as we know it.
But what does it really mean to innovate? As KYL’s Justin Hectus so eloquently put it, “We take risks and are willing to fail fast and learn fast so that we can turn uncertainty and emerging risk into opportunity.” This award reflects the shared trust amongst our team and our partners in developing enterprise solutions that transform legal departments into centers of excellence.
It’s a good time to be bold as the next frontier of legal operations is upon us. Today, we celebrate with the Mitratech team and our partners as we look forward to what lies ahead.
