Kraft Kennedy, a consulting firm that specializes in solving critical business problems for law firms, legal departments, corporations, financial services firms and nonprofits, has been named NetDocuments’ 2020 Corporate Law Worldwide Partner of the Year in recognition of leading achievements in technology and systems integrations.
The company, a designated NetDocuments Platinum Partner, accepted the inaugural award at the NetDocuments Elevate 2020 virtual conference.
According to Deloitte’s 2020 Legal Department Strategy Survey (Deloitte Survey), most legal departments are substantively involved in addressing pandemic-related business continuity, compliance, contractual and supply chain impact, and cyber vulnerabilities. The NetDocuments cloud platform and the project management, implementation and cloud roll-out services provided by Kraft Kennedy directly address these challenges and tie back to the recognition as corporate legal partner of the year.
Alvin Tedjamulia, NetDocuments CTO and co-founder, has worked with Kraft Kennedy over three decades. "We have had meaningful experiences over the years, innovating and problem solving together for the legal community. We are a very strong team. The recognition of Kraft Kennedy as Corporate Legal Worldwide Partner of the Year reinforces the passion and value they continue to bring to our shared customers, especially in corporate legal."
Kraft Kennedy and NetDocuments are uniquely positioned to understand how law departments work, with an appreciation for the unique challenges associated with integrating technologies to provide a secure and modern workspace.
Kraft provides deep expertise in the areas of DMS integration, Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Exchange, addressing major challenges faced by law departments looking to be more productive and collaborate more effectively in remote work environments.
At a time when organizations are challenged by transitioning to the cloud, and related security and governance concerns, Kraft Kennedy’s cybersecurity and information governance expertise combined with NetDocuments award-winning compliance and information security solution, delivers a reliable, future-proofed, true cloud document management platform.
“Kraft Kennedy’s deep understanding of the unique internal needs of a corporate legal department is second to none and their expert team consistently manages and coordinates flawless implementations,” noted Mike “Gibby” Gibson, NetDocuments’ Chief Revenue Officer. “The feedback and reference ability from our mutual corporate customers are always outstanding.”
As stated in the Deloitte Survey, independent of COVID-19 challenges, legal departments are still under constant pressure to operate more efficiently, contain costs, and collaborate more effectively with other areas of the business and their clients. Having a digital transformation strategy in place, which typically includes a secure, cloud-based, collaborative document/content management component, is now an increasing priority, compared to pre-pandemic strategies.
“We have been dealing with document management software for more than thirty years and have implemented for some of the largest corporate legal departments,” stated Michael Kraft, General Counsel and Founder of Kraft Kennedy. “The work product of corporate legal is heavily document based. Management of those documents as to iterations, what is the final? where is it kept? and who has access? have presented an overwhelming challenge for legal departments.
Kraft added: “The NetDocuments management tool delivers seamless security, easy access to those with authority and the opportunity to look at all the iterations of a negotiated transaction quickly and easily. Appreciation for the nuance required for a seamless integration with the other applications, has resulted in very successful projects. We are glad to deliver this technology and experience to our clients and garner this incredible award.”
