DataCert Bolsters European Expansion with the Addition of French and Spanish Web Site Content
LONDON, November 2, 2006 - DataCert, Inc., the leading provider of electronic invoicing and legal spend management solutions, announced today that its website www.datacerteurope.com is now available in French and Spanish, as well as German and localized English. The industry- and product-centric content, fueled by the growing worldwide demand for legal spend management tools, underscores DataCert's ongoing initiative to increase its presence in the European legal market and beyond.
Corporate law departments can now access comprehensive information on DataCert's Advanced Invoice Management System (AIMSSM) and other products and services in multiple languages. This language-rich content supports DataCert's commitment to worldwide industry standards and education, marketplace information and product innovations for electronic invoicing and legal spend management technology.
"European corporate law departments recognize the need to track and control outside counsel and vendor spend. In looking for solutions to these problems, companies logically want to do business with a regional presence, a partner in their own backyard," said Jeff Hodge, senior director EMEA, DataCert. "These companies also want to deal with companies and their representatives in their own language. Just as applications and services need to be internationalized and localized, so do a provider's means of communication with its clients, prospects and the market. We believe expansion of our web content to include the Spanish and French languages reflects our international commitment and an appreciation for what the international market needs and wants."
DataCert hosts educational seminars throughout Europe that feature expert panelists from DataCert and Fortuner Global 500 law departments. Sessions and materials are offered in the local language in addition to English. These seminars include a discussion on billing guideline compliance, law firm performance metrics and lessons learned from implementations.
