Last week at the KMWorld 2014 conference in Washington, DC, Step Two Designs out of Australia once again handed out their annual international Intranet Innovations Awards. This year Ogletree Deakins, an international labour and employment law firm based in the U.S., is winner of the Gold Award for Intranet Rework:
ODConnect, Ogletree Deakins’ intranet, was specifically acclaimed for its client-matter sites and search capability, which judges said provided “a rich set of intranet improvements to support lawyers in their everyday work” and demonstrated “an intranet developed with clear priorities and strong business alignment.” The judges also highlighted “really good evidence of time savings, and in an environment where hours are billable, this is meaningful ROI.”
From the Ogletree Deakins press release:
“Our Knowledge Management and Technology departments designed ODConnect to be a single source for firm content that helps the firm’s lawyers and staff service their clients more efficiently and effectively,” said Patrick DiDomenico, director of knowledge management at Ogletree Deakins. “We are honored to receive this recognition and are committed to continued innovation in order to provide additional value and benefit to our clients.”
Patrick DiDomenico, known in the legal Knowledge Management industry for his writings on the LawyerKM blog, was on hand to accept the award. Congratulations to Ogletree’s KM and IT teams.
