Streamlining legal with Custodian for Legal


Network Rail is the latest in a long line of big-name organizations to take up Custodian for Legal from Repstor (www.repstor.com) and Konexo (www.konexoglobal.com), will use the system across its legal team, for everyday matter lifecycle management.

Developed in collaboration with Eversheds Sutherland’s newly rebranded alternative legal and compliance services division, Konexo, Custodian for Legal provides Network Rail with matter-centric document and email management as well as matter lifecycle management from intake and triage.

Improving collaboration is high on Network Rail’s priority list for its legal team, to progress matters more swiftly and effectively.  Custodian for Legal will provide a powerful aid here, particularly thanks to its information compliance controls around matter lifecycle management. Other requirements include introducing greater consistency and efficiency into the way its legal team operates.

The software’s popularity is linked not only to its intuitive ease of use, and the fact that it builds on organisations’ existing investments in Office 365, but also – significantly – to its origins. Designed specifically to meet the needs of legal teams, with direct input from Konexo’s own legal experts, the application is known for unprecedented user acceptance and impressive ROI.

“We are immensely proud of our affiliation with Konexo, and we are excited about the next chapter as Konexo expands its alternative legal services business, which puts technology right at the heart of service transformation,” says Sheila Gormley, Director of Business Development at Repstor,  

“We continue to invest heavily in our Custodian platform, in line with evolving market needs and advances in technology,” she adds. “For instance, clients can now access Repstor Mobile, while Custodian for Microsoft Teams allows users to exploit the full potential of MS Teams in a controlled, manageable way, without risk of undermining organisations’ information compliance controls.”

The win with Network Rail follows similar successes with National Grid, IATA, Brewin Dolphin, UK Power Networks and Anthony Gold which have also standardised on Custodian for Legal from Repstor and Konexo Global.

“This is yet another prestigious win for Custodian for Legal, coinciding with our rebranding and the launch of the new Konexo web site,” says Graham Richardson, Head of Konexo Global.  “Our partnership with Repstor continues to go from strength to strength, and this is down not just to our combined commitment to solving practical everyday productivity issues for in-house and private legal teams, but also the shift in the market to technology-enabled service efficiency.  In the digital age, legal departments need to move with the times to meet business targets and add new value for clients. Custodian for Legal helps them do that.”
