Atlanta, GA - After launching just last year, ThreadKM, the industry-leading collaboration and knowledge management platform, has already been nominated for the upcoming International Legal Technology Association's Distinguished Peer Awards. ThreadKM received the nomination to the Vendor Awards Shortlist for Innovative Solution Provider of the Year. This celebration of the industry's top professionals and companies is one of the highlights of ILTA's annual conference, ILTACON, held this year in National Harbor, MD on August 28 - September 1.

ThreadKM launched its eponymous platform at ILTACON last year, embarking on a mission to improve collaboration and reduce email among mid-size and large law firms. "When we introduced ThreadKM last year, we could not have predicted the incredible response by the legal technology community," said Dan Hauck, CEO at ThreadKM. "Being nominated for Innovation Solution Provider of the Year is a tremendous honor that highlights both the value of addressing this problem and the effectiveness of ThreadKM as a solution. We especially want to thank our customers - some of the top firms in the industry - for helping build a new vision of collaboration."

Email overload ranks as one of the top technology challenges faced by lawyers year after year, stifling productivity as time is wasted managing outsized inboxes. These emails are often littered with attachments, making it difficult for attorneys to manage, track and discuss work-product.

ThreadKM addresses this challenge by introducing a matter-centric version of "team chat," the wildly popular technology found in business applications like Slack and Hipchat. ThreadKM lets attorneys converse in dynamic, ongoing conversations called Threads. All of the discussions, files, links and tasks are tracked in one shared, searchable space for each matter.

What separates ThreadKM from other applications, however, is its unique focus on the legal industry. ThreadKM is designed not only to operate on-premises or in the cloud, but it provides deep integrations with leading document management solutions, ethical walls systems, and more. This approach further enhances the value and overall utilization of these technologies commonly found in law firms.

The winners of the ILTA Distinguished Peer Awards will be announced during a special dinner at ILTACON on August 31, 2016 at the Gaylord National Harbor Conference Center.

To check out ThreadKM during the conference, stop by Booth 1031, schedule a private demo session, or attend the Solution Spotlight session featuring ThreadKM on Tuesday, Aug. 30 at 11 in Annapolis 1 & 2.
