Knosys prosecutes KM in Victoria

The Victorian Office of Public Prosecutions (OPP) has entered into an agreement with one of Knosys’ resellers for a 250-user deployment of the Knosys Knowledge Platform. 

The multi-year contract follows a highly successful Proof of Concept (“POC”) implemented in June and evaluated by OPP during the following months. The license revenue from this opportunity is expected to exceed $A150,000 over a 3 year period.

The OPP is Victoria’s largest criminal legal practice. The OPP prosecutes serious offences in Victoria’s County and Supreme Courts and conducts criminal appeals in the County Court, the Court of Appeal and the High Court of Australia.
John Thompson, CEO of Knosys, said: “The Knosys knowledge platform will help the OPP’s solicitors to better prepare and undertake legal cases both in and out of court. This is being achieved via delivery of new and dynamic policy, procedure, research and training content to the legal practice. 

"In concert with providing engaging content, Knosys tools are contextually presented in the form of decision trees, calculators, and process guidance. External content is contextually surfaced into the Knosys platform using Knosys’ market leading information virtualisation capabilities. Over ten internal and external content sources will be integrated into the OPP’s Knosys platform. This will create a superior user experience for the OPP’s solicitors, with Knosys becoming the trusted one-stop-shop for knowledge, presented simply in a single web user interface.”

The implementation of Knosys at the OPP required no coding, no desktop/device deployment, and allowed the OPP to retire a legacy system in the process. 

Knosys will be used at the OPP on desktops and on iPads. The mobile optimised user interface means that OPP solicitors will be able to call up the Knosys platform while in court to either refer to their case work, or quickly find the answer to a question on-the-fly.
