Kira Systems announced today (9 August) the availability of the first fully featured version of its platform API. The upgraded platform API allows firms to tailor Kira to their unique workflow needs and more fully integrate Kira with other software tools.
Since its launch in 2014, Kira has steadily become a fundamental part of the contract review workflow at large firms around the world such as DLA Piper, Fenwick & West, and Womble Carlyle in the US, Freshfields and Clifford Chance in the UK, and Ashurst and Allens in Australia. Kira said that the upgraded API is being released in response to client demands for more flexibility to embed Kira into their day-to-day operations. During its beta phase, customers used the Kira API in a number of ways that included: building intranet dashboards to report on Kira activity, exporting metadata from contracts into other systems for document assembly, and integration to expert systems like Neota Logic that support additional document processing activities.
Jonathan Talbot, Director of IT Enterprise Systems at DLA Piper, said: “Kira has become a core technology in the corporate practice at DLA Piper globally, with hundreds of users having completed hundreds of projects over the past year. We are excited about the API improvements and look forward to integrating Kira even more deeply into our transactional practices.”
Dr. Alexander Hudek, Kira System’s CTO and Co-Founder added:“Kira Systems believes in supporting the changing technical and business needs of our customers. This API release will enhance the experience of Kira’s rapidly growing user community by empowering the technical teams that support them to build out new workflows and integrations with their existing IT environment.”
Kira, which is currently being used by more than 200 firms on over a thousand concurrent projects monthly.
