About Us

We’ve been in the document automation industry for over 20 years and grew frustrated with the options that were available.  Either they were too complicated to use or didn’t do enough.

In December 2018 we started development and in July of 2019, we had our first clients.  It has been a fun ride and an amazing product with amazing customers.

Our Vision

Knackly leads the software industry by making DDPM accessible to businesses of all sizes, allowing any business to automate documents, data, and related processes using established, open standards.

Our Mission

Make best-in-class Document Data and Process Management (DDPM) software available at a fair price to businesses of any size, maintaining industry-leading care for the interests of our customers, employees, and stakeholders.

Our Team

Lowell Stewart, Chief Technology Officer, has eaten, slept and breathed document assembly and automation for more than two decades: first as a software engineer helping to build and refine HotDocs®, then leading its development through a decade during which its revenues grew by 4x, the product focus moved from the desktop to the enterprise data center and then into the Cloud, and HotDocs was acquired by AbacusNext.

After leaving Abacus, Lowell began to rethink many of the fundamental design decisions of a document assembly system — starting with its stubborn focus on the “document” itself. In concept, a document isn’t nearly as important as either the expert knowledge or the data needed to draft it: so automating the capture of those items has become the new focus of his efforts.
