DENVER—Feb. 17, 2012—Catalyst Repository Systems today announced a major extension to its tool set for law firms and corporations involved in litigation. Catalyst is now making the TotalDiscovery.com remote collection service available to its partners and clients, enabling them to collect data from multiple sources and ingest into Catalyst’s review platforms in a defensible, cost-effective manner.
TotalDiscovery.com was developed by BIA, the leader in e-discovery data collections. Catalyst and BIA have a close working relationship that spans half a decade. Both share long-established efficiencies in all their processes developed through years of research and experience.
TotalDiscovery.com is a web-based service that will allow Catalyst partners and clients to collect documents and data relevant to litigation and regulatory examinations in a remote manner without sending people or equipment on-site. Using TotalDiscovery.com, data collections for legal purposes occur in a defensible manner with a few clicks of a mouse – and can occur at anytime, anywhere.
The TotalDiscovery.com Internet application, together with the underlying DiscoveryBOT™ data collection engine, frees legal teams from the traditional burdens of facilitating and managing e-discovery data collections.
In addition to its powerful collection functionality, TotalDiscovery.com is the only web-based tool that allows for true early case assessment by scanning and reporting on data spread throughout the organization and by providing an analysis of the types and volume of data needed to be collected and searched for legal purposes. That information is then used to determine project budgets, scope and legal strategy.
Because TotalDiscovery.com is a web-based (SaaS) product, Catalyst clients no longer are strapped with the burden of spending time and money purchasing and implementing hardware or software to perform critical data preservation tasks.
TotalDiscovery.com is fully integrated into the flagship Catalyst CR as well as the recently released Catalyst Insight?. Catalyst and BIA together offer end-to-end hosted e-discovery that is defensible, scalable and free from traditional limitations. Together, the two companies have collected and hosted data on six of the seven continents.
“BIA and Catalyst have worked extremely successfully together for over eight years, and we’re excited to extend that relationship and experience to our software platforms as well,” said Brian Schrader, president of BIA. “TotalDiscovery.com is the industry’s first SaaS collection solution that is both defensible and incredibly easy to use. The solutions also integrate very nicely with seamless delivery via Catalyst’s FastTrack right to the review platform. With this technology, legal teams can gain control over their legal holds and e-discovery collections in an automated manner while saving money and time.”
“We are excited to offer our clients and partners access to TotalDiscovery.com,” said John Tredennick, founder and CEO of Catalyst. “Having TotalDiscovery.com fully integrated enforces our leadership in cloud-based repositories and end-to-end automation and it greatly expands our partnership with BIA. With both systems cloud-based, clients can be up and running from collection to production in hours without the typical capital or operational expenses and physical limitations."
