From Identification through Production, Clients to Benefit from the Integration of the Two Companies’ Leading E-Discovery Software and Services
DENVER, Col. and PORTLAND, Ore. – February 22, 2012 – Two of the industry’s leading e-discovery technology companies, Catalyst and Exterro, have partnered to streamline client management of all phases of e-discovery. The two companies have seamlessly tied together their e-discovery collection workflows and review processes by integrating Catalyst’s secure, hosted document repository and sophisticated review and production capabilities with the early case assessment (ECA) and collection strengths of the Exterro Fusion® software suite.
“With its built-in project management and workflow engine that drives data mapping, legal holds, in-house collections and ECA, Exterro is a well-matched partner for Catalyst,” said John Tredennick, Catalyst founder and CEO. “Together, we can now offer our clients a comprehensive array of applications to drive the full e-discovery process with an integrated approach.”
Catalyst’s technology covers the heart of the litigation lifecycle, from processing and analytics through review and production. Exterro Fusion® delivers a 360-degree view into the state of e-discovery efforts, using repeatable workflows to defensibly and cost-effectively manage projects. By leveraging Fusion’s open architecture and flexible integration hub, legal and IT teams can locate, collect, process, analyze, review and produce documents more efficiently, while dramatically reducing the likelihood of errors or delays.
"Integrating the in-house phases of e-discovery delivered by Exterro Fusion with Catalyst’s hosted review and production services delivers tremendous value to our corporate clients,“ said Jim FitzGerald, director of product marketing and strategic alliances for Exterro. “The level of automation and control we are delivering with the integration of the two companies’ offerings is exceptional. Clients can now handle the most complex reviews and productions with built-in workflows to coordinate collection tasks with review and production, as well as monitor results and maintain full visibility when ESI is moved outside the enterprise.”
