New Integrated Capability Streamlines eDiscovery and Reduces Risk and Cost

SAN FRANCISCO, CA Thursday, January 24, 2013

Recommind, the leader in unstructured data management, governance and analysis technology, today announced Axcelerate EasyUpload, a unique cloud-based capability for direct transfer of ESI from a corporation to hosted review.

Axcelerate EasyUpload further augments Recommind’s end-to-end Axcelerate eDiscovery suite, which seamlessly covers all aspects of eDiscovery from anticipation of litigation to early case assessment, collection and processing to review, analysis and production, all within a streamlined, fully integrated platform available through customizable combinations of cloud and on-premise options. EasyUpload advances Recommind’s vision of a seamless eDiscovery/information governance “ecosystem” between in-house counsel, outside counsel, and—where appropriate—regulatory authorities across the globe.

Designed to drastically simplify and expedite corporate legal department management of ESI, Axcelerate EasyUpload enables seamless transfer of data from Recommind’s Axcelerate ECA & Collection platform directly into Axcelerate On-Demand, the company’s industry-leading hosted analysis and review platform with predictive coding. With this new offering, corporate counsel can collect data from myriad sources, analyze the documents pre-and post-collection and easily send the information to Axcelerate On-Demand with no additional processing steps or costs. EasyUpload manages this process and allows outside counsel access to ESI faster than ever before.

Key features of Axcelerate EasyUpload include:

  • Secure transfer – Axcelerate EasyUpload allows in-house legal teams to analyze and select data for review and quickly transfer it via a secure connection to a Recommind hosting location.
  • Intelligent learning – Axcelerate EasyUpload intelligently detects new information within an uploaded data set. It recognizes subsequent uploads and quickly incorporates them into Axcelerate Review & Analysis.
  • Fully integrated – Axcelerate EasyUpload is fully integrated with Recommind’s Axcelerate ECA & Collection and Axcelerate Review & Analysis solutions.

Existing Axcelerate ECA & Collection customers will receive Axcelerate EasyUpload as part of their next software upgrade, with nothing more to install or purchase.

“eDiscovery software developers are continually attempting to design integrated platforms capable of performing the various functions of the eDiscovery lifecycle. Many claim their applications provide seamless integration across eDiscovery tasks, but few actually succeed,” said David Horrigan, attorney and analyst for eDiscovery and information governance at 451 Research. “One of the biggest challenges in the process is the need to convert to load files before the review process, a step fraught with substantial risk and cost. We think Recommind is smart to address this integration issue by moving to streamline data transfer between its early case assessment and collection offerings and its hosted analysis and review platform.”

“With Axcelerate EasyUpload, we’re continuing to show the way forward not just in eDiscovery but information governance as well,” said Bob Tennant, CEO, Recommind. “By raising the bar on ESI management and alleviating time and budget pressures on corporate legal departments, we’re reducing legal spend and helping our clients get even more done with less. EasyUpload represents a major step toward the future of eDiscovery and information governance, which only Recommind can deliver: a seamless ecosystem in which corporate counsel securely collect, process, analyze, move and produce ESI inside or outside the firewall.”

Recommind will exhibit Axcelerate EasyUpload, along with its other solutions for eDiscovery, ECA, information governance and analytics at the 2013 LegalTech Conference in New York, Jan. 29-31, booth #2201.
