Chicago, IL and Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) February 1, 2009
Prism Litigation Technology, a recognized leader in the delivery of litigation based consulting and discovery management solutions, today announced that it has partnered with WorkProducts to offer customers the leading Evidence Lifecycle Management (ELM) solution, MatterSpace®. This partnership enables Prism to offer predictable custodian-based pricing for data preservation and collection, litigation holds, culling, de-duplication and tagging of electronically stored information (ESI) of potential evidentiary value. Recent engagements have shown that the custodian-based pricing coupled with the MatterSpace software solution can equate to a 60-80% cost savings over traditional gigabyte or per page pricing models.
MatterSpace is a highly secure data management tool for corporations and law firms. MatterSpace crawls the corporate network for specifically targeted employees and relevant information sources regardless of where the employees and files are located. Matterspace identifies, preserves, collects, de-duplicates and culls e-mail and native data files. MatterSpace facilitates collaboration between corporate and legal counsel to track litigation holds, meet preservation requirements and assure custodian adherence with evidentiary requests. Through automated, auditable and repeatable MatterSpace processes, legal professionals can meet discovery deadlines in a defensible, cost-effective and timely manner.
"Our partnership with Prism provides customers with the ability to automate the preservation management for thousands of employees and terabytes of data", said Steve Lilley, Founder / CEO of WorkProducts. "MatterSpace, through the Evidence Lifecycle Management (ELM) discipline, bridges the gap between corporate information management and evidence management, providing legal counsel, information technologists, and security personnel, a standardized platform to prepare for matter-specific Meet and Confers and solve discovery production challenges in an automated and compliant fashion".
"Our clients continue to struggle with the unpredictability and rising costs associated with the collection and processing of electronic data," said Mandi Ross, Prism's CEO. "With MatterSpace, we are able to offer our clients custodian-based pricing that allows them to manage the discovery life cycle with a predictable budgetary model from the inception of a matter, rather than its conclusion. With the burgeoning costs of litigation along with current economic conditions, the timing could not be better for a new strategy and solution for streamlining data and discovery management."
WorkProducts and Prism jointly publish a monthly case law update that includes information on how MatterSpace can be used to benefit any litigation.
