CaseCentral Ranked as a Top Provider in the 2008 Socha-Gelbmann Electronic Discovery Survey

Pioneer of On-Demand eDiscovery Listed Among Industry Leaders for Second Year

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - CaseCentral, the leading secure SaaS platform for corporations looking to take control of eDiscovery, today announced that it has been ranked as a "Top Provider" in five categories of the prestigious 2008 Socha-Gelbmann Electronic Discovery survey. The rankings show the popularity of CaseCentral's Evidence Management Platform for eDiscovery with corporate legal departments and outside counsel as a result of CaseCentral's 14+ years of experience with customers using the CaseCentral platform to manage eDiscovery review, analysis and production.

"From our interviews with corporate counsels and law firms, there is a real need to break from the traditional, costly approach focused on a single matter and instead build a repeatable, cost-efficient eDiscovery process," said George Socha Jr., Esq., founder of Socha Consulting. "CaseCentral is well positioned to provide technology that can support these new approaches."

CaseCentral was named a Top 10 Service Provider in the "Review," "Production" and "Experience" categories. The company was also named a Top Provider in the "Corporate Rankings" and "Service Provider" categories. The 2008 Socha-Gelbmann survey rankings are developed through an extensive ranking model based on more than 350 qualitative and quantitative factors measured by independent technology consultants.

"It is an honor to again receive Top Provider status in this year's Socha-Gelbmann survey," said Steve d'Alencon, Chief Marketing Officer, CaseCentral.
