Exterro Provides Integration With Recommind for Legal Process Execution

Industry-Leading Solutions Seamlessly Deliver Rigorous, Proactive Legal Holds for E-Discovery

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - August 23, 2010) -  ILTA -- Booth No. 908 -- Exterro, Inc., the leading provider of legal governance, risk and compliance management solutions, today announced the seamless integration of Recommind's Axcelerate™ ECA & Collection with Exterro Fusion e-discovery and legal hold workflow management solution suite. Exterro's automated Fusion legal process management solutions, in orchestration with Axcelerate ECA & Collection, ensures clients have the collaboration, notification, preservation, ECA, collection, processing and review capabilities required to defensibly meet today's complex litigation requirements.

Today's legal departments must communicate effectively with both custodians and IT managers in order to effectively scope and implement litigation holds and conduct collection tasks. The unified legal and IT approach provided by Exterro and Recommind enables companies to manage holds, precisely predict and scope discovery costs, determine early case strategy, streamline collections, eliminate rework and human error, and review and produce less data.

"Legal hold process management and enforcement is now a mission-critical application. Organizations need to manage both the notification process in addition to executing the actual preservation of information," said Barry Murphy, Founding Principal of Murphy Insights. "Exterro's solution supports customers that need a quick-to-deploy simple notification management tool, as well as those that need automated collection and preservation such as enabled by the integration with Recommind."

Exterro Fusion simplifies the process of creating a legal hold, identifying custodians and data, and issuing notifications.

Integration with Recommind's Axcelerate ECA & Collection wraps in the legal process, including preservation, collection, ECA, processing, review and production needed to manage the legal hold process and control costs from end to end. Exterro Fusion discovery workflow monitors progress and completes the legal process loop.
