WorkProducts Announces Webinar on Automating Information Governance With eDiscovery Software

Program to Focus on Ensuring and Accelerating eDiscovery Compliance Through Evidence Lifecycle Management

CHANTILLY, VA--(Marketwire - November 17, 2009) - WorkProducts, the revolutionary provider of the first end-to-end Microsoft SharePoint:FAST ESP simplified eDiscovery software product - MatterSpace® ELM, announced today that it will sponsor the second in a series of webcasts showcasing eDiscovery software trends -- "Automating Information Governance."

This webinar will highlight how a new eDiscovery software platform automates the entire process of search, retrieval and preservation of digital content for attorneys involved in civil litigation cases. The software product removes the uncertainty and incompleteness associated with current employee-based, manual tasks -- producing true information compliance at the outset of the case with total confidence.

The program will be offered on two dates:

Tuesday, November 24th at 12:00-12:45 pm EST and again on Wednesday, December 2nd at 12:00-12:45 pm EST.

"Attorneys engaged in civil litigation understand the challenges inherent in eDiscovery: too little time to identify and preserve the relevant electronic data... too much reliance on employees to manually do all the work... and too many opportunities to miss crucial items among growing volumes of digital data," said Steve Lilley, founder and CEO, WorkProducts. "This program will show how the MatterSpace® ELM software now removes the risk of failure to properly identify and preserve vital electronic information at the outset of the case to companies involved in legal disputes."

The keynote presenter will be Pete Pepiton, Attorney and Information Governance Consultant, and former eDiscovery Solutions Director at CA. He will discuss emerging 'Best Practice in Preservation and Collection' efforts and how some organizations involved in litigation are using technology to accomplish these tasks, while minimizing workforce involvement. Additionally, he will describe how leading companies are able to reduce their information stores as a byproduct of their evidence lifecycle process. He will touch on recent court cases and other developments that illustrate on these points.

Joining Mr. Pepiton on the program will be WorkProducts founder and CEO, Steve Lilley. He will discuss how software is changing the way organizations involved in lawsuits are moving past the previously disjointed and non-integrated approaches for forensic collection, legal hold notification, preservation and early case assessment management to mitigate risk of court sanctions and disputes by opposing counsel.

Additionally, the webinar will feature a brief demo of the MatterSpace® ELM product by Shawn Owens, VP Product Management, WorkProducts. He will point out how the software creates an iterative process for Evidence Lifecycle Management preservation, communication and digital data authentication.

The program is geared to attorneys, paralegals, legal assistants, eDiscovery managers, litigation support managers, corporate general counsel and records information managers.
