CaseCentral Named to KMWorld's 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2009) - CaseCentral, the leader in secure, on-demand eDiscovery software for corporate counsel and law firms looking to simplify and take control of eDiscovery, today announced that it has been named one of KMWorld's 100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management for 2009. The annual list, compiled by a group of KM practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors, and their customers and colleagues, recognizes companies with a strong commitment to improvement, customer service, and agile product innovation.

"Each company embodies as part of its culture agile and limber execution of its mission, embracing a spirit of both adaptability and innovation," said Hugh McKellar, KMWorld editor-in-chief. "We congratulate CaseCentral for its commitment to excellence in the field of eDiscovery and for using innovation to serve customers by delivering new capabilities within one of the most comprehensive and effective eDiscovery review platforms on the market."

The KMWorld listing continues CaseCentral's momentum after a strong 2008 and a compelling showing at LegalTech New York, including the Day 2 Keynote, in February. CaseCentral's latest software release represents the next evolution of electronic discovery and signals the emergence of a new kind of software platform that brings together data, content management, process analytics, search and visualization to increase eDiscovery ease-of-use and efficiency, while reducing risk and cost. And, as the only cloud computing-based eDiscovery review software on the market, CaseCentral's deployment costs and on-going maintenance costs are much less than traditional on-premise software deployments.

CaseCentral is the first single matter and multi-matter, multi-party eDiscovery review software to integrate eDiscovery analysis, first-pass review and four corners review in a single software application, eliminating the need to transport data to additional systems for further review and eventual production.

In 2008 CaseCentral introduced the industry's first process analytics, enabling authorized users to receive real-time, quantitative measurements of key eDiscovery process points, providing critical insight into eDiscovery costs, trends and efficiencies. This information is vital for corporate legal and law firms alike to measure cost (per document, per matter, per law firm), efficiency (review time) and effectiveness (review quality) across one or multiple matters. This capability enables quantitative eDiscovery measurement for resource governance, risk and cost oversight, as well as managing matter timelines and production deadlines.

"This recognition by KMWorld Magazine is an honor and a testament to CaseCentral's ability to continue to deliver value in an ever-changing market," said Steve d'Alencon, chief marketing officer, CaseCentral. "CaseCentral has strategically invested in its software products to address the eDiscovery challenges facing companies and law firms today. Given the difficult economic climate and budget restrictions, it is more important than ever for corporations and law firms to optimize their eDiscovery efforts in order to lower their risks and costs. This award reaffirms the commitment we've had to creating a measurable, cost-effective, and repeatable business process for eDiscovery."
