Cisco Turns to Recommind for End-to-End eDiscovery

Axcelerate™ eDiscovery Helps Cisco Refine Processes and Dramatically Improve Efficiency

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - December 15, 2010) - Recommind, the leader in predictive information management software, today announced that Cisco has implemented Recommind's Axcelerate™ Review & Analysis as its next-generation approach to eDiscovery. Cisco chose Axcelerate Review & Analysis as part of a more strategic approach to eDiscovery and regulatory compliance. Axcelerate Review & Analysis is Recommind's industry-leading solution for defensible automated document review.

Axcelerate's unique Predictive Coding™ technology and workflow automatically analyzes, prioritizes and codes all documents in a collection, helping Cisco dramatically expedite the document review process, thereby slashing eDiscovery timelines. In addition, Axcelerate's Predictive Analytics™ capabilities give Cisco deep insight into ESI by automatically categorizing documents and enabling deep analysis of the data from the outset of the review process.

"As we started to refine our approach to eDiscovery, we quickly realized that we needed to improve our internal capabilities. Implementing powerful, flexible software from Recommind has made our entire organization more nimble and better prepared," said Daniel Black, Senior Manager, Legal at Cisco. "Our search criterion was very specific. We wanted an end-to-end solution that didn't require a massive overhaul of people or processes and Recommind stood out in their ability to meet these demands. Axcelerate Review & Analysis gives us a strong foundation to develop and deploy strategic document-review processes worldwide."

Axcelerate Review & Analysis also offers extensive file type support, streamlining the process of getting data into the system and greatly reducing the need to pre-process data. With Axcelerate, Cisco is able to process, review, analyze and produce documents simultaneously without interrupting reviewers, improving efficiency and flexibility along the eDiscovery process.

"The challenges Cisco faces are familiar to any enterprise or law firm that does business in today's data-driven, highly regulatory and litigious environment," said Bob Tennant, CEO, Recommind. "With Axcelerate Review & Analysis, Cisco has immediately improved their eDiscovery capabilities and will be able to take advantage of its scalability as they move forward. Not only does this make eDiscovery more efficient and ultimately more defensible, but it enables Cisco to become more proactive and strategic, benefits that affect the entire organization. Cisco is one of the most innovative and important companies in the world, and we're proud to add its name to our rapidly expanding list of enterprise customers."
