Clearwell Delivers Cost-Effective and Defensible In-House E-Discovery

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - April 20, 2009) - Clearwell Systems, Inc., a leader in intelligent e-discovery, today announced that Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. has deployed the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform to streamline the in-house portion of the discovery process.

"In efforts to streamline our in-house electronic discovery processes, we recently employed the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform," said Eric Lieber, director of legal technology at Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. "In doing so, we aim to make our review and production processes more efficient."

The Clearwell E-Discovery Platform is fully operational in less than 25 minutes and provides users with immediate visibility into case facts, significantly accelerating early case assessment. Clearwell's Transparent Search, metadata filters, and people analytics enable users to quickly and defensibly eliminate irrelevant documents and false positives, lowering processing costs, and reducing review workload. The product's discussion threading and concept clustering capabilities display documents in context, further increasing review throughput. Responsive documents can be produced or seamlessly uploaded into litigation support databases via EDRM-compliant XML and other major load file formats. All actions are tracked via Clearwell's case management and reporting capabilities, ensuring a more efficient and defensible e-discovery process.

"The e-discovery expense and workload will continue to increase as the amount of electronically stored information (ESI) grows. To cope with this, many large companies like Toyota Motor Sales are choosing Clearwell to better manage their e-discovery costs," said Aaref Hilaly, president and CEO at Clearwell Systems. "Clearwell provides an integrated processing, analysis and review product that is delivering immediate, significant and much needed cost savings in today's economic environment."
