Company Receives Highest Recognition Level Granted to Clearwell Systems E-Discovery Service Provider Partners

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - September 1, 2009) - Encore Discovery Solutions, a knowledge-based provider of electronic discovery and related services, announced today that it has become a Gold Certified Partner of Clearwell Systems, Inc., a leader in intelligent e-discovery. This status enables Encore to provide the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform to clients on a hosted basis and leverage the product for processing, analysis and review of electronically stored information for client cases.

"Encore has deep expertise and experience deploying Clearwell," said Donald W. Myers, E-Discovery counsel for law firm Littler Mendelson, the 700-attorney leader in labor and employment litigation. "Their support has been invaluable to reducing discovery costs for our corporate clients across the nation."

As a Clearwell Systems Gold Certified Partner, Encore has met a rigorous set of requirements and proven the expertise needed to help implement technologies that match their customers' needs. Partners of this status work closely with Clearwell for technical and marketing resources, training, and support.

"Encore has been an outstanding partner for us, and for its clients," said Steve Rapp, director of business development for Clearwell Systems. "They provide exceptional service, and our mutual clients benefit from their experience." All Clearwell-related work is managed and executed by Encore's dedicated Clearwell Support professionals, who are trained to anticipate problems before they occur and quickly assess and handle any data anomalies that may appear. The team is available to Encore's clients 24/7.

Through the benefits of its experience and expertise using Clearwell, Encore allows clients to scale up very quickly when necessary. "We can load and index in excess of 100 gigabytes in a single day," said Kevin Nugent, Regional Director at Encore and manager of its relationship with Clearwell. Encore's clients can also leverage the company's new features such as full Unicode compliance and Clearwell Mobile up to 45 days sooner than the rest of the market.

"As a leader in data minimization, we are strong believers in Clearwell's ability to help our clients better understand their cases and data early in the process and to reduce discovery costs," said Greg Mazares, President and CEO of Encore. "We are pleased to have earned Gold Certified Partner status and look forward to continuing a relationship that has been very beneficial to our clients."
