Exterro Fusion® Expands In-House Review and Goes Mobile to Improve Custodian Compliance

New Upgrades to Exterro's E-Discovery Software Suite to Make It Easier for Custodians to Comply With Legal Hold Obligations and Users to Manage More of the Review Process In-House

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2013) - Exterro Inc., the leading provider of workflow-driven e-discovery software, today announced two key advancements to the Exterro Fusion® software suite. Exterro's Fusion Compliance Portal now features a mobile portal to make it easier for custodians to comply with legal hold requests while in the field. The review capabilities in Fusion Zeta™, Exterro's advanced data management application, have also been expanded to enable legal teams to manage more of the review process in-house. Both advancements are being showcased this week in Exterro's booth (#444) at the ILTA 36th Annual Conference taking place in Las Vegas.

"We are constantly looking at ways to help our corporate clients reduce e-discovery costs and improve efficiencies when determining future technology advancements to add to Exterro Fusion," said Ajith Samuel, executive vice president of process innovation at Exterro. "The unique flexibility of the Exterro Fusion Platform and interoperability of the suite's applications enable us to rapidly add functionality on both the right- and left-hand side of the EDRM. These newest upgrades are a direct reflection of our continued innovations and ability to anticipate market requirements."

The newest advancements added to Exterro Fusion will help clients to reduce risks and improve efficiencies by:

  • Improving Mobile Custodian Compliance - Fusion Compliance Portal consolidates the information custodians and data stewards need to comply with legal hold obligations into an intuitive web portal that is optimized for both personal computers and mobile devices. Custodians can now review and acknowledge legal holds, ask questions and complete interviews from smart phones, tablets and other personal devices.
  • Bringing More Review Controls In-House - The enhanced review features in Fusion Zeta allow e-discovery review managers to batch documents and direct them to the appropriate review resources, depending on their nature or value, including outside counsel, in-house staff or contract reviewers. This new feature provides visibility into key statistics, such as reviewer productivity, to allow managers to select the most cost-effective review option on each project or document set.

"As the volume and complexity of corporate data accelerates, enterprises continue to struggle with the mountains of information that are potentially relevant during e-discovery," said David Horrigan, analyst on e-discovery and information governance 451 Research, a division of The 451 Group. "Companies require advanced technologies that can keep up with these requirements. Exterro has a thorough understanding of the market and a solid corporate customer foundation to address this need."
