Law Technology News Names Catalyst CR Finalist for Best EDD System

Catalyst's Sub-Second Search Speed Against Large Documents Volumes and Simple but Powerful Interface Recognized by LTN Readers as Compelling Features for Large Scale Electronic Discovery Review Systems

DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 17, 2007 --Catalyst Repository Systems, a leading provider of web-based repository software for case, deal and electronic document management, announced today that Catalyst CR has been selected as a finalist for the top Electronic Data Discovery Systems by the readers of Law Technology News.

"We are especially honored to be a finalist for this award because it reflects the views of our partners and customers who use Catalyst CR," said John Tredennick, CEO of Catalyst Repository Systems. "This vote is a testament that CR's functionality, speed and scalability are delivering compelling value to law firms, corporations and insurance companies."

Last month, Catalyst released CR 6.0 (Grid Edition), the first grid-based litigation support and document review platform. Powered by FAST InStream™ search technology, audited benchmark tests show CR routinely delivers sub-second response times for complex searches against 15 million documents -- up to 750 terms, including field, text, date range, bates range, and proximity searches. This unmatched speed and scalability, coupled with CR's feature-rich set, enables corporations, insurers and their lawyers to achieve new levels of productivity in the review, production and reuse of electronic documents and related metadata.

Customer reactions to CR 6.0 have been highly favorable. "We are very impressed with CR 6.0 and the value that it is going to let us deliver to our clients," said Warren DiDonato, EVP of Everest Technologies, a leading EDD Services Provider that participated in the beta testing of CR 6.0. "This massive breakthrough in speed and scalability, combined with the rock solid features and ease-of-use that CR already offers, means that our clients will achieve unprecedented levels of productivity in even the largest document productions."
