Siemens Selects Recommind for Seamless eDiscovery

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 21, 2012) - Recommind, the leader in predictive information management software, today announced that Siemens Corporation, a U.S. subsidiary of Siemens AG, the global provider of healthcare, energy, industry and infrastructure technology, has selected Recommind's Axcelerate® eDiscovery suite for next-generation eDiscovery. Built on Recommind's patented CORE® technology, Axcelerate eDiscovery is the world's only seamless eDiscovery solution providing preservation, collection, processing, ECA, review and analysis all within one purpose-built platform available on premise or in the cloud for maximum efficiency in the eDiscovery process.

Amid tightening regulation and steadily increasing volumes of corporate data, enterprises are bringing advanced eDiscovery capabilities in-house to reduce expenses, mitigate risk and improve their control over the eDiscovery process. Siemens Corporation is the latest enterprise to select Axcelerate eDiscovery as its in-house eDiscovery platform, favoring its highly scalable architecture, fully integrated, single-platform approach, robust analytics and unparalleled Predictive Coding capabilities.

"After a thorough competitive review, we chose Recommind's integrated Axcelerate eDiscovery platform to expedite collection and review of information," said John Schwab, Senior Counsel of Siemens Corporation. "We were impressed, in particular, with Recommind's Predictive Coding technology and foreign language support."

Axcelerate ECA & Collection has revolutionized early case assessment and ESI collection by delivering new levels of accuracy, precision and comprehensiveness, eliminating third-party processing costs and enabling enterprises to quickly assess risks and costs from the outset of a matter. Axcelerate Review & Analysis is the only eDiscovery review platform with Predictive Analytics, which automatically categorizes, tags and identifies key documents; Predictive Coding, a patented combination of Recommind's groundbreaking technology and workflow that uses input from a knowledgeable attorney to automatically assess document responsiveness, privilege and issue relation; and Predictive Sampling, which provides an integrated sampling process for quality control and defensibility of the computer-assisted review process.

"The skyrocketing growth of corporate data has made eDiscovery a critical concern for the global enterprise," said Bob Tennant, CEO, Recommind. "Identifying, preserving, collecting, analyzing and producing relevant documents using point solutions has become unacceptably difficult and error-prone. That's why large enterprises are turning to Axcelerate eDiscovery, the market's only seamless eDiscovery platform, to make the eDiscovery process far more accurate, consistent and simple to manage. As leading-edge companies like Siemens have discovered, Axcelerate eDiscovery not only helps control eDiscovery costs and improves their bottom line, but also makes them more agile and responsive, giving them a strategic advantage in the marketplace."
