PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - September 07, 2016) - Exterro® Inc., the preferred provider of software specifically designed for in-house legal and IT teams at Global 2000 and AmLaw 200 organizations, today announced that Swift Transportation Company ('Swift') has selected Exterro software solutions as a part of its Legal Department's initiative to streamline and automate their departmental processes.
"The Legal Department's philosophy is as a member of the business, we should constantly be looking for ways to improve our efficiencies and ways to bring value to the organization. It has become obvious that in order to better serve the company, we need to introduce legal technology such as the Exterro platform," said Rachel Monti, Swift's Vice President of Legal Administration & Loss Prevention.
Swift is adopting Exterro solutions to help automate what is now a largely manual process of managing legal holds and employee movements. With Exterro Legal Hold, Swift is planning to effectively and efficiently manage their legal hold process in order to navigate the myriad of discovery obligations at the state and federal levels. "As technology keeps growing, expanding and advancing, it makes your business fantastic, and yet, from the data preservation side, it creates a moving target," said Monti.
By implementing Exterro Employee Change Monitor, Swift is planning to reduce the risk of spoliation due to employee transfers and terminations in their workforce. "With our current manual process, it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to manage employee movement in a company this large with such a dynamic and fast moving workforce," said Monti. "The addition of Exterro's Employee Change Monitor is going to fundamentally change a lot of the way the work occurs on our Legal team and will help automate a number of our compliance activities."
"We are extremely pleased to be working with Swift as a new client," said Bill Piwonka, CMO, Exterro. "At Exterro, we fundamentally believe that when organizations manage e-discovery as a business process, they are able to better optimize their operations, reduce costs and risk, and deliver more value to their company. Automating and orchestrating all the manual tasks that have consumed their team in the past will enable the Legal team at Swift to focus on the key aspects of their roles and better support their colleagues across the business."
