Legal Technology Leaders Share Actionable Insights and Best Practices for Legal Information Governance, Risk and Compliance Management

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) - Thirty organizations gathered at Exterro, Inc.'s annual user conference, inFusion, in the Columbia River Gorge to exchange proven methods for increasing efficiency, reducing risks and costs in the litigation process.

"For in-depth coverage of complex topics relevant to e-discovery practitioners and strategists alike, Exterro's inFusion user conference proved to be a valuable return on investment of time," said Dan Klinger, senior manager, Global Information Security, Hershey Company. "Each workshop, general lecture and breakout session provided an interactive learning experience unlike any other, led by e-discovery luminaries from IT, legal and records management."

During the conference, held Sept. 13-14, e-discovery thought leaders attended in-depth sessions, hands-on training, and networking events. Exterro Fusion product experts demonstrated the latest in legal technology innovation and gave attendees a behind-the-scenes look at upcoming Exterro Fusion releases. E-discovery experts hosted interactive panel discussions, workshops and breakout sessions to share business, legal and technology strategies and provide feedback on future product direction.

"I appreciate the way suggestions or product improvements are acted upon by Exterro -- their turnaround time on enhancement requests is very good," said Todd Kiddoo, legal project manager at Deere and Company. "Getting a behind-the-scenes look at Exterro Fusion gave me the utmost confidence that Exterro is catering to me as a customer and a user, and working to make Fusion even more relevant to my business."

"Our annual conference brings together our valued customers -- the best and the brightest from Fortune 500 and Am Law 100 legal and IT departments -- for an open dialogue with Exterro to share input and requirements for future releases," said Exterro President and CEO Bobby Balachandran. "Attending the inFusion conference is also the best way for e-discovery practitioners and managers to learn from one another, make new connections within the industry and discover the newest techniques, products and services to make the most of their Fusion investments."

Exterro's conference featured sessions on multidimensional implementations of Fusion, data mapping, integrations and data migration best practices, improving communications between IT and legal, and many other topics.
