Consilio, a Symphony Technology Group (STG) company, and Business Intelligence Associates, Inc. (BIA), global leaders in eDiscovery software and services, announced today that Consilio has become a BIA Platinum Partner and will offer BIA’s TotalDiscovery platform to its customers worldwide. Consilio will employ TotalDiscovery to collect data involved in litigation and regulatory matters from locations throughout the world, then process, produce and host that data at Consilio’s international data centers.
TotalDiscovery is a cloud-based eDiscovery platform that automates identification, preservation and collection of data. Consilio will now use TotalDiscovery to provide clients with legal hold notification, and to provide remote collection from desktops, laptops, servers and external hard drives for those cases that do not require onsite data collection expertise.
“TotalDiscovery’s remote collection toolset allows us to help clients get to early case assessment and full eDiscovery review faster than ever before by removing many of the barriers associated with traditional onsite data collections,” said Todd Horst, Executive Vice President of Consilio. “Our clients are always looking to shorten the time to review, but that’s often difficult given the myriad of pan-regional, national, local and enterprise-specific regulations governing data collection. Our expert forensics team marries our worldwide expertise to a fantastic toolset from BIA that will yield immediate benefits for our clients.”
“We’re excited about the partnership with Consilio because it offers tangible benefits to corporations and law firms, currently challenged by the data identification and gathering processes,” said Alon Israely, who heads BIA’s strategic initiatives. “Besides just accelerating the collections cycle for Consilio’s global client base, BIA technology will help corporations sidestep other expenses typically associated with traditional onsite data collections. With this new capability, Consilio’s clients will experience fewer business interruptions when performing critical eDiscovery tasks. Clients who need to perform data collections quickly and defensibly can do so with fewer burdens on employees or IT staff.
“Our partnership with Consilio continues the expansion of TotalDiscovery globally, and is an excellent example of the product’s strength as a cloud-based eDiscovery platform,” said Israely.
