“The introduction of Index Engines' tape analysis technology in the market, coupled with high service partner adoption, gives corporations an unprecedented opportunity to cost effectively manage the risks of dormant data liability, once and for all,” said Richard E. Davis, director of Litigation Risk Management Services for Constantine & Aborn Advisory Services LLC, a leading provider of world class proactive e-discovery cost containment strategies, process management and records retention services. “This bodes well for records retention managers as well as corporate legal and IT departments everywhere.”
“New Federal Rules of Civil Procedure have significantly increased the volume of relevant evidence data that must be collected, and yet the time allocated to produce this evidence continues to shrink,” said Tim Williams, CEO of Index Engines. “By using the Index Engines Enterprise Discovery Platform, our Litigation Ready partners are processing data faster and more efficiently than ever before. This has enabled them to provide litigation support on cases that was not possible prior to using our enterprise discovery technology.”
