MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — May 11, 2010 — Clearwell Systems, Inc., a leader in intelligent e-discovery, today announced the availability of pre-built templates in its latest product release, the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform Version 5.5. These templates incorporate best practice workflows gathered from hundreds of enterprises, government agencies and law firms who have successfully streamlined their e-discovery processes using Clearwell. As a result, IT and legal teams looking to bring the e-discovery process in-house for the first time, or with limited resources, can now do so in a defensible, cost-effective manner.

“As more enterprises make the strategic decision to lower costs by bringing e-discovery in-house, it is important that they address e-discovery as a critical business process,” said Kamal Shah, VP of Products and Marketing at Clearwell Systems. “This requires striking the right balance between strong processes and market-leading technologies. With Clearwells latest release, our new customers can stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before them and take advantage of the cumulative best practices gleaned from hundreds of organizations and across thousands of cases.”
