MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — July 12, 2010 — Clearwell Systems, Inc., a leader in intelligent e-discovery, today announced the launch of iClearwell, the industry’s first e-discovery companion application available on the iPhone and iPad. iClearwell meets the evolving needs of the increasingly mobile workforce by providing secure connectivity to the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform, giving administrators instant access to their cases on-the-go and allowing increased speed of responsiveness, remote flexibility, and greater control over the e-discovery process.
“One of the easiest ways to drive workforce productivity is to provide application access to remote and distributed employees,” said Brian Babineau, senior consulting analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. “This is especially true in electronic discovery, where deadlines are increasingly aggressive. By providing access to its robust application and facilitating increased collaboration within the electronic discovery process, iClearwell allows a unique flexibility to manage cases remotely, generating substantial time savings in completing initial analysis and first pass reviews. These are benefits that companies cannot afford to pass up.”
iClearwell allows users to quickly view the status of their cases, email critical statistics to the team, and manage key tasks such as production and export, increasing administrators’ ability to quickly respond to case needs. The application also enables case administrators to start, stop or view the status of any post-processing job, or email log files from the iPhone or iPad. The ability to remotely monitor the case team’s activity, view processing progress and examine real-time processing statistics or de-duplication rates saves time and resources to help further streamline the e-discovery process.
“E-discovery is an inherently complex business process, and with the growth of the mobile workforce, it will become increasingly beneficial to have the ability to manage cases remotely in order to maintain fluidity among the entire case team,” said Kamal Shah, VP of products and marketing at Clearwell. “With the release of iClearwell, we are able to arm Clearwell administrators with increased responsiveness and greater control by allowing them the flexibility to respond immediately, anytime, anywhere as they work to meet critical e-discovery deadlines.”
The Clearwell E-Discovery Platform is fully operational in less than 25 minutes and provides users with immediate visibility into case facts, significantly accelerating early case assessment. Clearwell’s Transparent Search, metadata filters, and people analytics enable users to quickly and defensibly eliminate irrelevant documents and false positives, lowering processing costs and reducing review workload. The product’s discussion threading and concept clustering capabilities display documents in context, further increasing review throughput. In addition, the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform automatically tracks all actions on case documents throughout the e-discovery workflow, ensuring a defensible e-discovery process.
iClearwell is now generally available in the iTunes store.
