MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — August 31, 2010 — Clearwell Systems, Inc., a leader in intelligent e-discovery, today announced that GameFly, the leading video game rental service, has deployed the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform for its in-house e-discovery strategy. GameFly will use Clearwell for pre-processing, processing, analysis and review in order to significantly reduce the e-discovery time, resources, and costs required in response to litigation and regulatory inquiries.
“We used Clearwell on our discrimination complaint against the United States Postal Service, which demanded very short response time to produce the relevant dataset,” said Neil Seth, SVP of Product Development and Technology at GameFly. “Analyzing and reviewing the data for this case — in only three business days — could have been a daunting task. Instead, with Clearwell’s intuitive user interface, rapid processing, and transparent search capabilities, we gained visibility into the case facts quickly and were able to meet the appointed deadlines without draining company resources or budget.”
On the recent case, GameFly used Clearwell’s Processing and Analysis Module to perform early case assessment and defensibly eliminate irrelevant documents and false positives, lowering processing costs and reducing review workload. The company also used Clearwell’s Review Module, which eliminated the otherwise time-consuming and manual-intensive steps of creating a load file and then uploading it into a separate review tool. As a result, GameFly was able to support a rapid, cost effective, and defensible e-discovery workflow.
“It is not uncommon for companies to be required to respond to an e-discovery inquiry within a matter of mere days or weeks. Without a proactive, in-house e-discovery process in place, this can put a significant strain on time and budget,” said Kamal Shah, VP of products and marketing at Clearwell Systems. “Clearwell enabled GameFly to hit the ground running on a time-sensitive case and gain in-house control over its e-discovery process. Enterprises that similarly institute such an approach can significantly reduce their costs and risks associated with e-discovery.”
