“Given the growth in the volume of electronically stored information and the importance of handling this information efficiently and defensibly in the event of litigation, e-discovery is vital to the scope of knowledge management,” said Hugh McKellar, editor in chief of KMWorld. “We recognize Clearwell Systems based on its uniquely innovative search, analysis and review capabilities and its industry leadership in serving its enterprise customers’ needs in a highly effective e-discovery product.”

The Clearwell E-Discovery Platform is an enterprise-class solution that was purpose built for e-discovery. The Clearwell E-Discovery Platform manages all phases of e-discovery, from identification through production, in a single product. As a result, enterprises, government agencies and law firms are able to streamline workflows and achieve significant reductions in the costs and duration of e-discovery. Clearwell offers unmatched scalability, has filed over a dozen patents, and continues to introduce innovative features into its end-to-end product including:

  • Transparent Search, which enables a more defensible, interactive and efficient e-discovery search process for both keyword and concept searches.
  • Discussion Threads, which visually link together all related emails in search results into chronological threads.
  • Multi-Keyword Search, which allows users to run up to 100 simultaneous searches on emails and documents.

“It is an honor to be recognized by KMWorld for our work in enabling global enterprises, government agencies and law firms to take greater control over and reduce the cost of the e-discovery process,” said Sean Wilcox, senior director of marketing at Clearwell Systems. “As e-discovery increasingly becomes a core business process, Clearwell will continue to lead the way in product innovation and provide our customers with the best-in-class e-discovery solution.”

Clearwell has received awards, accolades and recognition from many of the industry’s leading authorities including the Socha-Gelbmann E-Discovery Survey, International Legal Technology Association (ILTA), the Cowen Group, Law Technology News, Red Herring, KMWorld, SC Magazine, Network World, eWEEK and more. In 2010, the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform was a winner of the 2010 Network Products Guide Reader Trust Award for E-Discovery and a finalist for both the 2010 UK IT Industry Awards and the 2010 KM Promise Award. For the last two years, Clearwell has also earned the highest possible rating of “Strong Positive” in Gartner’s E-Discovery MarketScope Report.

The KMWorld 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management list is compiled by KMWorld’s editors through discussions with colleagues, knowledge management practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors and customers. The complete list will appear in the March issue of KMWorld Magazine.
