MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Mar. 23, 2011 — Clearwell Systems, Inc., a leader in intelligent e–discovery, today announced that AEGON, an international life insurance, pension and investment company, has deployed the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform for in-house e-discovery. AEGON UK’s legal and IT teams are using Clearwell for processing, analysis and review in order to ensure best practice compliance processes and to vastly cut back on the e-discovery costs related to litigation, regulatory inquiries and internal investigations.
The Clearwell E-Discovery Platform is an enterprise-class solution that was purpose-built for e-discovery, and which addresses the end-to-end e-discovery lifecycle in a single product. Clearwell’s Processing and Analysis Module provides several features such as Transparent Search, discussion threads and people analytics that enable users to significantly accelerate early case assessment, defensibly eliminate irrelevant documents and false positives, and rapidly perform first-pass review. Clearwell’s Review and Production Module enables reviewers to view all related documents in context, perform one-click tagging, redact documents and apply reason codes, increasing review throughput and consistency. In addition, the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform automatically tracks all actions on case documents throughout the e-discovery workflow, enabling robust end-to-end reporting and analytics and ensuring a defensible e-discovery process.
AEGON UK joins the list of leading global organizations that are strategically bringing e-discovery in-house and using the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform to perform early case assessment, streamline the review process, and gain control over the cost and risk of e-discovery.
