TERIS becomes one of the first litigation support service providers to offer Clearwell E-Discovery Platform version 5.0 to its clients

Seattle, WA – December 2, 2009 – TERIS announced today the addition of Clearwell E-Discovery Platform Version 5.0 to the firm’s product offering. The latest version features new pre-processing, review and production modules that help lawyers pre-process, analyze, search, review, redact, and produce documents within a single product, eliminating the need to use multiple tools and enabling an iterative and defensible e-discovery process.

Clearwell Pre-Processing Module provides interactive graphs that enable e-discovery teams to quickly filter out data by known files (both NSRL NIST list as well as custom lists), custodian, date, file type, and size, significantly reducing downstream processing and review costs. Clearwell Review Module enables reviewers to quickly redact documents, apply reason codes, and verify redactions prior to production. Decision-tree tagging using a multi-layer tree structure prevents errors and minimizes the number of clicks needed to accurately tag a document. Clearwell Production Module offers a range of production options, including bates stamping, watermarking, custom header/footer, and various export options. In addition to these three new modules, the Clearwell E-Discovery Platform V5.0 delivers over 20 new features and enhancements in its industry-leading processing and early case analysis module.

TERIS CTO Peter Sternkopf“This latest version of Clearwell is a dramatic step forward in capabilities,” said Peter Sternkopf, TERIS Chief Technology Officer. “The new platform addresses the glaring need for an eDiscovery product that reduces the number of tools required in a case and also helps reduce the repetitive movement of data.”

“We have been a longtime partner with Clearwell and appreciate the opportunity to work with the development team to contribute feedback and ideas for the new 5.0 platform,” Sternkopf continued. “Our eDiscovery team can now perform all of the post-collection phases of eDiscovery in a single, integrated application, instead of using three or four separate tools.”
