 --Anacomp to Leverage Digital Reef’s Data Discovery and Management Platform to Enhance its Comprehensive eDiscovery Services for Law Firms and Corporate Legal Counsels— 


BOXBOROUGH, MA and SAN DIEGO, CA., August 11, 2009Digital Reef (www.digitalreefinc.com) , developer of the first massively scalable unstructured data discovery and management platform, and Anacomp, a leading provider of litigation support and business process services and solutions, today announced a new technology alliance agreement. Through the partnership, Anacomp will leverage Digital Reef’s platform to offer advanced document connection, selection, reduction, analysis, as well as early case assessment (ECA) services to law firms, corporate legal departments and government agencies. Such services offer legal users the ability to significantly reduce their eDiscovery costs, accelerate litigation processes and mitigate litigation risks.

“Document review represents the highest cost element in the litigation process. With CaseLogistix, Anacomp’s flagship litigation review platform, we have addressed the ability to reduce these costs by empowering users to rapidly review documents. Now, this partnership with Digital Reef allows us to apply this highly scalable and high-performance platform to control the relevance of documents to be reviewed in CaseLogistix at an early stage in the process. The combination of fewer documents being reviewed more quickly in a non-linear but integrated manner provides significant strategic and cost benefits to our clients,” said Howard Dratler, Anacomp’s CEO.

eDiscovery represents considerable cost and risk for organizations facing litigation. The combination of Digital Reef’s highly-scalable discovery capabilities and similarity engine with Anacomp’s CaseLogistix review platform and experienced legal discovery consultants enables a powerful set of legal review services designed to ensure that clients can quickly, accurately and defensibly find relevant content across a wide range of servers and storage, identify responsive data for expert review, and enable highly-efficient review and processing. The ability to take advantage of these legal review services will not only enable clients to perform true ECA, but will streamline the review process, saving time, budget and resources, as well as mitigating the risks associated with more manual processes.

“We’re excited that a highly regarded litigation support solutions provider like Anacomp recognizes the value of incorporating our data discovery and management platform into its legal review solution,” said Steve Akers, Founder of Digital Reef. “Meeting customers’ eDiscovery needs is a priority for both Anacomp and Digital Reef, and we look forward to providing the best possible combination of technology, usability, and service to our clients.”

Used by more than two dozen AMLAW 200 firms, CaseLogistix enables legal teams to quickly collect, organize, review, analyze and produce any amount of electronically stored information (ESI) using an interface similar to that of Microsoft® Outlook®. The system is fully Unicode compliant and is able to recognize all foreign language character sets. In addition, CaseLogistix’s innovative docNative™ Paradigm approach to eDiscovery emphasizes native file review, empowering users to view hundreds of file types, including audio and video, without the need of third party file conversions. Anacomp’s docNative Paradigm also empowers the ability to manage images such as TIFFS, so hybrid format environments of TIFFS, near-native, and native files are seamless to the user.

Anacomp’s legal discovery service with Digital Reef enhanced data discovery, analysis, and early case assessment (ECA) is now generally available.
