Digital Reef Announces Early Case Assessment Alliance With Boston Litigation Solutions

—Leading eDiscovery Service Provider to Utilize Digital Reef's Scalable Discovery Platform and Analytics Engine to Provide Early Case Assessment Services— 


BOXBOROUGH, MA, October 26, 2009Digital Reef (www.digitalreefinc.com), developer of the first massively scalable information management, governance and discovery platform, today announced that Boston Litigation Solutions (BLS)—a leading eDiscovery and litigation support service provider—will utilize the Digital Reef platform to power their eDiscovery and Early Case Assessment (ECA) services.

As enterprises have begun to scrutinize litigation costs and recognize that 70 percent of the costs lie in document review, there has been an increased interest in ECA to reduce the amount of potentially responsive information to review. Boston Litigation Solutions will use the Digital Reef platform to provide advanced filtering and analytics capabilities to clients. BLS customers will benefit not only by greatly reducing the cost of document review, but also from the ability to make faster, more-informed decisions on legal matters.

"The need to utilize advanced analytics to reduce litigation costs has never been greater," said Bob Lentz, president and CEO of Digital Reef. "We are pleased that Boston Litigation Solutions can leverage the Digital Reef platform to provide more value to customers with advanced filtering and ECA services."

Digital Reef employs sophisticated analytics to remove duplicate and irrelevant content—significantly reducing the amount of information that has to be reviewed manually. By paring datasets into manageable volumes, businesses make better use of internal resources for legal reviews, plus reduce outside review costs.

"Providing value-add analytics to our customers is a must and to do so at the scale that Digital Reef provides gives us a huge competitive advantage with clients looking for smarter information management and streamlined eDiscovery services," said Kevin Glass, Managing Partner of Boston Litigation Solutions.
