Exterro Inc., the preferred provider of software specifically designed for in-house legal and IT teams at Global 2000 organizations, today announced new automation and workflow capabilities in Exterro Fusion. The latest upgrades are designed to further refine and automate in-house e-discovery management with advanced pre-project scoping, streamlined data source cataloging, new reports and integrated identification of employee changes.
"Automation and ease of use are two of the most demanded capabilities by in-house legal teams for enterprise-scale e-discovery management," said Ajith Samuel, executive vice president of process innovation at Exterro. "The advancements to the automated workflow capabilities in Exterro Fusion further represent our commitment to ensuring clients can efficiently and defensibly manage the complex requirements faced in e-discovery during litigation, regulatory investigations and related information governance activities."
The two applications in Exterro's e-discovery software suite delivering the newest workflow capabilities include:
Fusion Employee Monitor - Unveiled in February, Fusion Employee Monitor ensures that critical information from employment changes is automatically detected, tracked and acted upon to ensure compliance with business, legal and regulatory obligations. The application now features the following:
Redesigned user interface to extend Exterro Fusion's ease of use and ensure rapid adoption and immediate productivity for all users. Integrated connections with both Fusion Legal Hold� and Fusion Comprehensive Interview� to more easily identify employee data sources and ensure information subject to legal hold is not destroyed as part of the organization's standard retention policies. Fusion Project Management - Formerly known as Discovery Workflow Management�, Exterro's powerful workflow engine offers improved automation across e-discovery projects with:
Pre-project scoping that enables e-discovery preservation or collection projects to have a distinct scoping phase before the project begins. Requirements can automatically be applied to all projects in a matter, thus eliminating re-work from one project to another. Advanced data source cataloging that enables queries to be run against the data source catalog or database, importing only the relevant results for more targeted e-discovery management. New reports that capture all notes from pre-project scoping at the data source or custodian level for improved collaboration across all project team members and managers.
The upgrades to both Fusion Employee Monitor and Fusion Project Management are immediately available. More information on the workflow upgrades and the entire Exterro Fusion e-discovery software suite is available at www.exterro.com/ediscovery-software.
