L.A.-Based Myriad Litigation Solutions Selects Lateral Data Viewpoint(TM) for Core of Its E-discovery Services
In Side-by-Side Comparisons, Viewpoint All-in-One’s Toolset, Speed, And Ease of Use ‘Stood Above the Rest, Without Any Doubt,’ Says Myriad CTO
PR Newswire — September 8, 2010
HOUSTON, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ — E-discovery technology leader Lateral Data, LP announced today that Myriad Litigation Solutions, LLC, one of the West Coast’s most prominent litigation support service providers, has selected Lateral Data’s Viewpoint(TM) E-discovery software as its core E-discovery application. Myriad believes Viewpoint will be the “cornerstone” service tool that satisfies clients’ needs for greater speed, visibility and cost-effectiveness.
“In side-by-side comparisons with other solutions, Viewpoint by far stood above the rest, without any doubt,” said Charles Adams, Chief Technical Officer of Myriad Litigation Solutions. “Its speed, latency and ease of use all were superior. We’re sharing the capabilities with our clients and telling them Viewpoint will be a cornerstone piece of our operations.”
Viewpoint, Lateral Data’s flagship product, is a licensed solution that facilitates virtually all the major components of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) spectrum including collection and preservation of data, pre-processing, full processing, analysis, review and production. The product was developed over a seven year period of real-world use by a legal services company, giving it significant advantages in both core and convenience features over products developed by software companies not in the legal profession.
Featuring a familiar Outlook-style interface, Viewpoint can execute tasks at speeds two to five times that of other leading platforms. In a single package, it delivers all the E-discovery tasks a service provider needs, enabling the user to do more with a dramatically smaller technology investment.
According to Adams, Viewpoint’s ability to quickly ingest and report on data will give its corporate and law firm clients new advantages in developing and executing their case strategies. Myriad, based in Los Angeles, serves a nationwide client roster from its downtown L.A., Santa Monica and Las Vegas service offices as well as from affiliate offices in San Francisco and Anchorage. Its E-discovery and EDD (Electronic Data Discovery) services are a key component of a much broader service set; among the firm’s EDD and consulting offerings are data collection, filtering, reviewing and processing.
“Typically a client gives us a large amount of data–often multi-terabytes of it–and asks us to process it and report back. Often specific search terms are changed in mid-project, which requires one to two days of re-processing,” Adams commented. “The beauty of Viewpoint is that clients can now do the same thing themselves, on the fly. That kind of immediacy has been impossible in the past. What’s more, Viewpoint is not a linear tool. Its smart technology lets users move through volumes of data very quickly–for example, it can group documents based on email threading. It allows clients to get a handle on data very quickly.”
“Viewpoint continues to gain momentum through its acceptance by many of America’s top legal services entities–and Myriad Litigation Solutions is certainly no exception,” said Matt Berry, Founder and CEO of Lateral Data. “We’re pleased that Myriad saw fit to put Viewpoint at the very center of its EDD and E-discovery services.”
Viewpoint, now in Version 4.5, is currently available for licensing to service providers, corporate legal departments and law firms. For more details on Viewpoint 4.5 or to schedule a demo, log on to www.lateraldata.com or call (713) 592-8585.
