EDT to provide industry leading software for KPMG Canada’s Ediscovery Managed Services.
Toronto – February 1, 2016 – EDT has teamed up with KPMG to add its market leading software to KPMG’s Ediscovery Managed Services. This service, powered by EDT software, will deliver powerful litigation support and ediscovery functionality to law firms and their clients; as well as corporate and governmental legal and investigation departments, helping them manage their litigation and investigation data.
Traditionally, law firms and organizations have outsourced their ediscovery needs, paying hourly service rates and gigabyte rates to service providers who process and host data. With KPMG’s Managed Services, organizations can reduce costs by getting access to leading solutions for a fixed monthly fee.
The EDT software will allow companies to fully control their cases and data, without having to assume the necessary and important capital investment and ongoing maintenance-related expenditures.
EDT CEO and founder, Jo Sherman, said, “This is a truly unique offering KPMG provides, allowing users to be totally self-sufficient by virtue of a single integrated SAAS platform that supports their entire case life cycle. It provides all of the benefits of an On Premises installation without the challenges of hardware procurement and maintenance.”
“EDT Software is one of the few solutions offering A to Z litigation and ediscovery support (from data ingestion, ECA, processing, review, and analysis through production) within a single platform; and without the need to export and import, or acquire different modules to benefit from a complete solution,” said Dominic Jaar, Partner, Forensics Technology Services, KPMG in Canada.
KPMG and EDT will be attending the upcoming Legal Tech 2016 event in New York, where the new offering will be unveiled. At the event, KPMG and EDT representatives will be available to discuss the new offering and demonstrate the software in action.
