IE Discovery Invests in Discovery Workflow Provider eDirect Impact

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - August 10, 2010) - IE Discovery, a leading provider of comprehensive Discovery Management solutions to the legal community, announced today it has acquired a majority interest in eDirect Impact. The investment will provide eDirect Impact with additional funding for development of its market-leading discovery workflow management technology, eManage. In addition to its equity stake, IE Discovery has an exclusive license to deploy eManage workflow management technology in the corporate and government markets.

As more clients wish to deploy disparate technology solutions, eManage fills a critical need for a universal platform to connect and integrate popular e-discovery products such as IPRO and review tools such as Concordance, Summation and iConect, as well as IE Discovery's proprietary discovery platform, InfoDox. eManage ties together the tools of choice for clients and their outside counsel, providing the management platform required for true centralized project management of discovery projects across firms, projects and technologies. "Our ultimate objective is to provide a platform that integrates seamlessly with existing e-discovery products and services," said Chris May, CEO of IE Discovery. "This strategy will allow us to be more technology agnostic and will remove many barriers of adoption."

eManage is built, in part, on the SharePoint platform that is already in place at more than two-thirds of companies(1). It simplifies the project management aspect of electronic discovery, while automating workflow and providing real-time reports to clients and counsel. It works across platforms and increases client control by providing real-time visibility into all discovery, no matter what technology is being applied or which law firm is handling the matter. eManage reduces discovery risk by providing detailed, real-time information enabling greater control over projects, while lowering the overall costs of discovery by creating time and cost efficiencies throughout the discovery process. IE Discovery's equity investment will allow eDirect Impact to continue to enhance the functionality of eManage and provide greater integration with a wider array of electronic discovery applications and review platforms.
