"Our global clients face unique challenges as a result of rapidly growing sources and volumes of data, increased government regulations, international data privacy rules and evolving case law. As such, we believe they need a flexible, scalable solution for managing e-discovery projects with repeatable and defensible business processes."

Speaking on behalf of the judging panel KMWorld Editor-in-Chief Hugh McKellar says, "In each and every case, the thoughtfulness and elegance of the software certainly warrants deep examination. Depending on customer needs, the products on the list can dramatically boost organizational performance.
