FRONTEO Becomes a RelativityOne Certified Partner

SAN FRANCISCO and CHICAGO, Jan. 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FRONTEO USA, Inc., a leading provider of global eDiscovery, managed review solutions and big data analysis services utilizing artificial intelligence technology, announced today that FRONTEO has been named a RelativityOne Certified Partner by kCura, developers of the eDiscovery software Relativity.

The RelativityOne Certified Partner program recognizes Relativity partners who have made a significant commitment to offering solutions using RelativityOne, the cloud version of Relativity.

As a RelativityOne Certified Partner, FRONTEO will provide law firms and enterprise clients a single eDiscovery platform in the cloud, providing instant access to new features, such as advanced analytics like email thread visualization.  

FRONTEO will offer RelativityOne as a standalone SaaS solution or, in some cases, in tandem with an on-premises installation of Relativity, allowing clients to seamlessly manage a portfolio of cases. A single login provides access to on-premises or cloud-based case data, and integration with Office 365 simplifies the movement of Office documents and email to Relativity.

“This designation is an affirmation of FRONTEO’s strong track record in global eDiscovery, and our expertise with the Relativity platform,” said Andy Jimenez, CEO of FRONTEO USA. “FRONTEO has been a Relativity partner for seven years, and in that time we have added value to the open platform with our acclaimed BI TRUST portal for tracking eDiscovery budgets and performance. We are excited to support law firm and enterprise clients on RelativityOne, an open platform that takes full advantage of cloud technology. The Relativity hybrid model will reduce maintenance and support and enable us to focus on innovating with new integrated features and managed services that simplify eDiscovery and reduce costs for our clients.”

“It’s great to have FRONTEO, a long-time kCura partner, become one of our first RelativityOne Certified Partners,” said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. “FRONTEO’s technical expertise in Relativity and commitment to customer service ensure they will provide an outstanding RelativityOne experience for their customers.”

FRONTEO eDiscovery experts will be present at booth 1401 at Legaltech during Legalweek in New York, January 31 – February 2nd. Attendees may request a meeting or demo in advance on the FRONTEO website.
