LAKE OSWEGO, OR--(Marketwire - June 19, 2007) - Exterro, a leading provider of advanced discovery management technology to the legal industry, today announced a three module expansion to Exterro Fusion, its integrated workflow platform.

Exterro Fusion is the legal industry's first integrated workflow platform for discovery management. Exterro Fusion helps law firms and corporations mitigate risk, control costs, and speed responsiveness by creating a consistent and repeatable workflow processes.

"Our clients have been asking us to help streamline the key risk areas in discovery," said David Haines, EVP of Strategy and Development, Exterro. "They want more robust workflow functionality for legal holds, collection automation and review planning. These new modules fulfill this need by providing reliable control and predictability for a volatile process fraught with surprises."

Understanding the Contemporary View of Discovery

Over the past year, the percentage of companies with more than 50 pending lawsuits has doubled. The need for pro-active planning is therefore critical.

Corporations respond to discovery requests primarily through custodians or key "record holders." They interview record owners, place legal holds on their data, map the data, then track collection, processing, review and production efforts. In this model, every employee is a potential document custodian.

This contemporary view of discovery management has the ability to: predict costs of discovery by custodian; understand which custodians will need to be alerted in advance of the investigation or suit by "mapping" their data, in advance; install litigation holds on custodians; track hold status of custodians; and track the progress of collection, review and production by custodians.

Exterro's new modules address these challenges by taking a custodian-centric point of view of workflow that helps corporations manage the process more effectively.

Specific features for each module include:

Legal Hold Management Module enables the management of multiple holds across matters, the automation of the tracking and the management of legal holds. Legal teams gain control over the legal hold process by also being able to track legal holds with integrated custodial management.

Collection Workflow Management Module automates the collection process. The module enables users to forecast varying volumes of custodian data, thereby facilitating proactive budgeting. Other features include the tracking of the preservation status of custodians, the progress of collection, review and production by custodian and the tracking of custodian device inventory, collected with defensible chain-of-custody.

Review Planning and Metrics Management Module highlights the preparation and tracking of review schedules, the forecasting of the number of reviewers needed to meet discovery schedule deadlines and assesses the impact of cost and time. This module provides collaboration with outside counsel on strategy decisions by real-time integration with review databases and monitoring the reviewer's performance and cost per document decisions.
