PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - February 16, 2010) - Zapproved Inc., a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider with a platform that adds accountability to business communications, and Prism Litigation Technology, Inc. announced today a partnership agreement to offer Legal Hold Pro to Prism's extensive client base. Prism will utilize Legal Hold Pro, the industry's first pure cloud-based system for managing custodian notification and compliance for legal holds, as a system to enable their corporate and law firm clients to implement effective and defensible litigation holds from initial notification through custodian interviews.
Chicago-based Prism Litigation Technology has clients across the United States. The firm has established a strong reputation in the legal industry through its full range of litigation support and e-discovery consulting services. Prism handles all phases of the litigation process with its expert staff that includes attorneys, paralegals, litigation support managers and technical personnel.
"Since Judge Scheindlin issued the Pension Committee opinion last month where she clearly stated how the failure to issue a written legal hold will inevitably lead to spoliation and therefore gross negligence, we are finding a critical need among our clients for a more effective approach for managing legal holds," said Mandi Ross, CEO and Managing Director of Prism Litigation Technology. "Legal Hold Pro is unique in meeting this need by providing a defensible system that is fast to deploy and easy to maintain, while ensuring best practices that readily reduce cost and mitigate risk."
"Prism has grown because the firm delivers a unique blend of cutting edge technology and in-depth legal expertise. We are pleased to partner with Mandi's team to ensure Prism clients can immediately respond to a duty to preserve without the hassle or delay of deploying costly enterprise software," said Monica Enand, President and CEO of Zapproved.
