NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 31, 2011) - LegalTech -- Zapproved Inc., a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider with a platform that adds accountability to business communications, announced today major enhancements to Legal Hold Pro. The improvements to the industry's first pure SaaS system for managing custodian notification and compliance for legal holds continue to differentiate the tool's ease of use, flexibility, defensibility and affordability.

Legal Hold Pro customers value the system's power and ease-of-use. "We had tried another product for our legal hold process and have recently switched to Legal Hold Pro. What sets Legal Hold Pro apart is that it does everything we need it to do, yet is intuitive and simple enough for all of us to use. It takes a complex process and makes it much easier to manage so that we are more confident in our legal hold process," said Michelle Lange, Litigation Support Project Manager, Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney.

The enhancements to Legal Hold Pro being announced at LegalTech New York include the following:

  • Refreshed user interface provides a new "look and feel" including updates for navigation, dialogue boxes and email style sheets that make the system more intuitive to use
  • Greater flexibility and control over the formatting of hold notifications and reminders, including new HTML editing and preview options
  • Greater accessibility, including a new custodian portal view that enables a custodian to instantly view all of their active holds (including when being released from a hold)
  • Expanded workflow options, including the ability for a hold administer to send an escalation request to a custodian's supervisor to ensure appropriate response to hold instructions
  • Enhanced legal hold history reporting, including new filtering and search options to readily access information over the life of the hold

These new capabilities are available to all existing customers at no additional cost and were rolled out in minutes, an advantage of the software-as-a-service architecture upon which Legal Hold Pro is built.

"We are excited to be announcing new capabilities in response to customer input," said Brad Harris, Vice President of Legal Products at Zapproved. Such changes continue to enhance not only an organization's economic benefit, but also their confidence in their legal hold processes. "Our customers can realize an ROI exceeding 200 percent in their first year based on labor savings alone, while significantly reducing risk and burden on their organization when responding to preservation obligations."

The Legal Hold Pro service has been embraced by leading Fortune 500 companies, law firms and public agencies. It is available at a variety of new annual subscriptions to meet the needs of organizations of any size ranging from enterprises down to boutique law firms.
