Xerox Litigation Services seems to have had a good 2012, with a 100% increase in client end users and a 60% increase in data under management.
2012 was also the year that Xerox-XLS acquired Lateral Data and its all-in-one Viewpoint eDiscovery platform which, when added to its machine learning-based technology assisted review tool CategoriX, gives clients greater flexibility. As Xerox points out in a summary headed Xerox Continues Accelerated Growth in eDiscovery Market, clients can opt for fully managed services, install Viewpoint on-premise or leverage Xerox’s Viewpoint IT hosting service for do-it-yourself e-discovery, or deploy Viewpoint on-premise for upstream e-discovery tasks – such as data identification, collection and early case assessment (ECA) – and move hosting and production to the Xerox cloud.
Xerox XLS has now made two senior appointments which should ensure that this growth continues. Robert Hellewell and Bill Mariano both join as Vice Presidents of Business Development with a focus on client relationships and particularly on developing cost-effective and efficient eDiscovery strategies for corporate legal departments and law firms.
