Global eDiscovery software and services provider Consilio has reached agreement with Business Intelligence Associates to bring BIA’s TotalDiscovery platform to Consilio’s clients. Consilio becomes a BIA Platinum Partner.
TotalDiscovery as a cloud-based platform which automates identification, preservation and collection of data, enabling legal hold notification and remote collection. The objective, as Consilio Executive Vice President Todd Horst puts it, is “to help clients get to early case assessment and full in disclosure review faster … removing many of the barriers associated with traditional on-site data collections”. The objective, put shortly, is to shorten the time before lawyers get their eyes on documents so that they can start giving advice to clients.
It is at this stage, for example, that collections run into legal and practical difficulties such as local privacy and data protection regulations. Consilio gains a significant advantage for its clients where such issues can be identified as soon as possible and factored into the estimates of time and cost.
