Smarsh’s New Ecosystem of Digital Solutions Enable Superior Legal Decisions at Reduced Costs, Complexities
Smarsh, the Portland, Oregon-based software-as-a-service company, recently announced the launch of a cloud-enabled partner ecosystem designed to help firms tackle their mounting e-discovery responsibilities.
Members of the partner ecosystem can leverage the company’s data science and engineering resources, which support faster, better-informed strategic legal decision-making and reduce costs, Smarsh said in a release.
The announcement comes as e-discovery has become far more complex. For years, firms were able to rely on legacy, on-premise systems to deal with their capture, retention and supervisory responsibilities.
But remote and hybrid work trends – which have hastened the use of Microsoft Teams, Zoom and other similar collaboration tools, causing a massive spike in the volume and variety of electronic communications – has changed that. The amount of data involved, experts say, is just too great for firms to continue to lean on past approaches.
The charter member of this new partner ecosystem is Reveal-Brainspace, an international firm that provides companies with AI-powered, early-case assessment and review tools.
The launch of the ecosystem follows Smarsh’s acquisition of Digital Safe’s product line from Microfocus in November of last year, a move that boosted its archiving capabilities.
