Empire Discovery Partners with EDT

New York City, NY – February 20, 2014 - Empire Discovery, a leading national eDiscovery and consulting firm, announced an innovative new range of cloud, early case assessment and mobile solutions via its partnership with EDT, an established international provider of litigation and investigations software. 

“The data volumes have become unmanageable for our clients” said Frank Canterino, Empire’s Co-Founding Partner and CTO.  “Even with emerging technologies like predictive coding large volumes of data still need to be collected, ingested and culled.   Using traditional approaches, this can cost too much and take too long.  Now, more than ever, there’s a need for powerful early case analysis tools with integrated budgeting and data culling features.  

Canterino believes EDT software fills that gap. “Legal teams need to see the impact of their proposed culling strategy, before it’s applied” he said.  “We can now enable our clients to reduce or prioritize massive volumes of collected data before any significant processing, predictive coding or review costs are incurred. And, should they choose to do so, they can continue on and manage their whole case in the same tool which delivers significant savings by reducing complex over handling of data”.  

EDT’s Toolbox software was designed by lawyers, for lawyers with the aim to make it so easy to use that virtually no training is required. It dramatically simplifies the whole litigation or investigation life cycle by reducing data movements and keeping everything in one database throughout the whole case. Alternatively, it can be deployed as an Early Case Assessment and processing tool to integrate with legacy review platforms like Relativity, Summation, Xera, Concordance or Ringtail.   

While EDT is a new entrant to the US market, it is well established in the UK, Australia and Asia where its software has been licensed by some of the largest Global 100 law firms and corporations for many years. 

Empire has been servicing its expanding client base in the litigation and investigation market for the last 2 years. The company has attracted and grown a talented team of technology specialists and has developed a reputation for high quality, creative solutions in a market that is becoming increasingly competitive and commoditized.

“EDT’s software provides a perfect fit for our clients who are looking for affordable early case assessment functionality” continued Frank Canterino. “With its comprehensive functionality across the EDRM spectrum, from processing to analysis, review, production and presentation, it’s ideally suited to clients who are concerned about data manipulation costs associated with the traditional approach that involves multiple tools, excessive processing and complex data movements”.  

“We are delighted to be working with a company as dynamic and successful as Empire” said Jo Sherman, CEO and founder of EDT. “The Empire team really understand the US market and their clients are receptive to creative new approaches including cloud and mobile solutions. Empire’s deployment of EDT is a fresh, single tool, non-linear take on the EDRM that will differentiate Empire in a market that has become commoditized and lack luster due to the dearth of variety in hosted offerings“.

Empire will be introducing its EDT powered solutions to its strategic clients over forthcoming weeks.
