11 Litigation Support is one of the first targets in the discovery process for any legal case. With a hour response time becoming the standard for fulfilling e-discovery requests, it has become mandatory to have an efficient, accurate archiving system. Athena Archiver provides an extensive suite of litigation tools which help your company: 1. Reduce your e-discovery costs by up to 80% 2. Win important legal cases through recovered time from reduced e-discovery demands 3. Comply with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) 4. Prevent potentially damaging s from ever being delivered. 5. Protect your corporate reputation High efficiency classification Many companies know that retrieving searches are only the first step. Companies pay legal firms between $300-$500/hour to classify s into separate categories such as responsive, not-responsive, privileged, or redacted. This can be a very expensive and inefficient process. Athena Archiver reduces the time spent reviewing s over 300% over other archive systems by providing powerful filter capabilities so review teams can reduce responsive s by using search criteria rather than filtering manually. Ultimately, effective filtering reduces the amount of that needs to be reviewed, which leads to faster classification.
12 About Athena Archiver 2-7 Policy Management Litigation Support Integrated review system review is an integral part of proactively protecting a company from liability and common lawsuits such as discrimination, sexual harassment, or wrongful termination. It can prevent problems before they happen by ensuring that critical s get the appropriate approval from managers or senior executives. Athena Archiver enables compliance and legal teams to process s with high efficiency by integrating directly with each reviewer s normal workflow. Sensitive s such as contracts, business records, or confidential information are caught with the policy management system and are marked as needing to be reviewed. Once the s are classified, the s are clearly labeled and delivered directly to the appropriate reviewer s inbox. There are a couple of unique advantages to this approach. First, the reviewer does not need to login to another system in order to do reviews. This reduces the time between the time it takes to review and the time the gets delivered from hours to minutes or even seconds. Second, by making the review process a single click operation, reviewers can process much more in the same time as other solutions. e-delivery Athena Archiver offers a fully electronic path to meet requests. In the past, users would send DVD s or tapes of data by FedEx causing privacy or security issues. Today, Athena Archiver enables legal teams to submit the data completely electronically reducing the liability of incorrect delivery or lost packages. One added benefit is that you have the ability to retract s which are incorrectly submitted. Once s are collected and organized, a single click operation enables users to export into native file formats such as PST or EML. Emergency Discovery. Emergency Discovery is a unique feature of Athena Archiver. It is a process which enables administrators to run a single program that automatically scans the entire organization for s and make it available in a single searchable archive. The entire process requires NO user intervention and is fully automated. It can save weeks of time restoring from tape, searching individual workstations, and manually processing multiple data formats. Emergency Discovery is the fastest way for companies to meet discovery or subpoena requests with absolutely no preparation. It is ideal for organizations that don t have an archiving system, but needs to meet discovery or subpoena requests in a timely manner.
