CCH Workflow Solutions Chooses AXS-One to Enhance its Litigation Readiness Offering in Australia

  • 11 March, 2008 18:40

<p>CCH Workflow Solutions, a Wolters Kluwer business and leading provider of litigation support services in Australia, and AXS-One today announced that CCH Workflow Solutions has chosen the AXS-One Compliance Platform to enhance its hosted e-Discovery suite of services.</p>
<p>CCH Workflow Solutions has vast experience deploying leading litigation support technologies and e-Discovery services to many of Australia’s top law firms, government departments and corporations.</p>
<p>In line with recent developments in relation to the Victorian Government's Document Destruction Act and the upcoming introduction of the new Federal Court Practice Note, there is an ever-increasing need for organisations to be “litigation ready”.</p>
<p>Planning for litigation is necessary to meet retention and preservation obligations, satisfy disclosure requirements, address evidentiary standards, and defend the reasonableness of the company’s electronic records management.</p>
<p>Commenting on the announcement, Gary Kendrick, managing director of CCH Workflow Solutions, said organisations now need to be as prepared in the courtroom as they are in the boardroom.</p>
<p>"Unmanaged email and other electronic business records pose a significant corporate risk. By integrating AXS-One's Compliance Platform into CCH ‘Live Archive’, CCH’s SaaS litigation readiness offering, we can help corporations alleviate the headache involved in quickly finding and preserving relevant data in the event of litigation,” said Kendrick.</p>
<p>CCH ‘Live Archive’ now allows in-house legal departments, lawyers and government entities to securely archive and manage relevant electronic records in a single, searchable repository. In the event of litigation or other regulatory and legal action, these organisations can run case-related searches against their records in the archive via a single web-based interface and manage their preservation. Relevant data can then be marked up and packaged into appropriate formats for use by either the corporation or law firm.</p>
<p>David Thompson, vice president Asia Pacific of AXS-One, said hosted message management and archiving was shaping as the most high profile application for 2008.</p>
<p>"Gartner predicts that by 2009, the proportion and variety of externally sourced functionality in the IT application portfolio, such as business process outsourcing and software-as-a-service offerings will at least double. †</p>
<p>"We are very pleased to partner with CCH Workflow Solutions, Asia Pacific’s market leader in the delivery of legal document processing services and workflow solutions to meet complex information, compliance and risk management requirements," said Thompson.</p>
<p>AXS-One is a pioneer of the digital archiving market, successfully developing software solutions for the enterprise market for more than 15 years and deployed by a number of hosting and SaaS providers for the past five. With an eye on the current market, in January AXS-One established its Hosting Division to offer innovative archiving technologies to providers in the hosting and e-Discovery markets.</p>
<p>Kendrick added, “We have a great working relationship with AXS-One and look forward to developing our litigation support services further with them. CCH Workflow Solutions already has vast experience with deploying leading litigation support technologies across many of Australia’s top law firms, government departments and ASX top 100 companies”.</p>
