Portland, Ore., January 16, 2014 – Zapproved® Inc. introduced today the new Collections Tracking module in Legal Hold Pro™, the industry’s fastest growing legal hold management software. With Collections Tracking, in-house legal teams will have a powerful tool for directing and overseeing both the preservation and collection of potentially responsive electronically stored information.

Once custodians have been notified of a preservation obligation, the legal team utilizes the Collections Tracking module to initiate a collection request, notify assigned collectors of tasks, and track progress. The system provides real-time intelligence on the status of collection process while creating a detailed audit trail and timeline for increased defensibility.

“Collections Tracking is the perfect complement to our standard-setting litigation hold workflow. Collection activities can be complex to manage, and the Collections Tracking module in Legal Hold Pro offers a powerful way to organize such tasks and track progress in real-time,” said Brad Harris, Zapproved’s Vice President for Legal Products. “This new module ensures the legal team is able to manage the complete workflow associated with data preservation with minimal effort and consistent results.”

A key benefit of Legal Hold Pro’s Collections Tracking is how it serves as platform between the legal and IT departments. The module provides a complete list of tasks for the collectors who are typically in the IT department and responsible for such efforts as collecting data, enabling email archiving, or suspending routine destruction of data.

Legal Hold Pro, recent winner of the 2013 Best of Legal Times Legal Hold Solution, is the fastest growing litigation hold management system in the industry. Organizations are selecting it to replace time-consuming manual legal holds or less sophisticated software tools.

Legal Hold Pro’s Collections Tracking module is now available for customers and more details can be provided upon request. Call 1-888-366-0666 or send an email to info@legalholdpro.com.

We just published the landmark Legal Hold and Data Preservation Benchmark Survey 2013. Conducted by the Steinberg Group LLC, the survey measured the prevailing attitudes of 525 professionals who currently oversee legal hold processes, making it the largest study of its kind focused specifically on how organizations are currently handling legal data preservation.

Legal Hold Pro Benchmark Survey

Some key findings from the Legal Hold and Data Preservation Benchmark Survey 2013 are as follows:

  • More than half of survey participants still use manual processes for tracking litigation holds, five percent communicate litigation holds verbally, and one third now have a software system in place.
  • Despite the attention afforded sanction cases, only 22 percent of the survey participants have had to actually defend their preservation efforts.
  • 54 percent of respondents consider their organization to be “at risk” from legal holds.
  • When evaluating efforts to create a “culture of compliance” through training about data preservation, 70 percent of participants indicated that their organization offers training but less than half (47 percent) feel custodians understand their responsibilities.
  • When comparing their data preservation process to peer organizations, 62 percent indicated “better than most”; this figure jumped to 81 percent among respondents using an automated system.
  • When automating the legal holds process, organizations reported benefits that included increased efficiency, the propensity to issue holds, and satisfaction and confidence in their process.

By surveying the largest audience of legal professionals actively engaged in data preservation, the 2013 Benchmark Survey provides the clearest picture of legal hold process maturity to date. In general, the legal industry is still in an early phase of embracing litigation hold processes with a need for more defensible processes and better internal training. However, we clearly see those organizations that are investing in their preservation process report tangible benefits that reduce cost and mitigate risk.

We plan to continue to measure best practices in order to better understand the growing influence of case law and technology in this critical area of focus.

The Law Firm Advantage Edition allows a firm to manage and monitor multiple clients with a single login, including drafting and sending legal hold notices. The law firm can also respond directly to custodian questions and distribute preservation questionnaires.

A key element to the new edition is that Law Firm Advantage supports the ability to pass through the costs on a client-by-client basis so billing accurately reflects the usage for each client. The affordable service makes using it a powerful and globally-accessible tool for clients of every size.

“Legal Hold Pro Law Firm Advantage has been developed with guidance from a great number of law firms working with clients to meet the standard that the courts now expect,” said Brad Harris, Vice President of Legal Products, Zapproved. “Our team responded with new features for managing preservation collaboratively while still maintaining our ease-of-use which is a hallmark of Legal Hold Pro. The courts have been clear that outside counsel must be actively engaged in the preservation efforts of their clients, so this edition is a way to do that right away.”

Legal Hold Pro, Zapproved’s flagship product for managing legal hold notification and compliance, has been embraced by Fortune 500 companies, leading law firms and government agencies because it reduces risks of adverse outcomes in litigation. The proven compliance platform also offers significant savings by reducing labor costs associated with legal holds by more than 75 percent which delivers an ROI of more than 260 percent in the first year.
