U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Selects Clearwell eDiscovery Platform Through Government Acquisitions
CINCINNATI, OH, Dec 19, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Government Acquisitions in partnership with Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ:
SYMC) today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office
(USPTO) has selected the Clearwell eDiscovery Platform to streamline
its electronic discovery processes. Clearwell enables USPTO officials
to efficiently manage and analyze documents through search, review,
tagging and exporting.
Clearwell's strengths include advanced search, advanced analytics and
the ability to automatically eliminate duplicate information -- which
play a key role in cost reduction. In addition, Clearwell provides
users with the ability to review, tag and export documents.
"With millions of U.S. patents and trademarks in force, not to
mention hundreds of thousands of new applications each year, the
amount of electronically stored information that the PTO generates
and manages is astounding," said Gigi Schumm, vice president and
general manager for Symantec Public Sector. "Clearwell turns the
complex and costly eDiscovery process into a streamlined, manageable
and cost-efficient operation for the agency."
The Clearwell eDiscovery Platform is an enterprise-class solution
that was purpose-built for eDiscovery. With Clearwell, customers can
utilize several features such as transparent search, discussion
threads and people analytics to significantly accelerate early case
assessment, defensibly eliminate irrelevant documents and false
positives, and rapidly perform a first-pass review. Clearwell also
lets customers view all related documents in context, perform
one-click tagging, redact documents and apply reason codes in order
to increase review throughput and consistency. In addition, the
Clearwell eDiscovery Platform meets stringent security standards and
automatically tracks all actions on case documents throughout the
eDiscovery workflow, ensuring a defensible eDiscovery process.
