Pitney Bowes Introduces PB Discovery Portal to Connect Clients with eDiscovery Services
Innovative Portal Provides Fast, Secure Transmission of Discovery Data and Easy Job Submission
STAMFORD, Conn., August 10, 2011 - Pitney Bowes Management Services (PBMS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE: PBI), today introduced PB Discovery, a new online portal that will bring offsite eDiscovery services to the client’s desktop. PB Discovery enables users to price, submit, proof and manage eDiscovery processing jobs from their desktop 24/7, anywhere in the world.
“PB Discovery will change the way law firms, government agencies and corporate legal departments process eDiscovery data,” said Perry Gile, vice president, document solutions, Pitney Bowes Management Services. “Our clients will now have the processing capabilities of our National Processing Center at their fingertips, from job submission to final proof. They will be empowered to manage their eDiscovery processing through the entire process from their desktop, 24/7.”
PB Discovery eliminates the time and expense of transferring discovery data physically via expedited carrier, local courier, trucking service, etc., for processing and provides a fast, easy and secure digital dashboard to manage discovery workflow. Pitney Bowes clients will now have a direct connection to its National Processing Center, one of the country’s top data processing centers, which can handle more than 27 terabytes of data monthly.
“The direction of the e-discovery industry is evolving rapidly,” according to Gartner Research*. “Increasing levels of process automation for identifying, preserving and collecting information are enabling the enterprise to find needles in the haystack. In-house processing of rudimentary e-discovery tasks versus outsourcing via law firms dramatically reduces cost and risk.”
“Pitney Bowes has more than 30 years of experience providing mail, print and document management services to the Am Law 200, Fortune 1000 and large government organizations, said Vicki O’Meara, executive vice president and president, Pitney Bowes Services Solutions. “We’ve been building and investing in our eDiscovery services and capabilities since 2005. Our innovation in this area has enabled us to create an outsourced services model, now enhanced by PB Discovery, which delivers the highest level of quality and security at a very competitive price point.”
