Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) November 01, 2013

UBIC, Inc. (TSE: 2158; NASDAQ: UBIC), a provider of strategic international litigation support through CJK TAR™ (Technology Assisted Review) and multi-faceted forensic solutions, has developed “Easy Hold”, a tool that efficiently and accurately executes the litigation hold process. The success or failure of an eDiscovery undertaking hinges on a properly deployed litigation hold and the Easy Hold tool combines all the features that customers need in a seamless litigation platform.

UBIC supports international investigations and litigation globally by including the Easy Hold tool within the current proprietary technology platform, Lit i View™ version 6.7. The unique feature of Easy Hold is the integrated management of the status of litigation holds involved in multiple matters which enables the sharing of information among departments and providing a consistent approach to litigation holds on a corporate-wide basis.

When litigation is anticipated, the first step a company must take is to establish a comprehensive litigation hold for all relevant electronically stored information (ESI) held by individual custodians. A litigation hold is meant to prevent the deletion or modification of any evidence related to the litigation. Outside counsel must work closely with internal legal departments to define the scope of each litigation hold so that appropriate departments and individuals can be contacted and given instructions for preserving the relevant ESI in their custody.

“UBIC is committed to investing in product development with new and advanced technology features to aid the investigations in the United States and internationally to speed up efficiency and accuracy early in in the litigation hold portion of a case matter,” quoted Mr. Masahiro Morimoto, co-founder & CEO, UBIC.

The Main Functions of Easy Hold Include:

Unified Data Management

Easy Hold is part of a strong unified data management capability that delivers various tasks associated with litigation hold and is included as a part of the Lit i View™ one-stop service.

Intuitive Content Creation

A critical component of any litigation hold process is to track all communication with departments and custodians and Easy Hold is designed so that each recipient of the litigation hold notice can easily reply. And since Lit i View supports complex Asian-languages like Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK), communications can be crafted in CJK with ease. Multi-language capabilities combined with user-friendly communication means that individuals can reply quickly and efficiently.

The Communication & Statistics Function

Easy Hold allows customers to track all communications with departments and custodians so as to avoid omissions in litigation hold communications and substantiate the notifications sent to custodians.

Litigation Hold Management Function

Easy Hold facilitates the uncomplicated litigation hold management of each matter by allowing customers to track the status and progress of custodians across multiple holds for multiple cases.
