Extract from Ricoh's "Case Study: Federal Government Agency"
With deadlines fast approaching, the agency needed a partner to help them cull down the FOIA request information into a manageable data set. Fortunately, this type of engagement is extremely well suited to Ricoh's extensive experience providing eDiscovery services.
Once we became involved in this specific FOIA request, we reviewed 500 gigabytes of electronic information — emails, policy documents and incident reports — to process the data and comply with the order to produce for the court. To cull down the large data set, we first deduplicated and filtered information by date and put it into our cloud-based review tool. We then established a workflow to determine if each document was responsive to a request.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!

As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
