Guidance Software and kCura Expand Partnership
Guidance Software, the maker of EnCase, and kCura plan to jointly offer an end-to-end e-discovery solution including RelativityOne, a cloud-based version of the e-discovery platform Relativity, and Guidance EnCase eDiscovery, which provides collection and preservation capabilities. The integrated solutions will work together to address customer needs at every stage of the e-discovery process, according to the companies.
The agreements reinforce Guidance Software and kCura’s shared strategy to provide the best technology across the entire e-discovery process, according to Guidance Software CEO Patrick Dennis. By bringing their solutions together, he noted, the companies can make customers more efficient as they face ever-increasing caseloads.
In addition, the integration of RelativityONE with EnCase also aligns with kCura’s vision of bringing the entire e-discovery process and community together in one connected platform, added Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura
Announced in October, the integration of EnCase and Relativity enabled legal and IT teams to move their data from EnCase into Relativity more quickly and intelligently. The joint offering of EnCase eDiscovery and RelativityOne builds on the technical integration, providing customers of EnCase eDiscovery Review with a migration path to transition to RelativityOne moving forward, while kCura will offer EnCase eDiscovery to Relativity and RelativityOne customers as an option for collection.
Both companies will share more information on the integration and partnership at Guidance’s EnFuse 2017 conference in Las Vegas (May 22-25) and at kCura’s Relativity Fest 2017 in Chicago (October 22-25).
