TransPerfect Legal Solutions (TLS) and Index Engines tackle legacy data discovery with Preferred Partnership


Index Engines names TLS its first Preferred Partner, forming a union between expert eDiscovery resources and best-in-class indexing technology

Holmdel NJ - Information management company Index Engines named eDiscovery service provider TransPerfect Legal Solutions (TLS) as the first partner to join their new Preferred Partner Program.

This unique partnership enables Index Engines and TLS to collaborate on large-scale eDiscovery projects, providing a full-service collaboration for law firms and inside counsel in need of ESI collection and management.

“We’ve worked with TLS for the past three years and their company-wide work ethic and commitment to excellence is second to none,” Index Engines Vice President David Ballard said. “We’re thrilled to be working with them on a closer level and announce them as the first member of our elite Preferred Partner Program.”

To become a Preferred Partner, TLS professionals underwent rigorous training on Index Engines’ technology and had to show a proven track record of using the technology in eDiscovery projects.

TLS easily met the requirements having frequently used Index Engines’ Octane platform to remediate legacy tapes, as opposed to sending them out for restoration, a method that increases accuracy and decreases processing time.

“We pride ourselves on delivering the most accurate, complete results and surpassing our clients’ expectations on every project,” added Michael Wudke, President of Forensic Technology and Consulting, TLS. “Our partnership with Index Engines allows us to add more value to our clients and service more of their projects. We’re excited to continue working with Index Engines.”

In this partnership, Index Engines provides legacy tape processing or licensing services, remote hosting of the search interface, extraction of identified files, delivery of extracted data and CoC tracking if data is processed in its Cloud Services Lab.

TLS in return takes over the project management portion, delivers the interface to the end user, and can provide a number of value-added services including query preparation, bates stamping and hosting case management tools.
