Legal Solutions Provider Epiq Systems Appointed Intelligent Voice(R) Platinum Partner to Boost Audio eDiscovery Practice

LONDON, April 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Epiq Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:EPIQ), a leading global provider of integrated technology solutions for the legal profession, announced today that it has been appointed as the first Platinum partner for Intelligent Voice®, the leading audio transcription and review platform.

Epiq has invested in new, highly-available audio review technology to solve the challenges faced by corporations and law firms when trying to access, filter and review audio evidence as a source of discovery content in litigation, regulatory investigations, regular monitoring activity and internal investigations.

Using Intelligent Voice®'s technology, Epiq will provide a unique early case assessment capability for voice, including the "JumpTo™" technology which gives a visual snapshot of the content of any audio or video file as text, greatly speeding up review time and reducing overall costs. Epiq will offer the JumpTo player integration through its proprietary review tool, Documatrix™ and through Relativity®.

"Audio recordings are an essential part of compliance and discovery for many businesses," said Robert Hopen, Vice President and General Manager, Europe for Epiq Systems. "But unless you deploy the right technology and process, audio can be time consuming and expensive to review. By partnering with Intelligent Voice, Epiq has further enhanced its workflow, enabling it to continue to offer market leading audio solutions."

"Our two companies have worked very closely over the last twelve months to provide a highly-scalable, user-friendly review platform that makes audio review as simple as regular document review," said Chief Technology Officer of Intelligent Voice, Nigel Cannings. "Epiq has trained its support and technical teams to a very high level, and has made extensive investment to install Intelligent Voice to its data centres in the US and the UK, with plans for further expansion by years' end. Because of this, we are delighted to be able to award Epiq Platinum status."
