KANSAS CITY, Kan., July 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Iris Data Services, an Epiq Systems (Nasdaq:EPIQ) company and the leader in eDiscovery managed services, won the ALM Legaltech News Innovation Award for Best Managed Service Provider on the strength of their Iris ArcSM offering. This award comes on the heels of the Best Service Provider Solution Award that Arc won at kCura's Relativity Fest Innovation Awards in 2014.

"Our accomplishments are defined by the success of our clients," said Major Baisden, managing director of eDiscovery managed services at Iris. "It's rewarding to see how Iris Arc is changing the eDiscovery landscape by giving clients the ability to take on cases that they otherwise wouldn't be able to handle internally."
