NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FRONTEO USA, Inc. (“FRONTEO USA”), a wholly-owned direct subsidiary of FRONTEO, Inc. (“FRONTEO”) (formerly known as UBIC, Inc.) (NASDAQ:FTEO) (TSE:2158), a leading provider of global eDiscovery and managed review solutions, and big-data analysis services utilizing artificial intelligence technology, announced today the opening of a new FRONTEO sales and operations center in London, United Kingdom under the leadership of James MacGregor, vice president of European eDisclosure services at FRONTEO.
The new FRONTEO EMEA Ltd., a subsidiary of FRONTEO USA, was established to meet the growing need for full service eDisclosure consulting and managed services in the UK, EU and Middle East. The London offices will serve as EMEA center of operations for comprehensive services, including:
- Forensic collection and Electronically Stored Information (ESI) advisory services
- ESI preservation, processing and review
- Secure document hosting and review on the Relativity platform
- Cross-border eDisclosure and multi-language support
- A business intelligence (BI) portal for project and budget control
- Advanced analytics and predictive coding
- Managed review & staffing
In addition to the expanded services team, a permanent London review center is planned in the near future. “Our clients are experiencing unabated growth in data volumes and case activity,” said MacGregor. “European-work represents almost a quarter of the nearly $15 billion worldwide market for eDisclosure and eDiscovery software and services, and FRONTEO is committed to providing this region with the same exceptional services that FRONTEO is known for in the U.S. and Asia.”
“It’s a changing world in European eDisclosure these days,” says attorney, author and eDisclosure expert Chris Dale. “Challenges include the pending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the invalidation of Safe Harbour and its replacement with the Privacy Shield, and high profile privacy moves against Google and other companies. FRONTEO brings a wealth of experience and talent to help clients navigate the many challenges of eDisclosure in a volatile environment.”
The FRONTEO EMEA offices are located at 2 Leman Street, London, E1 8FA, UK. Information on FRONTEO EMEA services may be found at http://www.fronteo.com/emea.
