Quantum Discovery Announces Acquisition Of Indiana-based Preferred Imaging
By Calvin Azuri, TMCnet Contributor
Quantum (News - Alert) Discovery recently announced that it has successfully acquired Indianapolis, Indiana-based Preferred Imaging, leading provider of service litigation support and e-discovery solutions to law firms and corporate legal departments across the Midwest. Quantum Discovery’s expertise lies in electronic discovery services and serving law firms and corporations.
In a statement, Brett Crist, President of Preferred Imaging, said that, "With Viewpoint, clients can simplify the collection, processing, analysis, review and management of data across complex information sources, including social media, servers, email and desktops, all from a single platform with fully integrated functionality. With this acquisition, Preferred Imaging can now provide a completely different level of support to our client base."
With its latest acquisition, Quantum Discovery has effectively expanded its national presence, and established its position within the Midwest market. The company specializes in delivering advanced electronic discovery solutions based on Viewpoint. Lateral Data, a Xerox company, is the developer of Viewpoint which has been designed as an all-in-one e-discovery platform that supports and improves management of e-discovery projects of the company’s clients.
Matt McCormack, President, and CEO of Quantum Discovery said that, "We felt the opportunity to bring the Preferred Imaging team into the Quantum Discovery family was a very attractive fit. The company has long standing client relationships, a respected name in the Indianapolis marketplace and significant e-discovery experience and bench strength. In addition, the Viewpoint platform offers advanced capabilities for filtering and processing data up to five times faster than any e-discovery software, giving clients the ability to conduct early case assessments and analyze relevant data sooner. Furthermore, the fully integrated Viewpoint Assisted Review tool has been proven to save our clients millions in attorney review fees. We believe Preferred Imaging can leverage this solution to provide significant cost-savings to their clients."
Post the acquisition, the management team and employees of Preferred Imaging will continue to remain with the company and its offices will not be shifted from Indianapolis.
