SFL Data Announces 229 Percent Increase in Revenue from Hosting Client ESI in Relativity
Managed Service Provider Facilitates Client Access to Interactive Web-based Electronic Discovery Review Platform
San Francisco, Calif. – March 1, 2012 – SFL Data, the first provider of a fixed-price eDiscovery managed service for corporations and law firms, today announced a 229 percent increase in revenue generated since January 2011 from hosting clients’ electronically stored information (ESI) in Relativity, a web-based eDiscovery platform. Relativity provides customized workflows to manage, track and report terabytes of data for law firm and corporate clients. Through SFL Data, these clients have access to interactive Relativity demos, 24/7 operational support, secure infrastructure and more. Specifically, the platform offers image and native file review, diverse coding options, flexible workflow capabilities, integrated productions, foreign language support, text analytics and visual data analysis.
“The capacity to defensibly host our clients’ data speaks volumes about our team’s ability to provide end-to-end support for clients on a long-term basis. In fact, recurring hosting revenue enables us to invest more boldly back into the systems and software that enable us to provide cost-effective eDiscovery managed services,” said SFL Data CEO Christian Lawrence. “As we get ready for tonight’s 2012 Best Bay Area Corporate Counsel Awards event, it’s a great feeling knowing that we’re equipped to serve these top litigators and corporations.”
SFL Data is a Relativity Certified Reseller licensed to sell the software directly to its clients. Last year, the company was recognized as a Relativity Best in Service partner after an evaluation of its technical capabilities, sales performance, strength of references, and achieved status. Earlier this week, SFL Data announced that two more of its litigation support analysts earned Relativity Certified Administrator status, for a total of four recognized Relativity software experts.
