Ninth generation Catalyst e-discovery document repository provides greater search performance, ease-of-use and automated production management

DENVER, Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Catalyst Repository Systems, Inc., (, a pioneer in providing cloud-based document repositories for e-discovery and other complex legal matters, today introduced version 9.0 of its flagship product, Catalyst CR. The new version includes a fully integrated production module, expanded correlation navigators, review module enhancements and a new user interface. Most notably Catalyst CR 9.0 updates include features requested by Catalyst's expanding user base and represent a significant step towards putting complete control of the e-discovery process in the hands of Catalyst CR users, from processing to production, while maximizing efficiency and scalability.

New features in the Catalyst CR 9.0 platform include:

  • A fully automated production module that allows users to identify and folder documents for productions, convert and endorse them in a variety of formats, create load files, and run productions.
  • Enhanced "Correlation Navigators" that allow users to analyze search results using a variety of fields, text, and concepts—all drawn dynamically from the user's search across millions of documents.
  • Searchable review folders allowing reviewers and administrators to build any combination of field and text searches to check for privileged, sensitive and other key information before releasing the documents.
  • Review module enhancements that provide more control for review administrators and allow administrators to assign, modify assignments more easily and provide new capabilities for user self assignments.
  • New export options that provide faster output and more flexibility including MDB formats.
  • A revised user interface that provides more rapid and intuitive access to Catalyst CR and its productivity modules.

"Automating the e-discovery process and delivering it via a secure cloud has been Catalyst's mission for more than a decade," explained John Tredennick, Catalyst's founder and CEO. "Our goal is put full control of their e-discovery processing in our client's hands—as much as they might have if they used an appliance in-house. The difference with our cloud-based product is scale. Our clients can run the product from end-to-end but have the advantage of hundreds of servers working on their behalf. They also get a dedicated team of savvy professionals to continually update and enhance the system."

Catalyst began automating the e-discovery process with the availability of Fast Track Data Loading. Since its availability 18 months ago, Fast Track has processed over 10,000 automatic data loads. Catalyst built on this success in early 2010 with Fast Track Automated Processing, which allows users to upload raw files directly into Catalyst for processing and loading. The features in Catalyst CR 9.0 achieve the goal of complete system automation. Now, those same users can export and produce documents themselves—in any volume or format.

Catalyst CR 9.0 turns the e-discovery services model on its head with the first integrated e-discovery product covering the heart of the litigation lifecycle—from processing and loading raw files to search, analytics, culling, review and production. Because the data and process are hosted in the cloud, the Catalyst CR platform effectively eliminates IT and system administration costs. That frees the litigation management team to focus on review and analysis, rather than software administration.
