Toronto, Nov. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BDO, one of the world’s leading professional services firms, today announced it is expanding the firm’s global e-discovery capabilities in Canada, Australia, Norway, and Germany with the addition of Relativity’s SaaS platform. With the addition of these four markets, the BDO network now offers RelativityOne in six regions across the globe including the United States and Brazil, adding to their global capabilities of 30 labs on six continents.  “Adding RelativityOne to our services portfolio in Canada, Australia, Norway, and Germany enables us to provide a globally consistent client experience,” said Jenna Aira-Ventrella, Managing Director in BDO USA’s Forensic Technology Services practice, leading global e-discovery services. “BDO’s multinational clients will benefit from a single solution for the entire e-discovery process, including the latest in advanced analytics and data processing, along with the increased flexibility and performance of the cloud.”
BDO clients can use RelativityOne on complex, cross-border data matters with confidence, knowing that the platform is hosted in the secure Microsoft Azure Cloud. RelativityOne also gives BDO users the added flexibility and extensibility to pick and choose solutions from the Relativity App Hub that best suit their unique workflows across different stages of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM)—and solve data challenges outside of e-discovery.
“We understand the importance of document review to efficiently and effectively conduct investigations and manage litigation,” said Alan Mak, National Forensics Practice Leader at BDO Canada. “RelativityOne is a powerful tool that enables us to better serve our clients in investigative and litigation support matters, both here in Canada and as part of a world-class team.”
BDO is a RelativityOne Silver Partner, further demonstrating the firm’s continued focus on delivering the highest standard of service, an exceptional experience, and client satisfaction.
“We are thrilled to see BDO expand their global business with the addition of our SaaS platform in these four new regions,” said Peter Kim, VP Sales at Relativity. “BDO is a valued Relativity partner with a long history of expertise using our platform. We look forward to further supporting BDO’s team when solving unique data challenges across the globe with the added security and scalability that RelativityOne offers.”
