AXS-One Updates new Compliance Platform

By Greg McNevin

December 13, 2007: AXS-One has introduced what it is calling the industry’s first complete archive solution for data preservation and case management in the form of its new Compliance Platform 3.7.

According to the company, the new version of its flagship product is much-enhanced over the last, and is optimised for scalability and policy-driven data retention.

Dubbed the Data Preservation Edition, 3.7 provides integrated functionality to ensure that records pertaining to a specific case or cases are preserved and managed in line with litigation hold orders, and that an auditable chain of custody supports testimony requirements.

AXS-One claims that the software’s availability has been timed to coincide with the first anniversary of the amended Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), which introduced new rules for the discovery and handling of electronic records in Federal courts.

“The FRCP amendments have truly exposed the fragility of so many companies' records management policies and technology. With so much focus on data preservation and strict timelines for discovery orders, customers are starting to re-evaluate their previous technology decisions and are demanding tools that allow them to become pro-active about litigation readiness as well as be able to handle more of the process in-house,” said Bill Lyons, CEO of AXS-One.

Lyons claims that as far as the courts are concerned, if a particular record cannot be found it may as well not exist. Due to this, even careful archiving efforts can come undone without proper preservation tools. Lyons says that a comprehensive records management system with 'self service' case management is exactly what the market needs to counter increasingly hefty compliance regulations.
