New feature makes it simple to import popular web email like Gmail or Yahoo Mail into Trial Cloud and Discovery Cloud platform.
December 11, 2012 – Nextpoint, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of cloud-based regulatory, compliance, and litigation software, has automated the import of email from web services into Discovery Cloud ™, and Trial Cloud™ services. This new Import Email option makes it possible for litigators to rapidly and cost-effectively manage web-based email content for any trial, regulatory demand, or other legal matter.
Organizations and individuals increasingly rely on webmail for easy access to their email on any device, meaning webmail will play a central role in almost any litigation. Nextpoint makes it simple to import email from cloud-based services such as Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail. Users simply enter the appropriate email configuration and credentials and all email and associated metadata is imported for litigation review. This feature is available to all users of Nextpoint’s Trial Cloud and Discovery Cloud.
Discovery of Internet content, including social media, website, dynamic, and cloud-based content poses a special challenge to litigators. According to IDC Research, by 2015 one of every seven dollars spent on software, server, and storage offerings will be spent on cloud-based services, including web-based email systems. Nextpoint offers a range of support for the collection and processing of cloud data, including full-service SmartCrawl Collections for complex projects as well as self-service data processing options like the new Import Email option.
Nextpoint was an early adopter of cloud technology and is a thought leader on the discovery of Internet content in litigation. This release provides corporations, law firms and government agencies with the ability to quickly and efficiently process email and content from the most likely sources of digital evidence. The introduction of this important new capability is just one example of Nextpoint’s commitment to ensuring litigators can more effectively manage Internet content in litigation.
