Products[edit]

Exterro Fusion Platform[edit]

Exterro Fusion Platform

Fusion is a Web-based software platform that can be deployed behind an enterprise's firewall, in a hosted deployment model, or through a SaaS-based "cloud" model, upon which several software offerings for the legal industry are built. Currently, the Fusion platform comprises Fusion Genome, Fusion Legal Hold, Fusion Discovery Workflow Management, Fusion Zeta and Fusion LawFirm. [1] Each solution can be used separately or together as an end-to-end workflow management. [6] Fusion combines business process management with collaboration capabilities and centralized management in an integrated environment.[7][dead link] The Fusion platform was recently awarded silver in the sixth annual Law Technology News awards.[8][dead link] Each Fusion solution can integrate with HR, asset and matter-management systems as well as collection, processing and review tools, through Exterro's Fusion Integration Hub

Fusion Genome[edit]

Fusion Genome [2] is a workflow-based data mapping solution for describing and locating electronically stored information (ESI). It allows enterprises to identify, analyze and manage the risks associated with ESI, including litigation preparation and compliance measures.[9] Genome automatically refreshes its view of ESI inventories from asset management and other systems and with periodic updates from data stewards responsible for that information. [10][dead link]

Fusion Legal Hold[edit]

Fusion Legal Hold [3] is designed to help lawyers, paralegals and their counterparts to manage the legal hold process. [11][not in citation given]

Exterro's Fusion Legal Hold enables counsel to track each legal hold from issuance and acknowledgment through collection, processing, and eventual rescission of the hold order—and can automate the process of providing status and reminder notices to appropriate custodians. [12][not in citation given]

The Fusion application for legal hold allows users to institute a repeatable legal hold process, manage enterprise custodians and data sources, plan, conduct and track interviews with key custodians, and streamline collection workflow.[13][dead link]

Fusion Discovery Workflow Management[edit]

Fusion Discovery Workflow Management [4] helps lawyers, paralegals, other counsel and experts manage the electronic discovery process via a Web-based portal.[14] Law firms, corporate legal departments and other users can monitor progress, track budgets and costs, set and manage schedules, and evaluate vendor performance from within the application.
