KLDiscovery and Consilio Partner to Provide On-Site Collections During COVID-19 Concerns
WASHINGTON & MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Consilio and KLDiscovery today announced a partnership to provide global collections assistance for their clients in response to on-going travel advisories and restrictions due to COVID-19. The agreement aims to leverage each organization's local resources to reduce employee travel and prevent service disruptions for their customers.
The companies welcome additional providers in the industry to join this initiative and further expand the shared geographic footprint.
In addition to having local collections presence in the United States, the companies also have a combined collections presence in:
- Hong Kong
- United Kingdom
Defensible self-collections are also available worldwide as an alternative to traditional on-site collections. Forensically-sound collections are performed by IT professionals or end users, and then encrypted files are shipped back to a secure lab.
"This is a significant moment in the eDiscovery community," said Chris Weiler, CEO of KLDiscovery. "Our partnership demonstrates a deep commitment to service excellence and employee well-being in the face of unprecedented business challenges. I'm certain the collective ingenuity of our industry and society will overcome the obstacles ahead."
"We have developed this unique partnership to minimize travel and potential COVID-19 exposure for our employees, while also maintaining our commitment to superior client service," said Andy Macdonald, CEO of Consilio. "We invite other providers in the industry to join our collaborative effort to ensure we continue to deliver on critical client needs across a wide number of geographies."
