BuzzFeed uses the collaboration platform Slack to augment email and its other modes of internal communication. As a result, its legal and IT teams wanted to ensure they were prepared to identify, review, and produce Slack data in response to ediscovery matters and investigations. BuzzFeed needed a tool that could efficiently locate, preserve, and export that data in a review-ready format.



  • Quickly and easily search through Slack users and channels to identify relevant information
  • Seamlessly export that information in a reviewable format
  • Confidently state that all relevant data had been identified and considered—demonstrating defensible processes
