SAN JOSE, Calif. – January 29, 2020 – FileTrail, the leader in next-generation information governance and records management software for law firms and highly regulated industries, will unveil version 2.0 of its popular FileTrail GPS™ (Governance Policy Suite) at Legalweek New York 2020 being held February 4-6. The updated release includes significant new functionality and a streamlined user interface designed to make information workers even more efficient and productive.

FileTrail, which recently announced its 20-year anniversary, is the leading provider of comprehensive IG solutions for law firms. Since its launch in 2018, FileTrail GPS has seen significant adoption as the legal profession pursues an increasingly holistic and rigorous approach to information governance and compliance.

FileTrail GPS now includes:

  • Policy Manager to implement retention, holds and outside counsel guidelines for documents and records
  • Records Manager to create, locate, track and audit physical records
  • Mobility Manager to streamline lateral moves and client requests

All three core modules of FileTrail GPS work in concert to advance IG, helping law firms save money, reduce risk and address increasingly stringent client and regulatory compliance obligations.

Prominent, progressive law firms in the U.S. and abroad, including Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, Hogan Lovells, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, Shook, Hardy & Bacon, Foley & Lardner LLP and others report significant cost savings and risk reductions since implementing FileTrail GPS. FileTrail routinely consults with its client firms on best practices for achieving true compliance with the policies and regulations they must adhere to, so that they can effectively pursue their client service and growth objectives.

“FileTrail GPS has significantly improved the way law firms approach information governance, both in terms of compliance with their internal policies and managing outside counsel guidelines,” says FileTrail CEO Darrell Mervau. “We are incredibly proud of the success we’ve had helping our law firm customers achieve their IG and records management visions over the past 20 years – and we’re looking forward to the even greater achievements on the road ahead.”

Legalweek 2020 attendees are invited to visit FileTrail at booth 503 in the exhibit hall throughout the conference to learn about its latest advancements in records and IG and to see an in-person demonstration of FileTrail GPS 2.0.


CloudNine just launched CloudNine Collection Manager™ (“Collection Manager”), a breakthrough data extraction solution from the global electronic discovery technology provider.  Installed in minutes, Collection Manager defensibly performs native data collections from Office 365 (O365) email custodians, as well as Microsoft OneDrive cloud storage files.

Collection Manager is easy enough for first-time collectors, yet powerful enough for discovery professionals.  Collection Manager quickly and securely connects to O365 and OneDrive data sources, including documents linked from email messages, which few other collection solutions can do. The software’s wizard interface guides collectors to browse and select one or multiple data custodians, filter by date, and extract data to desired formats such as PSTs or Zip files for loose documents.  Collection Manager then sends extracted files to target hard drives, jump drives, or network drives or early case assessment products such as CloudNine Explore™ and others.

Highly flexible and adaptable, Collection Manager seamlessly fits within the workflow of many eDiscovery products and automatically integrates with its sister product, CloudNine Explore.  With a single click, data collectors can output data from Collection Manager directly into Explore cases, and the ingested data is automatically processed and analyzed.  Explore can then be configured to automatically notify lawyers via email when data is ready to be immediately searched and reviewed.

Collection Manager joins CloudNine’s robust suite of eDiscovery software including Explore, Review™, LAW™, and Concordance®.  For ultimate flexibility, CloudNine software can work as a fully integrated end-to-end eDiscovery system, or each solution can be used as an independent, best-in-breed product to fit into any eDiscovery workflow.

“CloudNine Collection Manager debuts as a remarkably powerful and flexible native collection solution for today’s enterprise collection demands,” commented Tony Caputo, CEO of CloudNine.  “Collection Manager’s ability to defensibly collect and extract data from both Office 365 and OneDrive will be a ‘Must Have’ for many of our clients.  Since the software installs in minutes and requires no training, it is universally accessible for any collection project and any skill level.  Our eDiscovery partners, as well as law firm and corporate clients, have been eagerly anticipating the release of Collection Manager, and we are confident they will benefit substantially from the new technology.”

“The CloudNine development team worked tirelessly to ensure that Collection Manager is capable of handling complex native collections while also being extremely easy to use,” said Doug Austin, Vice President of Products and Professional Services at CloudNine.  “Collection Manager is automatically integrated with Explore but also versatile because it works within the workflow of many other eDiscovery products as well.  We are incredibly proud to offer Collection Manager and look forward to assisting our partners and clients as they increasingly use the system to complete their native data collections.”
