eDiscovery company UBIC originated in Japan and quickly established a niche for its specialist skills in handling Chinese, Japanese and Korean languages in line with the expansion of trade between those countries and the US.
Its eDiscovery software Lit i View draws heavily on UBIC’s parallel strand of developing artificial intelligence applications, not just for legal and eDiscovery purposes but for a wide range of verticals including medical industries.
Last year, UBIC acquired TechLaw Solutions, to promote both UBIC’s brand recognition in the US and the expansion of channels to market.
UBIC has now followed that by acquiring eDiscovery company EvD, Inc. Where TechLaw Solutions offered opportunities primarily on the US East Coast, EvD will have the same effect on the West Coast. Amongst other benefits, EvD brings an operations centre in Manila which provides data processing services.
There is a press release with further information about this acquisition here.
