With its eDiscovery review tool iCONECT-XERA, iCONECT has emphasised the importance of software which does more than perform a function. iCONECT-XERA looks good as well.
There is more to this than mere aesthetics. Users spend all day working with the review tools, and iCONECT is committed to making that experience as pleasant as possible, not just to please the users but because they work better and more efficiently as a result.
iCONECT has carried that same logic into its redevelopment of premises in London, Ontario, where it has its headquarters, in offices which merge the traditional and the new (in the same way, perhaps, as review software brings new technology to an old process).
The building, now called #2 Bathurst, was originally built in 1894 as the “London Street Railway” powerhouse. It subsequently became a bus station and, as soon as iCONECT CEO Ian Campbell saw its wide open spaces and tall doors, he realised its potential as an attractive working space with full-height windows in place of the garage doors.
There are are obvious similarities between a construction project and an eDiscovery project, and Ian Campbell and his team set about the conversion of the property with the same spirit as iCONECT brings to eDiscovery.
The project is recorded in this website (start at the bottom to see the process of development). The project captured the eye of local journalists who made a video about it.
