KPMG Becomes First Big Four Firm in Asia to Reinforce Cloud Confidence via RelativityOne
KPMG Expands Partnership with Relativity
2 February 2021, Singapore – KPMG in Singapore, today announced an expansion of its partnership with Relativity to offer cloud-based RelativityOne for forensic investigation. KPMG is the first Big Four firm in Asia to offer RelativityOne, a secure end-to-end e-discovery Softwareas-a-Service (SaaS) product that manages large volumes of data in complex litigation, investigation, and regulatory proceedings for clients to achieve optimal outcomes towards increasing business productivity and managing risks.
Through the deployment of RelativityOne, KPMG in Singapore enables member firms across Asia to tap into the platform, supporting enhanced end-to-end technology solutions involving e-discovery investigations for clients. Conducted by a team of over 70 forensic subject matter experts in Singapore, the deployment of RelativityOne will enable KPMG to reassess clients’ large volume of data by taking control and reduce the data to a manageable size using customised workflows to ensure relevant data is identified and disclosed quickly and accurately. Additionally, RelativityOne has rigorous security processes to provide 24/7 cloud security to protect clients’ data while it is being worked on, which is becoming increasingly important due to the rise of cyberattacks and data breaches.
Mr. Eddie Toh, Partner, Head of Forensic Technology, Asia Pacific, at KPMG in Singapore, said, “We are pleased to be working with Relativity in harnessing the scalability of RelativityOne to provide insight-driven solutions to increasingly complex and large volumes of data for our clients. Relativity’s market-leading e-discovery solution, including Relativity Analytics’ capabilities, will truly benefit our clients as they gain full control over their data securely and uncover key facts to respond to litigation requests quickly at lower cost.”
Globally, KPMG has built a strong relationship with Relativity and has adopted RelativityOne in other regions to solve data challenges and improve review accuracy and efficiency for clients through customised solutions. Clients are now better focused on litigation proceedings after having the complexities of deciphering discovery processes resolved.
“As KPMG has been one of our largest consultancy partners for a decade, it’s exciting to watch them innovate in the cloud and expand their RelativityOne offerings across Asia,” said Georgia Foster, Managing Director, APAC at Relativity. “We continue to see increased demand from the Asian e-discovery market, and this move enables KPMG in Singapore to help local customers move into the cloud seamlessly and securely.”
The synergies between KPMG subject matter professionals and the proven methodologies of RelativityOne enhance every stage of e-discovery, from collections to processing, hosting, analytics, and document review services, creating robust workflows with leading-edge technology.
