This follows similar adoptions of the same e-discovery platform in the firm’s other global offices.

One of the four biggest independent professional services firm providing audit, tax and advisory services in Singapore has undergone digital transformation by being the first in the sector to adopt a secure end-to-end e-discovery Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) e-discovery platform.

The solution allows the firm to manage large volumes of data in complex litigation, investigation, and regulatory proceedings that can help clients boost business productivity and risk management. 

The firm, KPMG, can now allow members across Asia to tap into the platform for e-discovery investigations ranging from collections to processing; hosting; analytics; document review services and creating robust workflows with leading-edge technology. Said KPMG’s Partner, Head of Forensic Technology (Asia Pacific), Eddie Toh: “We are pleased to be using RelativityOne to provide insight-driven solutions to increasingly complex and large volumes of data for our clients. The e-discovery solution 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.” 

The aforementioned SaaS product, RelativityOne, will enable KPMG to reassess clients’ large volumes of data by taking control and reducing the data to a manageable size using customized workflows to ensure relevant data is identified and disclosed quickly and accurately. Additionally, the platform, which is already in use in KPMG’s other global offices, has rigorous security processes to provide 24/7 cloud security to protect clients’ data while it is being worked on.

Such digitalization empowers firms in the sector to solve data challenges and improve review accuracy and efficiency for clients through customized solutions. Clients would then be able to focus on litigation proceedings after having the complexities of deciphering discovery processes resolved.

According to said Georgia Foster, Managing Director (APAC), 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.”
