TABS Wins Prestigious Software Product of the Year Award
IRVINE, CA (May 5, 2008) – Toshiba America Business Solutions Inc. (TABS) proudly announced today that e-BRIDGE Re-Search™ has captured the “Software Product of the Year” award from the Orange County chapter of AeA, the largest high-tech trade association in the U.S. Presented to TABS at the 15th Annual AeA High-Tech Innovation Awards, held on April 29 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Irvine, Calif., the “Software Product of the Year” award identifies the most pioneering and forward-thinking solutions designed, developed and distributed by technology companies based in California’s Orange and Inland Empire counties.
“AeA was very pleased with the high-quality of nominations this year. The level of innovation was truly impressive,” said Don Hicks, executive director, AeA Orange County/Inland Empire. “AeA congratulates Toshiba and its employees for developing the award winning e-BRIDGE Re-Search software.”
Toshiba’s e-BRIDGE Re-Search software is the first unified, cross-platform, distributed data management system to provide businesses with the ability to automatically index, track and recall archived documents with a single software solution.
e-BRIDGE Re-Search empowers customers to not just find the right information, anyplace, anywhere, at anytime, whether it is on on-line, near-line, or off-line storage, but also perform data management actions on the distributed data. This easy-to-use and intuitive e-Discovery solution brings businesses to 100 percent compliance with the Dec. 1, 2006 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedures (FRCP).
“We are very proud to have won this product innovation award from such a respected organization as the AeA,” said Steve Rhorer, vice president and general manager, Electronic Imaging Division, TABS. “Having Re-Search singled-out with such an honor demonstrates that we are delivering on our promise: to continue to lead innovation in our market by developing efficient and distinctive document management products and solutions for business customers.”
On display at the 35th annual Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) Conference at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle from May 5-8, Toshiba’s e-BRIDGE Re-Search software removes the need for a company to individually key search tags or parameters on files as they are scanned or stored on the network—saving time, resources and the company’s bottom line. The software solution uses search engine technology integrated into a file management system and unstructured database, delivering a unique and intuitive solution for finding data anywhere on a network while simultaneously identifying relationships between different sets of data.
Through using the e-BRIDGE Re-Search solution, businesses can manage all information recalled through a legal discovery process in-house, without the need to resort to highly specialized, services-based legal firms. The solution dramatically reduces the most costly and time-intensive part of the discovery process, and manages the information in-place without disrupting users’ workflows.
