TORONTO— NOV. 4, 2020 — Epiq, a global leader in electronic discovery and data review, announced today that they have established a long-term, collaborative relationship with international, enterprise risk consulting firm, Riskope. Epiq has built a customized business solution that streamlines Riskope’s review and identification of risks related to the resources and infrastructure industry.
Riskope needed a proven, reputable partner to help them streamline the hazard identification review phase of their proprietary quantitative risk assessment platform to help manage an exponentially growing project load. Riskope’s review solution also needed to be usable by engineers as opposed to legal teams. With this unique outcome in mind, Epiq developed a custom workflow environment using Relativity, which also allows for Riskope to make its own adjustments to meet the needs of each assessment.
“Working with Epiq has been a joy from the first preliminary conference all the way to the end of the job. We look forward to expanding this style of application to cover other “verticals” in various industries where we are active, worldwide,” said Dr. Franco Oboni, president of Riskope. “As all the work was developed during COVID lockdown and traveling restrictions, the entire project was developed remotely via CC/video conferences. The Epiq and Riskope teams worked seamlessly and efficiently. We are sure our clients will benefit from the joint effort.”
Epiq’s advanced technologies, deep expertise, and robust service offerings provide Riskope with an ideal partnership. Once Riskope described their pain points, Epiq tailored a solution to their business problem and was able to fit specific requirements to match Riskope’s proprietary platform.
“This collaboration with Riskope is a testament to how Epiq can engage with our clients to solve their business problems,” said Carla Swansburg, vice president and general manager of Epiq Canada. “The arrangement demonstrates that our technologies, workflows and services can support any industry or vertical. Kudos to Franco Oboni and his team for their innovative thinking, and for seeking even greater efficiencies and providing even more value for their clients. We look forward to continuing to build our relationship with Riskope!”
