Relativity, a global legal and compliance technology company, announced at Legal Innovation and Tech Fest that it is strengthening its investment in the Australian market. Relativity is growing its presence in Australia given the high demand and engagement from the region.
The Relativity community in Australia has shown more engagement than ever over the past year, including a 93% increase in attendance at user groups and nearly 40% growth in overall certifications, which is twice the global average. Additionally, RelativityOne data in Australia has more than doubled in the last year, demonstrating an increased desire for an e-discovery SaaS product.
Building out the team in Australia is a key element in Relativity’s continued investment in the region to provide the best support possible for customers. Relativity has hired Georgia Foster, Managing Director, APAC, to lead the organisation’s efforts in the region. Foster has more than 17 years of experience leading lead sales, operations, product and marketing teams in APAC, the U.S. and Latin America. She previously held roles at LinkedIn and Uber, bringing their products and concepts to the local market.
“I’m thrilled to join the Relativity team at a time when there’s so much growth and excitement around the product in Australia and the APAC market more broadly,” said Foster. “As we continue to expand in the local market, it’s important to empower our Australian users to be successful. I look forward to working with our customers and team members to ensure we can deliver the best experience possible.”
Delivering a solution that makes meeting processing and production requirements in Australia simpler is a key priority. To achieve this, Relativity introduced a preview program enabling some Australian customers to provide real-time feedback allowing for iteration on the functionality prior to its release. The latest release for RelativityOne users in Australia offers:
“Our goal is for e-discovery teams to have a true end-to-end e-discovery platform in RelativityOne,” said Stuart Hall, Senior Manager, APAC Service Delivery at Relativity. “This is the first time that we collaborated so closely with Australian customers on a locally focused product upgrade and the approach certainly benefitted both Relativity and our customers.”
Relativity’s new Justice for Change program is now available in Australia, the first region outside of the U.S. This global program leverages the unique capabilities of RelativityOne and its ecosystem to positively impact racial justice progress in our communities. Justice for Change first launched at Relativity Fest in September where Relativity pledged 100 terabytes of RelativityOne to remove barriers to access technology for organising, collecting and analysing data in matters related to racial injustice.
Any customers or organisations working to promote racial justice are eligible to apply for the program. And for those in Australia who are not familiar with our software, Relativity will pair them with a service provider or law firm from its network that can assist.
“We are thrilled to include the Australian community in our efforts to make inclusion, diversity and belonging an integral part of our culture,” Foster added. “I look forward to seeing the difference we can make when our community comes together to create positive change.”
