cicayda, a software and litigation support services company delivering 100% cloud-based eDiscovery applications, today announced major upgrades to fermata, the company’s legal hold management product first introduced in late January at the LegalTech New York trade show. New workflow enhancements such as legal hold management templates, intuitive reporting, and automated reminders and alerts are available to all existing and future fermata clients.
The upgrades to cicayda include more than 30 customer-driven updates related to fermata templates, reporting, legal hold, people and notice management as well as event logging.
fermata is secure, cloud-based legal hold management software that fits easily into existing legal hold compliance workflows, allowing in-house counsel and legal IT departments to manage the entire legal hold communications process. Since its introduction in January, fermata has been embraced by law firms and corporate counsel alike based on the ease of deployment and competitive pricing model. Especially law firms have welcomed the affordable pricing opting to expand service offerings accordingly without much additional costs to clients.
One Am Law 200 litigation support professional called cicayda “the most exciting thing in eDiscovery today”. Another cicayda corporate client with many separate legal holds said that “using fermata allowed us to free up one and a half paralegals’ time for more high level work, allowing us to drop the old spreadsheet method altogether.”
In terms of adoption, a large international law firm utilizes fermata on behalf of their corporate clients; several large national and international corporations are currently ‘test driving’ fermata, and an increasing number of legal technology consultants are promoting fermata as their preferred hold management application. With fermata, legal hold administrators can do much more than just create and track legal hold notifications, they can proactively manage their hold workflow. New features and benefits include:

“cicayda’s mission is to support intelligent lawyering with innovations in e-discovery software focused on contemporary web design, user experience, and scalability," stated Roe Frazer, cicayda’s CEO, veteran trial lawyer and former CaseLogistix CEO. "This is the same philosophy we applied with fermata and the recent enhancements all of which were made based on client feedback and requests. Companies can now turn on the private cloud-based fermata instantly and affordably, giving them complete confidence in this age of complex e-discovery, where costs are increasing and sanctions for non-compliance are severe." According to Jason Cox, cicayda’s CTO, “all of the recent updates to fermata were driven by our customers, in line with our “lean” approach to software development.”
