Sept. 21, 2011 - PRLog -- Minneapolis, MN - Shepherd Data Services (Shepherd), a Minneapolis-based leader in full-service litigation support including e-discovery and review technology, announces it has opened a Relativity data hosting center for law firms, corporations and government entities. Relativity is a document review, analysis and production platform. Shepherd is one of the few Twin Cities companies that have a Relativity data hosting center supported by certified sales professionals, certified administrators and a team of experienced project managers. Shepherd boasts unlimited capacity and support for its clients.

Christine Chalstrom, president and CEO of Shepherd says, “Shepherd is always on the cutting edge of legal technology products and services. We partner with Relativity to provide a complete suite of document and data hosting solutions ranging from early case assessment through trial. Our goal is to continue adding technology and services, like Relativity hosting and support, in order to improve the efficiency of legal practices.”

Shepherd will support its legal clients with certified Relativity administrators and certified sales professionals. The company will remain as an authorized reseller and this gives it the flexibility to offer Relativity in-house or via a hosted solution.

Chalstrom continues, “Our data hosting center is strategically located in a secure facility in downtown Minneapolis. The facility offers uninterrupted power supply including battery, generator and even oil supply. With 21 years of litigation experience, I understand the importance of having access to documents anytime, anywhere, and we built our hosting center with this in mind.”

“We’ve enjoyed working with Shepherd as a Consulting Partner for the past year and are excited about their decision to offer Relativity through their own data hosting center,” said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. “Shepherd has a knowledgeable team exhibiting both administrative and sales expertise.”

Since 2002, Shepherd has grown from a one-person operation to a fully-staffed professional organization of legal, technology, IT, software, project management, and customer service experts.
