ARLINGTON, Va. -- ONSITE3(TM), a leading global provider of electronic discovery solutions for law firms and corporations, today announced support of an Extensible Markup Language (XML) standard developed by the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) for the flexible transfer of electronically stored information (ESI) throughout all phases of the discovery process. The new standard will provide a uniform, industry accepted format for the import and export of data between different applications, systems, and organizations. As an active and founding participant on the EDRMs XML Project, ONSITE3 was integral in the development of the new standard.

"ONSITE3’s contributions to the EDRM’s XML standard demonstrate our leadership role in advancing the state of the art for management of electronic evidence,” said Robert C. Ballou, chief executive officer, ONSITE3. "The adoption of this industry standard in combination with our strategic investments in the development of innovative technologies will provide our clients with increasing flexibility in the selection of products and services that best fit their needs."

"ONSITE3 already utilizes XML in both our eDiscovery and document review platforms and, leveraging this expertise, we were able to work closely with the EDRM to develop the XML standard now being offered for industry-wide adoption," said Arestotle Thapa, ONSITE3’s chief development officer and liaison for the EDRM’s XML Project. "Compliance with the new standard will further complement our already extensive and customizable library of data delivery formats."
