Legal Hold

Legal Hold


ZyLAB’s Legal Hold is a complete management application to create, manage and track legal holds. After a hold notification is received, a new hold notification is created for (potential) custodians. Notifications are sent by email and the acceptance of the notifications is tracked in the management application. Hold reminders, awareness reminders and escalations can be sent and scheduled.
