We’re pleased to announce that Data Collect Pro, our product for collecting electronically stored information (ESI), is now able to collect from Microsoft Office 365’s OneDrive for Business, a rapidly growing source of corporate d
ata subject to discovery requests in litigation.

“Office 365’s OneDrive for Business is becoming an increasingly important source of ESI for corporations,” said Sarah Thompson, Senior Product Manager at Zapproved. “In fact, as of June 2015, 70 percent of Fortune 500 companies had purchased Office 365 over a 12-month period. That’s phenomenal growth, and we’re proud that Zapproved has stepped up to meet the growing demand for collections from this important source of ESI.”

  • Collection can be performed behind the scenes without the need for Custodian credentials or intervention.
