Joseph Mosley and Robin Athlyn Thompson confirmed as Certified eDiscovery Specialists

NEW YORK, Dec 17, 2014 Business Intelligence Associates (BIA) a leader in eDiscovery softwarew and services, announced today that two members of its staff have passed the rigorous ACEDS exam and have been credentialed as a Certified eDiscovery Specialist (CEDS).

Joseph Mosely, a Project Manager in the Professionals Services Group and Robin Athlyn Thompson, VP of Marketing both join the growing group of Certified eDiscovery Specialists at BIA that includes Adam Feinberg, CCFS, CEDS; Barry Schwartz, Esq., CEDS; Lisa Prowse, Esq., CEDS; Mark MacDonald, CEDS; Daniel Rivera, CEDS; and Daniel Hardy, CEDS.

In November of 2012, BIA announced the certification of its entire Professional Services Management Team as well the initiative to certify the company's sales professionals so that the entire project lifecycle is managed by staff members who have proven knowledge in multiple facets of eDiscovery.

"In today's increasingly competitive market of eDiscovery vendors, it's not enough to solely compete on price or support," said BIA Senior Vice President of Professional Services Adam Feinberg. "Today we are raising the bar and can assure any client that the professionals working on their project have passed an arduous exam demonstrating core knowledge in eDiscovery and have been designated by ACEDS as a Certified eDiscovery Professional. As such, our team works with a keen eye and can deliver a higher level of service than can be found with many of our competitors."

BIA understands the importance of an independent, vendor neutral organization such as ACEDS. The company also believes that, in addition to being a large factor of competitive differentiation, a growing number of law firms and corporations will choose to work with certified professionals who have earned the important CEDS credential.
