Forensic Consulting Services

Sureties and law firms who prefer a professional IT Firm with in-house expert forensic services hire VERTEX to support their next project.

Data Collection

VERTEX engineers and IT professionals work on site at a Principal’s office to collect appropriate project-related documents, both hard copy and electronic sources, requested by the client. VERTEX’s e-document collection services comply with surety’s “paperless” office policies, reduces the cost of unnecessary copying of hard copy documents, and reduces storage costs since there is no physical storage required.

Document Management

Surety providers frequently retain VERTEX’s IT experts to copy and digitally retain all files from bond principals when surety obligations are triggered because of payment and /or performance issues. VERTEX typically collects accounting information, contract documents, emails, letters, etc. and preserves the information on our cloud server, which can retain any amount of information for as long as necessary. This service allows sureties to rest easy knowing that relevant project information will not go missing overnight.
