Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 10, 2007
Document Technologies, Inc. (http://www.dtiglobal.com), a comprehensive document and technology solutions provider for legal professionals and select corporate clients, today announced the launch of a near-duplicate detection service. The service is based on patent-pending technology from Equivio. The grouping of near-duplicate documents significantly reduces costs and errors in litigation review.
"Document Technologies is determined to bring its customers technologies that can reduce their litigation costs," said Kevin Jacobs, Vice President of Technology Services for Document Technologies. "Equivio is an outstanding example. Using Equivio's near-deduping in a recent case, we were able to reduce the document review effort by a mammoth 65%. This level of saving is unique in the litigation industry. Initial customers have been truly delighted."
Document Technologies is offering the near-duplicate grouping capability as part of its E-Discovery service. Equivio has been integrated within LitShare ®, DTI's web-based solution for review, production and repositories. An innovative quality assurance feature offered by DTI enables users to check that near-duplicate documents have been coded, for example, as privileged or responsive, in a consistent manner.
Commenting on the integration, Mr, Jacobs added, "We were able to roll out the Equivio-based service in a matter of days. From the user's point of view, too, it could not be simpler. The user continues working with their favorite review system in the normal manner, with the additional capability of sorting, grouping, assigning and retrieving documents by near-duplicate groupings."
"We are thrilled to be working with an industry leader like DTI," said Amir Milo, CEO of Equivio. "It was encouraging to see the ease and speed with which DTI was able to implement our technology. We have no doubt that DTI's customers will reap significant benefits, both in cost savings and enhanced consistency in the treatment of documents."
