Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) March 22, 2007
H&A Forensics, a Canadian provider of Total Forensic Solutions, including electronic discovery, computer forensics and forensic accounting services, announced today the launching of a new service for the detection of near-duplicate files and de-duplication of scanned images. The new service is based on patent-pending technology from Equivio.
"Equivio will help our clients turn around the spiraling costs of litigation," said Oleh Hrycko, President and CEO of H&A Forensics. "Our mission is to offer clients an integrated suite of discovery software that can streamline the review process and reduce litigation costs. Equivio is a key addition to H&A's proprietary web based document review platform, eExamine™."
Hrycko added, "In initial cases where we have applied Equivio, we are finding that 20-30% of the documents are near-duplicates. As a result, Equivio's software allows clients to drastically reduce the time involved in reviewing this part of the collection. In fact, the redundant review of near-duplicates is probably the largest single component that technology can eliminate from the discovery cycle."
"We are delighted that H&A Forensics has decided to implement our technology," said Amir Milo, CEO of Equivio. "H&A subjected the tool to very thorough testing. This demonstrates their commitment to their clients, and I am pleased to report that we came through with flying colors. We look forward to working with H&A, and helping their clients reduce litigation costs and risks via our technology."
