The power of CentricSearch lies in the empowerment of counsel and clients to direct the data narrowing process because they possess the knowledge of the case and are in the best position to create a defensible strategy to identify the relevant records and, thereby, control the costs of electronic discovery.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 19, 2008
Servient Inc. announced today that CentricSearch, its powerful data narrowing, e-discovery application, is now available for release. CentricSearch significantly reduces processing costs by giving the corporate client and legal team immediate access, visibility and control of data preserved from all sources. A key component of the application is its ability to reduce the cost of processing and review by filtering out non-responsive records at an early stage of the workflow, thereby reducing the amount of data that must be processed and reviewed.
"Companies and counsel continue to seek solutions to contain the cost of electronic discovery as the volume of data that must be preserved and managed in litigation and regulatory matters continues to increase at a substantial rate," commented Servient's Founder & CEO, Ian Wilson. "By providing visibility and control over all of the email and files subject to a litigation hold, CentricSearch™ substantially reduces processing and review costs by filtering out more non-responsive documents at an early stage of the workflow," Wilson noted.
CentricSearch is fully web-based and combines an easy to use browser-based application with the enterprise-class performance required to efficiently manage the volume of data involved in today's electronic discovery projects.
CentricSearch allows all preserved data sets to be searched by various criteria. It returns statistical analysis that allows for the creation of an optimum search strategy to identify the responsive records and thereby reduce the volume of non-responsive records submitted for processing and review. CentricSearch integrates with Servient's advanced legal review application, Discovery Compass™. CentricSearch enables the user to immediately assign documents for review, perform repeated data narrowing and workflow analysis.
In addition to powerful search technology and data narrowing workflow features, CenticSearch provides the user access to preview any document allowing the legal team to gain a better understanding of the documents set at an early point in the matter.
"Narrowing the data set before processing and review is the most important method of controlling electronic discovery costs, but often the least amount of focus is placed on early data narrowing," Wilson continued. "The power of CentricSearch lies in the empowerment of counsel and clients to direct the data narrowing process because they possess the knowledge of the case and are in the best position to create a defensible strategy to identify the relevant records and, thereby, control the costs of electronic discovery."
Wilson concluded, "In the end, electronic discovery is a process and requires application of appropriate technology and procedures at each step of the process to control the ultimate cost of electronic discovery. CentricSearch provides talented, experienced and tech-savvy counsel with a tool that allows them to respond to their client's demands to control the costs of electronic discovery by reducing the amount of data to process and review at an early stage of the engagement."
