We are excited to introduce earlyCASE
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 11, 2008
Atlanta-based earlyCASE, an innovator in advanced early case assessment for Electronically Stored Information (ESI) and eDiscovery, today announced the launch of its free software available for download from http://www.earlycase.com. earlyCASE is a web-based application which runs on your local PC and analyzes the ESI that your computer can access without the data ever leaving your computer or network.
earlyCASE allows you to see and understand all of your data before it is processed for discovery. It supports multiple languages, extracts metadata, generates hash values, detects duplicates and creates a local inventory database of documents and emails. earlyCASE allows users to make informed discovery decisions and easily cut down the size of data sets through filter and culling rules before going into the discovery process and review.
Companies spend millions of dollars annually on the review and analysis eDiscovery phases. By assessing data early and reducing the sets of data going to review, the cost of processing and the time to review can be drastically reduced in the overall eDiscovery lifecycle.
"We are excited to introduce earlyCASE," said Tom Strack, CEO of earlyCASE. "earlyCASE brings a real understanding to the eDiscovery process at the earliest moment, the lowest cost, and at an unprecedented speed, giving clients a more realistic view into what data they have at stake. With data storage continuing to increase in size, it is common to have terabytes of information to process and review. earlyCASE can analyze that data and decrease the data sets that need to be reviewed, reducing not only eDiscovery budgets, but managing their legal risk. earlyCASE can process the data without it ever leaving where it is stored, using your own people and equipment. "
earlyCASE is offered in two versions, a Basic (FREE) version and a Professional version for a small flat rate charge, regardless of the amount of data you analyze. The Basic version offers 15 high quality eDiscovery reports, one which estimates your processing and review budget while providing an immediate understanding of your data. Through the Professional version, a 26(f) report for meet and confer is available to help clients reduce legal risk exposure by offering a necessary view of the legal case information--custodians, context, third parties, and more. earlyCASE provides you the tools and results to best understand, define and memorialize the ESI going into the meet and confer. Duplicate document detection and container processing (zip, rar, arc) are the primary reasons most people use the Professional version of earlyCASE.
