Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 31, 2008
Catalyst Repository Systems announced today the integration of Equivio technology for near-duplicate files and email threads into Catalyst CR, an award-winning discovery review platform recognized as a Top Provider in the 2008 Socha-Gelbmann E-discovery Survey. The partnership with Equivio will save review teams valuable time by allowing them to dramatically reduce the size of document collections.
The grouping of near-duplicates and email threads allows reviewers to skip redundant data, while focusing exclusively on the unique information in each document. Applied to sample data, Equivio's technology has been shown to reduce a document collection by as much as 60 percent.
Catalyst, which has previously integrated Equivio's near-duplicate technology into CR, will now add Equivio's Compare and Email Threads features.
"Review is the key cost item in litigation. Our objective is to help our clients manage and reduce these costs," said John Tredennick, Catalyst's CEO and founder. "The integration of Catalyst CR with Equivio drives down costs, while also ensuring the consistency and accuracy of review."
The Equivio>Compare tool displays content differences between documents regardless of format, allowing reviewers to focus on the differences within the documents and thereby speed up the review. Equivio>EmailThreads captures and reconstructs email conversations to identify and pinpoint only emails that contain unique information.
Amir Milo, Chief Executive Officer of Equivio, said, "We are delighted that Catalyst's wide network of users and partners can now access Equivio's technology, helping them reduce both the cost and risk of litigation review."
"By suppressing redundant data, Equivio reduces the review effort. By exposing unique data, Equivio reduces the risk of missing the 'smoking gun' that may be buried in a document," Milo said. "Finally, by capturing near-duplicates and email threads, Equivio ensures that similar documents can be treated consistently."
