Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 17, 2009
Kiersted / Systems, a seasoned leader in electronic discovery and legal technology consulting, announced today that it has been successfully using Equivio software to offer its customers a value-added service for the grouping of near-duplicate documents and email threads. Equivio's proven technology significantly reduces the cost, time and effort that Kiersted / Systems' clients need to invest in litigation review.
"Document review is the largest cost item within the e-discovery process," said Chris Dodd, Manager, E-Discovery and Operations, Kiersted / Systems. "Redundant data, whether it be manifest in near-duplicates or email threads, can represent one of every two documents in a review process. This is a huge hidden cost. In partnering with Equivio, we can offer our clients a solution that effectively attacks this very significant cost factor."
Kiersted / Systems has integrated the Equivio technology into its KEPS software suite for electronic discovery. The Equivio near-duplicate and email thread groupings weed out extraneous materials, saving review time and helping legal counsel to hone-in on the critical data they need to win cases. In terms of review quality, Equivio also ensures the consistent treatment of similar documents.
"Kiersted's experience in the electronic discovery market, together with their in-depth knowledge of information systems and blue-chip customer base, puts them in a prime position to understand current market needs," said Amir Milo, CEO of Equivio. "Kiersted has identified the need for technologies that reduce the cost and complexity of the document review process for its clients. We are delighted that the deployment of Equivio technology has enabled Kiersted to provide its clients with an added value service that helps them litigate more effectively and efficiently."
