Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 24, 2009
Shepherd Data Services (SDS), a Minnesota-based provider of technology-driven litigation support services, today announced the adoption of Equivio's technology for near-duplicates and email threads. The Equivio technology will be used to streamline Shepherd's electronic discovery services.
"Our corporate and legal customers depend on us for technology solutions that will expedite their litigation processes, reduce costs and - most importantly - give them the advantage they need to achieve winning results," stated Christine Chalstrom, CEO and President of Shepherd Data Services. "By integrating Equivio's best-of-breed technology as a standard part of our electronic discovery services, we are able to dramatically improve the efficiency and accuracy of the document review process, allowing legal teams to quickly find the data they need."
The grouping of near-duplicates and email threads allows attorneys to skip redundant data, while focusing exclusively on the unique information in each document. By enhancing the findability of data, Equivio reduces the risk of missing key information. The Equivio groupings also ensure similar documents are treated consistently, while enhancing review productivity and helping litigators meet tight deadlines.
"From day one, we have witnessed Shepherd's profound commitment to leveraging innovative technology to help its customers address the complexities of electronic discovery," said Amir Milo, CEO of Equivio. "We are delighted that Shepherd chose Equivio as its technology partner for near-duplicates and email threads."
