Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 13, 2011
Precision Legal Services (PLS), a leading provider of end-to-end e-discovery solutions, today announced its adoption of Equivio’s technology for grouping of near-duplicates and email threads.
The Equivio solution eliminates data redundancy, helping PLS to address the increasing demand for tools that streamline and enhance the electronic discovery process. PLS intends to use Equivio technology as a standard component of its e discovery services, which include collection, consultation, data processing, review and hosting.
"As document volumes continue to grow, the ability to efficiently manage the e-discovery process has become a top priority for our clients," said Marc Hirschfeld, President at PLS. "By using Equivio's best-of-breed technology for near-duplicates and email threads, we are now able to significantly reduce the number of documents that need to be reviewed by legal experts, which translates into major cost savings for our clients."
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 ease of data identification, Equivio reduces the risk of missing key information. The Equivio groupings also ensure similar documents are treated consistently, increase review productivity and help litigators meet tight deadlines.
"Given the exploding volumes of electronically stored information, the need for solutions that expedite discovery processes and reduce overall litigation costs is greater than ever," said Amir Milo, CEO of Equivio. "Equivio's technology for near-duplicates and email threads further strengthens PLS' suite of litigation services, enabling it to mitigate the risks and curb the costs of e-discovery for its clients."
