It features high-precision classification capability in both English and Asian-languages. This function enables expediting of review process while reducing the cost of review, the most expensive and labor-intensive eDiscovery process
Job Controller: This new functionality in v5.5 makes it possible to schedule and automatically execute culling processes, reducing manual work by users, speeding up the culling process and reducing errors.

Automating the process of creating batches and distributing for 1st review in addition to quality checks enables smoother document transfers between processes and tracking progress. Internal tests have corroborated work efficiency improvement by 20% compared to previous versions without this function (with manual process).
Predictive Coding: Lit i View v5.5 also incorporates the predictive coding function of v5.0, which enables the automated identification of relevant text in Asian-languages, reducing the number of steps in the review process and thereby providing significant savings in time and cost of document review.
