iCONECT’s XERA Review Platform

“XERA’s new Advanced Analytics provides legal professionals with a powerful tool to help them conduct review with the power of easy to use analysis tools,” states Iram Arras, iCONECT’s Director of Product Management. “Working alongside industry-leading experts from Content Analyst, we embedded our Advanced Analytics engine directly within our XERA Review Platform in a very intuitive way to optimize efficiency and accuracy. XERA’s Advanced Analytics features are incredibly flexible, empowering users to conduct linear or investigative reviews regardless of approach.”

Built in HTML5, XERA is an intuitive, multi-browser, hosted eDiscovery review platform built to optimize the review, analysis and production of electronically stored information (ESI). Operating on a SQL® or Oracle® database, XERA was built for big data to empower legal teams to maximize productivity through its easy to navigate interface, enhanced social collaboration and remote accessibility features. XERA provides legal professionals with unprecedented control over the entire eDiscovery review process.

XERA’s new Advanced Analytics features new patent-pending Xmplar™ “Custom Find Similar” functionality. Xmplar™ enables users to collaboratively create a customized “perfect document” to act as a model or “exemplar,” providing users with more control over conceptual search resulting in fewer false positives and more specific search results. Coupled with Advanced Analytics’ intelligent batching, threading and near duplicates features, Xmplar™ continues to set the precedent for innovation in the legal review industry.
