Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 09, 2016
kCura, developers of e-discovery software Relativity, today announced that Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C. (WHD)—one of Wisconsin’s leading full-service law firms—has licensed Relativity.
Relativity is a fully featured e-discovery platform that allows users to create and automate custom workflows, and take advantage of fully integrated processing and analytics, including email threading—so case teams can ingest data and begin analyzing it right away. The latest release, Relativity 9.3, introduces a reimagined interface with enhanced visualization capabilities to make data analysis even easier.
“We’re committed to providing exceptional service and innovative, practical solutions to meet the diverse needs of our clients,” said Paul Eberle, chief executive of WHD. “Relativity brings a heightened level of technology to the table, while ensuring greater efficiency in terms of analyzing and organizing enormous amounts of data—and it allows us to house that data within our firm, which is important to many of our clients.”
“We have concluded that Relativity is the right tool for us because of its capacity to handle our current needs and the adaptability to meet our growing needs,” said Tom Heneghan, WHD shareholder and co-leader of the Intellectual Property Litigation Team. “The demands of complex litigation and document management require that flexibility.”
While courts are demonstrating further acceptance of analytics technology—like in the U.K.’s recent Pyrrho decision—litigators are getting savvier and case teams are getting more adept at using analytics to gather insight and drive better results. Because of that, the use of Relativity Analytics has increased exponentially. In January 2016 alone more than 50 terabytes of data were indexed in Analytics, nearly double the amount of data in Analytics one year prior.
“Analytics is one of the fastest-growing areas of our business. We believe this trend will continue, and we’re seeing more and more customers having success with the feature set—saving millions of dollars and enabling attorneys to better do their job of investigating and getting to the heart of a case,” said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. “We’re excited that Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C. has chosen Relativity, and look forward to working closely with them to make the most of the software.”
