OrcaTec today announced the official launch of its OrcaTec Document Decisioning Suite™, which reduces the time, cost and effort of analyzing, categorizing and retrieving documents from large collections by 93%, according to its creators.

The Suite, which uses a visual interface to allow analysis and investigation of terabytes, and even petabytes, of documents, was developed by the “father of concept search,” OrcaTec’s CTO and Chief Scientist, Dr. Herbert L. Roitblat.

“The OrcaTec Document Decisioning Suite is different than anything in the market today in a variety of ways,” said Roitblat. “It can, for instance, look at all the emails produced by a Fortune 500 company in a year, and find all the documents relevant to a single concept – without the reviewer even knowing in advance what that concept is. It’s all about math, statistics and sampling, without the user needing to understand any of those things.”

The OrcaTec Document Decisioning Suite currently consists of three tools, which all work together:

  • OrcaCategorize, which uses advanced predictive coding – machine learning, and a small amount of expert time to aid that learning – to cull responsive documents from huge collections in a timely and cost-effective manner.
  • OrcaSearch, which provides visual representations of concepts and communication patterns, as well as word suggestions, misspelling suggestions, email threading, near-duplicate detection, and interesting phrases that the searcher may not have considered in order to find relevant documents.
  • OrcaCluster, which provides visual clustering of documents by related topic, enabling the searcher to identify and tag responsive and non-responsive groups of documents quickly and easily.

The Suite is browser-based and is deployed in a private, secure, hosted environment. OrcaTec foresees it being especially useful in eDiscovery, risk management, internal investigations, governance and compliance.

“OrcaTec can be a massive cost-saver,” declared Roitblat. “In eDiscovery, for example, corporations can replace a warehouse full of attorneys doing first pass review with just one reviewing lawyer. In risk management, the investigative, predictive technology can flag potential problems as they occur.”

The software can simultaneously process millions of documents, removing irrelevant information quickly and easily until only the relevant remains.

“Any time there are large numbers of documents being reviewed, the Document Decisioning Suite will shatter timeframes by creating a demonstrably faster review cycle with extraordinary accuracy,” Roitblat said.

Atlanta-based OrcaTec delivers products and services for visually, defensibly and automatically revealing information that is precise, insightful and expert-driven from large collections of documents. Beyond key word searching, the topic-based OrcaTec Document Decisioning Suite™ is especially useful in eDiscovery, GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance), or anywhere documents have to be identified, categorized or understood. Included in the Suite are OrcaCategorize, OrcaSearch and OrcaCluster. Visualize a new concept in document decisioning at http://www.orcatec.com or by calling 888-355-2200.
