Washington, DC (Vocus) October 27, 2010
eTERA Consulting, a provider of end-to-end data management solutions to Fortune 500 companies and AMLAW 100 law firms, today announced the adoption of Equivio’s technology for grouping of near-duplicates and email threads. eTERA has incorporated Equivio technology as a standard component of its electronic data discovery (EDD) services. Equivio is one of several best-of-breed technologies used by eTERA to support the entire E-Discovery process - from data recovery and forensic services, through collection and processing, to review and production.
“We are focused on helping our customers implement cost-effective technologies to support their electronic discovery strategies," said eTERA’s president Scott Holec. "Equivio's technology for near-duplicates and email threads helps our customers accelerate and optimize document review processes. The great thing about the Equivio grouping technology is that it drives cost savings in review, while simultaneously enhancing review quality and reducing errors."
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.
"We are delighted that eTERA’s rapidly growing customer base will benefit from the proven cost savings driven by Equivio," said Amir Milo, CEO of Equivio. "In a series of benchmarks conducted by our customers, the Equivio near-duplicate groupings have consistently driven review cost savings of slightly over 30%. On the email side, the benchmarks have shown average savings of just on 50%."
