Kensington, MD (Vocus/PRWEB) January 17, 2011
Equivio, a provider of software for managing data redundancy, announced today that it has tightened the level of integration of its technology with kCura's Relativity review platform. The enhancement encompasses the full range of the Equivio product suite, including products for assessing document relevance, grouping near-duplicates and capturing email threads. The Equivio software is available as a plug-in for users of Relativity.
Since partnering with kCura in 2008, Equivio has progressively enhanced its Relativity plug-in to simplify and streamline the import and export of data between Equivio and Relativity. The latest enhancement includes:
- Simplified connection between databases – Easy-to-define connection between databases based on pull-down menus that reduce the chance of errors
- Seamless data retrieval from Relativity – Flexible, user-friendly selection of data fields (e.g., emails, pointers to email attachments, etc.) to be imported from Relativity for processing by Equivio
- Enhanced export to Relativity database – Software-enhanced definition of destination data fields in Relativity to expedite the export process
These new and automated processes reduce the need for manual keying of data, helping to prevent errors and significantly reducing the time it takes to prepare a document collection for review.
The integration of Equivio technology expedites the management and review of large document repositories. The assessment of document relevance enables reviewers to focus on key documents, zooming in on critical evidence and prioritizing litigation review. The grouping of near-duplicates and email threads allows similar documents to be handled and treated together, enabling Relativity users to slash the time and cost of document review.
“We believe that customers want the freedom to choose the best components for their e-Discovery stack,” stated Andrew Sieja, CEO of kCura. "Equivio has done a great job of integrating their best-in-class technology with our platform, allowing our collective customers to seamlessly leverage both software packages as an all-in-one solution.”
Fios, Inc. was one of the first Relativity Premium Hosting Partners to embed Equivio’s plug-in for Relativity. "Our clients consistently ask for help reducing the volume of documents to review, in order to drive down their total cost," said Jonathan Leitner, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Fios, Inc. "Relativity powered by FiosTM is their preferred review tool, based on its powerful analytics, ease of use, and proprietary HTML viewer; all combined with our scalable data processing capabilities. The integration of Equivio's near-duplicate and email thread identification enables us to increase their review velocity, in direct response to our clients' most pressing needs."
"Ease-of-use is a critical factor in ensuring that law firms and corporations can leverage the advanced technology they need to reduce litigation costs,” said Amir Milo, CEO of Equivio. "Through the seamless integration of Equivio and Relativity, we can offer end users an advanced, out-of-the-box e-discovery solution that minimizes IT effort in set-up, operation and support."
