Kroll Ontrack Integrates Relativity into Its Ediscovery Offering in Europe
MINNEAPOLIS, December 9, 2015 – Kroll Ontrack, the leading provider of ediscovery and data recovery products and services, today announced it is adding kCura's Relativity to its ediscovery offering in Europe. As a Relativity Best in Service partner, Kroll Ontrack is now giving law firms and companies flexibility in their choice of document review tools, based on the needs of their projects.
Kroll Ontrack has successfully offered Relativity in the US since 2014 and has integrated proprietary, award-winning technology enhancements – including cost-saving nearline technology – into its Relativity offering to give clients greater control of their data and costs. This enhanced offering of Relativity is now available in the UK and will be deployed in other European countries too.
Tim Phillips, Managing Director of Kroll Ontrack International Legal Technologies said: “Kroll Ontrack is making it easier for both law firms and companies to choose a leading review tool best suited to their needs, either ediscovery.com Review or Relativity, based on workflow requirements, data analytics, user preferences and other features. Regardless of their choice, clients are supported by Kroll Ontrack’s global network of consulting experts who help clients leverage the most advanced technology features to gain better control over their overall data volumes and ediscovery spend.”
John Grancarich, vice president of product management, Kroll Ontrack said: “Each and every ediscovery project is unique, with different parameters and deadlines, requiring different technology functionality. The addition of Relativity to our ediscovery offering means our team is equipped with a flexible toolkit and the expertise to recommend the best approach to solve every customer challenge.”
Kroll Ontrack received the 2015 Relativity Innovation Award for Best Service Provider Solution for its integration of proprietary “nearline” technology – originally built to reduce data volumes and costs in ediscovery.com Review – into its offering of Relativity. Nearline technology empowers users to easily identify and set aside (or nearline) non-critical data on demand, and retrieve nearline data in a similar, on-demand manner, without reprocessing and with work product intact. As nearline storage is 50 percent less costly than active storage, organizations can significantly reduce data volumes and costs associated with ediscovery, while providing more efficient access to critical documents.
Tim Phillips continues: “Organizations are seeking ways to leverage technology to reduce the costs associated with ediscovery and reduce time spent reviewing documents. Our nearline technology addresses both. Over the last 12 months, nearly 100 clients have taken advantage of cost-saving nearline technology in ediscovery.com Review.”
Kroll Ontrack’s integration of this proprietary technology into Relativity directly addresses the market demand for innovative, cost-cutting technologies – regardless of review tool choice.
In addition to proprietary nearline technology in Relativity, Kroll Ontrack offers:
Certified Relativity Expertise: Kroll Ontrack’s experienced global Relativity team includes Relativity Experts, a Relativity Master, Relativity Certified Administrators, Relativity Infrastructure Specialists and Relativity Analytics Specialists. Kroll Ontrack professionals leverage the most advanced Relativity features to skillfully guide matters and recommend strategies to promote the best possible outcome.
Early Case Assessment (ECA) workflow: By allowing only text and metadata to be loaded into the Relativity platform, costs can be significantly reduced. The power and flexibility of Relativity’s search and analytics functionality can be used during ECA to gain early data insight and prioritize the most important data for earlier review.
Assisted Redaction: Sensitive information can be protected and the redaction process can be streamlined through an automated approach to identify and redact Personally Identifiable Information (PII), privileged or other pertinent information based on user-defined criteria.
Grancarich concludes: “With unprecedented user-driven control, our offering of Relativity is a powerful tool to help organizations manage the mounting data and costs associated with data analysis and review. By combining nearline technology, a customized ECA workflow and assisted redaction with our full team of certified Relativity experts and consultants, Kroll Ontrack delivers an efficient, accurate and cost-effective review.”
