LexisNexis and Rosen Announce Technology Collaboration
LexisNexis Legal & Professional announced that it signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Rosen Technology Resources, Inc., to integrate Rosen’s Polaris and ALCoder software tools into the LexisNexis suite of electronic discovery software products. The applications are designed to provide very advanced capabilities to litigation teams during the early case assessment, processing, and review stages of electronic discovery.
Solutions in the LexisNexis E-Discovery Software Suite—LexisNexis Early Data Analyzer, LAW PreDiscovery, and Concordance Evolution—will soon feature Rosen’s Polaris and ALCoder software tools, which will significantly streamline the e-discovery process.
Enhancements to the LexisNexis E-Discovery Suite will include the following:
- “Near-duplicate” technology—recognizes and eliminates repeated or similar documents, significantly reducing the number of files to be reviewed
- “Email threading” functionality—groups original emails and responses in one thread, preventing users from having to review each email separately
- “Autocoding—codes scanned documents automatically, eliminating the timely process of manual coding
The enhanced versions of Early Data Analyzer and LAW PreDiscovery are expected to be available in April 2013 and Concordance Evolution later in 2013.
