Recommind (news, site) has launched version 4.0 of its Axcelerate eDiscovery platform. The recent update features solutions capable of assessing document responsiveness and defensible random sampling, accelerating Axcelerate into what some are calling the “holy grail” of document review.

eDiscovery as a Non-Linear Process

Axcelerate 4.0 aims to provide users with the “the precision and intuition of human judgment” combined with time and cost saving efficiencies.

Although the holy grail is nothing to sneeze at, perhaps Axcelerate 4.0’s most significant feature is that it views eDiscovery as a non-linear process. While some products follow the EDRM model, seeing eDiscovery from either the left or the right, Recommind has embraced the disjointed process that eDiscovery often is.

By eliminating straight lines from the process, Axcelerate can start most anywhere in the process. With its Predictive Coding, a little bit of information can go a long way, automatically prioritizing, reviewing and coding all documents in a collection. Such collaboration can be costly for linear eDiscovery platforms, but now it not only cost less, it requires less time.

Advanced Search Technologies

Axcelerate 4.0 also added advanced features, like concept search and an Search Query Editor, which automatically previews the results of any potential query -- regardless of search methodology used -- to provide an accurate and defensible ECA and review.

Other advanced features of Axcelerate eDiscovery 4.0 include:

  • Search Analysis Reports: Users can document the entire search process increasing the defensibility of the overall eDiscovery process.
  • SmartTaggers and SmartFilters: Users can create and customize on a case-by-case basis so that enterprises can review data according to their own terminology and processes.
  • Enhanced UI: Users can identify, classify and code documents more quickly and efficiently, including document families and metadat.

Axcelerate 4.0 is certainly advancing the kinds of technology used to manage and perform eDiscovery and as a result it aims to take it to the next level.

It used to be that the quickest way to anything was a straight line, but with Recommind, it seems that removing the line all together may get you there faster.
