"Electronic Evidence Retrieval, L.L.C. (EER), a leading computer forensics and e-discovery firm headquartered on the U.S. Gulf Coast, announced today that it will use Equivio's technology for near-duplicates and e-mail threads to reduce the time and effort required to review evidence retrieved from electronic and OCR files.
"Using Equivio's technology for near-duplicates and e-mail threads further expands the scope of service we provide our customers," said Dr. Johnette Hassell, Founder and CEO of EER. "By using Equivio, we are now able to offer our clients enhanced computer forensic and e-discovery solutions that significantly lower the cost of document review."
EER utilized Equivio in a recent case for the law firm of Chaffe McCall LLP. Commenting on the review efficiencies yielded by the near-duplicate technology, Robert S. Rooth, Attorney of Chaffe McCall noted, "Equivio saves far more than the 25% the company advertises."
Through the new partnership with Equivio, EER can perform detection and reporting of near-duplicate documents and e-mail threads, complementing its full-service computer forensics and e discovery solutions. The grouping of near-duplicates and e-mail threads allows attorneys to skip redundant data and focus on the unique information in each document. By reducing time wasted on reviewing duplicate data, Equivio shortens the path to finding key information."
