InterLegis, a provider of litigation electronic discovery technology and services, has announced a new standalone early case assessment (ECA) module that is offered for free to law firms and corporations. The ECA technology provides legal teams the ability to quickly understand and analyze the contents of collected discovery data prior to full data processing. Once e-discovery data is loaded into the software, users can generate reports on a wealth of information, including: metadata, authors, recipients, file types, dates, domains, and more. This allows users to not only understand the content of collections with no associated costs, but will also provide the ability to cull the data without having to process it.

“Oftentimes, the first step in e-discovery is to understand what data has been collected,” according to Kevin Carr, President of InterLegis. “However, the challenge has always been finding a way to perform this analysis without any upfront investment. What if the collection wasn’t accurate?  What if most of the data is irrelevant or mostly consists of system files? Why pay to process data that should never see the light of day? With our free ECA module, legal teams can first get a full understanding of what they are dealing with before developing discovery review strategy and accurate budgets.“

Legal teams that have licensed full versions of Discovery360 Enterprise can immediately migrate reduced collections into the platform’s Extractor and DataMapper modules (for full data processing and further culling, respectively) based on choices made in the ECA module.  All fully processed and culled data can be migrated to Discovery360’s Reviewer module, or exported to common load file formats compatible with other review platforms, including: Concordance, Summation, and Relativity.
