Choosing a document review platform – Lateral Data Viewpoint and iCONECT XERA

A recent two-part article on the Above The Law site is called How to choose the best document review platform, written by Jeff Benyon.

As it happens, the article relies on its for its examples and illustrations on the review platforms of two of my sponsors who are unrelated to each other and who compete with each other. Whilst I generally try and avoid this – it is not my business to offer comparative reviews and, besides, it gives me an issue in deciding how to display logos – the articles are helpful to those who feel they ought to understand what document review involves but do not like to ask. The articles are also illustrated by screenshots from the products concerned.

The first article draws on Viewpoint from Lateral Data (a Xerox company) for its examples.

The second article uses iCONECT-XERA as the source of its illustrations.

Between them, they relate the task to be performed to the functionality offered by each application. The illustrations include explanations about the sort of costs which lawyers might expect to incur in conducting these exercises.

Although the examples used are of US review exercises, the principles are equally applicable elsewhere.
