The biggest item of news in the eDiscovery world so far this year has been Microsoft’s acquisition of Equivio, the text analytics company which made its name with a set of tools designed to minimise the number of documents for review and to reduce the task of categorising them.
In its first press release since the acquisition, Equivio has launched a major product release with Equivio Zoom v4.0 and Zoom Tab for Relativity V3.0. Zoom is Equivio’s eDiscovery platform, combining predictive coding and analytics including thematic analysis, near-duping, email threading, batching and language detection.
The new release is aimed at simplifying the user experience and enhancing productivity with a conversion to HTML 5, simplified review, automatic calculation of relevance scores known as “score the rest”, estimation of training completion to allow better planning of the review process, and various auto tagging functions.
All of these features and enhancements are also available in Zoom Tab in Relativity v3.0.
There is a press release about this release here.
