Kroll Ontrack enhances award-winning document review tool, supplying legal teams with more control and a simplified review process

Ontrack Inview 6.0 now provides document review teams with near duplicate identification e-mail threading, Eastern European language support and machine translation capabilities

London – Aug. 24, 2009 – Kroll Ontrack®, the industry’s largest provider of paper and electronic disclosure, computer forensics, ESI consulting, and courtroom and presentation services, today announced the release of Ontrack ® Inview™ 6.0, an enhanced version of its industry leading online document repository. Building on its already robust suite of features, Ontrack Inview 6.0 now has Near Duplicate Identification, E-mail Threading, Eastern European Language Support and Machine Translation capabilities, giving legal teams the ability to more effectively and efficiently manage e-disclosure review and control review costs.

“We understand that control and cost containment are the priority now more than ever before,” said Nancy Robertson, vice president of product line management for Kroll Ontrack. “These new enhancements coupled with Ontrack Inview’s existing features address just that, providing legal teams with increased efficiencies and significant cost savings as they review potentially responsive documents for privilege and case issues.”

Legal teams looking for seamless e-disclosure support, global review capabilities and the ability to minimise review costs will benefit from the following features:

  • Near Duplicate Identification – Allows users to quickly identify and easily conduct side-by-side comparisons of near-duplicate documents that differ only by a few words or paragraphs. By identifying a “core” document within duplicates, based on intelligent content analysis, users can synchronise review and issue tags, providing efficient and consistent results while reducing disclosure costs.
  • E-Mail Threading – Identifies and presents a visual representation of all related e-mails, sent and received, in a conversation thread within a document set. Because e-mail chains are logically organised, based on content versus subject, consistency and efficiency in document review are maximised, resulting in time and cost savings.
  • Eastern European Language Support – Provides users with expanded language search and support capabilities, enabling faster identification, processing, search, review and production of multilingual documents.
  • Machine Translation – Enables document review teams to select, submit and obtain English translations of European and East Asian language phrases or documents to quickly determine if more specific human review is needed. This capability can significantly expedite the review process by eliminating the review of unnecessary documents, saving time and expensive translation costs.

Ontrack Inview 6.0 is available throughout the world.
