Daegis (NASDAQ:DAEG), a leading provider of eDiscovery solutions today announced a significant new release of the Daegis eDiscovery Platform. The release delivers highly advanced functionality and a new user interface in a single, hosted solution that enables users to achieve efficiencies and cost savings throughout the eDiscovery process.

The new capabilities of the Daegis eDiscovery Platform include an advanced search interface that incorporates iterative search, validated sampling and other best practices so that clients can search, analyze, cull and review data within the same application. Attorneys can quickly and easily review the results of complex keyword queries through new on-demand search impact reports rather than having to manually process searches to target the most relevant document set for review. Changes to queries are also recorded and saved to aid in the audit and defensibility of the search should it ever come into question.

“Daegis understands that the goal for every matter in its eDiscovery phase is to process, search, classify and analyze, and review material that is relevant to the litigation or investigation, and do it efficiently and cost-effectively,” said Bill Shores, manager, litigation support services, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.

The platform features a new repository that enables custodian data to be processed and indexed one time, allowing the data to be reused across multiple matters. Attorney work product such as notes, redactions, privilege calls, and other designations is also retained in the repository. By retaining custodian data and the related attorney work product, corporate clients with high volumes of litigation will save significant amounts of time and money in the event this data is required for future matters.

Reporting has also been enhanced within the new Platform to enable clients to quickly assess the efficiency and quality of reviewer performance. Calculators are included to estimate the time and resources required to complete a review project and track, from the early stages of the project, whether or not additional resources need to be allocated to ensure a review project is completed on time.

“The Daegis eDiscovery Platform draws upon client input for a single, integrated system that seamlessly handles everything from processing through production,” said Judson Holt, senior vice president of client services, Daegis. “All of the capabilities in this release, from the work product repository to iterative search to real-time reporting tools, were designed with our clients in mind – to deliver the most expedient eDiscovery experience possible.”

Daegis’ eDiscovery Platform combines technology with on-demand professional services including document review, eDiscovery analytics, litigation consulting, and project management services that are quality-assured, expertly managed, and competitively priced. Because of the capabilities of the Daegis eDiscovery Platform, clients will benefit from significantly more responsive document review sets resulting in dramatic cost and time savings.
