Another step forward for e-discovery
kCura has launched Relativity 8.2, a complete e-discovery solution that incorporates more than 100 new features. Further, says kCura, the new version includes significant enhancements to Relativity's fundamental technology, as well as updates to its hold, collection, processing and production capabilities, thus enabling users to manage data within a single platform for the entire life of a matter.
kCura highlights the following capabilities:
- a legal hold solution that allows users to create defensible, repeatable processes for sending hold notices and tracking hold-related data in a single place;
- smarter, targeted collections with Relativity Collection that allow the quick and remote analysis and search of file names and file system metadata from within Relativity, to gain insight before initiating the collection;
- stratified sampling in computer-assisted review, which is said to ensure training sets include a conceptually diverse selection of documents, resulting in fewer training rounds and shorter review times;
- a new, intuitive security settings interface that makes it easy for users to set and understand permissions at a glance, as well as allows greater delegation of administrative rights;
- a new desktop console for processing that offers advanced users full control of Relativity's processing engine;
- a Web version of Relativity Binders that allows users to access searchable PDFs of their most important case documents anywhere, any time and on any PC, Mac or tablet; and
- updates to the platform—including more coverage for the Relativity Services API and a framework for creating custom mass operations—that make it easier for third-party developers, litigation support professionals and independent consultants to build applications and integrations on top of the software.
