E-discovery in a box
FTI Consulting has unveiled Ringtail QuickCull, a new pre-configured hardware and software package for e-discovery. Citing rapid deployment and out-of-the-box functionality, FTI Technology says QuickCull enables corporations to cull and analyze data on-premise prior to review by outside counsel, providing earlier insight into data and dramatic e-discovery cost reduction.
Upon installation, users can immediately begin indexing data and quickly identify duplicate files, which are automatically tagged for efficiency, says the company. Hidden files and columns, tracked changes and other modifications are also available to view. Reviewers can search for documents using a variety of search methods, including keywords and complex Boolean queries that can also be restricted to specific metadata fields. QuickCull then presents documents for preview, allowing reviewers to mark and tag individual documents in preview mode. Those markings are saved for export into processing, review and analysis tools via the EDRM XML standard, an industry standard for which FTI took a leadership position to develop. QuickCull is also Unicode-compliant to support international requirements.
