NEW YORK, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ricoh Americas Corporation today unveiled a new early data analysis service for corporate legal departments combining highly intuitive data culling, a simple user interface, an innovative cost calculator and an affordable, behind-the-firewall method of controlling costs.
Customers deploy the Ricoh Electronic Discovery Insight (REDI) solution within their environment before they ever need it. At the onset of litigation, investigation or regulatory action, they can perform natural language queries and granular culling through a browser-based, intuitive interface. Queries trigger powerful analysis and identification of potentially relevant data, providing valuable insight to reduce data before it is processed and expensive review takes place.
Ricoh announced the new service today at LegalTech® New York 2014, the premier conference and trade show for technology in the legal community, where it is exhibiting in Booth # 224/226.
REDI's interactive interface allows customers to search and retrieve information by date, keywords, key phrases, file type, custodians and other parameters, refining results with Boolean connectors, in addition to wildcard and proximity searching, without requiring IT support for coding/scripting of complex search algorithms. Users can quickly and easily access very large data sets and identify likely relevant information, enabling them to make appropriate decisions which may have a positive impact on the downstream costs of document review. REDI also provides detailed reports showing analysis results, data volumes involved and projected review costs, among other things – all of which assist the customer in improving litigation strategy and building a defense against overly burdensome discovery requests.
Powerful, yet cost-effective
The REDI service gives customers all the power of permanently installed eDiscovery analysis tools without the capital investment, delays and proprietary lock-ins. It offers seamless integration with other eDiscovery solutions, e.g., hosted review platforms, and eliminates the need for programming knowledge. Employing technology used in some of the most demanding ESI settings, REDI rivals the affordability of tools with a fraction of the power. And unlike software-as-a-service (SaaS) processing tools, REDI helps keep customer data safe and secure behind the company firewall.
"As a full-service provider of eDiscovery services, we listened to our customers and developed a cost-effective solution that pinpoints their relevant information, mitigates their risk, manages their costs and protects their data," said Bob Brock, Vice President, Legal and Managed Services, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "REDI is a unique combination of simplicity and power, and our customers are eager to look to a partner like Ricoh to provide simple, yet innovative ways to make information work for eDiscovery clients."
