Kroll Ontrack® announces latest enhancements to ElectronicDataViewer™

Industry-leading online review tool now offers new and expanded searching, speed of review and document coding capabilities

Minneapolis – March 29, 2006 – Kroll Ontrack® today launched ElectronicDataViewer™ 4.2, the state-of-the-art online review tool, now with additional features geared toward improving searching efficiency, integrity and control for document review teams. Since its inception, ElectronicDataViewer has been recognized by the readers of Law Technology News and the AmLaw Tech survey as one of the industry’s best and most used online review tools for document reviewers.

“The latest version of ElectronicDataViewer gives our clients the option to perform very sophisticated searches within a newly expanded and easy-to-use search wizard,” said Kristin Nimsger, vice president of Legal Technologies at Kroll Ontrack. “These added features all come while increasing search speed and without sacrificing any of the existing best of breed features of ElectronicDataViewer. Our product research and development teams have listened closely to our customers, and with this release, we are again responding to their needs and the evolution of the electronic discovery market.”

The latest product upgrade includes many enhancements that will give legal and document review teams more overall control and the ability to streamline complex searching and coding procedures. Some of the key details include:

Advanced search capabilities: Using the existing concept or traditional term searching, reviewers can use proximity, wildcard and expander searching techniques to improve accuracy and speed. The new version also allows for more advanced searching, with the increased ability to construct different searches on multiple fields all in one query.

Data dictionary feature: When conducting a search, reviewers can now see the terms within their document set, as well as their frequency, in a comprehensive data dictionary enabling the ability to determine which key terms are more important and relevant to the review.

Expanded coding options: ElectronicDataViewer easily integrates the review of paper and electronic documents in one secure online tool. The newest version now provides reviewers with more than 150 customizable coding fields which are in addition to electronic document metadata fields.

“As electronic discovery and online document review becomes increasingly complex and comprehensive, we are committed to bringing to market additional capabilities and improvements to make the review process easier, faster, more accurate and less costly. We are committed to maintaining our position as an innovator and leader in our field,” said Nimsger.
