Ipro Unveils New Review UI for Automated Digital Discovery

Tempe, Ariz., January 30, 2017 — Ipro Tech, LLC, a worldwide leader in eDiscovery solutions, announced today the debut of a state-of-the-art user interface for the Review component of its flagship Automated Digital Discovery (ADD) platform. The functionality of ADD’s Review module Eclipse is also available to be used as a stand-alone, web-based review tool.

“At Ipro, we draw upon decades of real-world industry experience merged with technological expertise,” said Ipro President & CEO Kim Taylor. “This enables us to deliver eDiscovery solutions that are truly relevant and add real value for litigation professionals. We’ve been in their shoes. We understand their challenges.”

Tailored for reviewers and attorneys who need to quickly carry out a basic review, the new interface brings together all of today’s most-used features in linear review. It presents those familiar features in a simplified control panel, streamlining the workflow with more user-friendly layouts without extensive training.

The new interface was created with HTML5 and cross-browser compatibility, allowing access to the application with hardware running either Microsoft Windows or Apple macOS. No plug-ins are required for installation. With web-based access, users are able to start reviewing in minutes. It also offers several more advanced features for the review of ESI, including the ability to play native video files.

The new UI is the foundation where all other review features will migrate.  Future updates are slated to include all of the robust functionality of Eclipse — which today empowers users with heavyweight features including TAR 3.0, transcript management, ECA, analytics, advanced searching, and more. For users who prefer the familiarity of the classic interface, it remains available within Eclipse and ADD’s Review module.

Ipro Announces Proprietary Analytics Engine

Tempe, Ariz., January, 26, 2017 — Ipro Tech, LLC, a worldwide leader in eDiscovery solutions, announced today the introduction of its new analytics engine. After an exhaustive search, Ipro purchased a source code license from Hot Neuron LLC, creator of the Clustify text-analytics tool. This purchase allows Ipro to independently develop and maintain the analytics engine, while working closely with Hot Neuron.

“Acquiring this code is pivotal for Ipro, because, without changing our business model, we now have granular control over the most crucial facets of our Automated Digital Discovery platform,” said Ipro President and CEO Kim Taylor. “Given our decades of industry experience, Ipro’s time-tested platform, and this new analytics technology, we’re able to deliver complex solutions that are simple to use.”

Ipro’s newly acquired Hot Neuron technology includes near de-duplication, clustering and concept searching. It leverages real-time learning to elevate Technology Assisted Review (TAR) to the next level. Both the new analytics technology as well as Ipro’s recently developed proprietary email threading technology will be fully integrated with Ipro’s ADD platform.

“We’re extremely proud that our software is being used by one of today’s leaders in eDiscovery technology,” said Bill Dimm, Hot Neuron founder and creator of Clustify, and author of the forthcoming book Predictive Coding: Theory & Practice. “We’re also excited to see what Ipro’s experience and expertise might add to the functionality of Clustify in future releases.”

Search & Filtering Simplified with ADD Review (Eclipse)

Tempe, Ariz., January 26, 2017 — Ipro Tech, LLC, a worldwide leader in eDiscovery solutions, announced today the introduction of a simple, yet powerful, searching and filtering feature for the Automated Digital Discovery (ADD) platform. This ability to visually search or perform early case assessment streamlines a typically complex and time-consuming process, as ADD users can now see the impact of search criteria to more easily evaluate results.

“Our latest update to Ipro’s ADD platform is in line with our enduring commitment to help case teams pinpoint the facts much faster,” said Ipro President & CEO Kim Taylor. “It enables ADD’s ECA & Review module Eclipse to be a true data portal for filtering and culling without having to utilize multiple systems or disparate applications.”

Historically, ECA and document review were two very different processes typically handled using multiple technologies and, often times, by entirely different groups. Combining these methodologies in one solution enables reviewers to easily see which documents bubble to the top and make decisions on next steps.  The efficiencies gained by performing the processes in tandem are very powerful.

Visualizing results lets users more quickly inform case strategy teams and make any necessary adjustments to search terms, deadlines, budget and other important factors. The new functionality also includes the ability to easily identify conversations between parties, designate key custodians, and see a “heatmap” that registers keyword frequency against a variety of criteria, such as keyword by custodian. Search results also populate a timeline that displays historical occurrences of responsive terms.

The experience is now comparable to how one would buy merchandise from an online retailer, as a buyer would browse categories, use filters and send the desired products to the shopping cart.  In this workflow, users will browse data fields as categories and then promote potentially responsive documents to review. Visual searching and filtering are additional enhancements, while traditional methods of working through these procedures are still available.

Ipro’s New Streaming Engine Supercharges Eclipse SE

Tempe, Ariz., January, 25, 2017 — Ipro Tech, LLC, a worldwide leader in eDiscovery solutions, announced today the widespread demand for its SE Streaming module. This new processing module for Eclipse SE supercharges data streaming directly into Ipro’s desktop review application. SE Streaming is developed using the processing engine also found in Ipro’s Automated Digital Discovery (ADD) platform.

“One of Ipro’s 2016 initiatives was to adapt solutions for a wider spectrum of eDiscovery technology users,” said Ipro CEO Kim Taylor. “With SE Streaming, we’ve delivered. It’s a perfect solution for users that are looking for fast, high-end technology in a desktop application that is easy to use.”

Released in late 2016, SE Streaming was immediately implemented by a number of firms, as the module offers some of the most sought-after features in eDiscovery. SE Streaming gives everyone the ability to use sophisticated, high-quality eDiscovery software without being burdened with hardware and technical staffing overhead. As with all things Ipro, SE Streaming is simple, affordable, and automated.

The new module uses ADD’s processing engine to stream data into review at double the speed of today’s best desktop applications, at a minimum. SE Streaming also provides the high-demand feature of de-duplication based on custodian and other global criteria. Many of these features were previously unavailable to smaller companies that did not have in-house capabilities to manage the infrastructure.

SE Streaming allows users to further streamline their workflows through features, including intelligent file-filtering options and support of multiple-document archives, embedded files, password protected files and more. SE Streaming produces data that is fully compatible with the ADD platform should users need to upgrade to a more powerful technology.

2016: A Record Year for Ipro Tech

Tempe, Ariz., January 24, 2017 — Ipro Tech, LLC, a worldwide leader in litigation technology solutions for nearly three decades, announced today the conclusion of a banner year for growth and innovation. In 2016, Ipro revolutionized eDiscovery with its flagship Automated Digital Discovery (ADD) platform, and continued to release solutions to make the process more simple, affordable and automated.

“When a group of talented and industry-savvy veterans share a singular commitment, it produces some remarkable advancements.” said Ipro President & CEO Kim Taylor. “It’s the reason we come to work, and there’s no telling what we’ll accomplish next year.”

Ipro set the pace for 2016 with the release of the ADD platform, which uses data streaming and automation to get ESI from hard drive to review in minutes, tracking evidence with its Media Manager component. In May, Ipro released ADD Self Service, which enables end-users to easily upload ESI directly into review using predefined settings.

Throughout the year, Ipro continued to boost ADD’s enormous capability with features including forensic image processing support, foreign-language OCR, a simplified case-creation process via the web, and IproQ, the plug-in that enables direct data processing to the Relativity platform, as well as the ability to leverage Ipro processing workers from within Relativity. Ipro also completed development on the supercharged ingestion engine SE Streaming, launched a migration utility for Summation, opened the moderated user forum Ipro Community — and much more.

In attracting new clients, Ipro set record numbers. Today, more than ever, corporations, law firms, government agencies and service providers are empowered through Ipro technology. In addition, Ipro shattered records for total billings and revenue, and expanded its team with experienced resources to support this tremendous growth.

“Despite our record year, our teams will not slow down, but rather push forward with more intensity to deliver on our promise to simplify eDiscovery,” Taylor said. “We’re looking forward to having an even better 2017.”
