Ipro Achieves Record Sales and Growth in 2015

Company Experiences Fourth Consecutive Year of Growth

TEMPE, ARIZ. – Ipro Tech, LLC, a worldwide leader in the design of eDiscovery workflow software, today announced that sales results for 2015 gave Ipro its fourth consecutive year of growth, representing a double-digit increase over 2014. The company attributes much of its success to strong performance from its flagship processing product eCapture and high growth from Eclipse, analytic web-based review, and Eclipse SE, all-in-one desktop review.

Eclipse, sold separately or as part of the ADD Automated Digital Discovery® platform, gained greater adoption by well-known law firms and service providers in 2015, including DTI Document Technologies, Inc., D4, LLC, and Discovia, due to its robust features, performance and built-in analytics. Ipro also experienced positive response and significant participation in its expanded partner program. The company continues to work closely with its extensive service partner network to deliver improved efficiency and greater cost-savings to the market.

In Q4 2015, Ipro also released the ADD Automated Digital Discovery platform, a patent-pending data-streaming technology that eliminates batches and reduces the starts and stops of eDiscovery, allowing data to flow into review much faster. ADD unifies and automates the eDiscovery workflow unlike any other solution on the market.

“With the release of ADD, Ipro is truly revolutionizing the industry.  We’re excited about what 2016 holds for the company and our customers,” said Kim Taylor, President and CEO, Ipro. “We feel extremely confident that with our current portfolio, Ipro will set a fifth consecutive sales record this year.”

Ipro will be exhibiting at Legaltech New York Conference, Booths 302 and 305, February 2-4, 2016.

Ipro Delivers Simplicity, Affordability and Automation with ADD

New Release of ADD Automated Digital Discovery® Introduces Media Manager™ and ipro-Q™

TEMPE, ARIZ. – For corporations, law firms and service providers who demand a simple and automated way to manage eDiscovery, Ipro Tech, LLC, today announced a new release of its workflow platform, ADD Automated Digital Discovery®. The latest version introduces Media Manager, the first integrated web-based solution to completely automate and optimize identifying and tracking electronic files across the eDiscovery workflow. The release also includes ipro-Q, delivering seamless integration between Ipro processing and Relativity review on the ADD platform.

ADD utilizes patent-pending technology to stream data to review in minutes without the time delays, errors and budget overruns common in other eDiscovery systems. With the addition of Media Manager and ipro-Q, customers now have a workflow that automates the eDiscovery process with forensically sound data streaming and flexible review options, helping to keep case teams aligned and productive from start to finish.

“Over the years our industry has adopted complicated and disconnected workflows. With this release of ADD, Ipro is solving critical business issues that have persistently plagued the industry,” said Kim Taylor, President and CEO, Ipro. “We continue to raise the bar on what customers can expect from Ipro and its commitment to our {i-proclamation}TM to deliver simple, affordable and automated eDiscovery.”

With Media Manager, users can also add key delivery and metadata information to source media (hard drives, thumb drives, DVDs, etc.) and electronic files for better document management and tracking. The tool makes it easy to auto-generate barcodes, copy media content to the network to create and track discovery jobs, and map media paths to existing clients and custodians. Customers can generate extensive reporting to demonstrate forensically sound media management.

Additional features in ADD include:

Faster Processing Speed – with ADD’s powerful copy workers the time it takes to discover, extract, OCR and export data is faster than ever before.

Continuous Streaming – provides hands-free loading of data into Ipro Eclipse document review, as well as Relativity, at user defined intervals. This eliminates the manual process of managing export volumes and data load files.

First-Pass Filtering – applies filtering options such as date ranges, deduplication and de-NIST to cull data at the same time documents are streaming into review. This rapid ingestion offers the ability to apply advanced analytics and filtering at different stages in the review application.

Families Stay Together – Document families (e.g., emails and attachments) are automatically kept together while streaming through the workflow to ensure proper tracking and best practices.

On-Demand License Consumption – ADD workers employ user licenses based on the types of tasks in queue, allowing a computer to accept any type of work (e.g., copying, filtering) as needed. ADD automatically routes tasks to the appropriate workers, boosting its speed and performance. This unique licensing model allows customers greater flexibility in how they manage their workloads and respond to the demands of specific cases.

This release also includes updates to the company’s early case assessment tool Allegro, analytic web-based review Ipro Eclipse and the high-speed processing tool eCapture, which has long been the “gold standard” in the industry. Allegro enhancements are focused on load file performance, indexing and PDF handling to further improve efficiencies. Ipro Eclipse’s release introduces improvements in speed, functionality and reporting. The eCapture update advances processing performance, expands Ipro Eclipse export features and OCR capabilities.

Ipro’s Automated Digital Discovery (ADD) platform will be showcased at the upcoming Legaltech New York Conference, February 2-4, 2016 in booths 302 and 305.

Legaltech News Features Ipro’s Expanded Partnership with Content Analyst

New York

The companies hope to show companies how valuable TAR can be to their workflows.

Ian Lopez, Legaltech News

Technology-assisted review (TAR) is, in many ways, ‘the talk of the town,’ though for many companies it hasn’t been more than just talk. In an effort to demonstrate the value of analytics within the e-discovery workflow, legal software solution provider Ipro Tech has announced that it will be renewing and expanding upon its existing partnership with analytics provider Content Analyst.

With the expanded agreement, Ipro can utilize Content Analyst technology in its products. Ipro will also continue in its licensing of Content Analyst’s CAAT analytics engine, which organizes documents around content, regardless of whether the same words are used in descriptions of concepts or topics. Ipro uses this engine to serve analytical needs like near duplication, clustering, email threading, conceptual search and categorization for TAR.

“With data collection sizes and content types growing so dramatically, Ipro believes analytics is a key element to delivering a simple, affordable and automated e-discovery workflow,” Kim Taylor, president and CEO of Ipro, told Legaltech News. “By expanding our relationship with Content Analyst, we’ll provide even greater value to our customers. For Content Analyst, more users will have the opportunity to use their analytics engine, CAAT, via Ipro products in different ways and on more types of cases.”

Taylor discussed how this partnership allows clients to experience the benefits of TAR. He said that, historically, both analytics and TAR were priced “on a per gigabyte basis,” and given the once “onerous cost” of analytics in the discovery process, customers “historically missed out” on benefits that analytics can have in their practices.

“We feel strongly that customers shouldn’t be held hostage to gigabyte pricing of analytics,” Taylor said. “Because the costs of analytics are included with Ipro, attorneys no longer have to make decisions of whether they can afford the luxury of TAR or even analytics. By offering this choice, you’ll see analytics used more often and more successfully to help bring down costs and win cases.”

The relationship between Ipro and Content Analyst goes back to the days when the companies collaborated on the integration of CAAT into Eclipse, Ipro’s web-based review platform. Company officials said in a statement that, over the years the two have worked together, the tech integration as well as the partnership behind it helped Ipro “create a distinctive workflow and model that helps its customers lower their eDiscovery costs and reduce the time spent on litigation reviews.”

“Ipro and Content Analyst have had a long relationship working together to bring innovative eDiscovery solutions to the market. Kurt Michel, president and CEO of Content Analyst said in a statement. “Their approach to technology assisted review has made a big impact, and we’re delighted our industry-leading CAAT engine will continue to be an important part of their future development plans.”

Michel told LTN that Content Analyst expanded its relationship with Ipro because of the companies’ “mutual understanding that analytics provides value to the entire e-discovery process, and not just review.”

“Litigation professionals … have come to expect a more intelligent experience with their e-discovery software applications,” Michel said. “Our CAAT advanced analytics engine enables consumer-like intelligence to power highly efficient-discovery capabilities such as conceptual search, near deduplication, dynamic clustering, email threading and predictive coding. Ultimately, corporate counsel and litigation support teams benefit by saving millions in linear review while simultaneously presenting the most relevant information for any legal matter.”

Given the agreement between the companies, Eclipse’s future releases and Ipro’s Automated Digital Discovery (ADD) “will take full advantage of CAAT’s advanced analytics capabilities.”

“We’ve seen firsthand what the addition of CAAT analytics can do to improve efficiencies and workflow,” Taylor said. “It is our goal to continue to look for ways to improve the e-discovery process. CAAT has become an industry standard and we have a proven track record with implementing their technology, so it only makes sense to apply it to the rest of the eDiscovery workflow.”

It’s widely known that while TAR can benefit legal professionals across the industry, there is a lasting reluctance to implement. As Gareth Evans, co-chair of Gibson Dunn’s Electronic Discovery and Information Governance Practice Group, wrote in LTN: “To a large extent, this lack of adoption is due to attorneys’ ignorance of TAR. But even those who may want to use TAR can be quickly deterred by a number of factors.”

Despite the widespread “ignorance” of TAR among legal professionals, some pros are attempting to provide some guidance.

In the Electronic Discovery Institute’s “The EDI Judge’s Guide to Discovery” – a guide on contemporary e-discovery concepts that will be provided to district and magistrate judges across the country – contains chapters that attempt to make TAR more digestible for those not very versed in e-discovery. Shannon Capone Kirk, e-discovery counsel at Ropes & Gray and co-author of chapters on technology assisted review (TAR) and forensics, told LTN last month that the goal of her contribution to the book was to “demystify [TAR], and understand that it’s actually a more dissectible process.”

“Not that we’re Rembrandt, but it’s like asking a master painter to explain how to paint a landscape,” Kirk said. “That’s the part I found really difficult: We live this stuff every single day. This is all we do, so we know all the nuances of technology assisted review and statistics, and how the algorithms are all changing.”

Taylor said that utilizing TAR “is an educational process.”

Ipro will be at Legaltech New York to demonstrate its analytics workflow. The event takes place at the New York Hilton in Midtown from Feb. 2-4.

Why Law Firms Need to Streamline E-Discovery Review

A Legaltech News webinar discussed how streamlining is becoming a necessity rather than an option.
Written by Ian Lopez, Legaltech News

Legaltech News recently held a webinar to educate legal industry professionals about the benefits of streamlining the e-discovery review process. Titled “Time is Money: Streamlining the E-Discovery Review Process,” the discussion aimed to help companies take an honest look at the efficiency of their own processes and determine the best way to gather and present accurate data while engaging in effective handling practices.

In her opening remarks, LTN Editor-in-Chief Erin Harrison noted that this isn’t an easy process, describing a history where IT, legal and vendors were at odds. This, she said, presented a “cantankerous atmosphere” where discovery became a well-known “cost increaser.”

“To say that it is a challenge for legal firms and corporate counsel to streamline their approach to the e-discovery process with the goal of efficient yet still comprehensive review at the forefront is what I would call a drastic understatement,” Harrison said. “One software vendor recently claimed that e-discovery is so expensive that it has been weaponized to drive opposing parties into submission, claiming it forces swift settlements, delays justice, cheats clients and enrages judges.”

“The problem is we don’t talk—the various members of our team aren’t talking enough and aren’t talking about the right thing,” said panelist Geoffrey A. Vance, partner at Perkins Coie and head of its discovery service group. He suggested that collaboration needs to begin at the start of the discovery process, whether within the firm to pair the right person with the right task, or with government agencies and others on both sides of litigation proceedings. The goal, he said, is to get everyone to apply their expertise and come up with the best, cost effective plan.

Vance outlined “five cost-saving e-discovery lessons”: collaborate and listen; review less; increase review rate; make better decisions; and enact efficient quality control.

Vance said that e-discovery accounts for at least 25 percent of litigation budget. The lesson, he says, is, “to do whatever we can to significantly reduce the universe of what will be reviewed by lawyers.” Vance said that by employing early case assessment (ECA) tools, analytics and “common sense,” firms can reduce their review materials by 80 percent, thus reducing costs.

As for expediting review, Vance said clients equate this idea to sacrificing quality. However, it allows for better, faster work.

“We’re putting our reviewers in a better position to understand the context of what they’re reviewing so that they will spend less time figuring out whether that information is relevant, or responsive, or privileged, or whatever we’re asking them to determine,” Vance said. Suggestions for simplifying review included using email threading and near-duplicate identifiers so reviewers have context, allowing them to make more decisions with better consistency.

Speaking on his firm’s own enhancements, Vance said, “[We’re] not at a point where people can weaponize discovery and use it as a sword. Rather, it’s back to where it should be … it’s just a manner to exchange information so we can figure out what’s going on and ultimately a jury or a judge can figure out who should win and who should lose.”

“I’m very excited about where the industry is,” said panelist and Ipro president Kim Taylor. “I do believe that there are very progressive companies out there … really trying to truly make e-discovery simple, automated and affordable.”

Taylor elaborated on automation benefits: “Just like that, we would eliminate all these starts and stops, we would reduce the chances per error, and the humans can then be consulting and having a live chat versus doing these mundane tasks.”

Using the example of technology assisted review (TAR), he illustrated how technology could enhance data processing, review and analysis. He cited getting data into the review process is the “biggest culprit” to efficiency.

“What we’re looking for is maybe a modern factory … How can we do more with less? How can we have workflow and automation helping to remove those starts and stops?” Taylor asked.

Panelists agreed that to handle the expected increase in data—there will be enough data to fill over a half-trillion 32 GB tablets—companies must streamline their e-discovery process.
