Ipro Launches New, Modernized Brand Logo

Pioneering Litigation Technology Company Unveils New Look

Phoenix, AZ (January 28, 2013):  Ipro Tech, Inc., a worldwide provider of litigation management technologies, today unveiled their new logo.  This redesign was overseen by Ipro President & COO, Kim Taylor, who recently joined the Ipro team and will be a critical influence in the rebranding process.

Ipro’s former logo, a blue diamond signifying the company’s longstanding history, will be replaced on all collateral moving forward with a fresher, more colorful image. The three distinct colors and shapes coming together into one spherical design represent not only the integration of Ipro’s three flagship products but the synergy that must exist between the three primary verticals of the electronic discovery: the law firm, the corporation, and the legal service provider.

“Ipro has a long and respected history in litigation technology and we wanted to hold on to that heritage, but modernize it,” said Taylor.  “This new logo, along with our latest releases of Eclipse, eCapture and Allegro, represent the future of Ipro. We’re excited for the industry to see that future this January in New York.”

Ipro’s new logo and latest product releases will be demonstrated in booth 302 at LegalTech New York, taking place January 29-31 in New York, NY.

Ipro to Unveil Revamped Enterprise Products at LegalTech New York 2013

Booth 302 to showcase Allegro, Eclipse, and eCapture 2013

Phoenix, AZ (January 25, 2012):  Ipro Tech, Inc., a worldwide provider of electronic discovery technologies, today announced plans to introduce the latest evolution of the Ipro Enterprise digital discovery platform to LegalTech New York attendees on January 29-31, 2013.  The pioneering company will be showing a sneak preview of the yet-to-be-released 2013 versions of Allegro, eCapture, and Eclipse at the influential show.

Ipro Enterprise is an integrated software solution containing tools for early data assessment, web-based review, e-discovery processing and high-speed production. Designed to streamline the discovery process, it combines advanced features with a simple, intuitive functionality to achieve an easy, straightforward eDiscovery workflow.  In addition to enhancements and features added to the individual products, the 2013 Enterprise suite will feature a “Windows 8” look and feel, a consistent, user-friendly interface across all three applications, and a tighter integration among the products.

The 2013 release of web-based review platform Eclipse will receive the bulk of enhancements, notable among them a change to the SQL database schema for improved performance, the addition of a “Production Shield” to prevent the production of privileged material and avoid claw backs, distributed worker processing, and additional reports for case billing size and user review metrics. Forensic image handling has been added to both early case assessment tool Allegro and processing tool eCapture. eCapture also added the ability to import/export a list of custodians and a simplified dialogue to setup jobs from discovery to processing.

“The 2013 releases of Ipro’s Enterprise products represent a huge leap for these applications that we are excited to share with the industry experts who will most appreciate the power and capabilities of this integrated platform,” Said Kim Taylor, President and COO of Ipro Tech. “Ipro Enterprise was built upon the realization that the eDiscovery workflow is fragmented, inefficient, and wasteful. Organizations everywhere are in need of a comprehensive platform they can use to manage all litigation discovery requests simply and effectively.  We believe the Ipro Enterprise line of products will assist these organizations in simplifying their process while mitigating risk and reducing cost associated with eDiscovery.”

Ipro will be demonstrating the new product releases in booth 302 at LegalTech New York, taking place January 29-31 in New York, NY.

Ipro Announces Additional Export Options with Release of Allegro 3.4.

Enhancements include a host of additional export options to increase load file flexibility and compliance

Phoenix, AZ (December 21, 2012) – Ipro Tech, Inc., a founder of litigation support technology and a worldwide leader in the design of e-Discovery software, today announced the release of Allegro 3.4. Allegro is an early data assessment tool that allows users the quickest access to case data so they can interactively cull document collections while gaining a better understanding of key facts, individuals, and events related to a case before moving on to the costly stages of attorney review. This new release will contain many new features designed to increase load file flexibility and compliance by providing more export options, such as direct export to Relativity and extended metadata retrieval from edocs.

“The main goal of this release was to provide Allegro users with improved flexibility during export to assist with compliance and workflow needs.” Said Jim King, CEO of Ipro Tech, Inc. “With the size of data collections increasing every day, it is no longer feasible for litigants to begin attorney review without first using an early data assessment tool like Allegro to develop strategy and defensibly reduce the amount of data being sent forward. With the addition of these new export options into Allegro, users are able to better incorporate this advanced technology into their digital discovery strategy, allowing them to save time and money while maintaining complete compliance and flexibility within their workflow.”

 Key features incorporated into Ipro Allegro 3.4 are:

  • Direct Export to Relativity: After culling with Allegro, users are now able to directly export to the kCura Relativity review tool if necessary.
  • Retrieval of document metadata from edocs- Users are now able to retrieve and search most commonly requested metadata fields from non-email files to improve compliance with government agencies.
  • Ability to create export group fields- Users are now able to create a single field from multiple fields, such as combining emails’ “Sent Date” and eDocs’ “Modified Date” into one consistently named field for export.  Users are also able to create a multi-value field by appending one field value to another prior to export for increased load file flexibility.
  • Ability to rename metadata fields at export time- Users are able to rename metadata field labels before export to best fit the needs of the client or review technology being used.
  • Creation of RTF natives for Lotus Notes emails in Analyzer and at export time – Users now have an improved native representation of the Lotus Notes email format.
  • Ability to set the de-duplication level for reports- Users can now apply de-duplication within report results at a case, custodian, or collection level to increase report accuracy with regards to de-duplication information.

 Allegro is the early data assessment component of the Ipro Enterprise digital discovery platform, a portfolio of advanced products spanning the EDRM that are built on industry-proven Ipro technology, allowing organizations to simplify their process, mitigate their risk, and reduce their cost by incorporating a comprehensive workflow solution into their digital discovery strategy.  Other Ipro applications found in the Enterprise platform are review tool Eclipse and high-speed processing and production engine, eCapture.  This web-based platform can be deployed on-premises or via the cloud.

 The entire Ipro product line, including Ipro Allegro, will be shown in booth 302 at LegalTech New York. For more information on Allegro or the Ipro Enterprise litigation content management system, visit https://iprotech.com.
