Ipro and Aquipt process over 1TB of case data within 24 hours

Setting a new benchmark for processing and infrastructure delivery.

Ipro and Aquipt process over 1TB of case data within 24 hours.

Phoenix, AZ─ Ipro Tech, LLC in partnership with Aquipt, Inc. utilized Aquipt’s Matterpoint® computing infrastructure for Ipro Tech to successfully process over 1 TB of e-discovery case data using Ipro’s Allegro early case assessment software in a 24 hour period during a live demonstration at the annual Ipro Innovations conference.

1TB of Data Processed in 24 Hours

During last month’s Ipro Innovations conference, in front of a record breaking live audience, Ipro and Aquipt combined their litigation technologies to demonstrate what few e-discovery specialists have ever seen by processing 1.3TB of data, with OCR turned on for all image based files, in less than 24 hours. The technologies used were Ipro’s early case assessment Allegro software, hosted on Aquipt’s MatterPoint e-discovery infrastructure platform. The demonstration has been creating buzz in the legal industry since the combined power of these two technologies produced results that the industry has never seen before.

Ipro’s early case assessment Allegro software is designed to organize and index massive amounts of case data. Allegro gives the user the ability to quickly get insight into their data set so that they may effectively cull large quantities of data. The typical end result of proper culling, using Allegro, is to have the right set of documents in review. Allegro has been known to reduce review costs up to 90% by quickly and accurately eliminating irrelevant information.

“Using Ipro Enterprise (Allegro, eCapture, and Eclipse) and Aquipt together gives our customers the ability to get great performance without the capital expense. Ipro Enterprise is a complete distributed solution that is ideal for the cloud. This combination gives you flexibility to adapt to the needs of your ever changing workload,” said Kim Taylor, President at Ipro.

The MatterPoint platform is a complete system optimized to host e-discovery applications with compliance and security concerns built in and is centrally managed from its secure web control panel. MatterPoint is always outfitted with the latest computing and storage technologies so that clients can leverage an enterprise-class infrastructure platform without the enterprise-class price of owning and maintaining such an advanced system.

“MatterPoint is changing the way law firms, service providers, and software vendors manage, support, and implement e-discovery resources. No longer limited by physical infrastructure and complex specifications, MatterPoint is a purpose-built platform that delivers performance, simplicity and security, all while still allowing our clients to maintain complete control.” said Rich Wein, CEO at Aquipt.
