CaseLogistix, Anacomp‘s litigation document review platform, has announced new functionality to handle native documents and other changes. Anacomp are amongst the sponsors of the e-Disclosure Information Project.
CaseLogistix has always had the ability to handle documents in their native format (150 file types at the last count). The enhancement assigns a unique identifier to each document – as opposed to pages – allowing concept search tools to treat single-page tiff files as a single document.
Other changes include improved management of redacted files, printing of attachments with parent documents and other parent/child enhancements, a combined native/image tab in the document viewer and direct native file ingestion.
The further moves towards full native handling are consistent with a growing trend which reduces the amount of work – and therefore expense – at the front-end of the process, not least because the decision to convert native files to tiff can be deferred until later in the process. Anything which speeds up, and reduces the cost of, the start-up is to be welcomed.
There is more information in Anacomp’s press release which includes comments from both Chief Technology Officer John Turner and the respected commentator Tom O’Connor, both of whom I saw at ILTA in Dallas last week, along with Billy Hyatt, one of the CaseLogistix founders. Press releases, however well written, are no substitute for speaking to the people responsible for the changes and seeing the product for yourself.
