FTI’s Ringtail 8 has been through a complete overhaul in the last couple of years, making it one of the most visually attractive applications on the market as well as one with the power and functionality which legal departments demand. Much of FTI’s focus has been on developing easily-navigated visual representations of the data to make it easy for decision-making lawyers to see and therefore to gain control of their data. The latest development brings predictive coding (which FTI has long offered as a service to its clients) into Ringtail 8.
The focus remains on ease of use and on the ability to make informed predictions based on statistically representative sets. Ringtail provides a visual validation of a model’s performance, and a projections matrix which allows recall and precision targets to be examined and fed into a costs-benefit analysis based on the predicted review volumes. The predictive coding functionality is supported by statistical sampling as well as by Ringtail’s existing visual analysis tools like Mapper and Mines, and the well-established review capabilities.
The new release also includes improved facilities for managing transcripts, enabling users to browse, search, annotate, link, report and export the materials.
I had a web demo last week and will have a proper look at it at ILTA.
