Litigation support company adds two technology modules: Search Magnifier, which provides a better way to analyze and investigate search criteria across the EDRM, and Budget Builder, which enables an accurate estimate of the cost of upcoming projects.
The functionality of Advanced Discovery’s Search Magnifier is unique to the eDiscovery industry. It streamlines the search process by automatically generating and executing multiple searches from the keywords or phrases input by the user. To generate the search queries, Search Magnifier applies multiple Boolean and proximity operators to the input terms. For instance, an input of status (contract negotiation) generates up to six searches with those terms as the basis. Search Magnifier delivers results statistics in an interactive table to support the decision making process.
With Search Magnifier, what was formerly a nine-step process is now a single step.

“We are always looking for techniques to help our clients streamline their discovery process,” said Brian Kawasaki, president of Advanced Discovery. “When we demonstrated the BETA version to some of our power user clients, they were impressed by its simplicity and usefulness. Our clients were looking for a better way to analyze and investigate their search criteria, and we have accomplished that.”
Advanced Discovery will be demonstrating these new offerings at the upcoming LegalTech show in New York, February 4 – 6, 2014. To schedule a demonstration, call Carolyn Young at 312.623.4111 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
