Pathway Forensics Accelerates e-Discovery Processing with Equivio Technology

GRC Announcements | June 8, 2012

Pathway Forensics, a Houston-based computer forensics, e-Discovery, and digital investigations firm, has announced its adoption of Equivio's technology for grouping of near-duplicates and email threads. By eliminating data redundancy, the Equivio solution enables Pathway Forensics to enhance the value of its client services.

Pathway Forensics has incorporated Equivio technology as a standard component of its E-Discovery services, which include collection, processing, analysis, hosting and review. Near-duplicate grouping enables Pathway Forensics to accelerate the processing and review of large collections of electronically stored information, thus reducing litigation costs for clients.

“As the volume of electronic documents continues to expand exponentially, our clients are seeking solutions that enable them to increase review efficiency and effectiveness," said Brian Larsen, principal at Pathway Forensics. "Utilizing Equivio's technology for near-duplicates and email threads, we can substantially reduce the number of documents that need to be reviewed by clients, resulting in major cost savings."

The grouping of near-duplicates and email threads allows attorneys to skip redundant data, while focusing exclusively on the unique information in each document. By enhancing the ease of data identification, Equivio reduces the risk of missing key information. The Equivio groupings also ensure similar documents are treated consistently, while increasing review productivity and helping litigators meet tight deadlines.
