Washington, D.C., March 7, 2018 — FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced a new technology partnership between Ringtail and Evolver, a leading legal services company and the developer of the native Excel redaction application XLerator. XLerator will provide Ringtail users with a streamlined way to review, redact and produce native Excel files.
This partnership and technology integration leverage the recently released Ringtail Software Development Kit ("SDK") which provides the necessary framework to enable the seamless integration of third-party applications into the Ringtail user interface.
"I’m thrilled to have Evolver as a partner. This partnership is just one example of how our recently released SDK extends innovative applications to our global Ringtail user community," said Bill Adams, a Senior Managing Director and Head of the Ringtail business. "Legal teams know full well the challenges of reviewing and redacting native Excel files, and XLerator is the most comprehensive and easy-to-use solution I’ve seen."
Bruce S. Markowitz, Vice President of eDiscovery at Evolver, added: "With the Ringtail team, we’ve found a like-minded partner — one focused on technology that saves time and reduces the cost and complexity of e-discovery. The integration of XLerator into the Ringtail platform expands the reach of Evolver’s innovative approach to the review, redaction and production of Microsoft Excel files and complements the standard Ringtail review and redaction tools perfectly."
XLerator was developed by Evolver’s in-house software development team. The web-based tool is used by law firm, corporate, and government clients to replace the burdensome processes of imaging and redacting TIFFed Excel files. Users can perform keyword searches and apply multiple types of redactions across all Excel files and duplicates including: inverse, targeted, whole worksheet and more. These capabilities — along with more automated features — allow reviewers to not only succinctly review and redact native Excels files, but also to produce them with redactions in native format, meaning no more TIFFs.
Legal teams can license the XLerator application for use in any Ringtail deployment model and on an annual or per project basis.
The Ringtail e-discovery platform helps law firms, corporations and government agencies around the world tackle the complexity and scope of e-discovery. Ringtail software processes and culls data, provides a broad and deep feature set for data review and coding, and empowers users with a comprehensive set of redaction and production capabilities. Ringtail also features actionable and dynamic visualizations driven by sophisticated analytics including conceptual clustering, complex network presentation, predictive coding and continuous active learning. Ringtail is available in a SaaS deployment model, as a managed services model with assistance from Ringtail’s partner network or as an on-premises installation.
Ringtail e-discovery software has received numerous honors from the legal and IT industries, including selection by The National Law Journal, The Legal Intelligencer, The Recorder and KMWorld as a leader in e-discovery software.
