Digital Reef Announces Enhanced Integration with kCura's Relativity

Enhancing the Digital Reef Connector for Relativity Provides a Seamless eDiscovery User Experience

NEW YORK, Jan 31, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Digital Reef, leading Software as a Service (SaaS) eDiscovery provider, offering the fastest and smartest path to legal review, today announced that it has enhanced its integration with kCura's Relativity to help drive down eDiscovery project costs and timelines. The announcement came at LegalTech New York 2012, the legal industry's premier exposition of technology and thought leadership.

Since partnering with kCura in January 2011, Digital Reef has empowered litigation support professionals and legal counsel to produce culled, review-ready native documents directly into Relativity with the push of a button.

The updated connector, available in Digital Reef Advanced ECA 4.0, includes new features that significantly reduce costs and time associated with e-discovery by helping legal teams identify and gain insight from relevant documents. These features include:

-- Predictive Priority(TM) -- Digital Reef's technology-assisted review combines human intelligence and data analysis to dramatically reduce time wasted in review by ensuring high priority documents are sent to senior attorneys more quickly. Predictive Priority also helps deliver lower priority documents to staff and contract reviewers to significantly drive down review costs.

-- Email Threads -- Digital Reef automatically analyzes all electronically stored information and re-builds email threads. Making this information directly accessible in Relativity helps attorneys quickly see who communicated with whom, without additional costs or delay.

-- Document Clusters -- Digital Reef groups documents based on semantically significant terms and exposes the naturally forming categories of information. These categories can be easily reviewed to hone in on the most responsive documents for the legal matter.

"By strengthening our integration with Relativity, Digital Reef customers can access our powerful analytics tools, and quickly and efficiently move the results of their analysis to Relativity for further review," said Colby Dyess, Product Management Director at Digital Reef, Inc.

"We appreciate Digital Reef continuing to advance their integration with Relativity," said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. "We continue to work on making Relativity a solid platform that allows other eDiscovery software companies, like Digital Reef, to provide seamless interoperability with our software. It gives our users the control to construct the best eDiscovery solution to meet their needs."
