Recommind, a leading provider of enterprise search, automatic categorization and eDiscovery systems for law firms and enterprises, and iCONECT Development, LLC, a leader in litigation support and collaboration software, have announced a strategic alliance that will combine Recommind's Axcelerate eDiscovery application with iCONECT's nXT and eXT Web-based review platforms to create a powerful new litigation review and analysis solution.

According to Recommind, with the integration of these two leading products, customers will immediately benefit from the extensive use of automatically generated insight into a document collection, including each document's responsiveness, priority, privileged nature and relationship to issues and subject codes, thereby greatly enhancing attorney efficiency and significantly reducing review timelines and costs.

iCONECT will utilize the data about people, documents, concepts and phrases that is automatically generated by Axcelerate eDiscovery throughout the nXT EDD platform, extending the utility of this data throughout the review process. Among other benefits, Axcelerate eDiscovery provides unique, language-agnostic tools like conceptual search, First Pass Review and One Click Coding functionality to greatly expedite document review, thereby lowering eDiscovery costs while simultaneously improving reviewer accuracy.

By incorporating Axcelerate eDiscovery's unique feature set, iCONECT users can gain insight into a document collection before the review process starts. The product's First Pass Review and One Click Coding technology automatically organizes and codes documents for privilege, priority, responsiveness and relationship to issues and subject codes from the review's outset, allowing the review process to be implemented far more effectively and saving significant amounts of reviewer time while simultaneously improving their accuracy.In addition, Axcelerate eDiscovery offers law firms and enterprises more accurate and extensive document culling and filtering of virtually all document types, including both structured and unstructured data.
