) recently announced the introduction of an updated version of
the Ringtail e-discovery software, which is fortified with an
intuitive and visual predictive coding feature that provides
users with greater confidence in results. The software was
launched by the company's FTI Technology business segment.
Combining case management and document review in a single
platform, Ringtail offers a comprehensive e-discovery solution
with powerful data analytics and visual review tools to improve
the productivity and efficiency of legal review. In addition, the
software has flexible deployment options and market-leading
functionality to reduce the overall cost of e-discovery.
The predictive coding feature of Ringtail software facilitates a
visual approach of a user manual to train a classifier to code
large document sets quickly and defensibly. This includes an
intuitive workflow, visual validation of a model's performance,
and a projections matrix to examine recall and precision targets.
Other than the predictive coding functionality, Ringtail enables
users to analyze data and determine trends, characteristics and
the potential cost of review. In addition, it also helps to
analyze large document populations faster and collate related
information with ease by linking documents to issues, binders,
transcripts, saved searches and other objects. The advanced
version of Ringtail is likely to be made available on-demand by
the end of third quarter 2013.
