New Software Release: Breeze eDiscovery Suite
Document Processing for eDiscovery
Makes This Painful Litigation Process Affordable & Easy To Do In-house
Tulsa, Oklahoma (August 21, 2009)—Breeze Legal Solutions, the innovative litigation software developer, launches Breeze eDiscovery Suite to enable law firms to expertly process Native and image files in-house. Breeze eDiscovery Suite specializes in identifying and extracting metadata from Native file documents, Native file to TIF conversion, electronic Bates stamping and load file creation for litigation document production.
When investigating the grounds of a case or defending a client, legal groups gather documents in both paper and electronic format, or electronically stored information (ESI). ESI consists of computer files stored on computer hard drives, network servers or hosted sites. As comparison, ESI is discoverable just as a paper document is discoverable from a file cabinet. Breeze eDiscovery Suite has been developed to process both document formats (text and image) during discovery.
ESI that firms encounter most often is saved into Native file formats—such as Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook. Evidently, there are a multitude of software programs and each program can potentially create its own Native file format. This creates obstacles for law firms when attempting to bring eDiscovery processing in-house. This is where Breeze eDiscovery Suite makes the difference for firms with user-friendly and cost-effective in-house document processing.
Additional complexities exist when processing Native files. Often, Native files contain embedded items and objects, which need to be identified and extracted. The embedded objects also contain metadata, which can be crucial to the case. Yet other Native files are created in foreign languages and are Unicode-based. The same processing techniques used for English-based Native files need to be performed on foreign-language Unicode Native files. Generally, this requires specialized processing and can be very costly. But, Breeze eDiscovery Suite has been designed to handle both embedded objects as well as Unicode based Native files by default.
Breeze eDiscovery Suite has Breeze Images built right into the interface. With Breeze Images, the user is able to process image files to single or multi-page TIFs or PDFs; electronically Bates number and Bates Stamp (in a footer as opposed to an overlay); perform high quality Optical Character Recognition (OCR); and create load files for legal databases such as Summation, Concordance, TrialDirector, Sanction and iPro Viewer. Other functions include batch print image files and resetting document breaks in existing load file volumes—right from in-house desktop convenience.
Clearly, DIY (Do-It-Yourself) legal software means litigation attorneys in law firms, government agencies and large corporations no longer need to send these documents to costly outside vendors for processing—which saves law firms money and time. Significantly, the firm can access discovery documents within hours with Breeze eDiscovery Suite, as opposed to extra days it takes for outside vendors or service bureaus to process the same documents.
For hassle-free eDiscovery processing, there’s no comparison to Breeze eDiscovery Suite, “the Swiss Army Knife of document processing,” says Simon Aleman, President and CEO of Breeze Legal Solutions.
Breeze Legal Solutions provides litigation support software. Breeze revolutionized legal software applications by empowering law firms (small shops to large corporations) to process documents in-house, instead of outsourcing to expensive service bureaus. Breeze’s user-friendly DIY cutting edge software maximizes in-house document processing with cost-effectiveness and user controls—while gaining a competitive edge for clients.
