Recommind transforms the ediscovery user experience with Axcelerate 5

Recommind, a leader in information intelligence, today released Axcelerate 5, the next generation of its pioneering cloud-based eDiscovery platform.

The result of a two-year development effort in close collaboration with practitioners, customers and thought leaders, Axcelerate 5 provides a completely redesigned interface, new analytics, visualisation tools and streamlined automation.  These new features dramatically simplify the eDiscovery workflow while enhancing the usability of Recommind’s pioneering Predictive Coding for review prioritisation and data analytics. The result is an industry-changing combination of power and simplicity. 

Axcelerate 5 sets a new standard for review efficiency and early insight, helping users find the key facts that will make or break their case faster and more reliably.   The resulting workflows are intuitive and flexible so that users can take control of their data with confidence right from the outset, informing their legal strategy for better outcomes on cases large and small.

“Recommind has done a great job with Axcelerate 5,” said Florinda Baldridge, Global Director of Practice Support at Norton Rose Fulbright. “I am particularly impressed by the user-friendly design and outstanding visualisation. Axcelerate 5 also offers sophisticated workflow tools that will greatly increase project management and document review productivity.”  

Axcelerate 5 contains more than 300 enhancements and new features including:

Consumer Grade User Experience
Leveraging the same technologies used in leading web applications, the new HTML5 interface has been redesigned from the ground up with a focus on maximum ease of use.  It features intuitive controls and advanced visualisation for a better user experience.

Communication Analysis
With the newly enhanced Hypergraph, attorneys can uncover hidden connections and useful patterns that emerge from communication streams. A visual representation of the interrelationships among custodians and other entities provides valuable insights to validate collection choices, identify risks and guide review workflows for faster and more accurate results.

Next-Generation Viewer
The document viewer is a major step forward for eDiscovery productivity. It is browser-agnostic, has no plugins to install and works from any computer.  New rendering technology ensures a near-native experience with even the most complex and detailed documents.

Intelligent Redaction
Axcelerate 5 lets users redact-on-the-fly right in the near-native view, avoiding the need to wait and pay for  unnecessary conversions to TIFF. Axcelerate can also redact full pages, perform negative redactions, redact search terms and even use analytics to find personally identifiable information (PII) and redact it for users instantly.

End-of-Branch Email Analysis
Built-in email thread suppression helps users dramatically reduce their review volumes, with no external processing required. Using sophisticated analytics, Axcelerate 5 reliably identifies email threads and elegantly displays the branches, so users can confidently focus on just the most inclusive communications.

Interactive Review Dashboards
The Predictive Coding Dashboard maps the review journey, shows progress at every stage and helps predict costs and timelines. For matters of all sizes, it’s now easier than ever for users to review only what they truly need to, and to confidently know when the review is complete.

“We’re pleased to see Recommind continue to expand beyond predictive coding,” said attorney David Horrigan, analyst and counsel at 451 Research. “By redesigning the user interface and working to enhance the system’s automation, Recommind has moved to make its new Axcelerate 5 release an offering for its current legal customers as well as new ones in different business verticals.”

Axcelerate 5 delivers the full range of EDRM capabilities in a unified platform. This all-in-one approach removes the need for risky and time-consuming data handoffs between applications or service providers.  It also removes piecemeal, add-on service costs and third-party licensing fees from the eDiscovery financial equation.

“Axcelerate 5 sets a new benchmark in eDiscovery,” said Bob Tennant, CEO of Recommind. “It provides the industry’s most interactive, user-centric experience without sacrificing the tremendous power of our pioneering analytics, advanced search and machine learning technology.”
