NATIONAL HARBOR, Md., Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Oce Business Services will demonstrate eDiscovery, records management and document imaging solutions at the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) conference as well as address topics covered at the show including: improving operational excellence with best practices and technology, paper and electronic records, and computer forensics.
At this year's conference, which runs August 23 - 27 at the Gaylord National Resort and Conference Center, experts from the Oce Records, Compliance and Legal Solutions division will demonstrate the company's CaseData ASP document review system, a Web-based tool that provides collaborative review and production of scanned paper and electronic files. CaseData provides advanced litigation management tools that include:
-- Concept Searching - While keyword searches return only content that exactly matches the search phrase, concept searching identifies content that is conceptually similar to the search phrase. -- Enhanced Proximity Searching - This feature enables users to precisely control the distance between keywords in their discovery searching. -- Keyword Pre-highlighting - This capability enables reviewers to quickly see why a document is relevant to a case without reading the entire document to uncover significant issues or keywords.
Key Survey Findings
The executives at the Oce Business Services booth will also be available to detail key insights every legal professional should know about eDiscovery and records management. These findings were derived from a survey report recently issued by Oce: "The Discovery-Ready Enterprise III: Taking Steps to be Proactively Prepared." The report, which reflects responses from more than 100 legal professionals, indicates that corporations and law firms are taking important steps toward improving their eDiscovery preparedness and records management capabilities:
-- Steps Toward Proactive Preparedness - Corporate attorneys surveyed indicate that the two top actions their organizations are taking toward eDiscovery preparedness include implementing a discovery readiness assessment analysis (26 percent) and creating an internal eDiscovery team (26 percent). Law firm survey respondents say their firms are taking several important steps to boost eDiscovery expertise and preparedness in order to better serve clients. This includes cultivating a combination of internal eDiscovery expertise and external expertise with one or more service providers (56 percent).
-- Steps to Improve Records Management - A growing number of corporate legal departments are "seeing the light" with respect to records management. In Oce's 2008 discovery-ready enterprise survey, 35 percent of in-house counsels surveyed indicated their organization planned to implement a records management program within the next year. In this year's survey, 42 percent of respondents say their company plans to launch a program in the next 12 months. This finding suggests a growing awareness of the importance of records management as a key element in becoming a discovery-ready enterprise.
