Lateral Data to Showcase Viewpoint E-Discovery Platform Version 5.6 at LegalTech New York

Enhanced early case assessment capabilities will allow for faster and more thorough elimination of non-relevant data early on in case, reducing time and cost of downstream review; streamlined user interface will allow for better user experience

HOUSTON, TX, December 11, 2013 – Lateral Data, a Xerox company (NYSE: XRX), will be showcasing the upcoming version of its Viewpoint all-in-one e-discovery platform at LegalTech New York on February 4-6 in New York City. The latest enhancements of the software include significant user interface and functionality updates that further streamline the review process for its law firm and corporate end users.

Viewpoint 5.6 includes extensive early case assessment capabilities that allow case teams to gain critical insight into their data early on in the process, eliminating the time and cost of reviewing unnecessary information later on in the process. The software’s integrated Relationship Analyzer tool now includes dynamic visualization tools to help users analyze data faster over very large data sets, such as communications between domains and email addresses, spikes in communications between custodians and communication patterns of interest.

The upcoming release also features faster password decryption that can handle more than five million passwords rapidly, as well as enhanced search functionality that offers a new user interface, more efficient user experience and faster, more robust reporting. 

“Viewpoint 5.6 will allow our clients to navigate the e-discovery process with even greater ease and efficiency than ever before, providing time and cost savings that are critically important to our clients,”  said Matt Berry, founder and president of Lateral Data. “We look forward to demonstrating this release to our clients at LegalTech New York.”

Viewpoint integrates comprehensive functionality in a single product, including data collection, early case assessment, pre-processing and processing, analysis, review and production. By using one product instead of many to manage e-discovery projects, case teams can make the e-discovery process more efficient, reduce costs and eliminate the risks of moving sensitive data between tools.

Lateral Data also will be hosting a number of events at LegalTech New York, including Viewpoint user groups for its law firm and service provider customers as well as a Viewpoint certification refresher course. Since the launch of its certification program last year, hundreds of Viewpoint end users have been certified in sales, processing administration, review and advanced analytics, including Viewpoint Assisted Review, the platform’s integrated technology-assisted review (TAR) module for the automatic prioritization of documents.

Viewpoint can be deployed as on-premise software, accessed as a cloud-based service or delivered as a “backpack” service for on-site, defined projects using the Viewpoint appliance. Viewpoint 5.6 will be available in March 2014. 

LegalTech New York 2014, produced by ALM Media, will take place at the Hilton New York Hotel in New York City. Lateral Data will be exhibiting at booth #1414. More information can be found at
