Learn How iConect’s Xplorer Makes Data Collection Faster and Easier
Data collection is a labor intensive and time consuming process for any firm. One of the biggest reasons for this has traditionally been the fact that identifying the right data to collect isn’t always easy. This results in firms requesting more data then they need, for fear of missing something critical. This, in turn, has led to changes in Rule 26, which now puts greater limits on what data can be collected for a case.
Recently, iConect released a new tool to help firms be more selective with the data they collect. The tool is called Xplorer and it makes it easier to define, control, and collect data throughout the eDiscovery process. Through Xplorer, firms will be able to pare down to the most critical, highly prioritized information, reducing their hours and improving upon their client service.
How it Works
Xplorer collects all of the data important to the internal workings of an organization, ranging from FOIA requests to public records. Data can be managed through collections, which are organized by the firm. Once this data has been properly organized, it can easily be filtered by collection, date, involved partners, and any other critical information. Collections can then be shared to those who require the information, through an easy and secure digital process.
Once data has been requested, it can all be shared and reviewed through Xplorer itself, improving upon both collaboration and security. Further information can be requested as needed – and information that has already been requested will be able to be easily analyzed.
Who Benefits from Using Xplorer?
All firms handling discovery processes can benefit from strong eDiscovery platforms. However, smaller legal firms, will benefit the most. Many smaller firms find themselves held back not by their capabilities but instead by the size of their staff. A process such as eDiscovery requires that both staff members and partners devote a large amount of time going through their data. With a system such as Xplorer, this time can be freed up – allowing a smaller firm to still take on more cases and compete with firms that may have far greater resources.
And Xplorer isn’t just valuable for those who are going through discovery. Xplorer can be used to collect any number of internal documents. Anything that’s critical and confidential can be managed, maintained, and shared through the Xplorer system – perfect for firms that want to protect themselves on a digital security level.
Why Is Xplorer Necessary?
Though iConect Xplorer is particularly useful for internal investigations and audits, it really shines throughout the eDiscovery process. Xplorer makes it faster and simpler for employees to quickly provide information that is relevant and within scope, rather than having to manually sort through data for the information that is most likely to be helpful. This also reduces the chances of extraneous and unhelpful information being entered into the eDiscovery process. Xplorer offers the additional service of consolidating all of the company’s most vital information, protecting confidential data in a single place.
iConect Xplorer can be an instrumental tool throughout the eDiscovery process. As an advanced tool, however, Xplorer’s capabilities may not be fully implemented or realized without professional help. Partnering with an eDiscovery expert will give you a better idea of what iConect Xplorer can do for you.
