Lateral Data Releases Viewpoint 5.4

The latest version of the Viewpoint all-in-one platform enables faster and more accurate e-discovery

HOUSTON, November 19, 2012 – Lateral Data, a Xerox company, today announced the availability of version 5.4 of its Viewpoint™ all-in-one e-discovery platform. The latest version of Viewpoint enables corporations, law firms and service providers to perform e-discovery tasks with greater speed, performance and accuracy.

The latest version of Viewpoint introduces the following enhancements:

  • Increased concept searching performance and scalability
  • Redundant text identification for e-mail footers and files
  • Accelerated OCR capabilities
  • CaseMap integration
  • Streamlined GUI modifications
  • Enhanced social media collection capabilities

Additional features include accelerated set-up of new matters, enhanced Asian file type support, improved case-sensitive and accent searching and indexing, and customizable keyboard shortcuts.

“Viewpoint 5.4 is a significant release for us,” said Matt Berry, senior vice president at Lateral Data. “This release gives our clients a greater set of capabilities to move through the e-discovery process more efficiently. Our clients will continue to benefit from seamless integration between all modules in a single platform – processing, review, analytics and production – enabled by the Microsoft SQL and .NET framework backend that was fully built into the product several years ago, as well as a single price point for all components, including analytics and Assisted Review.”

Viewpoint integrates functionality to manage each phase of the e-discovery process – including collection, pre-processing, processing, early case assessment, analytics, review and production – using a single solution, eliminating the need to integrate multiple e-discovery products or import, export and copy data between tools. Viewpoint’s ability to handle small projects and scale to meet hundreds of Gigabytes per day, fully processed and posted into the product’s review module, highlights the strength of the software’s distributed workflow.

Viewpoint 5.4 is available today for licensing to corporate legal departments, law firms and service providers. It can be installed as on-premise behind-the-firewall software or in a hosted software-as-a-service environment. A no cost 30-day evaluation of Viewpoint, which can be enabled in three or fewer days, is available.
