Press release

Washington, D.C., Aug. 29, 2016 — FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced that its FTI Technology segment has launched version 8.7 of its award-winning Ringtail® e-discovery software. With more than 150 new features and enhancements, Ringtail 8.7 is designed to dramatically increase user productivity and reduce e-discovery costs.

“Our goal is to continually raise the bar so that members of the Ringtail community are the most productive in the industry,” said Joe Milan, a Managing Director in the Technology segment and leader of the user experience design team. “Working closely with the Ringtail userbase, we focus on new features – like the enhanced dashboards – that provide tangible benefits, such as fewer clicks, faster review speeds and better reporting for more transparency.”

In addition to numerous enhancements for easier management and administration, Ringtail 8.7 helps increase productivity with:

  • Enhanced dashboards: Key metrics, coding patterns, estimates until completion and average reviewer rates help provide an overview of ongoing matters for better planning and transparency.
  • Greater audio features: Review, redact and search multilingual audio files in context with other documents, and speed the review with speaker and noise detection functionality.
  • Improved ingestions and productions: Summary reports on ingestions and productions help teams better scope projects and identify documents with exceptions – encrypted, corrupted, etc. – for special handling.

The Ringtail e-discovery platform supports law firms and corporate legal teams of all sizes that are tasked with managing the complexity and scope of today’s global e-discovery. A full-featured platform, Ringtail software processes and culls data, provides a broad range of tools for quick data review and coding, and gives users a comprehensive set of redaction and production tools. Ringtail also features world-class visual analytics, concept clustering, predictive coding and advanced workflows. Ringtail is available on-premises, on-demand or in a Software as a Service (“SaaS”) deployment model.

FTI Technology and its Ringtail e-discovery software have received numerous honors from the legal and IT industries, including selection by The National Law Journal, The Legal Intelligencer, The Recorder and KMWorld, as e-discovery software and services leaders. FTI Technology was also included in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery Software report (Jie Zhang, Garth Landers, May 18, 2015), and Gartner gave Ringtail the highest product score for the Legal Review Use Case in Gartner’s Critical Capabilities for E-Discovery report (Jie Zhang, Garth Landers, October 6, 2015).
