Press release

Washington, D.C., Jan. 31, 2017 — FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) today announced that its Ringtail business has launched version 9.0 of its award-winning e-discovery software.

Ringtail 9.0 provides law firms with a competitive advantage via its combination of visual document review, integrated processing and production and customizable workflows. Ringtail has the time- and cost-saving features that law firm clients expect their counsel to understand and employ in representing their interests. With a newly designed portal, law firms can drive smarter e-discovery projects and develop new service offerings for clients.

"We’ve combined the best processing, production, analytics and document review features into a single, easy-to-manage application and have transformed the way we deliver and update our software so our clients enjoy the latest features and optimized performance at all times," said Bill Adams, a Senior Managing Director and Head of the Ringtail Business. "With Ringtail, law firms can provide more cost-effective e-discovery services to their clients as well as expand into areas like data analytics, predictive coding and managed review. Ringtail gives e-discovery experts what they most need – an accessible, powerful technology framework to utilize on a wide variety of projects."

Ringtail 9.0 has more than 200 new and enhanced features designed to improve the speed and efficiency of document review and case management. The new client portal dramatically reduces the costs and complexity associated with switching to a new e-discovery platform.

Notable features in version 9.0 include:

  • New case home and productivity dashboards: From gauging the status of review projects to analyzing keyword search terms, Ringtail 9.0’s new dashboards present information that helps reviewers and review managers be more informed and more productive.
  • Conditional coding with support for custom macros: Powered by a dynamic user interface that presents information in real-time based on reviewers’ inputs, conditional coding delivers an intelligent approach to the coding workflow. Legal teams can create coding macros which give reviewers the accelerator they need to code documents in a much more nuanced and error-free way.
  • New multi-tenant client portal: Law firms can effortlessly create, manage and track cases and organizations with Ringtail’s new multi-tenant portal. From starting cases quickly to offering more intelligent data analysis and invoicing, this portal gives law firms more flexibility in how they bill clients.
  • Weekly updates via continuous delivery: The new Ringtail 9.0 portal receives weekly updates. From performance optimizations, feature additions and bug fixes Ringtail updates are fast, seamless and non-intrusive. Law firms will enjoy the benefits of being on the cutting edge of innovation minus the pains of being an early adopter.
  • New website for all things Ringtail: A new website has launched to support the new feature set and continuous delivery model. The new site includes training videos, certification courses, searchable documentation and an extensive knowledge base designed to keep Ringtail users productive and efficient.

"Ringtail effortlessly blends a variety of complex technologies into a single, powerful user interface," said Skip Walter, Chief Product Officer for FTI Technology. "And behind that interface is a world-class development team and product management organization that cares about its users. Our technology and people give us a unique ability to deliver incredible value and new opportunities for law firms, transforming core business processes like e-discovery and investigations."
