Press release

West Palm Beach, Fla., September 11, 2013 FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced that Ringtail® 8.3, e-discovery software from the firm's FTI Technology segment, has been selected as a KMWorld magazine 2013 trend-setting product. KMWorld editors, industry analysts, vendors and knowledge management practitioners assessed hundreds of products and selected Ringtail 8.3 as one of the top solutions demonstrating clearly identifiable technology breakthroughs to serve clients.

“Ringtail 8.3 was selected by the panel because it demonstrates thoughtful, well-reasoned innovation and execution for the most important constituency of them all — the customer,” said Hugh McKellar, Editor-in-Chief of KMWorld magazine. “With Ringtail 8.3, users have all the features and benefits of advanced analytics for legal review, with an easy-to-deploy SaaS option.”

The easy-to-use Ringtail 8.3 software can be accessed and managed in a secure, self-serve private cloud and offers new, improved review workflow and other management tools to support faster and more accurate legal reviews for Ringtail users. With the addition of the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering, Ringtail users have a complete spectrum of options for handling e-discovery matters of all sizes, including a “do it yourself” approach using on-premise or SaaS software, a completely outsourced “do it for me” managed service model, or a hybrid model based on the right combination of software and services to meet specific client requirements.

“This industry recognition is especially gratifying because we worked closely with our clients to build a secure SaaS solution that meets the unique legal requirements of e-discovery,” said Joel Jacob, a Managing Director in FTI Technology. “As data loads increase, Ringtail SaaS provides our clients with the document review and workflow management tools to quickly and cost-effectively respond to e-discovery demands.”

In addition to the KMWorld magazine award, FTI Technology recently was named as a leader in Gartner’s "Magic Quadrant for E-discovery Software" report (Debra Logan, Alan Dayley, Sheila Childs, June 10, 2013). From its award-winning Ringtail software to its Acuity™ managed review service and Predictive Discovery solution, FTI Technology helps clients streamline the entire e-discovery process and provides a single point of e-discovery accountability. Altogether, FTI Technology provides a smart and comprehensive approach to improve the e-discovery process, contain costs without cutting corners and manage critical enterprise information demands.
