Press release

NEW YORK, NY Oct 13, 2009 - FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE:FCN), the global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organizations protect and enhance their enterprise value, today announced that its Ringtail Legal e-discovery software has been named to KMWorld Magazine’s “Trend-Setting Product Award of 2009” list. KMWorld editors, industry analysts, vendors, and knowledge management (KM) practitioners assessed over 800 products and selected Ringtail Legal as one of the top solutions demonstrating clearly identifiable technology breakthroughs to serve clients.

“E-discovery is an especially complex process, and corporations are struggling to take control of their data in a cost-effective and legally defensible manner,” said Hugh McKellar, editor in chief of KMWorld Magazine. “With this year’s Ringtail Legal launch, FTI Technology clearly demonstrates a spirit of innovation and focus on providing clients with a single system of record for taking control of e-discovery.”  

The Ringtail software recognized by KMWorld was announced in February of 2009 and integrates two market-leading and award-winning applications to deliver a single e-discovery platform, combining the visual analysis and rapid review capabilities of Attenex® with the enterprise-class case management, redaction and production features of Ringtail Legal. This single solution, available both on-premise and on-demand, provides significant advancements in the speed, flexibility and cost-effectiveness of e-discovery and document review.  With these efficiency improvements, Ringtail offers corporations the ability to control more of the e-discovery process with fewer tools and at a lower total cost.  

“Innovation in e-discovery means providing a software platform for clients to streamline the process, reduce its cost and risk, and gain more control over their most sensitive data,” said Eddie OBrien, senior managing director and head of research and development of FTI Technology. “The Ringtail product has been serving the legal market for the last fourteen years and we’re honored to be recognized by KMWorld Magazine for continuing to deliver innovative and flexible solutions that provide measurable results for our clients.”
