Xerox Unveils CategoriX; Makes E-Discovery Faster, More Accurate and Cost Effective

Xerox Unveils CategoriX

Xerox is making legal document review faster and more accurate than ever with CategoriX, a new technology that uses input from the legal team to automatically classify millions of documents, significantly reducing the amount of material requiring manual review. This technology breakthrough has the potential to disrupt the cost and speed with which relevant information can be identified.

Part of Xerox’s Smarter Document ManagementSM technology suite, CategoriX allows attorneys to fine tune classification requirements as they uncover new case information – increasing the accuracy of the document review process. The tool also detects when two similar documents appear in different categories, prompting the legal team to take a closer look to ensure consistency.

“The sheer volume of content associated with large scale legal reviews is growing dramatically, often resulting in a tradeoff between review speed and accuracy,” said Vivian Tero, program manager for GRC Infrastructure, IDC. “Solutions like Xerox Legal Business Services' CategoriX combine technology with the attorney expertise in the document review process with the intended outcome of enabling more consistency, faster review times and lower attorney review costs."

CategoriX, developed at Xerox Research Centre Europe, is one of many innovations that simplify time-consuming work processes, such as legal discovery. The technology is the latest enhancement to the Xerox Legal Business Services’ e-discovery platform and is supported by additional tools that streamline the analysis of legal documentation.
