Scarab Consulting Enhances eDiscovery Services with Addition of Proficient Review(TM), Computer Assisted Review Solution

AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Scarab Consulting, a national provider of litigation consulting, information governance, and discovery services, today announced the addition of Proficient Review to their discovery service offerings for law firms and corporations. Proficient Review is Scarab's computer-assisted review solution which leverages kCura's Relativity, the leading computer-assisted review technology on the market.

Proficient Review is an extension of Scarab's end-to-end collection, processing and hosted review solution. The Proficient Review computer-assisted workflow leverages the expertise of the reviewer to suggest coding decisions, while the Relativity technology works behind the scenes to propagate the decisions of the reviewers and decide whether the documents are responsive. Reviewers' decisions are captured, analyzed and used to teach the system to apply the decisions' logic to conceptually similar documents found in the database. Proficient Review integrates Scarab's highly experienced consultants and processes along with Relativity technology to provide a unique, defensible and cost-saving computer-assisted review solution.

"Review is the most costly portion of all eDiscovery costs combined, so this is the primary area we can help cut significant costs for our clients," said Bob Gomes, CEO of Scarab Consulting. "In many cases, the volume of potentially relevant information makes a linear review nearly impossible due to cost and time constraints. Proficient Review allows our clients to discover the facts of the case earlier than with a standard review process, thus saving significant time and therefore costs. In fact, it can save clients at least 40 percent of review time and costs in many cases." "Scarab has developed a defensible predictive coding work flow process, using Relativity's proven, transparent computer-assisted review technology. We've chosen the right solution to significantly reduce risk in the discovery process." As a Relativity Premium Hosting Partner, Scarab maintains the infrastructure and personnel necessary to support Relativity. Scarab consultants have received extensive training on the Relativity platform and have received the certification necessary to ensure the computer-assisted workflow is flawless. The Proficient Review solution also ensures clients understand the reporting tools to gauge progress and to prove the computer's accuracy.
