IKON Office Solutions Enhances Its Legal Enterprise Solutions Offering With Equivio Technology

WEST CALDWELL, N.J., July 7-- Ricoh Americas Corporation, a leading provider of digital office equipment and advanced document management solutions, today announced that Equivio's data redundancy technology for near-duplicates and email threads is now being used by IKON Office Solutions, a Ricoh company, through the IKON Litovation Solutions Electronic Discovery offering.

"Using Equivio's proven technology to identify near-duplicates and email threads extends the value of the electronic discovery services we provide to our clients," explains Vic Rainsford, Vice President, Ricoh U.S. Enterprise Services, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "By leveraging Equivio's technology as a standard part of the IKON Litovation Solutions Electronic Discovery offering, we are able to help our clients expedite the discovery processes and reduce the cost and complexity of litigation review."

The grouping of near-duplicates and email threads allows attorneys to skip redundant data, while focusing exclusively on the unique information in each document. By enhancing the "findability" of data, Equivio reduces the risk of missing key information. The Equivio groupings also ensure similar documents are treated consistently, while enhancing review productivity and helping litigators meet tight deadlines.

"We are delighted that IKON has chosen to adopt Equivio's technology," said Amir Milo, CEO of Equivio. "With its pre-eminent client base and market position, IKON understands the demanding requirements from technologies in high-performance document management environments. The adoption of Equivio's technology is helping IKON's litigation clients address the ever-increasing volumes and complexity of electronic discovery and review."
