E-DISCOVERY solution incorporates FineReader Engine 11

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 18, 2016) - ABBYY®, a leading provider of technologies and solutions to action information, today announced a partnership with Japan's FRONTEO, Inc. in order to enhance the extraction capabilities of the Lit i View E-DISCOVERY using ABBYY's FineReader Engine 11.

The Lit i View E-DISCOVERY solution simplifies the burden of cross-border litigation with its top-notch reliability and speed. FineReader Engine 11 contributes highly sophisticated multilingual recognition, extraction and conversion technologies to the process. This results in the ability to quickly identify important information from legal corporate electronic data with a high level of accuracy. This data can then be used during the discovery process for the processing and production of evidence as well as the predictive auditing associated with various types of litigation cases, including civil, product liability, patent infringement and antitrust cases.

"ABBYY's time-tested technology offers superior flexibility that can be applied to both cloud and on-premise applications, covering the configurations most demanded by legal firms around the globe," said Hideki Takeda, CTO director of Behavior Informatics Laboratories at FRONTEO, Inc.
