IGC Announces Results of Redaction Survey at LegalTech NY '12

65% of Respondents Were Law Firms, Over 25% Still Redacting Manually, 86% Preferred Electronic Redaction for Professional Appearance

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Jan 30, 2012) - At LegalTech NY today, Informative Graphics Corporation (IGC) announces the results of its Redaction Survey, which aimed to benchmark user adoption and attitudes toward electronic redaction software. Nearly 65% of the survey respondents were from law firms, clearly demonstrating the importance and prevalence of redaction in the legal industry.

Over 25% of participants were still doing redaction manually, with markers or redaction tape, 32% were redacting electronically, and nearly 38% were using a combined approach with paper-based and software-driven redaction.

Of respondents that had electronic tools, 86.3% of them preferred electronic redaction for its professional look, while 79.5% preferred it because it saved them time. 70.4% of participants thought their office would benefit from electronic redaction because of its efficiency, environmental friendliness and its faster, more accurate completion of redaction projects.

Andy Lowe, IGC Product Manager for Redact-It, said, "We would like to thank everyone that participated in the Redaction Survey; the feedback we received on the usage and needs of electronic redaction users was very valuable. IGC strives to create quality products that are truly useful and this survey has given us insight into what is most important to electronic redaction users today."

The survey results can be viewed on and at LegalTech New York '12 at IGC's booth (#2401).
