Eliminate the Obvious: Leverage EDD Processing

Our Ascent eDiscovery processing experts work with your in-house team to define, refine, and execute Electronic eDiscovery Processing strategies that return accurate and comprehensive results.

Using a consultive approach, the Ascent eDiscovery team works with you to develop and execute processing strategies that reduce your review burden by analyzing the metadata of electronically stored information (ESI) to identify documents that may be discoverable while simultaneously eliminating content that is not subject to review.

Using the processing solutions within Ipro’s “discovery ][ Enterprise” (formerly Ecapture), the Ascent eDiscovery team applies search criteria specific to your project requirements. These include keywords, phrases & concepts, date ranges, custodian names, and document type information to identify potentially relevant documents.  And, if you need to meet a tight deadline, processing can be done on a rolling basis so end users can begin analyzing and reviewing large volumes of ESI for potentially relevant documents hours after it is received by the Ascent eDiscovery team.


Ascent eDiscovery Processing services include:

  • Ingestion, normalization, and indexing of “raw” data
  • De-NISTing of data and removal of non-user system files
  • Extraction of metadata and text
  • Culling of documents using client-specific search terms, date ranges, file types, etc.
  • Deduplication of documents on global or custodial levels
  • Identification of foreign language documents and content
  • OCR and image documents, create load files
  • Generation of search term hit reports based on client-defined criteria
  • Uploading of processed documents to Early Case Assessment (ECA) or document review databases

“Self-Service” Processing

The Ascent eDiscovery environment includes a “Self-Service” portal that enables authorized users to upload .zip files to the review platform where documents are processed according to pre-defined requirements and automatically loaded into a new or existing project database where they can be accessed and reviewed within minutes.
