Discovery Attender for Notes Offers South African Law Firms and Legal Teams the Ability to Search

Written by 
{pp}Hampton Solutions, South Africa Distributor of Sherpa Software today announced the latest release of Discovery Attender for Notes version 6.4c. The latest release provides a Desktop installation option that allows the discovery of content within .NSF files without a Domino server. Specifically developed for law firms and other parties operating outside of the Notes environment, the Desktop option allows searching without the need to install all of the specialized Notes components.

Law Firms are often handed .NSF files from clients in response to litigation or other legal matters, but typically lack the hardware and technical expertise to properly search them. The new Desktop installation of Discovery Attender bypasses the costly and cumbersome process of setting up an in-house Notes domain, while providing extensive e-discovery functionality such as content retrieval, culling and annotation that was previously only available with a server installation. In addition, users can easily create and execute custom searches directly from their desktops.

"The latest version of Discovery Attender breaks new ground by providing the full Discovery Attender search functionality in a desktop version,” says Harvey Coblin, Product Manager at Sherpa Software. “This addresses a huge requirement in the industry and opens up the product for use by those that do not have Domino expertise or access to an in-house Notes server."

Discovery Attender for Notes is a search and discovery tool designed to automate investigative tasks in Domino server databases, instant message logs and common file storage areas. Discovery Attender assists IT, Litigation Support and Legal Teams in complying with the new amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) and effectively gathers and produces responsive electrically stored information (ESI) in a timely, defensible manner.
