Cull Me If You Can: Ten Exciting New Features + A Big Announcement

Cull Me If You Can: Ten Exciting New Features + A Big Announcement

On Tuesday, hundreds of legal, ops, and IT professionals joined us for Cull Me If You Can, Logikcull’s summer launch event. 

This time, we paid tribute to Spielberg’s classic movie — you guessed it, Catch Me If You Can — on its 20th anniversary with our co-founder and CEO, Andy Wilson, in full pilot regalia, captaining us through recent stats and trends across our more than 50,000 users, three crucial discovery challenges, and 10+ essential new features to overcome them with Logikcull.

You can watch the entire event below (it’s short, to the point, and, in our humble opinions, highly entertaining…) or keep reading for a quick recap of everything we covered:

An Explosion of Discovery Data Through the Lens of Defensibility

At Logikcull, we approach our mission of democratizing discovery through the lens of defensibility — which is to say, assuring that the process is secure, thorough, and unimpeachable. 

The problem, as ever, is the unyielding explosion of data. Just this year, 94 zettabytes of  information will be generated — a vast ocean of noise that creates a wide variety of challenges for security and defensibility. 

These are the three main ones:

  • Sensitive data is getting harder to protect, even when the consequences of not protecting it are more severe than ever. 
  • Dark data is on the rise. This includes data that you can’t find during your discovery process or that you have no easy way of interpreting. IBM estimates that 80% of all enterprise data is unsearchable and unstructured, which means that getting the full picture of your evidence has never been harder.
  • Bad actors have large volumes of data at their fingertips. In fact, one in four law firms has admitted to experiencing a data breach at some point, according to the most recent ABA tech survey, and more and more of those incidents are happening in the context of discovery. 

What are we doing to address these challenges? Read on…

Ten New Features to Make Your Discovery Process Faster and More Defensible

Upload-Only User Role

The new upload-only user role allows you to grant certain users permission to upload data to your project — and that’s it. Now you don’t have to worry about the many treacherous ways — unencrypted email, insecure Dropbox links, (gasp) FedEx — data makes its way to you. And not only do you keep your data more secure, but you also eliminate the costs and time associated with collecting information from clients, custodians, or other third parties.

You’ll also receive automatic email notifications every time a new data upload starts. From there, you can decide if you want to start processing your data right away, or if you just want to have it sit there until you’re ready to start reviewing. 

Check out how it works:

Deep Text Recognition (DTR)

Did you know that a fair percentage of your data contains images that are not recognizable by any OCR technology? Just think of any embedded images on PDFs or Power Point presentations with text on them, for example. Those images could contain potentially key information for discovery, and you’re likely not even looking at them today.

Deep Text Recognition (DTR) technology wipes out that problem by making the unsearchable searchable as it indexes text on any image file — no matter how difficult to read it might appear — to make your discovery process as defensible as it can possibly be.

This feature is coming soon. If you'd like access or to learn more, please contact sales@logikcull.com.

Global Redactions

One tool to redact them all... With global redactions, even your wildest redactions dreams come true.

Yes, you can apply project-wide redactions to as many words, expressions, or elements as you need. All at once.

Yes, you can also select a subset of documents and apply redactions to them in bulk. 

Yes, you can see at a glance how many documents will be affected by the redactions, and they will all be  tagged as “Has Redactions” once you apply them.

No, we’re not kidding.

Here’s how it works:

Global redactions are in early stages of development. If you'd like to become a beta tester or to learn more, please contact sales@logikcull.com.

Dashboard Tiles

When you’re an admin in Logikcull, you're usually managing several projects at the same time with multiple users in each of them. So, how do stay up-to-date with everything that’s going on in all your projects? 

In a pre-dashboard era, you’d look at your activity logs, the number of documents in your project, saved searches, etc. All data which is scattered across different places within the platform. 

But now, dashboard tiles turn the lights on for your accounts’ activity by allowing you to see at a glance any relevant data such as the number of active projects, the volume of data stored in your account, and the number users in each of your projects. 

The best part? You won’t even need to log into Logikcull to access all that info as we will spoon-feed it to you every day via email.

Legal Hold Attachments

Attachment issues are usually tricky to deal with — except when it comes to your legal hold notices. 

You can now make your legal holds notices clearer and more comprehensive by attaching any relevant document to your hold notification. See how:

Legal hold attachments are available now for paid and free plans.

Legal Hold Notices in Slack

When companies adopt Slack, email volume drops by 32% on average. Slack has become the main communications tool for most of our users and for most organizations out there, which means that common activities you’d perform earlier via email need to become available in Slack. And your legal hold notices are no exception.

With the new Logikcull Slack app, you’ll be able to issue a legal hold even faster and ensure your custodians receive the notice on the communications tool they use the most.

Logikcull GovCloud

For most of the government customers Logikcull supports, data security is their number one priority and the biggest of their concerns. 

To alleviate those and enable adherence to regulations like ITAR, FedRAMP, and DoD SRG, Logikcull is making available a separate instance of the platform in AWS GovCloud so you can have highly sensitive workloads run through Logikcull with ease and peace of mind.

Here’s a preview:

This feature will be available soon. If you'd like access or to learn more, please reach out to your account representative or contact sales@logikcull.com.

Slack Metadata Exports

Need to quickly understand the type of chat conversations you’re dealing with and share it with your peers?

You can now export any Slack metadata Logikcull captures, such as channel, conversation ID, or participant with the click of a button.

Here’s how:

This feature is now available for all Logikcull users.

Keyboard Shortcuts

With keyboard shortcuts, you won’t do anything new, but you’ll do everything faster.
