Fios, Nexidia Announce E-Discovery Partnership

Wednesday, November 1, 2006 - 01:00

Fios Inc., a leading electronic discovery services provider, and Nexidia, a provider of phonetic-based technology for audio search, have announced a strategic partnership designed to help clients more effectively and efficiently review and analyze electronic audio files as part of discovery.

The two companies are extending Nexidia's phonetic audio search technologies with Fios' extensive electronic discovery services to provide clients with an innovative and cost-effective approach to manage complex litigation and regulatory compliance matters.

Nexidia's technology allows for highly scalable audio search by identifying phoneme (speech) patterns that provide higher accuracy than dictionary dependent, speech-to-text based audio search, manual transcription, or labor-intensive listening. This audio technology, combined with Fios' evidence collection, processing, review, production and project management services, delivers a defensible process for integrating audio files in complex e-discovery requests.
