building upon the foundations of an already established system. It provides a unique
approach to automated litigation support in document-intensive cases by providing
structured case organization and management solutions.
eReview offers useful time and cost saving tools for organizing, reviewing,

with the help of the FileControl converter. These documents are then stored in the
system's folder hierarchy for permanent storage.
FileControl’s eReview stores, categorizes, maintains and retrieves searchable
databases that locate essential documents easily. It provides a convenient way to
categorize and store native files within the application. Advanced search options
