Microsoft Excel review has been a painstaking manual effort, an undisputed frustration, and a creator of countless days/weeks of work.



Three years ago, Evolver eliminated that timeworn process with XLerator. It’s a high tech, automated tool to review, redact, and produce native Excels. In 2017, we expanded XLerator’s innovation by integrating it with Relativity.  Additionally, XLerator is available as a standalone product and SaaS.



What is XLerator?

XLerator is a web-based tool that reduces the burdensome process of applying manual redactions through deduplication and other automated features and allows the reviewer to not only redact native Excels but also produce native Excels (no more TIFFS).

Key features we will demonstrate & discuss in this native Excel redaction tool:

  • Intuitive User Interface
  • Deduplication during ingestion
  • Automated redactions applied to duplicates
  • Various Types of Automated Redactions

    • Global
    • Bulk/Mass – RECENTLY ADDED
