Review, Redact and Produce Native Excel Files with XLerator

Evolver Legal Services announces the release of ‘XLerator’, a web-based tool used for redacting and producing Excel files natively.


Reston, VA – September 9, 2014 – Evolver Legal Services, an eDiscovery and managed services provider, today announced the availability of ‘XLerator’, their web-based tool for managing Excel files. XLerator allows reviewers to redact privileged and confidential information from Excel files and produce them natively.


XLerator provides a highly efficient, alternative solution to the current industry process of redacting Excel files as images, a process that fails to provide an accurate depiction of the information contained in a native file, and may not comply with production requirements between parties.


“Innovation and continuous process improvement are two core values at Evolver. We incentivize our employees to identify opportunity and develop solutions that deliver added value for our clients,” said Mike O’Kane, CEO at Evolver. “XLerator is another example where a creative application of technology to an existing process provides our legal services clients a more efficient method for managing their Excel data.”
