Unitization or Logical Document Determination (LDD) is the process by which large groups of images are analyzed for their content and broken down into logical boundaries. Our LDD process is most effectively performed on document collections that have been scanned together with only physical boundaries noted. In addition to creating document breaks, we establish family relationships and/or attachment ranges. For example, an email with several attachments or an agreement with appendices would be unitized as one family unit.
Adding our LDD services to your workflow offers several advantages:
- Reduced scanning preparation time increases productivity and profitability of imaging operations
- Rolling deliveries of LDD keep pace with scanning for nonstop deliveries to your client (Our daily capacity is 100,000 images per day)
- Unitization rules can be tailored to for specific projects and/or document collections to yield effective results
- Existing metadata and coding can be applied to revised boundaries for improved search accuracy
Establishing logical boundaries through effective unitization is crucial in understanding why a document was sent, to whom it was sent, and with what other relevant documents was it sent. Breaking large documents down into logical parts puts relevant information in your review team’s hands faster.
We have developed a distributed processing model with our expert LDD and Legal Coding teams working in tandem through project completion. Throughout the project, our coding team will report potential LDD errors and make recommendations for proper unitization. Before delivery, all unitization projects undergo a 100% page-for-page QC and random sampling to ensure accuracy.
By leveraging our Foreign Language Translation capabilities, unitization can also be performed on documents in common foreign languages.
