There are no hidden fees or additional licenses required to convert

Acumen produces over a hundred thousand native files in seconds
and exports these with files names containing bates numbers in just
minutes, depending on the destination system file format. Currently
Acumen's export for 100,000+ files to Concordance takes under 2
For image productions, Acumen users may export files as single page
or multi-page TIFF, PDF, or for IPro, Introspect, or Opticon viewers.
For both image and native productions, choose to export load files
for Concordance, Introspect, or delimited files (comma, pipe, tab,
or accent) for loading into Summation or other tools. Optionally
export document metadata, attributes, designations (codes), and
searchable extracted text. Acumen’s production set wizard
provides the flexibility to pick exactly which image format, load
file format, and metadata fields you produce. Pinpoint precisely
which files you will produce with powerful status, designation,
and metadata filters.
Production turnaround time varies based on the file types in the
production set. Acumen production processes may be distributed among
multiple servers to increase throughput. Here are benchmark production
rates for tiffed pages per hour by file type per server (using HP
Bates numbers are assigned at production time. The case admin controls
the length, prefix and starting Bates number for each production
set, with helpful insight from the production wizard about the most
recently used Bates number for a given case. Image productions are
branded with a Bates number and other fields of the case admin’s
choice. Native productions include the Bates number in the file
name. The ‘renumber’ function in Acumen accommodates
quickly re-branding a Bates number onto image productions in the
event that documents must be added or removed from the production
set at the last minute.
Acumen manages data as XML. This allows data to flow intelligently
through the e-discovery lifecycle, including the flexibility of
exporting Acumen data as XML.
