An “eDJ Brief” is our short write up of biannual free product briefings that eDJ will do for any product that may impact the markets we cover. We have found that forcing a provider to speed demo their product in half an hour generally makes them get to their differentiators. The eDJ Brief is meant to help you understand where the product fits and our top take-aways rather than a traditional product review.

Company: Vound LLC – www.Vound-software.comeDJ Profile

Offering: Intella product line including Intella Pro, TEAM and Connect – eDJ Offering Profile

Briefing by: Peter Mercer, CTO                

Date: 1/24/2014

Overview: Intella Pro aims to cover the market gap between forensic collection and high performance processing engines with implementation options that cover desktop to team web-server for $5-25k. Although Intella customers are reportedly using the system on live data sources, it is currently designed to process collected ESI and forensic containers for fast ECA, filtering, image conversion and production. Like many products with forensic software roots, Vound’s primary customer base are the big consulting firms, law enforcement, government and some biglaw firms with heavy international litigation. The Intella suite has a relatively intuitive user interface and Vound focuses on adoption usability as a prime differentiator for customers used to relatively complicated forensic analysis software. Vound was founded in 2008 and is based in Australia, yet another market entry from down under.
