QC stands for Quality Control. That’s the basic idea behind them: we want to alert you to things in your data that might’ve traditionally gone unnoticed and that may or may not be important to your matter.
The QC Tag tells you things like:
How many potentially privileged emails were detected?
How many documents were from a database upload?
How many documents have a duplicate?
What if a person was sending privileged emails with PDF attachments to a law firm that the attachments themselves contained non-searchable attachments, like photos or scanned documents? And what if those non-searchable attachments were critical documents to your case?
With Logikcull, you’d be able to answer that question. This is just one example out of thousands where you’d want to leverage QC Tags to know more about your data.
If you're curious what each QC Tag means, simply hover over the name in the filter and the tooltip box will tell you.
