LexisNexis Releases Relavint Desktop 2.0

Oct 17, 2006

LexisNexis Risk & Information Analytics Group, a provider in enabling government agencies to transform data into decisions, has announced the release of Version 2.0 of its Relavint Desktop visual link analysis solution. Relavint Desktop is a software application based on the LexisNexis Relavint visual link analysis technology currently available to more than 6,000 government and law enforcement agencies as part of the LexisNexis Accurint for Law Enforcement (LE) and Accurint for Law Enforcement Plus (LE Plus) Investigative Solutions that enables users to uncover linkages between suspects and their associated addresses, assets, and accomplices.

Relavint Desktop extends the link analysis capabilities previously only available to subscribers of Accurint LE and Accurint LE Plus to investigators and intelligence analysts. The free software download is a standalone application that enables users to draw, save, and edit visual link charts containing case information and share them with their colleagues, even if those colleagues are not users of LexisNexis Investigative Solutions. Users can leverage Relavint Desktop's layout display, tagging, image importation, and entity icon library features. With the addition of a powerful "plug-in" feature, Relavint Desktop 2.0's drawing and editing capabilities can be extended to enable customers to directly search and access live data from Accurint.

In addition, through LexisNexis Expert Services, the software is configurable to automatically incorporate, display, and link customers' internal data sets along with external reference data from the LexisNexis catalog of information. Version 2.0 also enables users to integrate Relavint link charts and their associated data with other third-party link analysis tools.
