English term or phrase: electronic document discovery software
Hello everyone,

Even though the ATM automated routine cash handling tasks, the technology alone did not determine whether employ-ment of tellers grew or fell; economics mattered. New technology can increase demand for an occupation, offsetting putative job losses. Nor is this example exceptional:

• Barcode scanners reduced cashiers’ checkout times by 18–19 percent, but the number of cashiers has grown since scanners were widely deployed during the 1980s.

• Since the late 1990s, ***electronic document discovery software*** for legal proceedings has grown into a billion dollar business doing work done by paralegals, but the number of paralegals has grown robustly.

What kind of software is that? Does it help to search for legal information, or does it serve to prepare legal documents?

Thank you.
