Cloud-based eDiscovery software for data analysis & review

4.09/5 (33 reviews)

Relativity overview

Relativity is an electronic discovery, or "eDiscovery" platform that targets organizations charged with managing and reviewing large quantities of data. Deployed typically as part of the issue identification processes within corporate litigation, internal investigations, governmental and compliance requests, the software helps to connect global users. The single solution, that can be installed on-premise and/or hosted in the cloud, offers an online community of Relativity customers, versatile training resources and an API-powered "App Hub" offering custom application extensions.

Relativity's complete set of seamlessly integrated tools claims to tackle every phase of an eDiscovery project, including search, analytic, machine learning and visualization capabilities. With Legal Hold users can create repeatable processes when analyzing and synthesizing case facts for legal hold issuing, while Early Case Assessment focuses investigation data to gain insights and assess risks. Processing is handled in-house with a data processing engine that promises metadata / container extraction and domain parsing, while feeding back data source metrics and ensuring complex searches aren't delayed. Document review and production is assisted by workflow creation tools, along with the ability to conduct review and coding duties remotely via a secured mobile app for iPad.

Best e-Discovery Software Possible

My business' legal department has been utilizing Relativity for e-Discovery document review. Numerous documents from either party believed to be relevant are uploaded to a server. From that point, administrators access Relativity and can set up searches for specific keywords, individuals, dates, issues, etc., and then save these searches to be accessed later. Searches of specific information by keyword and date allowed attorneys to divvy up the searches to a manageable amount and was crucial in ensuring the department got through the documents necessary in order to prepare for upcoming depositions. Relativity allowed lawyers to comb through millions of emails, each one getting tagged for a specific issue as it pertained to the case. When the department had finished, it was interesting to use Relativity and see which aspects of the case we had found the most evidence to win, which aspects were weak, and which individuals would be best to depose. Relativity allows for efficient and thorough document review. All documents on the database can be searched through any combination of Relativity's search matrices. Searches can easily be saved, copied, edited, and saved again. As well, it is easy to organize these saved searches into categories, each referring to a specific individual or a specific aspect of the search. This allows for users to easily pull exactly the documents that are specific to their needs. While every feature could prove useful in a specific circumstance, I found myself mainly utilizing two: the family tab and the email-threading tab. The family tab indicates that their are emails attached to the one you are currently looking at. Similarly, the email-threading tab allows one to visualize the chain of emails, allowing for the entire thread to be edited all at once, rather than individually.

Ediscovery is made simpler with Relativity. The processing of data into Relativity can be done through either Relativity's software or other processing engines. This is an excellent tool to organize case files, legal research, and paper discovery.The processing and review functions are superb and can be customized to any type of matter or workflow. THere are a variety of built in tools that allow data to be viewed at the macro or micro level, depending on your needs. With as little as 20 minutes of training any lawyer or paralegal can easily learn how the system works, apply substantive coding and redactions.

Industry standard for document review software for good reason.

It's a solid and simple way to do ediscovery and other document reviews.It's a generally stable review environment with a simple interface and yet a lot of functionality. The software seems to dominate the market as far as I've been exposed because of its ease of use. But it's also easy to learn initially. And as one progresses with more complex reviewing, quality control, and batching needs, the software can keep up while still providing the simple interface.

This is the gold standard for document review. Nothing else comes close.This is, in general, a fast program. When a search is well-designed then you'll be able to move through a batch of documents in almost no time flat. Also, it's browser and "cloud" based - you don't need any local installations.

Easy to learn document review platform. Coding panels can be as simple or as complex as desired. Multiple databases, document lists and review panels can be created for a single matter.
