Comprehensive Document Management

2018-11-10

Relativity is comprehensive and effective for litigation document management.

Pros

The granularity of the search function is particularly useful.

Cons

The learning curve is a bit steep, but that’s to be expected of something with so much functionality.

Biggest Player in the Game, with good Reason!

2019-12-09

Sadly, the UI leaves a lot to be desired as its pretty clunky to review with.

Pros

Additionally, the ability to quickly move and change document coding tags is fantastic. The search engine on it is second to none, and your key terms are highlighted within the document.

Cons

This is clunky software that shows its age. The UI for review is slow and can be difficult to work with, and there aren't a lot of great options for batch processing.

Best e-Discovery Software Possible

2018-08-06

Numerous documents from either party believed to be relevant are uploaded to a server.

Pros

All documents on the database can be searched through any combination of Relativity's search matrices.

Cons

Given that so much of the back-end of the Relativity website is perfect, I would have to say the design of the user-interface was one of the features I liked least about the program.

Good for E-Discovery projects

2018-06-07

Pros

I like using the keyword search feature and I believe the layout of the software is visually appealing.

Cons

As well, it sometimes is a bit difficult to search within the document, as we have asked for assistance from a tech expert to help out.

Best in Class for Legal Document Review

2018-11-13

This is the gold standard for document review.

Pros

When a search is well-designed then you'll be able to move through a batch of documents in almost no time flat.

Cons

Also, it is liable to crash your browser on particularly long and large documents.

Relativity Strong Enough

2019-01-09

Managing large document productions in legal cases where electronic discovery is needed.

Pros

I like the ease of use of this software and how it is intuitive and allows you to complete large document reviews efficiently and economically.

Cons

In comparison to other solutions on the market, Relativity may seem expensive but in reality once you get to use it you realize that you get what you pay for and Relativity provides efficiency and great customer support.

It's just okay, probably not worth the exorbitant costs

2018-02-27

If you'll need to be able to narrow down your search more so you can jump to places within the document where your keyword search appears, have a tech assist set it up for your keywords right away.

Pros

It can quickly narrow down keyword searches to return documents with the keyword in them.

Cons

It should just automatically be part of the software.

Industry standard for document review software for good reason.

2017-06-16

It's a solid and simple way to do ediscovery and other document reviews.

Pros

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.

Cons

When the software is buggy it can be a real slog however. This has rarely been an issue in my experience but it has happened. And when it has happened the crashing was seemingly across the platform for users in multiple locations. I'd say that it's unlikely that it was a lack of adequate hardware supporting it because this was at a major corporation that hosts reviews frequently and in a very large scale.

Pass or Fail based on the Administrator

2018-10-26

Pros

Multiple databases, document lists and review panels can be created for a single matter.

Cons

If a panel or view is not set up properly, it can cause endless problems for the actual review - simple tasks generate errors causing lost productivity.

Relativity Review

Overall I enjoy using Relativity. My experience has been positive and it has made e-discovery work enjoyable.

Pros

The software is easy to use and provides various features such as highlighting and an interactive search panel that make analyzing and coding complex legal documents more efficient and stream-lined.

Cons

This becomes frustrating when trying to code a certain number of documents per hour.

Nextpoint >>> Relativity

2019-11-11

But they are pricing themselves out of our clients' market now with other more-affordable options like Nextpoint showing up on the scene.

Pros

The software basically allows you to customize every space to fit whatever needs you have for a particular document review.

Cons

My least favorite thing about this software is the exorbitant price (licensing fees are very high).

Using for our larger document review platforms.

2017-06-12

Pros

Ease of use, variety of functions and features available, variety of third-party add-on features available, such as, Veritone.

Cons

It's very very very very difficult to even think of any cons whatsoever to Relativity. Perhaps users license fees would be a con.

Relativity is a user-friendly e-discovery platform and one of the best that I have used during years of document review.

2018-04-06

Pros

One of my favorite components of Relativity is the ability for a user to copy coding from the previous document. It is also very easy to check batches in and out and the coding fields are visually easy to access.

Cons

Like all e-discovery platforms, Relativity is sometimes really slow to load documents. In addition, I don't like that you cannot save comments while still in the process of reviewing a document.
