The Power of Envize™ Plus Relativity Delivers & Keeps Delivering Big

Summary

When we last covered the incredible power that Envize™ brings to Relativity, we wrote about a federal trade secrets case where Envize helped a defense firm deal with issues resulting from an overly-large collection created by overly-broad search terms; the 7,500 hours required to review the 485,000 documents wasn’t possible within the case budget and timeline. And that was on just one-third of the full document set that had been collected at that point.

Envize helped the firm meet deadlines and stay under budget without sacrificing its Relativity review workflow. In fact, Envize saved the client nearly $517,000 by allowing one associate to spend less than 20 hours reviewing documents for a training set. Then, in fewer than two more hours, Envize was able to generate a fully defensible set of 24,000 potentially relevant documents that was then confirmed by another couple of hours of QC review.

Update

We ended our first report on this case with a promise that as the rest of the documents come in, those already impressive savings would grow even greater as it leverages the work already done. And, now as the case has continued, we have kept that promise in a big way. With another big batch of documents collected and more custodians added, the savings for the law firm and its client is now nearly $600,000. The firm continues to find potentially relevant documents in the data sets being added from new custodians – more than 45,000 so far now – but the hours needed for review work are still less than 30 hours total. And this is still the work of just one associate, who has now become the expert resource on the facts of the case for the firm and the client as a result – instead of taking that knowledge with him out the door.

Results & Next Steps

The case is still not done, but we have no doubts that the benefits of Envize will keep delivering. In fact, the 88% stability rating that had been achieved while eliminating more than 450,000 non-relevant documents in the first set is now up to an incredible 92%. That means that the next document sets can be reviewed even faster, with even more accuracy. Envize only gets smarter as you use it – imagine how great it would be if all of your technology could work so well!


The Proof

Finally, as we also mentioned earlier, none of these amazing results would be worthwhile if we couldn’t back them up with solid, presentable proof that would make the review results defensible in court. For this reason, Envize provides comprehensive visual reports on the training, stability and statistics in an easy-to-understand format that any judge – even one with limited computer skills - can understand.

The client continues to see savings, nearly $600,000 by integrating Envize™ directly into Relativity.
