Reviews (1-25 of 39)
- Predictive analysis on document sets to discover defensible bulk coding of thousands of similar documents with very high accuracy and confidence.
- Easy to use filters and data visualizations to help manage overwhelming amounts of data.
- Easy to use search features, with more robust search syntax than other systems.
- Easy to manage batched review stages, and customize any possible review layout or coding imaginable.
- DISCO is not cheap... When compared to some systems it appears overly expensive.
- If it were less expensive, more clients would feel comfortable with the cost.
- The value in DISCO is hidden, so the GB/Mo. cost appears inflated.
For extremely large matters, the cost structure for DISCO is substantial- and we have clients who don't like the large monthly costs. I frequently see the value lost due to inefficiencies with other e-discovery systems, but that is impossible to quantify.
- DISCO has allowed our firm to perform in-house reviews for everything except the largest and time-sensitive document reviews.
- Utilizing DISCO AI we have been able to utilize our firm review resources on important documents, instead of generic or non-responsive documents.
- Utilizing the data analysis and visualizations in DISCO we have been able to easily show gaps in received productions and demand further discovery.
- Ability to run reports.
- Managing review stages.
- Ability to choose fields from All meta data report.
- Ability to generate report with document comments without all meta data report.
- Ability to run longer searches with more parameters.
- Improved learning on case-specific issues.
- Improved accuracy with deposition preparation.
- Improved speed with review stage management.
- Easy to search for relevant information.
- Easy to screen irrelevant data from large document collections.
- Easy to organize data by issues of practical importance to your case.
- Easy to cost-effectively resolve complex ediscovery challenges.
- Terrific customer service.
- Very helpful on-line help features.
- Strong analytical tools.
- Need an easier way to track when a document did not receive coding review for all issues (i.e., when issues where added later on in the coding process--need to be alerted to go back and capture the additional issues to be coded).
- Cost-effectiveness has made us return to DISCO again and again.
- Outstanding functionality has greatly improved litigation success.
- Superior data analytics have increased productivity.
- Greater control over litigation spend.
- Better strategic partnership with outside counsel.
- Increased technical competency within the team.
We've moved to DISCO from Summation because it is user friendly, convenient and efficient.
- It is very efficient with search terms.
- The support staff is knowledgeable.
- Access is always good working remote.
- The tagging feature - I'd like to be able to mass tag documents without putting them in folders first.
- It has cut my review time on mass e-mails prior to production.
- Increased speed in document reviews.
- Lower costs and higher efficiency due to speed of review.
- Ease of document review due to filtering options.
- Self-management of key functions. Ingests can be handled by users, as well as production sets. No need to wait on discovery vendors.
- Simple, yet powerful, search syntax. It uses a familiar Boolean search syntax, and can search a wide variety of metadata fields easily.
- It is fast. Not quick; outright fast. It blows away every other platform on the market. Review times are cut in half, and searches are lightning quick.
- Web-based. Allows for multiple logins by one user at a time. If you are in the middle of a review, but see something else you want to look up, simply open a new tab in the browser, and go.
- Additional ways to refine searches. If I have tagged all documents containing "phrase x," and then hit the family inclusion button, it expands the number of responsive documents. This is fine. But if I want to see those additional family documents to see if it changes the type of tag or category I need to assign, that is not easily done.
- Audits of user actions. I can audit a single document for what actions were performed by specific reviewers. But if I want to pull all actions for a group of reviewers, for a specific set of documents, there are no good solutions.
- More customization of export document lists. I would like to be able to easily customize the categories of metadata that are exported. Deep dives into opposing party data sometimes requires looking at very specific metadata fields. When it is exported to excel, the sort options make this easier. But I don't want to hide 30 columns to make that happen.
- The ability to customize the document view screen. If I want to minimize or hide all the panels on the left, I want that screen space back. Or, I would like to only have the metadata pane, the conversation pane, and the tagging pane on one side, and hide the rest. This should be an option.
- Hovering for more information is broken. It routinely will move to different spots, and sometimes out of view (i.e., below the bottom of the browser screen).
- Metadata pane. If there are multiple paths, and you click it to see the hidden paths, it truncates the paths so you can't see the whole thing.
- Document notes. If there are notes, you should be able to see them without having to click the "view/edit note."
If you don't have a large volume of data, then you don't really need a discovery platform, and can self-review. However, even with small data sets, it can be much easier to open a new matter, ingest, and the run a production then to do it natively. There is no good option for converting large amounts of email files to pdf or tiff and then bates stamping.
- It saves money by saving time. I can review hundreds of thousands of files in a fraction of the time than with other platforms.
- It allows for meaningful review of large data sets when opposing parties try to data dump, or the case is document intensive.
- Saved money by keeping document review-in house.
- Increased overall speed of review.
- Provides keyword and custodian search capability.
- Provides metadata.
- Helps organize documents in clear format.
- It would be helpful to have the capability to send a doc directly to the managing attorney because they don't always want to go into a database.
- Saved $ by not outsourcing overseas.
- Allows filtering of documents by multiple and useful categories
- User friendly interface
- Searching for particular documents or categories of documents is much easier that in other platforms I have used
- I actually have no suggestions. I really like the platform.
- Makes searching for categories of documents for production, deposition preparation, exhibits for motions etc. much more efficient
- Efficient e-discovery tool.
- Not cost effective.
- Easy functionality
- Easy to coordinate teams among different firms
- Support should be free/easy/available to everyone
The staff at DISCO was available to help on an on-demand basis. I was impressed with them being able to speak the language of litigation versus the other vendors I sometimes deal with who have only an IT focus.
- We have had only the one case.
- Had we used DISCO upfront, we might have saved significant paralegal hours.
- Future use will likely produce much higher efficiency rates.
- It is easily used for producing documents. I appreciate how easy it is to create load files to provide to opposing counsel.
- DISCO's support team is the best in the business, bar none. I always feel free to call them about any concerns or problems I am having. I know that they will go the distance to ensure that my questions are answered and my concerns are assuaged. Even after hours, I have been able to get answers to my questions. Most importantly, their support staff is incredibly helpful and caring people, which is immediately apparent during the phone calls.
- DISCO also makes it very easy to set up a specific document review stage, tailored just as I need it. I appreciate the ability to tag documents per my requirements, to write privilege notes, to redact passages quickly, etc. The fact that this tailored document review staging is all so easy to set up speaks to how great a program DISCO is.
- I love how, in the main "Search and Review' window, to my left, I can have the filters. This is so handy and time-saving! I can't count the times that I have chosen documents based upon specific recipients/senders, or narrowed down my search by choosing "inclusive emails only."
- Perhaps this is my ignorance, but when I'm in the main "Search and Review" window and want to choose specific documents from here to, say, batch print, I have to click the grey square to the left of the document one by one, instead of clicking a grey square on top of the window that would automatically choose all the documents showing in that window, and then deselect the ones I don't want.
- I know this is a safety feature, but sometimes it would be nice to be able to change certain features of documents myself instead of asking DISCO support team to do so, i.e., changing the custodian of specific documents.
- Instead of choosing the "copy format from a previous production" that automatically changes a Bates prefix for you that you may not want, maybe a feature where you have preset choices of metadata and confidentiality to apply to productions without affecting a chosen Bates prefix.
- I'm not involved on the money end, so any answer as to money saved is purely speculative.
- All I know is that clients are satisfied with the outcomes of our trials. The organization and efficiency of DISCO support this.
- DISCO has a very easy to use review interface. This is key because attorneys and staff new to DISCO can begin reviewing documents with little to no training, which speeds up the review process and ultimately saves our clients money.
- DISCO has a beneficial "Review Stages" system that provides for the fast and efficient assignment of documents for attorneys/paralegals to review. It has features that permit the senior attorney to see how fast people are reviewing documents and estimates how long it will take for the review to be completed.
- One of my favorite features is the search visualization feature. The feature provides a birds-eye view of the data set-what email addresses appear most frequently, the frequency of communications, etc. This information can be used in turn to craft more effective search terms and parameters.
- Currently, DISCO is not compatible with timeline databases such as CaseMap or TimeMap. Such integration would go a long way in ease of use.
- There is no easy way to create a timeline or fact chronology in DISCO. The exhibit function should be tweaked to provide for such functionality.
- DISCO does not permit a client to do a partial review on the front end so that only certain data gets fully processed and gets charged. That would help provide better value to clients.
- We have saved our clients money given the unlimited licenses and no fees to process or produce a date.
- Using the AI function, we have been able to handle large document reviews with less staff than anticipated.
- DISCO's billing department is sometimes a bit too aggressive and uneven in their bills and notices for payment.
- DISCO software is easy to use for even the most entry-level document reviewer. All one needs to know how to do is browse web pages.
- DISCO has a good amount of organizational functionality that allows us to identify key documents and custodians to improve efficiency in our early-stage document review process. We can target dates, topics, and specific custodians with ease using the visual organization tools without requiring knowledge of building text-based searches.
- The DISCO project support team is responsive, and projects can usually be started within hours of the initial opening request. The team is always willing to do training as users become more advanced and interested in exploring deeper functionality of the tool.
- In my previous experience, I have found that coding may not be recorded when a user is going extremely fast through documents.
- Right now, at least, we do not appear to have the ability to independently upload load files and productions we received from other parties.
- The more complex and useful tools are somewhat difficult to locate and learn to use without assistance from project support team members.
- The text searching can be difficult to use, especially when trying to search for exclusion rather than the inclusion of documents based on the searches.
- The folder system is not intuitive. Parent folders include all documents within sub-folders, even when those sub-folders are designed to exclude documents. This is likely a unique problem than can be resolved using different procedures, though.
- We have definitely saved time and money by using DISCO.
- DISCO also allows us to keep billing in-house rather than passing on costs. Ultimately, DISCO software has made discovery more cost-effective for clients while also increasing revenue for the firm.
- DISCO is extremely intuitive and easy to learn for anyone.
- DISCO's pricing is simple and straightforward, with no hidden charges.
- There is just one platform for loading, reviewing, and production of documents. No separate applications are necessary.
- If you haven't checked out DISCO lately, I urge you to do so. When I first started using DISCO, features and flexibility were limited for end users. This is no longer the case; DISCO listens to input from users and puts it into action.
- DISCO has been a massive timesaver in terms of getting users up to speed. Also, during document reviews because of its ease of use.
- DISCO also saves time for loading documents, production of documents, and narrowing down the universe of documents.
- peace of mind, knowing it allows me to better service clients
- saved huge amount of time by importing documents in native format and making searchable
- Quick customer service whenever issues arise
- Fairly intuitive to use the software and doesn't require a lot of teaching to use
- Good searching capabilities and quick tagging structures
- Missing functionality for being able to copy and paste text in the view function
- Not widespread usage so when trying to get buy-in from other attorneys they don't have experience with the platform
- Sometimes very slow and takes a long time for documents to load
- The financial cost to the firm has been high, especially as we've been paying overages.
- Easier to locate documents and make better decisions on selecting documents to use in the case.
- The platform is very intuitive and user-friendly and makes creating searches much easier. There is an option of creating Boolean search terms or the much easier Search Builder that DISCO has created.
- Our office appreciates being able to create folders and save specific documents to them. Although you can accomplish the same result through saved searches, the folders make it easier for some attorneys to access the information they need much easier than creating searches.
- The document review pane is also extremely helpful in that it provides all of the information pertinent to that document (and its family) in one view. I like that the search term hits are highlighted in the document view and the reviewer can "jump" to each hit.
- On a couple of occasions, I submitted a request for assistance from the technical support staff but the system had not registered my request. Luckily, I was not working on a document production deadline so the time delay was not ultimately a big issue.
- I would like to be able to create and save the specifics to a new production ahead of my actual production deadline, thus saving me time at the very end of the review when time is usually short.
- I appreciate that DISCO allows for unlimited users and the pricing structure is uncomplicated.
- Document review platform.
- Customer service/responsiveness.
- Service flexibility to meet changing needs.
- DISCO could simplify and expedite the process for putting a project on ice, or terminating it altogether.
- The overall business impact of DISCO has been positive - Our discovery practice has become much more efficient and cost-effective for clients.
- Very good text recognition for searching.
- Metadata information is presented in a format that makes it easier to understand who and where the documents came from.
- Ability to tag documents with many/various terms and collections.
- Batch Printing can be easier if there was a quicker/easier way to pick and choose many documents within a collection.
- Try to find a way to retain confidentiality designations for documents when ingesting from a production.
- DISCO makes it easier for our Team members in different offices across the U.S. to coordinate document reviews for various aspects of litigations, from discovery to depositino .
- Extremely user-friendly. Easy to figure out how to work things.
- Very fast. Compared to other platforms, the delay is minimal.
- A clean, usable interface that makes it easy to read documents.
- Nothing I can think of at this time. The actual reviewers (since I'm supervising them) may have more specific feedback.
- Saved money and time on investigations
- Increased speed in starting an investigation because the initial setup time compares favorably to competitors
- Simple interface - This is key because many users can't be bogged down trying to navigate through complex platforms. DISCO makes it easier to users of all levels to review, cull and produce information.
- Speed - The platform is much faster than alternative platforms. The speed significantly reduces review times making for a more efficient review.
- No hidden costs. It's nice to easily understand the costs of a platform and present it to clients.
- I wish DISCO had more robust analytics. Not so much predictive coding but the ability to review documents using concepts/phrases.
- I think DISCO should reduce the monthly minimum. By having such a high monthly minimum price you end up excluding potential clients.
- Cost savings on large discovery matters.
- Efficiency with reviews.
- Increased speed.
- Better history of searches.
- Ease of finding documents.
