Disco is used primarily by certain teams, or within certain cases where there is known to be a high volume of documents that will be collected or used. It provides for easier access and organization for these files. It also assists in production, quick research, and general storage for certain cases where the volume of documents would be a burden on our system.
  • Organizes documents
  • Assists in production of documents
  • Makes searching within database easier
  • Ordering documents into a specific manner
  • Quick review from document to document
  • Organizing one matter into separate sub-files
Disco is ideal for lawsuits with a large number of documents that need to be stored and searched. It assists in reviewing and producing these documents, and generally categorizing documents that are significant or not. It does not help as much for matters where there is relatively few documents or in trying to review all documents from a large grouping.

We engaged DISCO Ediscovery in a complex tort case where we represent 239 Plaintiffs in 5 related actions and numerous corporate defendants and insurance companies in order to more efficiently manage and locate documents vs. manually looking for them on our servers or within a document depository. It has also been useful for our 10 Experts who have direct access to their Review Stage, and I expect it will make preparing deposition exhibits much faster. I am able to use DISCO Ediscovery document reports to create document production indicia and will do the same for our trial exhibit lists. With a one-hour training, our Experts have become proficient in their document reviews, and one expert [who we use very frequently] specifically "hopes" that we continue to use DISCO Ediscovery firm-wide because he is very pleased with its ease of use. I hope my firm will employ DISCO Ediscovery firm-wide in our future cases as well because they are all voluminous.
  • Search and locate
  • Document organization
  • Ease of use
  • Review Stages are used by our Experts with direct access, which eliminates the need to create folders on our servers, download to flash drives, or having to upload documents and create links in the cloud
  • I wish there were a more efficient way to identify and tag duplicates. Other than that, DISCO Ediscovery is fantastic!
DISCO Ediscovery is the most powerful tool I've come across in my 37 years as a complex tort trial paralegal. I don't see any scenario where it would be less appropriate. I think even in non-legal areas, DISCO Ediscovery could be effectively employed to manage any dataset – for instance, I bet it could be super useful for managing medical records, and review stages could be created per patient.

We manage documents for a number of our cases using DISCO. We do document reviews and a small number of document productions from disco. Primarily use it for review and tagging of documents shared across the team.
  • Document tagging and coding
  • Fast document previews
  • Searching and sorting
  • Machine learning for searches and document coding
  • Predictive coding is generally worthless
  • Removing or sorting out duplicates
It’s one of the best if not the best ediscovery database platforms.

Document review, deposition preparation, and trial preparation

  • exhibit sets
  • Ease of use - not counter-intuitive
  • Providing a list of what DISCO can do i.e., translation applications
Cost-effective Ease of use (not a bunch of training required to perform searches) Easy to add reviewers Doc review platform is very helpful. Deposition prep is easy and keeping track of exhibits for Motions, depositions, and eventually trial. Would like to have a comprehensive list of other areas DISCO can be helpful i.e., the translation application is a huge cost saver in determining whether foreign language documents are responsive and worthy of translation by a certified translator.

DISCO Ediscovery is our enterprise solution for e-discovery at the firm.
  • De-duplication
  • Ease of review
  • Tagging
  • Search and review
  • Should be easier to add tags while in other parts of the platform. i.e. I should be able to add a tag while setting up or managing a review.
Very goo. DISCO Ediscovery is an easy-to-use solution but if you aren't going to bother to learn how to take control and use it for production, culling, searching, etc. then may as well use something else.

Our entire firm uses DISCO [eDiscovery] as our go-to ediscovery vendor, to review and process documents produced during discovery. It has been valuable in that role, and we continue to use it whenever possible in our cases.
  • Document review
  • Document tagging
  • Document production processing
  • It's a little tedious to search by Bates number, especially if you want to search for a specific Bates-numbered page, but don't know the Bates number of the page that begins the document.
As with all ediscovery platforms I've encountered, DISCO is great for large-scale document reviews and productions. The value drops as the number of the documents drops. Basically, it does well what it's supposed to do.

The County uses Disco [eDiscovery] for litigation discovery and public records requests for many different departments. From the time we started using Disco in 2015 the company has made many upgrades in direct response to suggestions and/or complaints made by their users. I consider this to be telling as to what kind of company they are. They listen to their clients and make changes in order to accommodate their needs. Disco has worked with my office so that we can use this product County-wide for public records requests. When we first started using Disco it was only for litigation and processing documents for discovery and depositions. Disco is great for this, but we knew it would be extremely helpful for us to be able to use it for the many PRRs we received across the County. With Disco's support, we now help departments Countywide to efficiently and quickly process public records requests and are able to do so without impacting our budget.
  • Excellent user interface
  • Good support team
  • Helpful tutorials
  • Listening to clients and making changes to accommodate needs
  • I'd still like to be able to extract single pages from Disco within a larger set of documents.
  • Sometimes billing groups can be a little difficult to work with as they can be unresponsive and slow to correct errors.
Not everyone's needs are the same, but I think Disco [eDiscovery]can be used for a wide array of tasks. Companies big and small can afford to use their services.

This was used by a specific team in my organization to review files we were receiving from an outside client. We needed to be able to code the various files for certain issues, highlight key search terms that the files hit on, and batch them out to specific people.
  • Intuitive website design
  • Clear metrics available to show review progress
  • Highlighting of search terms seemed buggy, particularly, when we were doing Boolean searches
  • Better deduplicating ability
DISCO [eDiscovery] was very intuitive to use compared to other document hosting platforms like Relativity and Ringtail. However, I found it had less capability in terms of advanced filtering and searching. For instance, we were told you can't flag all files that have a specific characteristic and then remove those from the search group. I think it would be well-suited to more straightforward document review projects where you won't be sifting through a lot of duplicates or need more advanced search capabilities.

We use DISCO Ediscovery to host, review, manage, and produce client documents and adverse productions, and for deposition and trial exhibits.
  • Ingests, tagging, productions
  • Fantastic search capability, even beginner users can master it with little training.
  • Customized reviewer profiling, very helpful for expert and client access.
  • Very easy for beginners and non-tech-savvy users--this is my #1 favorite thing about DISCO Ediscovery and the main reason I brought it into the firm.
  • I wish we could dismiss the redaction reasons box either per case or toggle it on and off. It's really annoying and in our practice we rarely, if ever, use it.
  • I would like to be able to tick checkboxes in document review, like in Relativity.
  • Search and redact would be extremely helpful, like in Adobe.
  • Tiny pinpoint redactions are very difficult to do in DISCO Ediscovery (Otherwise I love the redaction tool).
The best thing about DISCO Ediscovery is how user-friendly it is, for all levels of users. I can train the most anti-tech person and have them reviewing and tagging documents in 10 minutes (and loving it). It is a fantastic tool for all sizes of cases, from tiny productions to massive data sets. DISCO Ediscovery works well at every level. We use it for very small one-and-done productions and huge ongoing cases as well, and everything in between.

We have used this platform at a department-wide level. It has allowed us to share large documents on the cloud. It also makes it easier to search for the correct document to review on the cloud by using intelligent search features. It overlays Amazon Web Services, which has good built-in security protocols.
  • Search documents
  • Share documents
  • Organize documents
  • Pricing
  • Improved search accuracy
  • Staff availability
DISCO Ediscovery is well suited for a department that exchanges lots a large documents between colleagues. You can think of DISCO Ediscovery as a smart virtual archive. If you need to look up documents that have not been reviewed recently, then the intelligent search tools can expedite the process. It also allows you to view similar documents to the one you are currently viewing.

We use DISCO Ediscovery for my firm's cases with large discovery demands. Attorneys use it to manage case discovery, to review and to produce documents. We use it for investigations and for its tagging and AI tagging capabilities. DISCO Ediscovery has powerful and intuitive search operators. Compared to Relativity, it is simpler and quicker to use. I have used it to create complex privilege logs and to review documents almost every day.
  • DISCO Ediscovery's search terms are intuitive and powerful.
  • DISCO Ediscovery allows you to easily extract lists of document metadata and attorney work product.
  • DISCO Ediscovery makes productions easy, including bates numbering documents.
  • Analyzing near duplicates
  • Identifying unique email or "inclusive" emails
  • OCR could be improved (already great) to pick up smaller-sized text
DISCO Ediscovery is well suited for documents that are conventionally formatted, etc. DISCO Ediscovery has a harder time with smaller-than-usual text or funky formats, such as PDFs generated from spreadsheets. DISCO Ediscovery sometimes lags [from my experience] and documents do not load (but it is still faster than Relativity). DISCO Ediscovery has no feature to search for inclusive documents, the IsInclusive feature only works with emails.

Disco [eDiscovery] allows us to handle cases with large volumes of discovery with ease. Our whole organization uses it and we sometimes hire outside attorneys to help with extensive discovery. It allows us to access everything in the same place, use tags, folders, etc.
  • Tags are helpful to flag certain documents.
  • The detailed search bar is helpful.
  • Sorting by custodian helps.
  • It would be helpful if you could search for key words that show up in documents.
We handle many cases with hundreds of thousands of documents and DISCO Ediscovery helps us simplify and manage those cases.

We use DISCO Ediscovery as an e-discovery platform for our larger cases, maintaining all discovery files in DISCO Ediscovery. DISCO Ediscovery is great at searching through voluminous discovery files, with user-friendly search options and easy sorting capabilities.
  • Searchability
  • Maintaining files
  • User friendly
  • Easier to search by custodian
  • An easily accessible glossary of search functions/keys and explanations
  • Easier to search by who sent or received an email
DISCO Ediscovery works well when you have a case with substantial documents (e.g., more than 10k and up to millions). It's not worth the cost if it's a smaller file.

DISCO is the best!

DISCO is our favorite e-discovery tool, and it is used in over a half dozen matters at any given time. Managing e-discovery in complex litigation where there are hundreds of thousands of documents can be extremely time-consuming, and even more challenging to find the specific information requested by attorneys. DISCO is used by all legal team members and experts, the ability to consolidate and share work product in one platform is extremely valuable. Because the system is so intuitive it makes on-boarding new reviewers fast. But the best feature is the analysis it provides with AI/predictive coding, it is absolutely next level.
  • 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.
DISCO is perfect for our large and complex matters, where early case assessment can be used to reduce monthly hosting costs. By utilizing the AI we can avoid costly eyes on review of non-responsive or unimportant documents by performing random sampling analysis on large sets of documents, this has been incredibly successful and the accuracy and confidence levels achieved are well beyond what can be expected with a contract review process.
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.

The virtual law firm I work for uses DISCO to manage Ediscovery projects. Personally, I do document review on the platform, but the managing attorneys use it to review produced documents or respond to discovery requests. I have used several different Ediscovery platforms, and this is one of the more intuitive ones.
  • 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.
I would recommend DISCO because the support level seems high, the user interface is straightforward, and it can manage large amounts of documents. Attorneys can batch upsets of documents if a team is working in the same database. I'm not sure if it's helpful for building timelines, but that's probably something their support team could assist with.

DISCO [Ediscovery] is used by attorneys for document review and preparation of document productions.
  • 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

DISCO provides a closed-universe database for the plaintiff's and defendant's documents. The database allows attorney's to use search parameters to research case-specific issues. Further DISCO allows attorneys to set up review stages for teams to review both plaintiff and defendant's documents. DISCO allows the review manager to run reports to view the tagged items in the review, and further, the "All meta-data" report allows the review manager to view any comments the reviewers added to the documents.
  • Ability to run reports.
  • Managing review stages.
  • Research.
  • 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.
DISCO is well suited for managing large data sets and is particularly useful for running review stages to highlight relevant and non responsive documents. DISCO is well suited for building exhibit sets from the documents produced. DISCO creates a database of both plaintiff and defendant documents and allows users to run searches using syntax, and the search builder helps users learn the DISCO syntax.

DISCO is used by our entire organization. We use it to organize huge numbers of documents so that we are able to quickly find and tag certain documents.
  • Tagging documents.
  • Filtering for documents in a search.
  • Organizing the documents.
  • More user-friendly interface.
  • Easier search parameters.
DISCO is perfect for huge numbers of documents. If you need a library for documents, which is common in the legal field, then DISCO is perfect. DISCO may not be necessary if the documents library is not large (less than 100 documents). If the library is starting to overwhelm, however, DISCO is the best option I have seen thus far.

DISCO is successfully being used for multiple litigated matters of various types and complexities to assist in ediscovery data gathering, analytics, document production, deposition preparation, motion practice, and trial preparation.
  • 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).
DISCO works extremely well for all size document productions. Don't make the mistake of thinking that it is only a super large size ediscovery tool. DISCO has cost-effective solutions for small data sizes too.

DISCO is a fantastic e-discovery tool. It is streamlined, and very intuitive. Yet it still retains the features of the more well-established document review platforms without requiring advance knowledge. It allows users to self-manage ingest and production, as well as managing in-house review teams. As it is web based, it is compatible with nearly every system.
  • 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."
The best use for DISCO is having emails in native format. It easily threads them, and allows you to see full conversations with ease, and see what was not collected.

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.
