Overall Satisfaction with DISCO Ediscovery

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.
  • Improved learning on case-specific issues.
  • Improved accuracy with deposition preparation.
  • Improved speed with review stage management.
1. All meta-data report: Allows Review manager to view all tagged documents, and all document notes. Review manager is able to run document report with all metadata for documents with particular tag, and is able to view the comments from the reviewers in one column.
2. Mass-foldering: Allows search results to be saved in folder without having to individually save each document.
3. Review Stage Management: Allows Review manager to learn the pace of the review and see the results of the review at a glance.
DISCO allows the firm to host defendants documents. After the review of defendant's documents, plaintiff is able to determine which documents are non-responsive and the team is able to run a culling review to eliminate some of the stored data which saves on the cost of the document review.
DISCO provides users with the ability to quickly search documents. Some DISCO documents such as large excel or PowerPoint files take several seconds to load. Should the user want to view the document instantaneously, DISCO allows the user to view the file in text form, which is the quickest way to load the document. The searches take a few seconds to load regardless of the length of the parameters and the number of hits of the search.
DISCO allows users to folder relevant documents and share those folders with experts who rely on the data in the folders for their expert reports. Further DISCO allows users to create exhibit sets which experts can view to develop their expert reports. Further DISCO allows users to prepare for depositions by reviewing custodial files and flagging any documents that pertain to the deposition.
The Managed Review allowed for my team to be able to prepare for depositions. We set up the custodial files of the deponents into review stages, and the reviewers flagged documents that would be useful to defending the deposition. Further, through managed review stages, the reviewers were able to gain case-specific expertise, and flag any documents that benefited the plaintiff's case in chief.
I have used proprietary in-house software at a litigation management firm. The in-house software allowed for documents to be processed and coded in order for the end-user to run a report that met the end-users parameters. DISCO allows for documents to be ingested, and for those ingested documents to be divided into review stages. The reports that DISCO allows the end-user to run are far superior to end-user reports of other in-house systems.
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.
