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

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.

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

We have a project with 1.5 million pages. It can quickly narrow down keyword searches to return documents with the keyword in them.

Cons

To be able to go specifically jump to the place where your keyword appears within the document requires background work done by a tech, which makes absolutely zero sense when the document is already text recognized. We are paying $xx,xxx.00 a month, I don't want to be waiting on someone else to complete all the background work before I can jump in. It should just automatically be part of the software. It is almost faster to take all those documents convert them to pdf and OCR them myself, then you could avoid all the costs to relativity and having to wait on someone else.

Once you learn this software its easy to get document review jobs since most companies use Relativity.

Cons

So buggy and difficult to use. It must be inexpensive since so many companies use it as their main platform. I hate working on doc review jobs that use Relativity. It is such a headache!

The keyword search feature works well. I was able to fairly quickly locate specific documents in the database without having a lot of false positives, and without missing anything important.

Cons

It's a little slow when processing a large batch of documents. I also found the user interface to be a bit hard to use.

I love that you can fashion any search you need, plus it offers other tools (like clustering) to look at data so that you can get to the important issues

I cannot say much. They have a big issue on accumulating meta data.

Pros

It generally works smoothly. There is no stucking between screens and no frozen screens. It is fast.

Cons

Interface and ease of use is not good. There is a big problem of accumulation of metadata. It is not user friendly.

Difficult implementation. Technical set up a lot more complicated than end user experience. Support not the best.

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. But it's also easy to learn initially. And as one progresses with more complex reviewing, quality control, and batching needs, the software can keep up while still providing the simple interface.

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.

Unsurprisingly, as the market leader for e-discovery platforms, Relativity sets the gold standard for overall quality and functionality. However, the learning curve is very steep, as is the cost.
