EDT Testimonials

Gyorgy Pados
White & Case LLP, Global Technology Solutions Lead, NYC.

EDT is a truly impressive “single” system — from processing to review. The single back-end database manages data end-to-end, giving us the flexibility to stage things if we want to, from the Processing to the Analyst module, to validate and cull, before releasing datasets for review, no matter their size. It’s super easy.

With EDT's cloud deployment option, using AWS offers elasticity to expand the environment on demand to process large datasets, which can be scaled back so you only incur the extra cost you need during peak periods.

Tom O'Connor
Founder and Director, Gulf Coast Legal Technology Center

In early 2018, I was retained to assist a client in a major litigation matter. They were using EDT and I had to jump right in to a 1TB + sized database with nothing but the training manual and the help system. Fortunately EDT is extremely easy to learn and use so I hit the ground running and we ended up with a successful outcome for the client. But during the engagement I realized there were many more features to EDT than I had used and I decided to begin training certification in order to truly understand the full breadth of the feature set. Having the Review certification has helped me assist other clients since that first engagement and I plan on continuing with the remainder of the certifications to make my depth of knowledge on the product even greater.

Partner, McGrathNicol

Our New Zealand clients want discovery solutions with affordable, predictable and transparent pricing. They understand the need to do early case assessment (“ECA”) to reduce data volumes early and keep costs proportionate. We chose EDT because it not only puts the ECA process firmly in the hands of the legal team but also because the ECA features are integrated into a full featured review platform. That means no load files and we don’t need to shuffle data around from a processing & ECA platform to a separate review platform. That reduces complexity and saves our clients time and money.

Stephanie Williams
Director of eDiscovery, ellwood Evidence, Inc.

We chose EDT because our boutique law firm clients wanted the advantages of a cloud-based review platform, easy access, powerful analytics and collaboration but they were not prepared to impose the high fixed and variable costs of other hosted eDiscovery solutions on their clients. EDT offers an accessible path to the advantages without the human resource and cost burden. Taking the steps to become a CESA not only enriched my knowledge of the software but has allowed me to offer our clients a full understanding of the software and delve into how it can help each client's unique situation. The learning gained from the accreditation further helped me to understand the behind the scenes of EDT providing me the ability to bridge the technical aspects and our clients' eDiscovery needs.

David Lapresi
eDiscovery and Litigation Support Manager, Phillips Lytle LLP

After looking at many other options, EDT has proved to be the most efficient from an administration and cost perspective.

I would welcome a race against other platforms to create a case, process data and have it ready to go so the attorneys could do some analysis or full review. Very happy with our selection of EDT's single, full-featured affordable product. The attorneys adopted it quickly with virtually no training.

EDT is a full featured platform. It combines indexing/ingestion speed, and its multi-server setup allows a lot of flexibility as you can have multiple concurrent processes running – ingestion, review and exporting. While we initially proposed to use it for processing and ECA platform but we’ve been pleasantly surprised to see our lawyers also embrace the EDT review functionality. They found it really easy to use.

Christopher Redlich
Litigation Support Manager, Allen & Overy

The defining moment in using EDT was when the lawyers realized we didn’t need to incur the cost of processing to create a load file prior to the review. The efficiencies were enormous. On top of minimizing our time spent processing files, our lawyers now have insights into enormous volumes of data they obtained during the early analysis phase.

EDT is a game changer. It offers early data culling capabilities that dramatically reduce costs and the insight it provides into the facts at an early stage in the case positions our firm to help settle cases earlier and with great outcomes.

Shawn Huston
Founder & CEO, Legal Support Partners

EDT is a powerful ECA platform for Relativity. It gives deep insight into the collected data and enables litigators to make informed culling decisions at the very beginning of the case. They can see the impact of their proposed keywords, date, document type and other filters before they are applied by showing the numbers of responsive documents and enabling them to drill down into the content of those documents. They can iterate through alternative filters many times over until they settle on those they wish to apply. This really puts ECA in the hands of the legal team. It delivers enormous savings because intelligent culling and prioritization takes place prior to the creation of the Relativity load files and that, in turn, means lower processing and data hosting costs, not to mention enormous reductions in review time and cost.

Adam Bown
Head of Cloud Forensics and Data Analysis, Cloud Essentials.

EDT’s data processing has all the indexing, OCR and de-duplication functionality you expect from a high-end solution. Its early case assessment tools are also very effective at digging beneath the surface of who, what, when, where and why to shed light on connections that aren’t immediately obvious. That greatly assists culling decisions.

The AI Lab is also an exciting initiative. It provides us with an ability to actively engage in innovative new experiments and to influence future technology directions to meet our ever-evolving needs.

Our innovative approach to discovery review is perfectly aligned with EDT’s flexible architecture. Our emphasis on iterative analysis throughout the discovery review is supported by EDT’s workflows and functionality. By implementing best practices, the efficiencies are considerable.

As one of EDT’s 2019 TRU Staffing Partners Legal Scholarship
Program award recipients, I wasted little Jay-Jay Flanagan-Grannemann time in completing EDT Academy's Certified EDT Reviewer (CER) training videos and examination in April. I applied for the CER scholarship in order to broaden my education in the eDiscovery field and become familiar with a new platform. I enjoyed the EDT Academy training course, and learned even more from the experience of taking the online examination. I look forward to future opportunities to work with EDT. Go zebras!

Our firm has used EDT for a number of years and we have gradually used the platform more and more across the full life cycle of investigation and litigation projects. In my view it’s an excellent value proposition given its full feature set and the easy, transparent pricing model that allows multiple users and processing machines without any additional charge.

In large litigation matters, early case assessment is important tool to assist in the setting of realistic objectives. This involves an assessment of all relevant facts and issues, including understanding the likely volume of documents to be discovered, reviewing critical documents and speaking to critical witnesses in order to make an early assessment of likely outcomes. A realistic estimate of the costs will ensure more informed decisions are made about both managing and/or resolving litigation.

But during the engagement I realized there were many more features to EDT than I had used and I decided to begin training certification in order to truly understand the full breadth of the feature set. Having the Review certification has helped me assist other clients since that first engagement and I plan on continuing with the remainder of the certifications to make my depth of knowledge on the product even greater.
