(This post is part of the Lawyer-Focused Design series, which explores 10 ways in which Disco is designed for lawyers.)
Disco delivers 1/3 second search and 1/10 second document navigation, even on the largest multiterabyte datasets. That is search literally in the blink of an eye and document navigation faster than a Ferrari shifts.
Waiting for searches to run and documents to load, especially on large datasets, is the number one cause of lawyers’ frustration with other ediscovery platforms. Customers switching from Relativity, Kroll, Viewpoint, Concordance, Summation, and similar products have reported instant search speeds in Disco for datasets that took seconds, minutes, or, in one case, overnight to search in these other platforms. Disco solves this speed problem.
Speed benefits lawyers in two ways: first, lawyers complete reviews and find evidence faster; and second, lawyers’ quality of life is better when they can focus on practicing law instead of waiting on slow software. As important as these benefits is a third: responsive software puts evidence directly in the hands of senior lawyers. The litigator trying a case or arguing a summary-judgment motion can pull evidence from Disco as quickly and easily as he can pull cases from Westlaw or Lexis.
