e-discovery enabled us to build a best-of-breed multi-
matter repository that provides the efficiency and control
that corporate counsel demands,” says Tredennick.
Catalyst Insight features:
•;Powerful search. Insight has the most powerful search
engine for text and field searches in the industry. The
search function goes beyond Boolean constructs
and can handle complex inquiries against millions of
documents. The Faceted Search allows users to drill
deeper with field value analysis, and Power Search can
run thousands of searches with one mouse click.
•;Advanced Continuous Active Learning (CAL)
technology. Insight features unique “TAR 2.0”, which
allows the system to learn from reviewers’ judgments as
they move through documents. CAL is independently
proven to deliver better results and lower costs than
other TAR methods, many of which require initial training
by a senior member of the legal team. The difference is
stark: Research by leading e-discovery experts, Maura
Grossman, Esq., and Professor Gordon Cormack showed
that CAL found 75% of relevant documents after reviewing
only 1% of total stored documents. TAR 1.0 engines,
on the other hand, had to review 15 to 30 times more
documents than CAL to get the same number of hits.
•;Visual analytics. Visual analytics make it much easier
to draw focused conclusions from large amounts of
data. Insight allows the user to toggle to a chart view
based on one or many of the report fields, including a
time-based view of the information. This is particularly
useful when reviewing email communications between
individuals or teams.
•;Broad language support. Multi-language support
benefits not just global companies, but also midsized
organizations working with offshore suppliers or mulit-
language documents. Insight supports more than
300 languages, including symbol-based ones such as
Chinese, Japanese and Korean—of great benefit given
increased levels of trade and business with Asia. This
functionality also delivers better support for machine
based language translation, which also improves results.
•;Active Review. Efficiency is contingent on a well
organized and effective review workflow. Catalyst
pioneered Active Review, which integrates TAR 2.0
directly into the review module. This allows teams to
set up the review process that best fits their needs and
consistently transition documents along the review
process. The management dashboard provides up-to-date
information on the review process, as well as benchmarks
and reports to track progress and productivity.
•;Support for multiple law firms/partners. In the age of
specialization, and with a wide breadth of legal actions
taking place, technology must seamlessly support multiple
external law firms and experts. Insight provides a consistent
interface and increased efficiency across all external partners.
For corporations, a confluence of factors has dramatically
changed the task of e-discovery and document collection.
Ever increasing amounts of data, new business and tech
concerns, and the rising cost of legal services make the serial
approach to e-discovery outdated, costly and time-consuming.
What’s more, a lack of process consistency and differing
standards when it comes to document discovery can lead
to mistakes or omissions, along with the risk of substantial
penalties. Quite simply, corporations need a centralized,
multi-matter repository for litigation data; it is the only cost
effective way to meet current and future challenges.
Catalyst delivers a multi-matter repository and solution
that is second to none. It reduces redundancy by storing
only one instance of a document, requires organizations to
process data only once, and uses leading-edge review and
TAR 2.0 technology for superior results. This all adds up to a
fundamentally better approach to ESI management that reduces
costs and empowers organizations and their legal partners.
