Cavo Legal has gathered a team of highly experienced legal practitioners working with visionary software designers to create a whole new approach to designing eDiscovery software solutions. We are convinced that there is a better way to respond to the explosion of information in the new world of Big Data. We believe in Early Case Assessment tools, and their ability to reduce the volume of data that gets ingested, which is why we built those tools right into our platform. But, we also need better ways to locate responsive documents and analyze complex communication patterns that are contained in email chains.
Our technology is built to connect people with the information that they need to achieve extraordinary outcomes. It includes innovations in software technology, advanced search algorithms and Cloud architecture which come together to make possible a new vision of what eDiscovery can be. A few of these fundamental beliefs include:
eDiscovery Costs Can be Predictable
One of the basic building blocks of Cavo eD is the inclusion of Best Practice checklists which can be used to guide the entire cycle of litigation, assuring that all steps are followed and produces processes that are defensible in court. The checklists contain individual tasks on a granular level that flow through the entire unified eDiscovery platform. This produces a wealth of information on eDiscovery costs which lead to predictable budgets and forecasting
A Unified eDiscovery Platform is more Effective
The design of Cavo eD is based on the belief that software can be both extremely powerful and easy to use. It should not require a software expert to produce results that are needed by the litigation team. And given the non-linear nature of litigation, the Ribbon Bar is both logical and flexible, to account for the constantly changing priorities during litigation. Non-linear functionality allows the user to be extremely flexible in responding to the real world conditions that you encounter every day.
Automated Document Workflows Reduce Costs
Cavo eD has features which automatically route documents to different folders and different users, depending on the documents’ characteristics like custodian, or specific words in key fields of information. Case Managers can the set up workflows to auto-tag documents or assign them for Review and other activities.
Intelligent Search is Better
Cavo Legal has a 12 year history in search algorithm development that is at the heart of our system. During data processing, we capture thematic concepts from each document, creating a virtual “fingerprint” that is far more effective in searches than keywords alone. Our Advanced Concept Search Feature allows you to easily find all documents with similar themes, quickly producing sets of relevant documents for more in depth review. The system builds complex Boolean searches with a few clicks of a mouse, eliminating the need for linguistic experts.
Open Source and Propriety Software has Advantages
By creating a unified platform using open source architecture and developing proprietary solutions when we needed them, we have created an environment that is entirely within our control. We are not reliant on any external companies to provide our clients with full support for everything in the platform. As a result, we can implement client requests and changes with unprecedented speed.
Advanced Processing Speed is Needed for Big Data
Processing with Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) allows our users to get into their data more quickly with more useable document information. Developing a distributed processing approach in the cloud means that your data can be processed quickly and cost effectively, since you are only “renting” the computer capacity you need while your data is being processed. Once processing is completed, there is no need to pay for the extra capacity.
