A city entity partnered with Shepherd Data Services when they needed to respond to a public records request in conjunction with a pending litigation. With a collection of 1.2M documents, Shepherd recommended using Relativity ECA and Investigation to quickly and defensibly identify relevant documents. The team used dashboard visualizations to evaluate the impact of different search terms combined with filters, enabling them to identify less than 100,000 documents for review in one week. This workflow helped guide their decision making throughout the process and cut the overall cost of the project in half.

"We are very impressed with Relativity ECA and Investigation. Our clients now have a platform to cull documents in a way that makes sense to them, with great visuals and immediate feedback."
BENJAMIN LEGATT, VP of Client Consulting
