Uses Predictive Ranking to Provide Corporate Counsel and Law Firms More Accurate Forecasts of the Time and Cost Benefits of Technology-Assisted Review

Denver—August 6, 2013—To help quantify the cost benefits of predictive coding and technology-assisted review, Catalyst Repository Systems, Inc., the leader in secure, cloud-based e-­discovery software that simplifies e-discovery for corporate counsel and law firms, today announced the release of its Predictive Ranking ROI Calculator. The free, web-based calculator gives corporations and their legal teams greater cost predictability by estimating how much time and money they will save from using Insight Predict, a Predictive RankingSM tool, instead of linear review or first-generation predictive coding tools.

The Catalyst Predictive Ranking ROI Calculator analyzes the entire scope of a review project—including the total number of documents, the percentage of responsive documents, estimated target recall, and hourly rates for first-pass and second-pass or privilege reviewers. The result is a detailed accounting of the savings realized from Predictive Ranking in dollars, hours and documents reviewed. Results appear immediately, with a yield curve showing the percentage of documents that counsel needs to identify as responsive in order to achieve their target recall.

“Insight Predict revolutionized technology-assisted review for corporate legal departments and law firms by introducing the first predictive coding tool that works with rolling collections and real-world workflows,” said John Tredennick, CEO of Catalyst. “In response to client feedback, we developed the ROI Calculator to help GCs and other legal professionals quantify the benefits of Insight Predict versus traditional review.”

“Catalyst clients already know that Insight Predict enables a more efficient, less expensive process—with smarter searches, more accurate and consistent tagging, and the ability to identify key legal issues,” Tredennick continued. “Now, with the ROI Calculator, legal teams have a tool to forecast the potential savings from Insight Predict before beginning the review.”

About Catalyst Insight Predict

Insight Predict helps corporations save time and money while mitigating risk. It is based on more than four years of intensive experience using and testing predictive coding techniques. The tool uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to offer significant advantages over human review:

  • Contextual diversity sampling and other statistical techniques are used to create a sample, or “seed set,” from a larger population of documents. Review experts can then review the sample, rank documents for relevance and feed that information back into the program, thereby “training” it to calculate the relevance of documents on its own.
  • Insight Predict was designed specifically to work dynamically with rolling data input, making it the only predictive coding technology that aligns with the typical review workflow.
  • Catalyst’s proprietary self-correcting process—Predictive Ranking—feeds additional samples to the expert to test or validate their relevance and to progressively improve the accuracy and precision of the rankings.
