We combine the power of artificial intelligence, cloud computing and our own digital magic to make search smarter, review faster and discovery more affordable.

Making Search Smarter

Introducing Sherlock

Meet Sherlock,  the world’s first AI-powered digital bloodhound. Sherlock analyzes documents you have already seen and then finds other relevant ones to further your investigation. Sherlock eliminates the need to craft complicated keyword searches. Instead, it uses a smart algorithm to fetch relevant documents faster, more easily, and at lower cost than traditional keyword search. 

Sherlock works like Pandora Internet Radio. Only when you click “thumbs up,” Sherlock fetches great documents rather than great music. 

Just say: “Go get ’em, Sherlock!

Making Review Easier (and Faster)

Speed, Simplicity & Visual Analytics

We’ve been developing review software for two decades, supporting individuals and teams of all sizes. Speed and simplicity have always been critical to our success along with our mastery of automated review workflow. This time around we are adding new ways to visualize data, new ways to scan document content and a first of its kind “cluster batching” algorithm.  

Making review easier, faster and more efficient is the heart of our mission to reinvent search.  
You’re going to love Merlin from the moment you log in.

Making Discovery Affordable

True Cloud Pricing

Our cloud-native architecture allows us to offer you a range of pricing options to fit your needs and your budget. Pay for our systems by the day, week or month. Or, secure deeper discounts by reserving resources for a year or longer, moving cases on or off the platform as needs dictate. 

Depending on platform configuration and needs, you can elect to pay for your site by the day, the week or for however long you need for your matter. Pay for what you need, when you need it. 

Choose the traditional model with most services included in a fixed monthly price. If your matter settles you can shut down your site and stop the billing at the end of the month.

Hibernate your site during slow periods to reduce hosting costs until you need it again.  With an extended contract, move cases on or off the platform as you need them, paying only for active site.

We can deploy your site anywhere in the world at reasonable prices. This allows you to comply with local data protection and privacy laws, keeping data from each region in each region.
