Sherlock Integrated Search

Integrating AI, keywords and advanced cloud technologies
to make discovery faster, easier and more cost-effective.

A full-featured discovery platform for search, investigation and review

AI-Powered Discovery

We’re ushering in a new era for discovery with Sherlock, the first AI-integrated search, investigation and review platform. It is fast, feature-rich and easy to use, covering the discovery lifecycle. 

Sherlock is the first to integrate keywords seamlessly with algorithmic search, harnessing the power of our advanced machine learning algorithms to provide a faster, easier and more cost-effective way to find information in large document sets.

We deliver our software via the AWS cloud–through a unique single-tenant architecture that increases security and site control. It also enables the first-ever On/Off Cloud Utility Pricing. Pay one hourly rate when the site is active and a 70% reduced rate when you turn it off, saving money and supporting green computing.  

For Virtually Any Use Case

Use Sherlock Integrated Search as a standalone investigation and discovery tool, or use it alongside your existing technology stack. The platform’s speed, ease of use and benefits offered through single-tenant design make it ideal for many use cases: 

  • Time-sensitive internal investigations, such as HR/employment, theft, conflicts of interest, fraud, unfair competition and other issues involving code of conduct
  • Government and regulatory investigations, Dawn Raids and other situations in which you need to quickly respond to requests 
  • ECA, analysis, review and production for ediscovery, investigations and regulatory compliance matters
  • Rapid culling and organization of likely responsive or privileged data prior to moving into a preferred review platform 
  • Third-party subpoenas and centralized subpoena management 
  • Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests
  • Large set data investigation and review for M&A, small claims management, patient-reported data, email archives and other pre-litigation and business use cases

Once you start using Sherlock Integrated Search, you’ll be amazed at its many use cases.

See Sherlock in Action!

Watch these videos to see Sherlock in action. The videos are all based on a collection of nearly two million emails from Jeb Bush’s two terms as governor of Florida in the early 2000s. Governor Bush made these documents public, and a portion was used at the NIST Text Retrieval Conferences (TREC). They cover a wide range of topics and create an ideal environment to see Sherlock in action.

In this introduction, we start with one document related to efforts to protect manatees in Florida and send it to Sherlock, who quickly analyzes the approximately two million documents to find more. 

See the full extent of our platform. Start with Freeform Search (no keyword syntax required) and then find a good starting set of documents. Send the set to Sherlock. Start to finish in seconds!
