With other Relativity providers, customer data is often imported and exported multiple times between the processing and hosting environments. Every time data is moved between platforms it is subject to increased risk of corruption and time delays, as each step involves a human touchpoint. These various exchanges can ultimately slow down projects and potentially cause missed deadlines. Inventus’ proprietary middleware, Direct Link, is fully integrated into our eDiscovery software; data is linked directly from our processing tool to our Relativity hosting environment. This means that source data only needs to be stored and processed once, eliminating the risk and potential errors that may occur when processing, exporting and copying data between platforms, and allowing greater data protection. With Direct Link, clients save time, eliminate redundant costs that are inherent to data processing and review, and meet tight production deadlines by speeding the document production process.
