Review and Analyse Data
Telesto enables you to access, search and review your data on either Telesto’s or your own preferred review platform. Telesto uses EDT and FTI’s Ringtail.
EDT Software delivers a single platform to ingest, analyse, review and export documents. Telesto offers EDT’s full suite of discovery tools which are perfect for early case assessment, fast culls and simple reviews.
FTI’s Ringtail is a market leading discovery and document management platform which features structured review workflows, advanced analytical tools and technology assisted review (predictive coding).
- Review Platform
Telesto use FTIs Ringtail, an industry leading discovery platform for document management, review and production. Ringtail gives users the ability to search, review, tag and comment against documents as necessary. Telesto’s industry-leading processes, coupled with Ringtail’s structured review workflows, analytical tools and technology assisted review (predictive coding) deliver our clients with an unparalleled document management service.
- Ringtail Predictive Coding
Telesto incorporates artificial intelligence into our document reviews to reduce the number of documents requiring traditional review and identify relevant documents sooner. Ringtail’s predictive coding allows for an individual to teach a computer what is and what isn’t relevant to a specific matter. The computer considers the individuals teachings and applies this logic to a broader document set via a positive/negative scoring system.
- Ringtail Analytics
Analytics is the discovery, interpretation, and communication of meaningful patterns in data; a concept that proves highly valuable when applied to large scale documents review.
Early Case Assessment and Data Analysis
Telesto’s sophisticated Early Case Assessment (ECA) and analytics enable us to analyse and significantly reduce large volumes of data.
The benefits of reducing data volumes prior to a document review include:
- Reduced Costs. With less data, the electronic processing phase is expedited.
- Higher Relevance Ratio. Refining the data at the electronic processing phase ensures that legal team time is concentrated on relevant documents, yielding a higher relevance ratio.
- Lower Data Hosting Costs. Minimising the amount of data uploaded for document review will minimise data hosting charges.
- Improved cost estimates, review planning and resourcing. Having a clear understanding of data allows for this.
Telesto offers onshore and offshore paralegal services, including on and off premises paralegal reviews, and the services of a legal process outsourcing company.
