Deloitte Discovery™ is the document hosting and review component of Deloitte Forensic's end-to-end electronic discovery service. It facilitates secure and efficient document search, retrieval, collation and review.
Deloitte Discovery™ allows multiple users to review and manage hardcopy and electronic documents for litigation, investigations and other engagements that require multiple users to access large volumes of information simultaneously and in multiple locations. It can be used through the lifecycle of a matter, from discovery through to trial. Sophisticated but easy to use search tools help ensure a quick and accurate turnaround.
For many organisations, the process of justifying claims to the ATO often includes the collation and supply of millions of documents. We provide advisory services in relation to the collection, storage and management of these documents. Further, our hosting platform is secure, globally-accessible web based document and data storage service with advanced but easy to use search and retrieval tools. It has powerful features which improve global document review efficiency and effectiveness, again saving time and money.
With a rising number of organisations operating in an increasing litigious environment, there is a greater need to reduce the risk and manage the costs of discovery through careful preparation and process improvement. We work with your company to validate the steps taken in developing your readiness program, should a challenge in your discovery process ever rise.
Deloitte Discovery™ offers users benefits including:
Quick setup: can be set up quickly with data and images loaded soon after they are made available to us.
Cost effective: as a fully supported, hosted solution, there is no need for capital outlay or dedicated support staff. It is easy to use, saving time and money on training. Productivity is improved as reviewers can easily search through high numbers of documents and quickly focus on those documents that are most important to the case/engagement.
Easily accessible: being web based, any authorised user with internet access can use it. This enables users in different geographic locations to collaborate effectively on the same engagement 24/7. It supports a number of foreign languages (including mainstream Asian languages) enabling foreign language text and images to be displayed.
Secure: to protect records and data, a three-tier security model is used: individual username and password for those with authorised access; a unique token is assigned to each user which displays an algorithmically generated number for login; and at a document level, managing the access of users or groups of users.
Low risk: the platform is fully managed by Deloitte. Assistance across all stages of an engagement/project is provided by experienced case managers, several of whom have extensive document management backgrounds in law firms and document management bureaus. A support desk service is also available to assist with user queries.
