4 reasons you should switch to RelativityOne

| Written by Altlaw

In the world of eDiscovery software, RelativityOne is quickly gaining traction as the go-to platform for legal teams worldwide.

Its range of tools and features enables legal professionals to handle large volumes of unstructured data securely and efficiently, speeding up the review stage and facilitating more streamlined litigation processes.

In this blog post, we'll explore the ins and outs of RelativityOne and explain why you should consider adopting it for your litigation needs.


What is RelativityOne?

As the first fully cloud-based eDiscovery software, RelativityOne offers a range of benefits that have made it a popular choice for law firms, corporations and government agencies worldwide.

It empowers you to store and control millions of documents across any number of devices from a single, easy-to-use interface. Put simply, it helps you handle data more effectively. That means smarter and faster leveraging of electronically-stored information (ESI), leading to quicker and more informed decisions.

RelativityOne offers several tools which can level up your litigation processes, meaning less time manually reviewing data and more time to focus on growing your business.


Reasons you should switch to RelativityOne

RelativityOne is Relativity's fastest, most powerful, up-to-date and secure eDiscovery platform for handling unstructured data. Its cloud-driven capabilities can unlock several efficiencies, improve productivity and add value to your business.

Here are some main reasons to consider adopting it for litigation, information governance or internal investigations.



Security should be front-of-mind for any legal team and RelativityOne takes the matter very seriously. Hosted on Microsoft Azure — one of the most secure cloud computing environments available today — RelativityOne is a complete and secure solution for eDiscovery.

Azure provides built-in security features such as multi-factor authentication and continuous monitoring to detect and respond to security threats and encryption.

Alongside hosting on the Azure platform, RelativityOne has added security measures to add extra layers of protection to your data. Features such as role-based access controls, IP address restrictions and data retention management help protect your sensitive legal data from unauthorised access, both during review and in storage.


Scalability and flexibility

By leveraging cloud-based technology, RelativityOne can bring scalability and flexibility potential to your business. With traditional, on-premise software, your processes are limited by the available hardware, which can significantly constrain your ability to handle complex cases or those with large amounts of data.

With RelativityOne, that's not the case. As it's cloud-based, you'll have access to a wide range of computing resources, meaning you can scale up or down depending on your software needs or case requirements.

RelativityOne's flexibility enables you to collaborate with other team members, regardless of location. As RelativityOne is cloud-based, you can access it from anywhere with an internet connection, allowing you to share data and collaborate with your team in real time. 

You can now access RelativityOne from your mobile with the RelativityOne mobile app, adding extra flexibility to your processes.


New call-to-action


Automation capabilities

Another way to facilitate the scaling of your business is by automating your reviews. As litigation grows more challenging with increasing amounts of data involved in modern cases, internal resources can be limited.

That's where automation can help. Moving away from time-consuming, manual processes can save time in your day and allow your internal resources to reach further. 

Some ways that RelativityOne can speed up reviews are:

  • Automated elimination of irrelevant information
  • Capturing metadata
  • Redacting sensitive information

Eliminating the burden of repetitive tasks allows you to scale your business, keep costs under control, reduce errors and increase productivity.


Disaster recovery and platform resilience

RelativityOne also offers robust platform resilience and disaster recovery capabilities.

The presence of an effective disaster recovery process is a capability all eDiscovery platforms must possess. However, you will find that RelativityOne takes this a step further.

With traditional, on-premise software, disaster recovery is often left to the internal IT team, significantly burdening their resources.

With RelativityOne, backups are handled by the software provider, meaning you can be confident your data is always secure and accessible.

The platform provides multiple layers of backup protection, including recovery methods and daily data backups. In the event of a disaster or data outage, your information will always be available.

RelativityOne works on the Microsoft Azure cloud, the most resilient and secure cloud platform in the world. This platform, and its in-built redundancies, work to negate the need for a disaster recovery process altogether.  

Microsoft Azure boasts an extraordinary number of compliance certifications, both globally applicable and region-specific, including ISO 27001. This ensures that no matter what ‘location’ you are hosting your data in, you can be sure it is safe and protected.   

As well as offering first-class data security, the cloud allows the RelativityOne platform to be instantly scalable to adapt to your changing case needs.
