Eclipse TAR analyzes and categorizes documents to make the document review process more efficient and cost-effective.
Eclipse’s analytics engine prioritizes documents based on relevance through small sample sets. Verify the sample set, and then Eclipse sort the population into categories, leaving irrelevant documents uncategorized. This innovative document categorization technology allows law firms and organizations to achieve better reviews faster.
