Reduce the cost of managed review while maintaining high quality standards
In 2018 the company needed to reduce overall costs and was willing to consider creative solutions, but without compromising on review quality and defensibility.
The company was impressed with Epiq’s reputation for high quality review management. What sealed the deal, however, was Epiq’s willingness to run a pilot program to ensure the client was thoroughly happy with the proposed geographically-blended review process and outcomes.
Leveraging the strengths of teams based in New York and India, Epiq created a hybrid review model that utilizes a 24-hour cycle
The New York team performs all tasks related to early case assessment, quality control, review protocol drafting, reporting and review management, applying the same standards, structure and format used for US-based reviews. The India team performs review, redactions and any necessary privilege logging, using standard client coding layout and facilitated questions through the team lead in New York.
Utilizing a 24-hour cycle, the India review team works during the day in India, then hands off the work to the team in New York for quality control and reporting. All team meetings and training calls are scheduled with both teams at 7:00 AM ET to accommodate schedules in New York and India.
