E-Discovery software company Relativity announces the release of its Aero user interface this week, a sleek, powerful new way to navigate documents and data on the industry-leading electronic discovery platform. I recently spent some time with the production team and was allowed to see an early demonstration of the new UI. Since I haven’t been in the Relativity workspace for a few years, I’ve learned some things, I think users will also appreciate the new developments.
Remember all those tabs on the interface? Gone Do you remember how to scroll or select another object to see more options? Gone are the Us tabs moved to the left of the interface, which can only be described as a more functional navigation window. Click the small hamburger icon on the bottom left է it opens all the menu options.
Available to some customers in August A With greater availability this month, Aero will be introduced primarily in the Relativity One environment.
I clicked on the Relativity team to create Aero Aero. For me, the name evokes thoughts of flight, spaciousness, maybe speed. For the Relativity development team, the name Aero is not just a marketing fluff. “This is the biggest product update in the company’s history,” Relativity Group Manager Kyle Disterheft told me. “It simply came to our notice then. This is the first issue in which we show how great the user experience is. “Aero has the most new features of any previous release, it has been tested more widely,” added Disterheft. Currently, more than 6,000 new desktops containing more than 700,000 documents use the new Aero UI.
Aero is the pinnacle of ideas that help tell how Relativity designs and builds software. From what I saw in the new UI, it turned out that a much better, faster, more intuitive navigation was in mind. “We literally measured the linear feet of the required mouse movement to navigate faster,” said Disterheft.
Putting navigation aside, Relativity has also completely redesigned the viewer to improve performance. The new architecture allows the viewer to instantly load the first few pages of the document while the rest of the document flows behind the scenes. This improves the loading time of documents և makes page-by-page navigation almost instantaneous. Relativity reports that average document bounce speeds have improved from 3.8 to 0.4 seconds, with eggs now loading 40% faster.
I asked Liz Lieberman, Relativity Product Marketing Manager, to describe some of the tangible differences that users will see in Aero. “Modern-day aesthetics, next-generation TV viewers, better workflow, faster performance.”
During the demo session, I came across a number of aesthetic changes. Except for new fonts, colors, icons, layouts, all pages have been updated. “We just refreshed the look and feel,” Lieberman said. “We’ve also improved the way users navigate through pages նրանք how they perform tasks. “Everyone is following a more logical workflow,” he added. “And finally, we will automate tasks such as food intake, processing և OCR.”
Do not take my word for it. I also talked to Relativity with some customers who have been using Aero UI for several months. Liraz Kolnik, Control Risks’ head of electronic detection operations, described the Aero as faster, more stable and easier to navigate. “Aero’s design is smooth և makes the platform easier to use. The quality of life in the system through the Aero UI is much higher. Only navigation is significantly superior, allowing the user to navigate the work area more clearly and precisely.
In a press release, Chris Brown, CEO of Relativity Products, said that one of the goals of the Aero UI is to improve the user experience by working with customers to improve the UI. Matthew Nelson, director of litigation support for Littler Mendelson, said: “The Aero team has really done a lot of design work, as it has responded to user feedback and suggestions.” Collink of Control Risks also praised the Relativity development team for working closely with this team լս for feedback.
Others also praise the Aero UI. Array (formerly Innovative Trials) Customer Service Director Enna Rooney was incredibly enthusiastic. His team has been using the Aero UI since April. “The relationship has undergone incredible changes and improvements,” he said. “Ease of use, fewer buttons; “Improved functionality is a game changer.”
True, I have not used the Relativity workspace for several years. But from what I saw during the show, from what I learned from those I spoke to over the past few weeks, it seems that Relativity has hit the new success of software development in which customers have a voice.
