The Delium Story
Delium is the marriage of tactics and technology to produce the best outcome for your client.
In 425 BC the Boeatians, allies of the Spartans, and Athenians were at war. The Athenians fought with greater numbers. The Boeatians, with lesser numbers, acted tactically, applied new technology and won – Delium was saved.
Delium continues the tradition of combining clever tactics and technology to help you win.
Tactics & Technology
The flame in our logo represents a flame thrower, innovative new technology used for the first time in the Battle of Delium.
The surrounding circle represents a new tactic and strategy used in the same Battle of keeping a reserve force ready to surround and overwhelm the opposition after the initial fray (eDiscovery) had been completed.
Patent Protected Functionality – Granted US, Australian and Canadian Patents
Delium includes two patented elements relating to “Evidentiary Information” and “Multiple Proceedings” which allow us to claim:
- Delium is the only eTrial product that can provide a truly paperless and personal electronic courtroom experience capable of being run by the legal teams.
- Delium is the most efficient eDiscovery software for managing multiple related cases, substantially saving effort and cost by minimizing duplication of processing and review effort
Presenting Evidentiary Information
Evidentiary Information Items Relating to Multiple Proceedings
Common Evidence Framework
In a variety of scenarios lawyers work with multiple related cases or claims that share some evidentiary materials (for example, class action types claims or litigation that becomes the subject of a Government Inquiry or Regulatory Review). Typically, in such cases, shared materials have both common objective information and unique case specific data and analysis.
Other litigation support databases manage each related collection individually, requiring significant duplication of effort and cost and resulting in a high likelihood of data errors and compromised analytical efforts.
Delium’s Common Evidence Module is different. This patent protected functionality stores the objective information for all documents into a single common case database and stores the unique subjective analysis in separate Satellite case databases. This approach allows for all evidence to be collected, objectively processed and stored once, reducing cost, effort and the likelihood of error whilst enhancing analytical outcomes.
