What kind of magic?
—> If you’ve only ever used eDiscovery: Imagine automating your search process so that you only saw the results you *had* to review.
—> If you’ve only ever used an archive: Imagine reducing your daily review time by 80%.
—> If you’ve never heard of either of these: Imagine a workplace where people were automatically informed if their communications could hurt them or their company and could be automatically prevented from creating them.
What you’re imagining: We invented it. It’s called Honcho. One compliance leader said to us, “If you could have cut open my brain to glimpse my vision of the perfect compliance system, this would be it.”
Why do we exist?
Because the rules of language and communication in our digital world are developing and changing by the minute.
Because digital platforms are the new watercooler, especially with remote work, and that’s a new liability that must be managed.
Because putting damaging communications into your archive is a silly (and risky) idea. You have to review them, they’re there for regulators, juries, and courts of public opinion to find and judge, and there’s no need for any of it.
Because annual training is outdated the moment it’s completed. It’s time-consuming, expensive, and ineffective compared to in-the-moment feedback.
Because you have no idea where people are communicating—at home, in the office, on email, or on Google Hangouts—but no matter where they do it, if it’s written, you’re on the hook.
Because workplace communications aren’t what they used to be, and if you keep doing things the old way, you’ll be left behind while your peers soar into the future.
Because of cc and bcc, most companies see multiple copies of each message. In every archive system, these each need to be reviewed individually. In ours, they’re reviewed once.
Because of disclaimers and signatures, most archive systems flag almost every message sent by anyone in compliance. Ours automatically skips unnecessarily flagging those.
Because of licensing agreements, most archives don’t let you change the lexicons. Ours lets you customize your system’s lexicon to fit your business.
Because of old technology, most archives just look at keywords. We can look at complex phrases, reducing false positives and saving you time.
Because of cumbersome data agreements, most archives only look at approved and known communications channels. Ours looks at any communication channel, automatically, on a company device.
