After a decade of experience in the eDiscovery industry, we noticed smaller firms and sole proprietors didn’t have easy access to eDiscovery tools such as kCura’s Relativity®. We believe that legal teams of all sizes should have access to powerful eDiscovery tools. That’s why we built WIND.
WIND gives legal practitioners access to Relativity, the industry’s leading document processing and review tool. On the WIND portal, you can place all electronic data relevant to your case into Relativity, a platform that will allow you to sort through and mark-up the electronic data.
The volume of electronic data continues to grow exponentially. Data can come from a variety of sources, including e-mails, phone calls, computer files, applications, and social networks. Consequently, it has become nearly impossible to analyze all this data efficiently without an eDiscovery platform such as Relativity.
Are there emails involved in your case? Phone calls? Computer files? If so, you need eDiscovery.
WIND gives legal practitioners access to powerful tools that require some degree of tech know-how. WIND is great for people who have used Relativity before, or for those who are tech savvy and ready to learn how to use an eDiscovery platform like Relativity.
Once you have gathered all of your case data, upload your data to WIND. WIND will then take all of your case data and make the text fully searchable, and will also let you sort through data based on metadata, or a number of other metadata factors.
WIND has a set of resources that are constantly expanding. We provide you with information and tutorials so you can make the most of WIND, and your electronic data.
We can also provide one-on-one training for a fee. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for Relativity training by one of our Relativity Certified Administrators for $99 per hour.
You can sign up for WIND simply by clicking LOGIN at the top right of the screen or by clicking here to create an account. Signing up for WIND is easy–all you need is a credit card. No salespeople. No invoices.
WIND is $299 per month. This gives you one Relativity user license and 25GB of processing and hosting space. WIND is billed month-to-month. There are no long-term contracts.
Need more than one Relativity user license? Each additional license is $99 per month.
Need more than 25GB of space? For an additional $99 per month you get an extra 25GB of space.
No, not at this time.
WIND comes with:
- 25 GB of space – No charges for processing, hosting, or uploading. Just 25 GB of your data made reviewable in Relativity.
- Relativity 9 – The world’s most powerful document review platform, usable on all major browsers.
- Tools to make the most out of your data – We’re giving you all that you need to make the most out of WIND, such as template briefs requesting electronic data.
Some data, like PDFs, have lots of searchable information, but are missing some really helpful data, such as when a file was created or, who created the file. During the discovery phase, you can ask opposing counsel for data that is rich in metadata through our template brief. Remember, this is just a template; please make sure you adjust it to your specific case.
You just need one membership. You can have different workspaces for different clients and/or cases. You can also purchase additional Relativity user licenses for your clients at $99 per user per month.
WIND is a payment and upload platform that provides access to Relativity. If you would like to see how Relativity works, you may take a look at this approximately 10 minute demo video we created for a client. To get a general sense of how WIND works, please take a look at this 1 minute video. We do not offer a free trial at this time.
WIND was designed as a Do-it-Yourself (DIY) service. Therefore, the basic WIND membership does not include technical support or training. However, we do provide one-on-one Relativity training for $99 per hour, and Tech Time for $175 per hour. Training is provided by one of our Relativity Certified Administrators.
You may also purchase tech time in bundles. Please contact us at email@example.com for bundle pricing.
The following services are included in tech time:
- Create DAT/OPT if missing
- Fix DAT file, OPT
- Convert images to correct format (8 Bits to 1 Bit)
- Correct format: Group IV single page Tiff images
- OCR documents if text files are missing
- Custom workflows for Relativity features
The most effective and efficient way to upload documents is in large chunks. You can consolidate your files through .zip files.
We currently limit file uploads to 20GB as upload issues can present themselves for uploads larger than 20GB. If you need to break down your files into smaller sizes, recent versions of Windows and Mac have it built in. Otherwise, you can use 7z.
The typical turnaround time for data is 24 hours from when it has been uploaded. After you have uploaded your data, we use our data processing recipe to extract the important information from your data.
Metadata is “data about data.” Metadata tells you who created a file, or who sent an email, and when they created or sent that document. It can also tell you where a document is stored on a user’s system or the geographic location a picture was taken. It’s hugely helpful in telling your data’s story.
The 25GB includes data uploaded. Say you sent WIND 10GB of data, and by the time it was processed, uploaded, and hosted on Relativity, it expanded to 15GB. That would mean you have used 10 out of 25GB. If you deleted those 10GB, then you would have your full 25GB of space.
You can upload various archive formats via the WIND dashboard. These include:
Additionally, we accept multi-part archive files that end in the following formats:
- .z01, .z02, .z03, etc.
- .001, .002, .003, etc.
- Or any of multi-part zip that ends with its file extension. E.g., file.001.zip, file.002.zip, etc.

WIND uses Relativity 9.5.
WIND provides access to Relativity, which is an extremely powerful, but complex software. Unless you have a litigation support team in house who is familiar with Relativity, tech time is highly recommended. WIND is a DIY service, and works great for tech savvy firms who are just receiving productions from opposing counsel. However, it can become challenging when you have to collect data from your clients, and manage a document review project.
Additional features, such as e-mail threading and Analytics, are not included in the basic WIND membership.
