Ease of Use
Pros: I like the fact that managing my documents and various database across all platforms can be easily synced on one platform. No need to worry about SQL, crazy Excel sheets etc. Setting up was fast and easy. More remarkably, interns in my office got a hang of it in a short time
Cons: To be honest, there is nothing I found to be bad about this software. When I find, I'll be happy to share with the team at Eclipse

Power to the law firm people; take it back from the expensive hosting solutions
Comments: When firms are billing clients hundreds of thousands for expensive cloud-based consulting and hosting, along comes flat-file Eclipse SE to show lawyers how superb and much better an inexpensive in-house solution can be. Yet it also comes with upgrade potential to cloud-based SQL Eclipse if you need that later or in parallel for the gigantic matter. Few matters are so enormous that they can't be handled in Eclipse SE. This is soup to nuts: from native .pdf collections or acquired load files to document reviews and tagging; to processing in the background while you do other work; to review; to on-the-spot dep prep and printouts for exhibits; to retrieving trial exhibits; to generating load files and publishing .tif images. You get electronic documents from your client and within as few as a couple of hours you can serve your bates-stamped document production fully featured with load files in all of the formats. A very fine degree of control over what you want to OCR; where you want to store; how you and your team reviews and tags; and what you want to produce. An optional "publish" module allows you to publish part of the database as a run-time to your experts, clients whatever. And recently, another optional module to process duplicates (while this duplicate processing is currently more expensive, it still is a much better deal than the licensing-hosting). Belongs on every user's desktop, and is priced accordingly. The only negative is that except for published databases, you need data on a central server for access by multiple persons and an inexpensive remote access program to access the platformed program from outside of the office.
Pros: Extraordinarily powerful, soup to nuts. IPRO has everything covered. Fast and accurate. Concurrent licensing and inexpensive. Fantastic documentation and very solid and responsive customer support included with the licensing.
Cons: The duplication processing software is a separate module and its licensing is currently over three times the basic license. Also, with the power comes a bit of complexity but it is extraordinarily well documented so you can look up your issues.

One of the best ediscovery tools eCapture
Comments: Ediscovery problems for clients can be solved efficiently with the software.
Pros: Since this is a processing tool, it is very apt and fast at providing results for processing and discovery of data for the Electronic Discovery domain. The main advantage of the software is its reliability and very less error quotient in results compared to other products in the market.
Cons: Since the software is designed to be without any central control or an online console like a web UI, it's difficult for a new professional to understand its working and process flow, the infrastructure setup behind the whole machinery and how each part of it is integrated to the other and how they function together. This is from the perspective of maintaining the tool and solving issue and errors encountered in its run.

Automated Raw to Review
Comments: Overall, we are very pleased with the product, and its the scalability. Support is responsive and available 24/7 for emergencies only. We are very anxious to see some type of automated mass redaction solution within Ipro, in the likes of MILYLI Blackout for Relativity.
Pros: Before Ipro for Enterprise, admins needed to ingest raw data, index, run search terms, process the hits, and load to review platform. It was a lot of human intervention to babysit and move the data through each step. With Ipro, all the data gets processed and everything that gets successfully processed are imported to the review platform without any human intervention. This has helped us saved us 100's of hours and move raw data to review.
1) Eclipse only runs on Internet Explorer and user interface was very much cluttered and non-intuitive (based on feedback from the field).
2) Not much visualization options to be able to analyze data visually and interactively.

Version 2019.6.1 - 2
We find it not developing but dissolving into non-existence. No new features are seen in the software, old working features are missing.
Sorry, if I have come across harsh, but that is the reality. Hope you will take it right sprite. Any other review Applications are leaps and bounds or should I say LIGHT YEARS ahead and not even talking about Relativity. It would be very sad to see IPRO ADD(Eclipse & eCapture) has the same fate as Summation.
Pros: Short learning curve, ease for lawyers to the review
It looks like removing stable working existing functionalities without any replacement for those has become a norm in IPRO, which is very sad and heart breaking.
Bring in the replacement functionalities 1st and then remove the existing time tested working functionalities. If this continues, than for sure IPRO would lose its credibility.
Flex processor is missing from streaming. Without flex processor, streaming does a very LAME job. The jobs processed with flex processor are more proper and garbage data is weeded out, instead, current streaming way of loading them in Review(another broken interface) and dealing it there.
Printing documents from grid is missing
Case assignment to users is so tedious and time taking, feel like stop using the software completely.
With this new interface, Eclipse is the least liked and recommended software.

Software that does the job
Comments: Have used for many years. Will continue to use for many more.
Pros: The software is straight forward for the user. It provides nice views for review and can handle lots of batches and reviewers. Unknown to most, it has a nice transcript handler.
Cons: The features are a little of everywhere. You can't do a thing in just one place.

Lit Support Reviewer
Comments: We are using Eclipse software to review and tag documents for trial prep.
Pros: I love the software functionality. I think it is very user friendly.
Cons: I think the dashboard itself needs to be adjusted to be more appealing to the eyes. Also to be able to save your functions.

Easiest tool with the least amount of setup
Comments: Eclipse SE is a great non sql based desktop application that can service all your ediscovery processing and review needs. Eclipse SE is the perfect application for law firms looking to move their litigation support in house without having to build a server infrastructure to support it. With it being a desktop application it is not built to handle gigantic matters but if you get that matter you can seamlessly upgrade your existing case in Eclipse SE to sql based Eclipse Web.

Not Particularly User Friendly
Pros: The platform has the capability of having multiple review panels for different document populations within a single database. That is the best feature of this platform.
Cons: From a reviewer's perspective, this is not a user-friendly document review platform. There are several steps to get to the review panel and they are not particularly intuitive. There are boxes that must be checked on one screen to make certain documents are visible once in the review panel, but there is no indicator to alert the reviewer. Additionally, even though there can be different review panels within a single database, once in the review screen, a reviewer could select the incorrect coding pane and there is no fail safe to prevent it. There is also no way to easily sort reviewed documents by category, so QC is basically non-existent.
