Deploying a B2B e-commerce strategy is not easy, Headquartered in Chicago with offices worldwide, Relativity creates intuitive software that helps law firms, government agencies, financial institutions, and other major corporations quickly find the truth in data.

 

Relativity’s journey began in the e-discovery space and evolved to develop broader legal and compliance SaaS solutions like Relativity One and Relativity Trace. Relativity has more than 300,000 enabled users in 48+ countries serving thousands of organizations, including the US Department of Justice and 199 of the Am Law 200.

Background

  • Initially, Relativity leaders wanted to address testing bottlenecks related to their delivery cycle and the heavy regression testing burden that caused releases to be semi-annual.
  • Relativity needed to advance its platform to analyze an increasing amount of data for more customers and deliver new features more frequently.
  • At the same time, each update required rigorous testing to ensure their e-discovery platform continued to provide an exceptional user experience.
  • Relativity needed an experienced software testing partner and sought out Forte Group to fill that critical role to maintain its service quality at the highest level and increase overall testing efficiency across the organization.

Results achieved

  • Forte Group’s work evolved from a small test outsourcing engagement to a strategic collaboration that resulted in the ability to release high-quality software at an accelerated rate.
  • Throughout the six-year partnership, the Forte team became integral in delivering quality software to Relativity’s customers across the globe.
  • Together, the Forte Group team and Relativity achieved accelerated release frequency and developed a robust test automation framework that contributed to the regular release schedule and reduced the time spent on regression testing by as much as 83 percent.


    “Over six years, Forte Group has partnered with Relativity to continuously improve our quality and testing practices. Most importantly, they are an integral part of our ability to accelerate the delivery of high-quality software to our customers.”
