Courts exist as the final guarantor of justice but are increasingly challenged by complex paper-based processes, legacy systems, and rising case backlogs post-COVID.

RDO is unique in offering courts and mediators a configurable solution that is agnostic to case type and provides an integrated pathway to resolution for Negotiation, Mediation, and Trials.
