Often explanations of the e-discovery process describe lots of steps, complexity and detail. In many cases, and for many of the different roles played in e-discovery, this is necessary for the end result to be accurate and defensible. We at VeDISCOVERY™ are good at complexity and esoterics, too. Yet we also appreciate the elegance of simplicity. So, while we know the devil is in the details, we believe the process of a defensible and cost effective e-discovery process can be simplified. A simplified process increases understanding, usability and defensibility while decreasing costs.
The typical e-discovery process can be distilled down to three main steps: data hold, data analysis (ECA), and document review/production. And, by necessity, this process follows the lifecycle of any litigation. We have structured our product offerings and pricing to follow the natural progression of litigation.
At the first reasonable expectation of litigation, there is a need to identify, protect and filter any data potentially relevant to a matter. These steps prevent spoliation. This is the litigation hold phase. As the litigation proceeds beyond hold, there’s often need for more information about the matter, information that may be useful in preparing for a Rule 26 meet and confer or for understanding the costs of a full review, or even whether to settle or litigate. This latter process is the data analytics or early case assessment (ECA) phase.
If a matter progresses to court, you might need a full-blown review and production tool to assist with the third phase of e-discovery, the document review phase.
For any litigation that makes it all the way to court, an effective eDiscovery process must have a complete solutions set for accommodating (supporting?) each step of this process. At VeDISCOVERY we have designed product to match each of these litigation steps. Our VeHOLD™, VeANALYTICS™, and VeREVIEW™ solutions, when used together, offer a complete e-discovery solution that is defensible, reduces costs and increases control of the e-discovery process.
Each of these solutions can also stand-alone. Since the majority of cases never get to the review phase, we understand that it doesn’t make fiscal sense to pay for functionality you don’t need. So, if you have matters in hold, and hold is all you need, we have a leading-edge solution: VeHOLD.
If you need an ECA solution to accurately predict the costs of a full review and prepare for a Rule 26 meet and confer, VeANALYTICS is the solution you need.
If you have a matter that ends up going to court, or at least, is getting close, you need full review and production capabilities. VeREVIEW is your answer. Each of these solutions can be added just-in-time, savings you thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars, compared to most e-discovery solutions on the market.
Also, if you have data in another competitors’ hold or ECA product, we can still handle it. Our solutions have the flexibility to work with our competitors’ products.
VeDISCOVERY ‘s simplified offering has this key advantage: your costs will align with where you are in your litigation lifecycle. We will not ask you to pay for software you don’t need. Our pricing is also structured so you pay a flat rate based on the amount of data you have in the system at every phase of the EDD lifecycle. This stabilizes pricing.
Whether you use the complete solution or an individual solution, each one is designed to be easy understand, easy to use, defensible and robust. Contact Us Today!
