One of the best things about shopping on Amazon is that you can get just about anything. Looking for a book or a movie to fill an unscheduled evening? Of course it has those. How about a pair of pajamas to wear? No problem. Maybe you need a comfy sofa to sit on while you read or a TV to watch your movie on? And don’t forget some chocolate and a bottle of wine to complete your evening!
In the not-always-so-good old days, you would’ve needed to visit four or five stores to complete that shopping list. Now, not only does Amazon sell practically anything you may want, but it also makes shopping effortless. You only have to enter your credit card information and your shipping address once. It’s easy to track pending orders or search every order you’ve ever placed, and you know exactly who to contact when you have a problem or you need to return something.
You’re probably well aware of the advantages of one-stop shopping when it comes to your personal life. What you may not realize is that the same advantages apply to the way you handle eDiscovery. End-to-end eDiscovery solutions offer a customized approach, seamless transitions between eDiscovery stages, and lower, more transparent costs.
Customize Your eDiscovery Approach With an Expert Partner
Your business has unique eDiscovery needs that depend on your industry; the quantity, formats, and locations of data that you generate; the types of litigation you face; and the experience and sophistication of your custodians and your legal department. Many businesses try to meet those needs by cobbling together multiple applications and processes, each focused on a single aspect of eDiscovery, from legal holds and data collection to early case assessment, data processing, review, and eventual production. But that mishmash approach means working with multiple vendors, trying to resolve integration problems between multiple players, and paying multiple bills.
By working with a single experienced eDiscovery partner offering end-to-end eDiscovery services, you can eliminate all of those hassles. Unlike point-solution vendors that each focus on a single slice of the overall eDiscovery pie, a full-service eDiscovery provider has the expertise to take your project from start to finish. With end-to-end eDiscovery, you can select the components and approaches that you need to optimize your organization’s success. And with one vendor, you’ll always know the right people to contact when you have questions—and they’ll know everything about how your eDiscovery process works.
Transition Seamlessly Between eDiscovery Stages
The eDiscovery process is, by its very nature, iterative and cyclic. You may jump from data collection to processing, back to collection, and then forward to review before swinging back to collection again. With individual point solutions, that means transitioning data and changing tools over and over. And often, those tools don’t work well together, adding cumbersome and unnecessary “translation” steps every time you switch to working in a different stage.
When an end-to-end eDiscovery provider handles every stage of the process, you never have to worry about where you are in the pipeline. Your data doesn’t have to be moved, formatted, or transitioned into a different application. You can follow your process wherever it needs to go without worrying about losing time in the transitions or forcing poorly integrated products to work together. Seamless transitions save more than time; they can save your sanity too.
Lower Your Overall Costs and Enjoy Transparent Pricing
When you work with multiple vendors, you have to pay multiple vendors! That means more bills that add up to more overall expense. But it gets worse: with multiple vendors, each charging you to access a single-point solution, it’s hard to know what you’re paying for and what you’re getting for it. End-to-end eDiscovery lets you pay one—lower—bill, and you’ll always know exactly what you’re spending your budget on.
Don’t run all over town looking for individual parts of your eDiscovery puzzle. Instead, tap in to one-stop eDiscovery by working with a trusted end-to-end provider. Ready to learn more? Please contact us to see what your customized solution might look like.
