It severely increases your data security risks, and it’s very costly. Additionally, it may not always be complete by your deadlines, forcing you to either take shortcuts that could add to the risk or ask for an extension that the court may or may not grant.
What’s the alternative that can alleviate these pain points? eDiscovery software that’s easy to use and empowers your in-house staff to control the process.
Launching an In-House eDiscovery Program
Having trepidation about moving eDiscovery in-house is normal. There are big questions likely holding you back from taking the first steps toward a true end-to-end eDiscovery solution, such as:
- Are you concerned about resources?
- Do you have apprehension about your IT infrastructure?
- Are your discovery needs specialized, and an off-the-shelf version isn’t a good fit?
- Do you have concerns about aggregating data in different formats and from various sources?
With the right platform, these challenges don’t have to impede your ability to deploy an eDiscovery solution. In fact, you’ll find many more benefits to adopting software versus keeping your process as is.
