No, I’m not talking about Mikey’s love of Life cereal or even Sally Field’s Oscar speech — but the Cyber Advocate’s review of the eDiscovery Assistant app. The Cyber Advocate proclaimed the app “an incredibly valuable tool” regardless of “your level of experience with eDiscovery, from pure novice to experienced litigator”.
We love that that the Cyber Advocate was able to navigate the app easily and figure out that we’d designed it for two different audiences:
eDiscovery Assistant provides two different methods to help guide you through the eDiscovery process. For those who have little-to-no experience with eDiscovery, it provides a fully customizable roadmap for your case. For those litigators who feel more comfortable with eDiscovery generally but have specific areas of concern, eDiscovery Assistant provides every individual section from the roadmap as an a-la-carte option.
He also saw the true purpose of the software as we designed it — to be a toolkit for lawyers for eDiscovery:
There’s something to be said for an app that decides to do something relatively limited, and covers every nook and cranny of the subject. That’s what the eDiscovery Assistant provides. While it may seem basic to provide an eDiscovery checklist, the tools and lists provided are incredibly comprehensive and robust. The templates are remarkably thorough, and the tools for keeping the proper rules updated and available are impressive. Even the additions that seem like they would be afterthoughts, such as allowing the user to highlight only the portion of a rule applicable to eDiscovery, is well done.
Hop on over to Cyber Advocate to see the full review — and give eDiscovery Assistant a try yourself. We’ll be putting out some special pricing for Legaltech 2014 in NYC next week, so keep your eyes peeled — you never know when you’ll need to find that case or that rule on the fly when opposing counsel asks you why you’re entitled to ask for a particular form of production (hint: see Rule 34 or your state’s equivalent).
