Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
eTERA Consulting, nominated by the National Law Journal for two consecutive years as the nation’s top end-to-end eDiscovery provider and litigation consulting firm, today announced that it’s highly successful Opt1mum One program has been expanded to provide Managed Services to law firm clients. The eDiscovery and litigation support Managed Services solutions are scalable and delivers on providing efficiencies, cost control, risk reduction and data security for law firms.
Maria Herrera, eTERA’s Global Managing Director of Information and Technology Operations who served as Chief Information and Technology Officer at Patton Boggs for 15 years, said that “Opt1mum One Managed Services is a smart business decision for law firms especially in today’s environment where budget predictability, managing sensitive client data, and the need to leverage technology to gain a competitive advantage, is imperative. As a former law firm technology officer, I know firsthand the value of Managed Services; budget reduction, enhanced data security and a robust IT infrastructure.”
“Our Opt1mum One Managed Services solutions provide law firms with several key benefits,” said Todd Haley, eTERA’s Vice President of Business Intelligence who served as Chief Technology Officer at Spriggs and Hollingsworth for over 8 years. “Having served in the capacity of CTO for a law firm, I know the importance of cost certainty and managing IT risks. The attractiveness of Managed Services is having the ability to leverage leading technologies without any capital investments and enhancing in-house capabilities without enormous operational costs. As eTERA’s Chief Security Officer, I also understand how Managed Services can address the data security concerns of law firm CTOs that were reported in the recent 2013 AM Law Technology Survey.”
“As part of our commitment to educate law firms on the advantages and business benefits of Managed Services, eTERA will be writing a series of blogs, conducting webinars, and providing white papers,” added Bob Gillespie, eTERA’s Vice President of ESI and Chairman of the Managed Services Working Group. “There are several important program components to eTERA’s Optimum One Managed Services solutions, and our training and education initiatives will help clients better understand the economic upside. In speaking with law firm clients about Managed Services, we understand that client requirements will differ and one size does not fit all.”
