Clients are frustrated with the lack of transparency, difficulty comparing vendor pricing, and the challenges of controlling and budgeting EDD related costs.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 30, 2012
eTERA Consulting today announced the enhancement of its successful Intell1gent One service that combines dynamic data metrics reporting with a transparent electronic data reduction process that provides clients with input and insight into the overall effectiveness of data filtering. Intell1gent One is designed to allow clients to “see” the process and tweak eTERA’s data filtering system to eliminate up to 95% of the data prior to document review resulting in significant savings in downstream attorney review costs.
“Clients are frustrated with the lack of transparency, difficulty comparing vendor pricing, and the challenges of controlling and budgeting EDD related costs,” said company president Scott Holec. “Intell1gent One provides clients with effective data reduction strategies, meaningful data reporting, complete transparency and engagement throughout the EDD process, ROI reporting on the impact of decisions, and experienced industry subject matter experts. Intell1gent One also provides a number of service options for clients including Early Information Assessment®, legal hold, preservation and collection, ESI targeting and filtering, hosted review and production services. We also leverage several leading technologies relating to information management, processing and analytics, and document review.”
“The only full proof way to reduce EDD costs is to eliminate irrelevant data early in the process,” said Todd Haley, eTERA’s Vice President of eDiscovery. “Numerous studies have shown that the most expensive phase in the EDRM model is document review which can exceed $10,000 per GB. By combining search expertise, smart data analysis, dynamic reporting on data metrics and best-of breed technology, Intell1gent One has proven to reduce data by over 95%. Our unique approach has saved clients an average of $15 for every $1 spent on the EDD process. These cost savings are a direct result of helping clients to understand the data in order to make smart decisions. As clients recognize, analytics and data interpretation is meaningful but takes talented and experienced subject matter experts.”
“To help our clients see the value and benefits of Intell1gent One, we provide them with a virtual tour,” said Mr. Holec. “The virtual tours promote transparency in our processes and establishes trust and confidence with clients. Our bottom line is to help attorneys and litigation support professionals leverage the reporting tools and technology available to them in order to make smart EDD business decisions on behalf of their clients. We find that seeing is believing and demonstrates how to achieve ROI.”
