Today’s affordable and easy-to-use software-as-a-service (SaaS) eDiscovery platforms have eliminated the need for large, upfront capital expenditures to buy the necessary software. Almost 75% of the firms now have eDiscovery tools in-house.
“Ease of use” (36%), and “quality and accuracy” (36%) are the most important benchmarks when law firms evaluate an eDiscovery solution. Even when the respondents could change one thing about their current eDiscovery tool, “costs” would only come third.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and Technology Assisted Review (TAR) have revolutionized the legal profession. Advances in AI and TAR drastically increase the speed and improve the quality of the eDiscovery process, and smart, innovative law firms already discovered the benefit from the use of the latest analytic technologies to deliver higher quality services to their clients.
Not surprisingly, these are exactly the developments in eDiscovery that excite lawyers the most. Law firms with more than 100 lawyers are more excited: 79% versus 57% of the smaller firms (< 100 lawyers).
Interestingly time, cost saving and overall efficiency are named as most exciting benefits, for AI, TAR and Auto-classification.
