Moving beyond the benchmark set in Craig Ball’s well-conceived challenge, we wanted to talk about some additional benefits our customers are seeing from using our technology.
Integrated Through Trial
First but not least, is seamless integration into the litigation specific functionality built into our Trial Cloud, recognized as one of the best options available for trial preparation.
At any point, EDna and Vincent could migrate their productions – along with those of opposing parties – and integrate the document data with a deposition transcript handler and trial presentation functionality. This creates a single search engine for their case and greatly increases their efficiency in finding key pieces of evidence.
Preserving the ability to vigorously litigate a case. Isn’t that what this all about in the first place? Please feel free to check out our product site and our support site for additional detail on the functionality of this industry-leading application.
Software-as-a-Service Is The Future
Of course there are the benefits of using software-as-a-service, versus legacy client/server and local install packages. It is a hugely significant shift in the technology landscape, and it is because the benefits that flow from this technology model are so compelling. Benefits such as:
Security. Real Security.
If EDna and Vincent are concerned about the protection of their data, they should take a lesson from the attorneys for former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, whose offices were broken into, and laptops stolen. There is no substitute for having data in SAS70 Type II compliant data centers, and mythology of law firm security is being quickly eroded. Check out trust.nextpoint.com for additional information.
Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan Built In
EDna will save lots of money and Vincent will have one less thing to worry about as their data is automatically backed up with no additional effort or cost on their part. These kinds of mission-critical operational activities are often overlooked by small and mid-sized businesses who simply do not have the time or resources to do the planning, testing and monitoring required for effective disaster recovery and business continuity plans. Even large enterprises, who are (or should be) spending millions of dollars to have a robust business continuity plan in place realize the ability to tell their employees to find a safe location from which to log-on and get to work is the best possible continuity plan possible.
Nextpoint moved our products to the cloud for a very simple reason – we had to. There was no way we could build storage and processing capacity to keep up with our customers’ needs. For EDna, getting a substantial new matter shouldn’t require a substantial overhead investment before generating any revenue.
I’ve detailed in the previous two posts the tremendous cost compressions we’re bringing to the market. Software-as-a-service realizes the potential of the internet to compress the costs of managing and distributing information. We’re bringing an entirely new value proposition to small and mid-sized law firms.
EDna didn’t become a lawyer to wrestle with a PST. She is now freed from managing technology resources and coordinating vendors so she can concentrate her energy on what she loves doing – practicing law.
We’ve taken and met the EDna challenge. Any other takers?
A special thank you to Craig Ball for the great article and his generous contributions to the legal industry.
