Many corporate and law firm clients face multiple sequential matters where the same custodians or data sets must be repeatedly collected, processed, reviewed and produced. Attorney work product and case data can become segregated within different applications for processing or review, so clients are unable to proactively leverage this information from one matter to the next. As a result, clients must replicate expensive tasks and processes for each new matter, resulting in higher costs, time delays, and increased risk exposure.
Daegis Cross-Matter Management is a proactive approach to managing eDiscovery that ensures an efficient and consistent discovery response across multiple matters. Instead of a narrow focus on discrete phases of the eDiscovery lifecycle and individual cases, Cross-Matter Management integrates eDiscovery processes across a series of matters. This holistic methodology for managing eDiscovery aligns technology with business processes, resulting in savings of more than 30%.
A key element of Cross-Matter Management is the Master Repository. The Master Repository serves as a central location where clients can retain, view and reuse custodian data and attorney work product collected across multiple matters. The Master Repository captures decisions made regarding data responsiveness, privilege, and confidentiality. Clients are able to track which documents were produced without having to re-collect or re-process the same information.
- Cost Savings of 30% or more through elimination of duplicative collection, processing and hosting fees in new matters and reuse of previously collected coding determinations.
- Time Savings as data is made immediately available for search and analysis or can be efficiently moved to document review without the need to export and re-import.
- Risk Reduction by retaining prior production history and ensuring there are no data fidelity issues or inconsistent production sets.
