Avansic’s E-Discovery Readiness Assessment helps corporations dramatically reduce e-discovery costs. We are careful to consider the particular challenges of your specific industry and the documents you create. We designed this process to help prepare our customers for e-discovery ahead of time, and by doing so, reduce their costs and their lost productivity during litigation.
Often, small changes in IT processes ahead of litigation events can result in big e-discovery savings. For example, although tape backups work well for disaster recovery, it is a very laborious process to retrieve relevant e-discovery data. Other business applications, data repositories, and archiving solutions can have similar e-discovery consequences.
