I highly encourage everyone to register for a Webinar from Orange Legal Technologies happening this Thursday, Oct. 23, at 1pm EST. The Webinar is entitled “Comparing Apples and Oranges?” and will address the confusing issues involved with accurately estimating the costs in e-discovery.
Orange Legal Technologies recently posted their “Pricing Estimation Tool” on their Website which is an excellent tool that provides at least a framework for estimating the costs in e-discovery projects today. As far as I know, this is the only e-discovery vendor to offer any kind of tool like this, and I applaud Orange for doing so.
One of the most common complaints I hear from attorneys and litigation support professionals is that it’s so incredibly hard to get an accurate cost esitmate from vendors because everyone prices on different terms and models. Orange’s Pricing Estimation Tool may not be perfect (and perhaps a little biased towards their own services), but at least it’s start.
The Webinar features my good friend Tom O’Connor who will most certainly provide a balanced and experienced voice on the topic.
