AccessData's eDiscovery now available on demand
New payment terms in response to customers looking to reduce CAPEX
AccessData Group has launched a pair of eDiscovery service offerings, designed to provide application support and managed services on demand for corporate and law customers.
The first new model is on-demand application support, which provides the ability to run a matter through AccessData's Summation eDiscovery platform for a monthly fee. The second is a managed service offering that offers use of Summation paid for on a per-gigabyte basis.
AccessData said that the offerings were in response to customers looking to reduce their capital expenditures and adopt more controllable operational expense models.
"With corporate legal budgets under pressure, it's important that our customers have a variety of options that allow them to choose the service model that works best for them given the unique circumstances of each matter," said Keith Schrodt, director of product marketing and strategy for AccessData.
"With the new service offerings we're rolling out this week, our customers now have four different approaches from which to choose in order to meet their eDiscovery requirements."
The company also unveiled an offering called Summation Appliance, an eDiscovery package that includes the necessary hardware bundled with the Summation software. The package is drop-shipped to the customer with everything pre-installed, pre-configured and ready to go, AccessData said.
For this offering, there are three tiered options, designed for either small firms, medium to large firms, or large firms and corporations.
AccessData added that it would continue to offer access to Summation with its traditional software business model, in which customers purchase a subscription to license the use of the software platform.
"By offering our customers four unique ways to deploy our eDiscovery review technology platform, we've adapted our business models to the changes in the marketplace and created a variety of flexible approaches that align with the litigation budget pressures faced by law firms and corporate legal departments," said Schrodt.
