Discovery Genie is a unique, patented eDiscovery software. Most eDiscovery systems are designed for large cases to manage hundreds of thousands or millions of documents. These systems store the litigation documents from all parties and are the only way to access evidence for the case. These platforms are prohibitively expensive for the 90% of cases that have fewer than 5000 documents.
Even worse, these eDiscovery platforms are notoriously opaque about their pricing. Their websites advertise a modest-sounding upload and storage charge—often $20 per GB as an upload charge. But this charge is only a fraction of the actual cost: in addition to the upload charges, eDiscovery systems charge monthly storage fees for the duration of the case, often another $20 per GB per month. While some cases might settle soon after electronic records are uploaded, other cases persist for years, including appeals. These recurring charges are based not only on the client’s records, but also the opposing party’s (and any third party’s) documents—every month for the entire duration of the case. If a firm chooses to end the case, its data is deleted, along with all the work that went into coding, tagging, reviewing and managing the documents.
Discovery Genie is different: we are completely transparent about our pricing. We charge a standard price for the documents you actually process—with no additional or hidden fees. We offer complete predictability and transparency, so you know exactly what the charges will be.
eDiscovery software often involves significant overhead for a firm. Many eDiscovery platforms require an annual subscription/licensing charge, which is often upward of $2000-$5000 per user every year. In addition, the actual cost of eDiscovery software must include the costs to the firm’s personnel to operate the system. The most sophisticated platforms have weeks-long training programs, and additional training whenever there is a new release, which means firms using those systems typically have dedicated staff just to manage the eDiscovery system. Some of this time might be billed to clients, but some is firm overhead, which is enormous. Unlike other eDiscovery software, Discovery Genie is simple, intuitive, and imposes zero overhead on its users.
