CaseCentral Improves Early Case Assessments, Introduces Scenario TestingSince the release of the fourth version of their first multi-case, multi-party eDiscovery review platform with process analytics, CaseCentral (news, site) has been hard at work simplifying the way early case assessments are managed.

Today, they offer an Early Case Assessment (ECA) offering that is seamlessly integrated with the eDiscovery review platform, eliminating the need to export data to another tool for ECA analysis.


Introducing Scenario Testing 

ECAs are used for preliminary analysis of the legal merits of the case, claims and likely defenses. Some ECAs are used at the time of preservation and post-collection, using only about 100 GB of data or less.

For larger data sets, those over 100 GB, CaseCentral has developed scenario testing and forecasting for risk management. Using a scenario testing tool is a transparent method to help reduce costs and save time. By testing out different scenarios, asking "what if" and factoring in variables and custodians, companies can figure out the risk and how best to prevent it.

With CaseCentral's integrated multi-purpose platform, users can create active review folders and similar tool sets, which can help to reduce training for staff. Data is centrally stored, managed and secured so that users can have more control, eliminating the need to have multiple copies of secure data.

Access can be granted as needed, to anyone, anywhere, without having to create more than one set of data.

Designed for Collaboration, Resulting in Transparency

Designed for collaboration, CaseCentral allows service providers a more shared approach so that outside counsel can certify how data was collected, what search terms and custodians were used.

Such transparency is welcome, considering that outside counsel doesn't have access to in-house projects, but need to see all the steps if they are going to vouch for them in court. CaseCentral takes the preservation information, loads it into a private cloud, making it available to everyone so that they can working collaboratively.

Because of its transparency and foresight within the ECA process, information can be re-used and re-evaluated.

Changing the Way Pricing Works

Customers can also benefit from a transparency of pricing. CaseCentral wants to encourage users to look at large data sets earlier than later, so they are letting customers pay US$ 10 per GB per month as a starting point.

Once culled into smaller amounts, active review can begin, enacting a different pricing menu. Considering that company contracts vary from several months to several years, the flexible pricing structure lets customers budget their time and cost better.
