Building a business case for a law firm to implement SharePoint 2013 as a records management solution should be a straightforward proposition. SharePoint 2013 includes a new E-Discovery feature targeted to law firms, and more. In a video tutorial titled How Litigation Holds and E-Discovery Work in SharePoint 2013, John Holliday, JD, explains how litigation holds and E-Discovery work in SharePoint.
More information on the new SharePoint 2013 E-Discovery feature can be found in an article titled eDiscovery in SharePoint 2013 on Microsoft’s MSDN site.
On June 10, 2013 Gartner released its Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery Software. Excerpts from this study are readily from a number of the 24 market participants included in it.
Quite a number of analyses of the cost of E-Discovery processes are also readily available online. A review of any of these should quickly provide readers with an appreciation of why implementing SharePoint 2013 as a Records Management solution, complete with an optimized E-Discovery feature, can represent a substantially less expensive project than opting to proceed with a branded, proprietary solution from someone else.
The video tutorial mentioned at the start of this post is one of nineteen video tutorials comprising our SP13-309 SharePoint 2013: Records Management Course. This course includes approximately 3.5 hours of training.
A law firm with SharePoint Server 2013, Enterprise, already implemented on premises, stands to benefit most from the comparative cost savings of building an E-Discovery function for the firm on the SharePoint 2013 platform. Our video tutorial set is available for unlimited enterprise viewing at a one time purchase cost of $1995.00.
SharePoint stakeholders can use our content, along with our VisualSP™ Help System for SharePoint, to expose context-specific help, directly to participants in the project, whenever they need it.
As an added benefit, any law firm opting to implement our Records Management video training content, along with our ribbon tab help system will also benefit from our SharePoint 2013 end user training content, which is included with VisualSP at no additional charge.
If your law firm would like to learn more about using SharePoint 2013 to build an efficient, comparatively low cost records management solution (including an E-Discovery capability), please don’t hesitate to contact us.
