Ability to Adapt
HaystackID has long understood the importance of agility and flexibility in the litigation support landscape. This began with its early commitment to technology neutrality, or the promise that it would never get tied down by one piece of software like so many of its competitors, rather becoming experts in the full spectrum of technologies available on the market.
HaystackID Information Discovery (“HaystackID”) has made a name for itself in the scope of litigation proceedings that involve the public sector, as it has a unique understanding of the peculiarities that accompany such matters. Not only can cases present far more red tape in this arena – the scope of projects and timelines in which they need to be completed can be equally challenging.
HaystackID Information Discovery (“HaystackID”) has a long history of proactively identifying the ways in which a project’s scope might be incorrect, and then reliably and clearly communicating the better path forward to clients, even when those individuals do not have a strong understanding of the elements involved. Rather than trying to take advantage of relatively untrained attorneys, HaystackID takes a consultative, professorial approach to its client relationships.
This means educating clients whenever possible and always working in their best interests – effectively being a true advocate rather than a money pit.
One of the most important factors in choosing a litigation support vendor is stability. Case matters can be in litigation for many months, if not years, and client firms place a lot of trust in a vendor when they begin the processing for a new matter. Should anything occur which would necessitate switching from one vendor to another for processing, many issues can arise. Moving from one vendor to another, or splitting a particular case between multiple vendors, can be problematic for many reasons, with the most glaring issues stemming from de-duplication inconsistencies.
Litigation support continues to evolve to meet the needs of changing technology, forcing the industry to adopt new methodologies to capture advanced formats of information.
A standard webpage is among the most challenging formats of information to capture in the digital age, as they are filled with embedded media, links to other pages, and other features.
Microsoft OneNote is a digital notebook for capturing, storing and sharing all kinds of information. The organization of OneNote files are extremely difficult to image, as they are not a file but rather a logical collection of files bound together by an index that reflects a virtual foldering structure. This makes the task notably complex from a data processing perspective, as normal software is incapable of handling these documents as easily as Microsoft Office or Adobe PDF files.
The cost of processing collections, especially when data is over collected, is a major issue of eDiscovery. For this reason, the process of selecting a vendor is critical, as it could mean the difference between crippling costs and more predictable ones. HaystackID strives to achieve maximum efficiency by focusing on decreasing the strain processing puts on internal networks in addition to outside counsel, tasked with reviewing these documents.
