Has your firm considered bringing eDiscovery in-house?
There is a reason why large law firms and large corporations implement in-house eDiscovery management systems. You have more control over the document retention and litigation or investigation workflows, and eDiscovery is incorporated into the stream of revenue. But, there is also a reason why many law firms and companies rely on service providers—IT infrastructure done right is expensive!
That’s where we come in. Sift brings an innovative approach to eDiscovery. Our platform provides your firm or corporation with your own eDiscovery department on a flexible subscription basis without massive capital outlay.
With Sift, your staff has administrative control over your eDiscovery database and workflows, including case creation, data ingestion, document review, and user access. Your litigation team is no longer reliant on an outside vendor’s schedule to meet deadlines, do document review, and grant user access.
Sift allows you to choose how much data storage you want. The more data you host, the lower the rates. We offer three subscription tiers and each tier buys you storage space at a fixed price.
Each Tier is a bulk purchase on a 1-year subscription; however, you are free to move up or down between tiers as your data hosting needs evolve. Your tier is not a limit, it is simply a minimum purchased amount. Any additional data will be charged at the per gigabyte rate for your tier.
|ITEM||STANDARD||TIER 1||TIER 2||TIER 3+|
|Data Purchased||No Minimum||1 TB||2 TB||3 TB+|
|Ingestion & Processing/GB*||$30||$20||$20||$20|
|Included User Licenses||0||5||10||15|
Many large law firms build their own eDiscovery infrastructure, license myriad software, and hire teams of IT staff, only to then bill their clients like any other eDiscovery vendor, thereby turning a vendor cost into a profit center. With Sift’s In-house eDiscovery Suite you could do the same, without the capital outlay or the headache.
Your firm pays Sift for aggregate storage to be used for all or a select portion of of its cases. You then have a choice: either do what the large firms do and charge your clients a reasonable but profitable rate for eDiscovery hosting, or turn eDiscovery into a competitive advantage and pass those ridiculous savings on to your clients. Whatever you choose, Sift will help tailor its In-House eDiscovery Suite to suite your practice.
To illustrate the benefits of Sift’s In-house eDiscovery Suite, consider a cost comparison on a hypothetical case below, which assumes 1.2 terabytes of data, 8 hours of time for analytics, and 5 users.

We understand that your litigation group has cases with data in multiple platforms hosted by multiple eDiscovery vendors. Getting all of that data hosted in your new In-house eDiscovery Suite could be time consuming and expensive. Sift makes the switch painless.
With Sift’s In-house eDiscovery Suite, Sift will ingest all load files from any platform and any vendor for free! We will even make sure your tagging palettes are mapped correctly so you experience little to no downtime during the transition.
