Thomson Reuters eDiscovery Point Named LTN’s 2016 Product of the Year

EAGAN, Minn. – Just months after promising to transform the market with a faster and easier-to-use ediscovery platform, Thomson Reuters eDiscovery Point has been named Legaltech news’ Product of the Year. The recognition was announced as part of the 2016 Innovation Awards from LTN. 

According to the article from Legaltech news announcing the honor, the “winner is intended to embody that ever-present buzzword—disruption. While the Product of the Year does not necessarily need to be a new offering, this year, LTN decided to honor a platform that entered the industry with a large splash. Not content to rest on name recognition, this product provided not only increased speed and efficiency for e-discovery practitioners, but a well-rounded offering that encapsulates new pricing managed services models as well to increase value.”

“We are thrilled that Legaltech news has honored eDiscovery Point as its product of the year,” said Eric Laughlin, managing director of Thomson Reuters Legal Managed Services business. “The legal industry is benefitting from an influx of innovative technology and processes. We are happy to be acknowledged for the solution we provide, one that puts technology and simplicity squarely on the side of legal practitioners.”

In their software review, Legaltech news describes eDiscovery Point as “a triumph of simplicity, capability, and pricing practicality." Launched earlier this year, eDiscovery Point enables clients to upload and process documents in minutes, and its early data-assessment tool allows users to find, organize and focus quickly on the most relevant documents in a cost-effective manner. Search on eDiscovery Point is drawn from the Westlaw search syntax and offers powerful and precise search, as well as quick and accurate results, regardless of data size or the amount of concurrent users. The clean, intuitive interface enables users to reduce review time, as well as onboarding, offering a smooth process that has condensed steps and contextual menus to guide users.

According to Laughlin, Thomson Reuters worked from the beginning with four law firms – Paul Hastings LLP; Chaffetz Lindsey LLP; Kolesar & Leatham; and Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr, P.C. – who offered insights and guidance on their processes, provided input into the design, and rigorously tested eDiscovery Point. “Our Design Partner firms are an important part of this journey and we’re proud to share this honor with them,” said Laughlin.

Doug Gibson, director of Information & Legal Support at Chaffetz Lindsey, noted, “eDiscovery Point was the obvious choice for Product of the Year. It is a next-gen tool that will make Chaffetz Lindsey even more efficient and competitive. This product showcases Thomson Reuters core strengths: bringing order to disorderly data while leveraging Westlaw search with a clean user interface that instantly put our attorneys at ease.”
