What streamlining document review can mean for your firm
Document review is often a critical aspect of every law firm’s success. While every firm needs document review to ensure optimal results for clients, it’s often the most expensive and cumbersome stage of the litigation process. Because the process is so taxing for every party involved, document review should be streamlined to help make life a little easier.
In our last blog, we discussed the extensive costs that come with housing in-person document reviewers, and how those costs can make it difficult to provide the highest quality services to clients. The cost associated with document review is typically the primary reason firms switch to Cloud Review CenterSM technology as an alternative, but the other key reason is because it helps expand their pool of review attorneys.
With in-person document review, firms are limited to hiring reviewers in their geographic area who are able to commute, typically to a downtown office location, to review files for what could be hours on end. Firms are also limited by the skillsets those reviewers have. For example, if a firm in Omaha needs a reviewer who can translate a document written in Korean, they can expect to have a difficult time finding someone who can do that locally, within the time-frame that document needs to be reviewed.
The same can be said for reviewers who have specialized technical knowledge who are needed to make sense of a document. Technical jargon can be hard to process, and firms need to make sure documents that require a deeper understanding of technical language are reviewed as thoroughly and attentively as those written in plain English. With Cloud Review Center software, firms no longer face the issue of finding qualified reviewers for highly complex topics.
An expanded workforce made possible by remote document review in a cloud review center also helps provide access to lower cost labor markets. This could be especially beneficial when compared to more expensive cities where eligible workforce may be limited like Los Angeles, New York and D.C. By leveraging a cloud-based review center, firms in larger markets can access reviewers from lower-cost cities without compromising the quality of work.
Lastly, remote document review completely eliminates the added burden of commuting. No one enjoys fighting rush-hour traffic, circling around a downtown area to find parking or taking multiple means of public transportation to get to a destination. Commuting is one of life’s inconveniences that remote document review in a cloud review center can take care of, so why not take the first steps?
