Nextpoint Discovery v. Litigation


Nextpoint offers users two essential and distinct software workflows, Discovery and Litigation. Each is purpose-built to manage data in secure, collaborative, databases which you can set up as needed, and customize to meet your specific case and team needs.  

While Discovery and Litigation each have unique capabilities, there are many similarities across the platform which aim to streamline your experience from collection and processing to preparing for trial, and everything in between.

Should I set up a Discovery or Litigation database for this matter? 

To help aid in this common question, we’ve provided a brief infographic which describes common data type categories, what users need to accomplish, and the resulting recommendation for database type (Discovery v. Litigation):Review_and_Prep-02.jpg


Another approach to managing produced data:

While users most commonly manage native client data in a Discovery database, we also see users apply the analytics and relevancy review components of Discovery databases to make an initial "relevant vs. not relevant" cull of a large production (100GB+) received from a producing party.

If you find yourself in this situation, please read our FAQ which outlines this particular workflow in further detail.

Nextpoint Discovery, focuses on facilitating your data analysis, document review for relevancy and privilege, and electronic production. 

Simple and secure drag & drop upload

The Drag & Drop Import functionality is extremely helpful when you need to import native data, often in the format of pst, mbox, or zip.  Database setup and all the complicated and critical stuff (deduplication, OCR, imaging, metadata extraction) is done automatically—and there are NO data charges.
