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.

“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.”

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.

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.”

The recognition was announced in June as part of the 2016 Innovation Awards from LTN. You can read the article in Legaltech news or the news release announcing the honor.
