Looking for the right eDiscovery software for your law firm? Try GoldFynch.

It’s a fresh, adaptable eDiscovery application with all the features that a discerning small-to-medium size law firm needs.

Here’s why people are talking about it.

In fact, GoldFynch was recently featured in an eDiscovery Buyer’s Guide video. Below are some of the things law firms like about it.

1. GoldFynch saves you money

It costs just $25 a month for a 3 GB case. And with GoldFynch, you know what you’re paying for exactly – its pricing is simple, prorated and readily available on the website. How is this possible? Law firms used to store their data on private servers (on-premises hosting). But this meant they’d have to handle their own data protection, tech support and 24x7 electricity backup for their servers. Instead, GoldFynch stores your data in the Cloud – a global network of servers owned by software giants like Amazon and Google. These companies lease out storage space on their servers to businesses around the world. And since so many people share the same servers, everyone splits the bill. That’s why Cloud services like Dropbox and Google Drive are so affordable. And it’s how GoldFynch saves you money.

2. It gives you a predictable monthly bill

With GoldFynch, you’ll get a predictable monthly bill. Many eDiscovery providers use a ‘per GB’ (or, ‘pay as you go’) pricing plan. So, they tell you how much each GB of data they store for you will cost. And you use that rate to pay for the GBs you used that month. Seems fair, right? But a sneaky per-GB provider can manipulate the rate to their advantage. Instead, GoldFynch uses a ‘fixed volume’ pricing plan. Here, storage space is divided into chunks (or ‘plans’) – e.g. 3 GB, 5 GB, 10 GB, etc. And their prices have been set in advance. So, choose your plan and you’ll immediately know what your bill will be at the end of the month. Learn more about per-GB vs. fixed-volume pricing plans.

3. It keeps you mobile and lets you grow

Once GoldFynch puts your data in the Cloud, you can access it from anywhere, 24/7. All you need is a computer and an internet connection. This means you can work while at the airport, at home, or on the go. Your files are backed up on multiple Cloud servers and since there are thousands of these servers, you have near-unlimited storage space. This means your cases can start small and grow to hundreds of GBs, all with GoldFynch.

4. It’s highly secure

The Cloud gets you the kind of security that banks use for their online transactions. Because Cloud providers invest millions of dollars in protecting your data.

  • They protect your data from physical damage (fires, floods, etc.). And they have generators to make sure their servers are always powered up.
  • They protect your data from intruders and hackers. They do rigorous background and security checks for employees and IT professionals that come in contact with their servers. They use technology like encrypted biometric identification to make sure only authorized vendors are connecting to their servers. And they regularly test their software and hardware to make them hack-proof.
  • They encrypt your data. And when you want to delete it, they use crypto-shredding to delete the encryption keys. This guarantees that your data is wiped thoroughly. Also, they mask (i.e., hide within random characters) vital information like credit card numbers.
  • They have advanced data recovery tools to retrieve your data if it gets lost. And they make sure your data doesn’t get mistakenly corrupted, edited, or mixed up with other users’ Cloud data.

5. It can add to your workforce

When you’re reviewing gigabytes’ worth of files, it’s easy to drown in data. That’s why the GoldFynch lets you book a ‘managed document review.’ Here, a team of outside attorneys review eDiscovery documents on your behalf. The more popular teams are highly qualified, experienced, and affordable. And they help you outsource the hassle of reviews. Learn more about the advantages of a managed review.

6. It’s quick to set up

You won’t be setting anything up, actually. That’s because, instead of buying eDiscovery software, you’ll be subscribing to an eDiscovery service. Since GoldFynch is set up and run in the Cloud, you’ll access it via your web browser – just like you do with email. This is called Software as a Service (SaaS), and it’s transformed eDiscovery. So, you get to sign in and start uploading files in less than 10 minutes – no sales calls or emails back and forth. Plus, you get a free trial case (0.5 GB of data and processing cap of 1 GB), without adding a credit card.

7. It’s easy to maintain

GoldFynch is designed, developed, and run by the same team. So, its technical support isn’t outsourced and you get prompt, reliable service.

8. It’s simple to use

GoldFynch is intuitive, so you won’t need a manual to figure out how to use it. For example, it has a powerful search engine that can follow complex commands like: “Find all emails John Anderson sent Sally Nedry, which mention the Pfizer meeting. And which were sent before 2015.” You’d think it would be hard to set up a search that’s this specific. But with GoldFynch, you can build it quickly using simple drop-down menus. It’s as easy as using Google.
