kCura: how much does your company spend on legal hold?

The advice@kCura blog is designed to help kCura Relativity users on a range of practical subjects likely to be of importance to users.

A recent article is called How much does your company spend on legal hold? In addition to advice both general and Relativity-specific, the article includes a simple chart showing the cost components of legal hold – the number of holds per year x the various components of the task x the hourly salary of the person responsible for managing holds.

The calculation is, of course, more complex than the simple diagram implies. Its purpose is not to be a calculator in the full sense but to draw attention to the cost components. Having set these out, the article then invites you to compare the costs of alternative software approaches. Some factors – the number of holds and the hourly rate of the individuals – do not change whatever the solution.

The cost of the stages in between, however, will depend in part upon the choice of software used – and kCura does, of course, have a recently-upgraded legal hold solution of its own.
