If your legal hold management is built on Microsoft Excel or Access and Outlook and you are thinking that there must be a better way, don’t worry, you are not alone.
This will not surprise you. Corporate legal hold portfolios are growing, and employees are increasingly subject to multiple legal holds. Releasing recipients from a closed matter but maintaining them on other holds can be a logistical nightmare. In-house staff, responsible for issuing, tracking and managing the legal hold effort, is spending more and more time updating spreadsheets. The downstream result: increased potential risks for error and spoliation, and ultimately potential sanctions.
Automated reminders: Automatic reminders can be issued to recipients and are based upon a schedule you determine meets your management criteria and business need.
