The BlueStar E-Discovery Toolkit is a useful application for attorneys, paralegals, litigation support staff, and clients who need more information about common processing, review and production questions. As a service to our current and prospective clients, we have put together a tool that provides valuable reference resources to give clients an idea how much their E-Discovery may cost and how long the process may take. Along with a glossary of terms and a handy data-to-documents/pages conversion calculator, the application is an essential tool for the e-Discovery practitioner.Conversion TableEver have a client ask, How many emails are in a gigabyte of data? Need to find out how many pages are contained in a terabyte of electronic documents? The Conversion Table will give you an estimate of how many documents or pages may be found in a user defined amount of data. Broken down by common email and document formats, the user can easily estimate how much data they have in a tangible measurement by the number of documents or pages.Cost EstimatorE-Discovery and the costs associated with it are a large portion of a client s litigation spend. Using industry averages, BCS has created a Cost Estimator to give clients an idea how much a user defined amount of data or number of documents for review could cost to deal with in litigation. Enter the number of gigabytes of data to process or the number of documents to review and the Cost Estimator will give an estimate of what to expect in terms of litigation spend for these necessary services.
