What do you like best?
Working as a Consultant within the eDiscovery industry, I help clients implement the industry's best of breed eDiscovery solutions such as Exterro. I have spent the last last 9+ years working specifically with client's Corporate Legal departments on implementing Exterro as their chosen on the premises and in-house ediscovery solution. Exterro is a complete, end-to-end, feature rich, effective and powerful, full spectrum EDRM solution and one of the industry's best ediscovery tools on the market. My Corporate Legal users find it easy to use. From legal hold to preservation, collection, data load file ingestion and exportation, processing, review, through production, Exterro is seamless and gets the job done efficiently.
Exterro is one of the most client focused solution providers that I have worked with over the past 20+ years. They really care about their client's success in implementing and using Exterro. They listen to their clients and are extremely receptive to customer requests for product enhancements. They are a very agile company and are quick to respond to client and support related issues.

Oddly as this is going to sound, it's hard for me to think of something that I dislike about Exterro!
Recommendations to others considering the product
I highly recommend Exterro. I've worked specifically with Exterro clients in the Corporate Legal department for more 9 years as their internal eDiscovery implementation Project Manager. Speaking from personal experience, Exterro is a great eDiscovery solution from Legal Hold through Data Management. Exterro does not disappoint and gets the job done.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
After a lengthy RFI process, my current client chose Exterro as their primary, in-house, on premises, eDiscovery solution. They had embarked on the long and monumental task of implementing a major overhaul and transformation eDiscovery project; moving away from an inefficient, disjointed and manual process by utilizing and deploying industry-blessed and best-of-breed solution (Exterro v5.x). Exterro is the system my client's Corporate Legal department currently uses to identify, locate, preserve, collect, sift through, organize, process information, produce and present in a court of law. It is providing Corporate Legal with a huge ROI as they are less dependent on outside Counsel and have become less reliant on ediscovery service vendors (such as Consilio). Exterro empowers my client's Corporate Legal users love the Exterro EDDM tools which have made them less dependent on IT and enables their attorney's to meet their litigation related requests head on and in a timely manner.
Upon completion of the Exterro Legal Hold and EDDM – eDiscovery Data Management project, my client is now fully compliant with Federal and State imposed Governance, Compliance and Regulatory obligations such as the FRCP – Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Discovery Act as set forth in the California Code of Civil Procedure.
