Lexbe eDiscovery Platform Feature Reviews

20 reviewers had the following to say about Lexbe eDiscovery Platform's features:

Earl Lin

Fantastic for organizing, analyzing, and sharing documents

2018-02-20

Pros

The automatic OCR function, which makes high volumes of documents easily searchable, coupled with the degree of customization for tagging and the ease of sharing cloud-hosted documents among team members makes Lexbe a stellar tool for analyzing, organizing, and collaborating on case document collections, no matter how vast the universe of documents.

Cons

Namely, the privilege marking, placeholder production when encountering incompatible document formats or otherwise problematic files, and the length of time it takes for the system to process and Bates stamp a production can be frustrating, time consuming, and occasionally lead to discovery disputes between parties.

Response from Lexbe


Earl, thank you for the review and feedback. We take client feedback very serious and are constantly implementing changes to improve the Lexbe eDiscovery Platform. The time it takes for a production to run can vary depending on file size and type. Our target is for all producitons to run with one business day and the vast majority run in that time frame. When possible, we encourage planning to run a production a few days before the deadline to allow time in the event unforseen issues arise. With that said, we also understand time is of the essance and encourage clients to reach out to our Professional Services staff when a rush job arises so that they can monitor progress from the beginning and intervene as needed. Production placeholders do occur at times when a file cannot be auto-converted, but the original version of the document is provided in the Originals folder as supplement and that will typically fulfill discovery needs. Please let us know if you run into this again.

2018-02-21

Pros

Cons

Search functionality is imprecise: occasionally returns false positives Batch document uploading can be a headache, esp. if produced outside of Lexbe; often has to be handled by Technical Services (who are always helpful)

Response from Lexbe


Connor, thanks for the review. We highly encourage that you report false positive search hits to our Professional Services (PS) department. Providing an example document and search term where this happened allows them to attempt to replicate the behavior and report it directly to the software department for investigation. Alternatively, the Lexbe eDiscovery Platform does have multiple search options so the PS staff will also be able to advise if the correct option was selected. Uploading productions with corresponding loadfiles is an indepth process. It can techinically be done DIY and with intermediate excel skills, but our Professional Services staff is very experienced in this process and can upload the productions fast and accurate, not to mention for free if you are on a Subscription Plan. It is our understanding that most platforms require vendor intervention for these production uploads.

Catherine, thank you for the review. After a search is run, the total document hit count appears in the top banner. The fields displayed on the Search page can be adjusted and Page Count is an available field. The Lexbe eDiscovery Platform (LEP) has a built in Hot Doc tag that works independently of Notes. Notes can be added to an individual document when it is displayed in the Doc Viewer and is also an available filter so one can isolate all documents with Notes on them. Our Professional Services staff is always on call, so we recommend reaching out with any questions as they are very knowledgable and are extremely helpful in explaining the functionality of LEP.

Recently switched from another e-discovery platform and we're very pleased with Lexbe so far

2018-03-19

more efficient e-discovery process

Pros

Being able to upload our own cases and documents, knowing we have almost full control to work in the portal independently so we won't be charged if we don't want to be for professional service hours.

Cons

We've also already submitted a feature request, which is really nice that Lexbe takes user feedback seriously.

I have had a very positive experience working with the Lexbe eDiscovery Platform and their employees

2017-12-04

It allows me to easily handle most jobs individually with the option of offering services to assist on larger or more difficult cases.

Pros

They also offer great rates to be flexible with your firms storage needs and no additional charges for uploading and other common fees that you would incur if using a competitors platform.

Cons

However, this is the case with any program and the Lexbe support experts are very helpful in moving the process along.

Lexbe is a great do-it-yourself product for e-discovery in a mid-sized law firm

2018-02-28

I am able to quickly, efficiently and cost effectively handle my own e-discovery needs!

Pros

Uploading my documents and being able to work in the database on my time, with no vendor related lag time.

Cons

But Lexbe allows you to easily run a report to identify those problem documents.

Rebecca, thank you for the review. We are glad we have been able to assist in identifying these un-converted forms. These types of layered PDFs can be reviewed from the Original tab. By default, the Lexbe eDiscovery platform provides corresponding original files as supplement in all standard productions, so these types of files can be produced as well. In the event that the PDFs are desired to display in the PDF tab, they can be converted offline and merged into the PDF tab with the Original tab still maintaining the fillable version.

Scott, thank you for the review. The DIY upload via drag and drop is dependent on size and user's network settings. We don't have a limitation on the size of documents that can be uploaded. The Browse screen will display all documents in the case and there are several ways to organize and group documents besides upload batch--Custodians, Doc Source, Custom tags, etc., all of which can be filtered for on the Browse screen. In the event that you have a bulk data set that requires to be uploaded as one batch, please feel free to reach out to our Professional Services staff as they can perform the upload on their end. If you have a Subscription plan, standard uploads are free and handled by Lexbe Professional Services. You can send us your drive, FTP, etc.

Lexbe offers a lot of features but isn't easy to use; supporting literature confusing/conflicting

2018-02-26

Not sure which software this survey refers to - the one I signed on to rate or the software hosting the survey.

Pros

Different formats to view documents including native.

Cons

Method of review is confusing. Production screen should be one screen, not having to go between 2 different tabs on the browser. Don't like the placeholders -too many, too confusing.

Denise, thank you for the review. The Lexbe eDiscovery Platform has a continuous review function where documents are reviewed in one Doc Viewer review screen. It is recommended that a review set is created and review is performed through the "Review Docs" function. That eliminates the need to have to go back and forth between Browse and Doc Viewer. Placeholders are generated for unsupported file types (i.e. .mov, .mp4) as well as for supported file types that failed to convert for various reasons including file corruption. We encourage clients to reach out to our Professional Services staff when placeholders occur for supported file types as those files can be rerun automatically or manually for attempted conversion.

Kristine, thank you for the review. We have made some updates to our custom tag management page and all custom tags can be moved and edited after creation. We have also made an update that allows for creating custom tag and sections 'on the fly' from the Browse and Search pages. We hope you find these updates helpful!

Non-User Friendly and Not Worth the Cost

2019-10-03

It made the discovery process much more complex than it should have been for production of 50,000 documents. Additionally, we were charged an hourly rate for support (with no disclosure of the fees) when we needed help correcting issues the software created.

Pros

The best thing about this software was the demonstration during the sales pitch, which made it seem like an incredible software which would be highly user friendly and beneficial to my clients and practice.

Cons

* Review of documents did not flow smoothly - lots of time scrolling and clicking to review * For production it forced us to produce the native PDF as well as the bates numbered PDF (confusing for counsel and duplicative) * On PST files, attachments were loaded into the bates numbered documents as "placeholders" leaving opposing counsel to guess which native email each bates numbered email went to in order to locate the attachments. * Opposing counsel could not open the files from the production links
