New Pay-Per-Use and Subscription Models Help Law Firms and Legal Departments Address Budgetary Constraints Through Pricing Transparency and Predictability

Houston, Texas (PRWEB) May 9, 2017

CloudNine, the eDiscovery Company ( which provides eDiscovery automation software and professional services for litigation, investigations, and audits, today unveiled its new and simplified eDiscovery pricing models to allow for easier understanding and predictability of the costs of its eDiscovery software and services. The new pay-per-use and volume-based subscription pricing models consist of four plans including pay-as-you-go pricing of $35 per GB per month for core eDiscovery services with no minimum commitment. The new models and plans are available immediately from CloudNine.

“Today’s eDiscovery practitioners are faced with the increasing challenge of doing more work with fewer resources,” shared Doug Austin, Vice President of Operations and Professional Services at CloudNine. “This is even a bigger challenge when one considers the general lack of clarity and transparency in most technology provider pricing structures. With our new pricing models, we have created some of the most understandable and economical pricing available, helping law firms and legal departments better address budgetary challenges by being able to understand, predict, and afford the cost of eDiscovery.”
