eDiscovery Firm Launches Application, Saves $1 Million

Consultancy Launches Cloud Application, Avoids More Than $1 Million in IT Costs

Learn how Hanu Software, Microsoft’s Preferred Cloud Partner, successfully introduced Cloud computing to eClaris Software, a professional services firm specializing in eDiscovery consulting.

Situation: eClaris wanted to expand its offerings in the legal field to include software solutions, beginning with PHIGRID, a legal project management application that it intended to host for customers.

Solution: They turned to Hanu Software to build PHIGRID into a commercial application. Hanu suggested that eClaris migrate PHIGRID to Windows Azure to avoid purchasing and managing on-premises server and storage infrastructure, which had become a serious barrier to marketing the new product.

Results: This move benefited eClaris in many ways, including:

  • Avoiding $1 Million in Capital Expense
  • Reducing the Sales Cycle by 25 percent
  • Reducing Application Management

For eClaris, embracing Microsoft cloud services was a key step in launching a new line of business to increase market share and differentiate its offerings in the legal field.
