As Miller and I continue to expand our knowledge of e-discovery vendors we are exploring the ins and outs of various systems and solutions.  Before the Thanksgiving holiday we sat through a product demo of Clearwell. The bells and whistles seemed easy to ring and blow with this product.

Now, note that a full live drive of this product has not occurred so my comments are based upon my own knowledge and experience and the impressions made during the product demo.

  1. Clearwell offers an easy to use and understand interface.
  2. The ability to search beyond a few keywords seems limited.
  3. Options to narrow the body of material to actually search is sophisticated.

Is Clearwell the clear choice for e-discovery needs?  It depends upon your situation and your needs and your already installed solutions but if you are seeking a product to consider, I would put Clearwell in the inbox.
