It has been almost a year since Andy Wilson, Logikcull’s CEO/Founder. I have to confess that we spent more time talking about the evolving eDiscovery market than digging into the SaaS platforms new features. Andy’s team has done a pretty good job of keeping their eDJ Matrix profile up to date, so I guess that the real news is how their public pricing subscription model has taken off. Sometimes the consumption model is a more important differentiator than the latest, greatest machine learning black box. Here are my briefing bullet points:

  • Goal for SMB to use the same product as large enterprise – leveling the eDiscovery playing field
  • Subscription model working well. Entry point is $1,500/month for 4 cases with 50 GB max/case, $30/GB for additional data
  • Based pricing on averaged data size for over 2,000 typical SMB cases
  • You can’t just be a vendor in the cloud. SMB market needs a true hands-off subscription service
  • Solved the volume intake/upload process for non-technical customers
  • QC – Culling Intelligence Engine – post processing/indexing inventory and exception report
  • Firms still dominate customer base, but growing enterprise customers (~30% today)
  • Strong value recognition from small corporate legal teams for centralized discovery management
  • Complementary onboarding session
  • Dedicated customer success team, hiring more
  • Automated parallel streaming and processing infrastructure to conquer bandwidth and volume
  • Redup algorithm – dynamic vertical/horizontal deduplication/expansion of collections
  • Focus on reducing the friction slowing the sharing of information between parties
  • Roadmap – Direct cloud transfer without load files
    • Dropbox, Office 365, Slack in development
    • “We don’t want you multi-TB cases. Take those to the expensive platforms”


The last little quote tells the story. Logikcull is yet another small SaaS player focused on the 90% of matters that the rest of the industry views as ‘loss leaders’. 2015 seems to be the year that kCura consolidates its hold on the traditional, large corporate defense cases while a new generation of innovative start-ups tackles the hidden part of the eDiscovery iceberg. A good example of this is how Zapproved’s Legal Hold Pro used the SMB customers to steal market share from Exterro and IBM’s Atlas.
