We had a large, multi-national intellectual property matter that required data collections from all over the world. BlackBox was the perfect tool for this situation. By allowing each data custodian to run the copy on-site, we saved a bundle in the expense and travel costs of sending technicians across the globe. The end result was that we got exactly the data we needed with no custodian interference.
