Our Services

SMART!™ Processing

In addition to our SMART!™ Processing our team of data scientists and litigation consultants can assist you in making your case ready for trial. Our additional services include.

We provide sane pricing. Our competitors do not know the cost metrics of their services. Therefore they add several hundred percent of the actual costs to their pricing in order to account for the unknown risk factors. We know our cost metrics and set our prices to cover those costs with a fair profit margin. 


​We have simplified the pricing model. We charge one low price per gigabyte for Smart! Processing and an easy hourly fee for everything else. We can also do fixed fee projects or even fee based on the success of the lawsuit. HP2 also has the ability to provide for financing for your projects.

Professional Services

This not 2006. The eDiscovery industry is an established industry with mature processes and predictable results. The technology deployed by companies is proven and reliable. The is no need for companies to cloke the services they provide in complex techno-babble.


At HP2 we provide clear explanations of what we do, how we do it and the cost is known before we start the work. If there are variables in our processes we notify you of those before we begin. NO SURPRISES!


Many of our competitors work under a cloak of secrecy. They do not want you to know how and what they are doing. We are completely transparent as to your processes.  We offer our clients visibility into the projects  through our Data Production Management System (DPMS). DPMS will feed you metrics and milestones by messaging regular status updates directly by text or email. You will always know where we are in the process.


We can present you with real time job completion and budget updates. With HP2 you will know what we are doing, when we will finish and what it is going to cost. No surprises!
