Middleware

With proprietary Lighthouse middleware and the best third-party software, Lighthouse creates workflows that are faster and more reliable than competing approaches. We select third-party software with open API’s. Our engineers then seamlessly integrate software created by Lighthouse to enhance and expand the capabilities of those systems.

Proprietary middleware

A key differentiator for Lighthouse is the proprietary technology we develop on top of third-party platforms. With the Lighthouse SmartSeries of technologies and customized workflows, we mitigate our clients’ litigation risks and reduce their overall discovery cost.

Assessments and reports

Lighthouse’s data analysis and reduction strategies facilitate early data assessment and cut cost and time.

Automated productions

Productions can require imaging and branding millions of pages, applying hundreds of settings, and choosing correct metadata fields from thousands of options. These steps once required hours of cost-intensive, low-value manual work. We’ve now automated multiple steps to eliminate much of that cost. We save more time and money with production templates so that settings, metadata fields, and format are standardized across your cases as much as possible. While we can accommodate changes to production specifications for individual matters, standardizing these details saves our clients time and money.

Embedded connectors

Our approach to technology delivers both the quality of point solutions and the smooth workflow of an end-to-end platform. Lighthouse’s proprietary connectors link our best-of-breed technologies together, eliminating delay, risk of error, and expense in exporting from one system and importing to another. Our solutions don’t depend on any single technology, so we are ready to take advantage of improvements as platforms evolve.

Custom engineering

Our engineers write custom applications to accommodate specific challenges. For example, we have created custom connectors from our clients’ software directly to ours, reconstructed decades-old databases, converted proprietary application data to reviewable formats, and created isolated systems for review by the opposing party’s technical experts.
