For less than a cup of coffee (from $2 per day per user) MasterFile Hosted Services let you share your MasterFile databases without worrying about managing your own in-house server. MFHS gives you the unique advantage to work off-line without restrictions on your entire case -- something web-only SaaS applications simply can not provide. The moment you connect to
MFHS via the internet, MasterFile's built-in, encrypted, bi-directional synchronization brings you, your other mobile colleagues and everyone else in the office up to date.

And with USB MasterFile, our revolutionary way to go mobile, MFHS gives you a new level of flexibility. USB MasterFile runs directly off standard USB flash disks or external drives. Just plug into any computer and you're good to go! Work on-line connected to MFHS or off-line and replicate when you're back
on-line.

One low, monthly, per user cost, with no requirement for traditional hardware, server software, upgrades, support and maintenance, plus freed up resources, all add up to long term time and cost savings. A professionally managed data center provides database and server security, backups, hardware and communications redundancy, server administration and many other "technical issues" that can otherwise distract you from your work are handled for you and help ensure  business continuity and peace of mind.
 

Compare MasterFile Hosted Services to SaaS litigation software

  • MasterFile is used all day, every day, for all your document needs
    SaaS applications for litigation support are designed primarily for dealing with litigation involving huge amounts of evidentiary documents. Some include other features like document production; others don't.

    In contrast, MasterFile is designed to be used by everyone in the office, day in, day out, not just for litigation documents and case analysis, but for all document related activities whether related to corporate, family or transactional law. How would you use MasterFile in your work? Here's a typical day with MasterFile in a law office.
     
  • No per case hosting fees
    Conventional SaaS services charge steep fees per litigation and e-discovery matter that easily run $200 to $500+ per gb for each batch you submit for set-up and document loading. Monthly on-line fees are additional ... and it adds up. SaaS costs for 5 users and just 25 cases with just 10gb of case documents can easily cost thousands of dollars per month and an equivalent amount to set-up.
     
    MFHS would cost just $375 to set-up and $345 per month for those 5 users! Simply because, MasterFile lets you set-up any number of cases or matters in one click and load case data yourself using its Express Load and E-mail Loader. No documents or e-mails need to be sent to MasterFile, a bureau or SaaS provider. Whether you use MFHS, MasterFile on a workstation or on your in-house MasterFile server, the process for loading documents is always the same.
     
  • Flexibility: Mix and match hosted with in-house as needed
    As your firm grows, or your IT policy evolves, instantly switch between, or even mix and match MFHS and MasterFile on your own in-house server -- with no change in your data, application, user interface or the way you work.

    Unlike conventional SaaS web based services, MFHS does not force an all or nothing approach on you. Decide, even on a case file by case file basis, which databases to keep in-house and which to host with MFHS. Your users continue to use MasterFile without noticing any difference. It's that simple.

    Your also not not locked into MFHS -- you're free to go in house with all your data.

    One click, secure, bi-directional synchronization of all case work done while off-line.

    "While [synchronizing] is theoretically possible with other programs, none have had the convenience, ease and speed of MasterFile." -- Keith Pettle

    Mobility and Redundancy: Just add USB MasterFile for whole new mobile experience -- run MasterFile without restrictions right off standard USB drives

    USB MasterFile lets you run MasterFile from standard USB flash disks or external drives without restrictions. Just plug it in to any computer and start working!

    MasterFile looks and works the same on-line or off-line, on the road or the Internet is down. You get the same functionality without any restrictions no matter where you are -- even on a plane -- a task SaaS web based solutions simply dream about. Working normally off-line also means no finger-tapping while waiting 20, 30 or even 60 seconds just open larger documents from a SaaS server.

    When you're back on-line MasterFile's next generation replication synchronizes your colleagues' and your work bi-directionally. All notes, new or revised work-product, case strategies, argument, facts, chronologies, evidentiary documents -- everything -- in all your cases is synchronized across a secure, encrypted communications pathway with one click.
     
  • Archiving: Move old/dormant cases onto your own computers
    Since archival in MasterFile means live, you can review any archived case at any time! If a case is re-activated, you can simply restore it to MFHS with one click. You're not faced with spending hundreds of dollars each month in on-line costs for cases no one ever uses.
