Pros: Summation is classic software that many people in the industry are familiar with. That familiarity is a selling point.

Cons: Summation has gone through a lot of changes throughout the years as far as who owns the software to license it and it has not really kept up to speed with new technology and updating.

Keeps depositions organized.

Pros: Very useful when trying to review depositions. It's useful when you are searching for keywords and when you are working on deposition summaries.

Cons: It takes a little to learn how to navigate and how to use it. I am sure I have not explored all the awesome feautures it may have.

Summation has been a very cumbersome software to use it slow to process production sets

Pros: It is helpful to process emails and convert to PDF. If you don't have an PDF program like power PDF Nuance.

Cons: Processing is slow and errors a lot of the time. It usings silverlight in IE that that seems to hung up the loading of images.

Falling behind

Comments: While Summation may have been the dominant tool (whether as iBlaze or Pro) for law firms up to a few years ago, it has failed to keep pace with the rapid advance of e-discovery technologies and requirements.
