Cons
"The knowledge base is not as in-depth as it should be.""Searching could be improved. There's a lot of limitations when searching with Google Vault.""eDiscovery could be improved with additional information and an easier way to retain it.""Although it does a good job of searching through data and exporting it, I feel that Google Vault should have more export options available to the user. As a reseller, our customers demand a lot from their Google products, and exporting is one area where there's a lot of improvement needed."

More Google Vault Cons →

"What I dislike about Relativity is that we have to go through the host in order to do productions and loads. It is not a do-it-yourself tool.""The price per user could be improved. We'd like for it to be more affordable.""There are a lot of bugs on the development side.""They require more built-in support for some third-party applications."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Google Vault comes as part of a package deal for us."
  • "Last year, the price was randomly increased and our customers were really facing a challenge around this. Google launched new pricing under different plans, where formerly there were only three plans, and now there are four, each with their own separate usage allowances. I think it's good, though. The basic plan is now the Business Starter plan, and many customers find this plan very convenient and minimal in price. Overall, the pricing for all the plans is good."
