ACEDS Twin Cities Chapter Presents "Straight Talk on TAR" 
Presented by Thomas Gricks and Sponsored by Catalyst 

Despite TAR’s demonstrated savings, both in peer-reviewed studies and in case after case, there remains much confusion about how TAR works, which form of TAR to use, and even the definition of the term itself. Part of the problem stems from providers with a vested interest in marketing older, less-effective TAR software; part inheres in the nature of TAR itself, which can feel complicated and perhaps a bit “black box” to those not versed in how easy a good TAR system can be to use.

Join us for this hour of “Straight Talk on TAR” as we debunk many of the myths of TAR and its superior abilities.

What we cover:

  • What TAR is and what it is not. (Hint: It isn’t clustering or threading!)
  • What the different types of TAR are and which works best, including a discussion of all these “new” flavors of TAR that keep popping up.
  • What the scientific research tells us about TAR.
  • Whether you should use TAR for all your cases?

Tom Gricks will pull no punches in getting to the facts, backing it up with experience and solid, independent scientific research.
