In the fall of 2019, 141 eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey participants chose to answer at least one of the optional business operational metric survey questions in the quarterly survey. Almost 25% (24.8%) of survey respondents reported Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) as increasing in the fall of 2019. This is a solid decrease from approximately 33% (32.7%) reporting MRR as increasing in the summer of 2019.
In the fall of 2019, only 38.7% of eDiscovery Business Confidence Survey respondents feel that business climate conditions will be better in six months. This is slightly lower than sentiment in the summer of 2019 where 39.9% of survey respondents felt that the business conditions would be better in six months.
