Chose Nextpoint
Blow for blow, there is not too much difference between Nextpoint's and Relativity's functionality. I would say that Nextpoint has a more user-friendly and attractive interface, although it does lack a bit of the functionality of Relativity.

Nextpoint
Nextpoint is great in a wide range of scenarios. Specifically, it has worked very well for me when we have been confronted with both large and small document productions which need to be reviewed. We have also been able to use Nextpoint to address some other, non-document production related problems. I think Nextpoint is a strong tool to consider in just about any scenario. The only time I would hesitate to use Nextpoint would be in some type of involved document production that needs many levels of organization. The lack of subfolders can be a bit of a challenge and, although the coding options meet the need in my opinion, it is not exactly what everyone is looking for.

Relativity is well suited for all the eDiscovery workflows. It's excellent for document review, coding, active learning, content and structured analytics, searches, persistent highlights, imaging, and burning redactions into productions. The error rates with processing in Relativity are a little compared to other eDiscovery processing tools in the market. It is solely for document review purposes legal scenarios or otherwise, but it is not a complete solution for building customized hosting nor neither it is a replacement for conventional websites.

kCura
  • Very powerful tool, but does require a high level of expertise and head count to administer the product.
  • If hosting yourself, requires investment in servers and ideally is housed in a data center
  • Providers need to pay kCura a monthly user license fee for every user who has access to the tool. Providers can purchase blocks of users, but with a large amount of users on a case, it's cost that some external clients are not thrilled about

Support Rating
Nextpoint
The basic package does not include support other than general issues and the help content is not very helpful. The next level has committed and dedicated resources which would provide a better rating here but for the basic package, the support is lacking which makes it a difficult starting option and as a result, you then miss out on the pricing benefits.
