Our firm worked with Tracy on a complex and lengthy Aboriginal treaty trial that spanned a number of years and thousands of documents. She provided exceptional support to our team on technical, trial management and e-trial issues, including in-house training on Summation and managing an e-trial and common book. I have met few specialists or lawyers that could match her attention to detail. We were grateful for her skilled (and great-natured) litigation and technology support. I would recommend her to any legal team, particularly to implement a digital trial or utilize technology for document management and trial preparation.

"I had the distinct pleasure of working alongside Tracy on a migration of a Summation iBlaze installation from a server with direct attached storage to a network attached storage device. The experience was significantly "distinct" for me with her well-considered approach to the project from the overall big picture to its minute details. She was able to articulate the impact of the proposed changes and how we should best approach the work to maximum effect. Her long-standing knowledge of the product, together with her wealth of working experience, made her a welcome companion on the turn-key project. Without hesitation, I'd recommend Tracy for her work, her insights, and her keen professionalism."

I found Tracy to be a strong and dedicated team player. She also has strong communication skills. I would highly recommend Tracy as a consultant for document management, E-trial management and related project management for major litigation.

As a business owner, it’s tough to balance the potential benefits of a major organizational change against the costs and disruption that accompany it. I’m grateful for Tracy Ayling’s invaluable assistance in Reportex’s successful transition to a cloud-based infrastructure and I can’t recommend her services enough. From our initial strategic planning to the nitty-gritty details of vendor wrangling and database juggling, Tracy’s experience and skill made her an indispensable asset to our team every step of the journey.

"Tracy is very knowledgeable in the area of litigation support. I had the privilege of appearing on a panel with Tracy at the Commonwealth Legal Conference. Tracy also spoke at a recent CLE on eDiscovery on the topic of electronic trials. Tracy has a wealth of experience in this area."
Ann Halkett - Litigation Support Manager at Alexander Holburn Beaudin + Lang LLP, Vancouver, BC
I have had the opportunity to work with Ms. Ayling over the course of the past year and a half through our involvement on an Aboriginal litigation file before the British Columbia Supreme Court, Victoria Registry. Ms. Ayling was retained as a technical e-trial specialist and project management consultant on behalf of the plaintiffs in the case.
I found Ms. Ayling to be very knowledgeable, professional and of great assistance on the file. Ms. Ayling was well-organized, detailed in her work and proactive in her handling of schedules and costs. She is highly skilled at project management, e-trial planning and was an essential part of our team. I have no hesitations in giving my unqualified endorsement of Ms. Ayling.

"Tracy has been the go-to person for our firm as we moved onto a new technology platform. Her knowledge of Summation is phenomenal and she is determined to figure out the problem and bring back a solution that will actually work for our firm. She takes time to understand her clients needs and then does her best to provide great value and unbelievable service. We have hired her many times for different projects and I anticipate a very long relationship into the future between our firm and Tracy."
Sunita March - Executive Director at Camp Fiorante Matthews Mogerman, Vancouver BC
"I had a chance to work with Tracy to support Summation for our mutual clients regarding their transition from a traditional network environment to Citrix environment and cloud computing. It wasn't an easy transition for any of us and there wasn't a manual for everything that we were working on. But that's when it showed the depth of Tracy's knowledge and experience with Summation. She is very knowledgeable and consistent with Summation due to a long period of time working and troubleshooting with the software itself. In addition, she is a very pleasant person to work with.
For me, personally, it was a great opportunity to work along aside Tracy to assist her and learn from her. I'm strongly recommending her consulting services to whoever is looking for assistance with Summation for their firm."

She's also a pleasure to work with and is always ready to help and make suggestion."

Deborah Dresser - Litigation Research Consultant, Independent, Vancouver, BC
"I worked with Tracy as a researcher in the LMRB branch of INAC. In my current position, I represent the Canadian Government at hearings to resolve claims of abuse resulting from attendance and/or residence at Indian Residential Schools. I always found Tracy's work to be thorough and accurate. In my current position, I use the research provided to me and it's essential that it be correct. All parties to the hearings process rely upon the accuracy of this research. When I worked with Tracy, her work product was delivered in a timely manner. I found her to be a good team player and she was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her to any employer seeking accurate, timely and thorough legal and/or historical research."
