Use of courts or mediation?

Beyond cybercrime obviously, but touching on an important issue: speed. France launched an experiment, that to use mediation instead of going to trial for small issues when linked with the use of internet. There is no obligation to use mediation but the success rate in dealing with cases per annum is about 85%, so this is a strong incentive to avoid long delays. Should I add that avoiding courts costs is not necessarily an incentive in France as those costs are minor, especially compared to those of the UK.
