From ages Legal procedures have placed their faith on documentations but not without reasons though. And since litigation process involves tons of documentation and paperwork you also need a proper format to store them. Which once upon a time were tedious and time consuming process but thanks to the innovative litigation software technology which has come as a boon to the law firms, it saves them time and money.

Tracking Documents

Searching paper documents when needed can be a sweat breaking process, whereas the effectiveness of the litigation software lies in its compatibility with database technology to search the relevant document in a blink. The software uses Bates stamping technology that indexes the documents and enables you to retrieve them with just a click of the mouse. The software also works as an encyclopedia as it has fact-finder feature which pulls out details relating to any particular case. You can get the information on the factual issues, judges, and juries related to your case which can help you to prepare better and present a strong case for your client.

Organizing Documents

Most of the litigation software provides you with tools to organize and make your documents more presentable. You can as well input and store the document data in a summarized format with relevant information which you can retrieve for getting a quick insight into the case file. You can incorporate links within the document and connect it with other relevant documents, or add your own comments to the document without actually affecting the original data.

Law firms can also do well with litigation transcription software which connects to the transcription machine of the court reporter and imports the draft of the verdict or testimony issued in real time.

Flexibility

The litigation software has flexibility which allows you to customize it for different documents, and the information can be presented in different formats as required. You can share the document over the intranet or the internet with the concerned parties, including paralegals and attorneys in a quick time. And you can export data to other applications of your computer, like spread sheets and word processors. The software has other additional feature which allows you to scan the paper documents as well.

And since the software has digital database files of images and texts, they can be downloaded from anywhere hence save you from carrying the sensitive documents in person. Furthermore, the documents remain well preserved and protected, and chances of them getting lost or stolen are next to zero.

Money Savings

Since the software can convert physical documents into digital text or image, the law firms can save on paper expenses and become completely paper-free. Then for storing paper documents as your firm grows and more litigation documents piles up, you need to spend more on the storage facilities. Whereas storing your documents at the software’s database is very much cost effective and simple. And since the software has automated functioning which is effective and efficient, it saves you valuable working hours.
