Is Your Litigation Support System Stuck in the 80’s?

Your current litigation support software may not measure up to the demands of today’s electronic document based litigation. Why? Perhaps it’s built on 80’s technology and unable to manage large volumes of data.  Maybe it can’t handle certain document types or foreign languages. or maybe it’s jut not all that easy to use.

Let’s face it. Some of today’s popular litigation support systems were designed and built back when Milli Vanilli was still riding high on the charts.  These systems have attempted to keep up with the times, but, due to their architectures, they struggle under the demands of the ESI productions that firms are seeing today. And while most of us acknowledge these faults, we continue to use the old programs because that’s what they’ve “always used,” and we believe that migrating to a new platform would be difficult or expensive to do.

But leveraging the latest litigation technology does not call for a drastic “rip and replace” of your existing technologies. Instead a migration and/or co-exist strategy can

  • Be painless to an organization
  • Provide uninterrupted litigation process support
  • Easily transfer data back and forth
  • Allow users to continue leveraging the features of their legacy system
  • Be cost effective
  • Lead to rapid litigation process acceleration

Next Wednesday I’ll be moderating a webinar hosted by Anacomp’s CaseLogistix on how to accomplish such a migration and with the economy set to turn around, now is the time to prepare for the inevitable litigation activity upswing by understanding how to handle such a migration.

Presented by Mandi Ross, CEO & Managing Director, Prism Litigation Technology and Jeff Friedman, Senior Product Manager, Anacomp, this webinar will answer the following questions:

  • What are the limitations of older litigation support systems?
  • What can modern litigation support platforms do that legacy systems can’t?
  • How can my firm or legal department migrate to or co-exist with a next-generation platform?
  • What are the best practice paths and processes to do so?
  • What firms have done so, and what can I learn from them?
  • How can data be converted and shared from one system to another?
  • How can I maximize my success with a new platform?
