There is no reason contract attorneys should suffer because someone made a bad decision about what file formats to use.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
A new document splitting tool in the Nextpoint litigation platform makes it possible for eDiscovery attorneys to quickly cut unwieldy documents down to a manageable size. Attorneys can now get reviews started faster and more efficiently after getting a large, unwieldy PDF from opposing counsel or other party in litigation.
Documents are often produced for litigation as enormous Adobe PDF files, often with dozens or hundreds of documents compiled into one master document. The new Document Splitting feature allows clients to scroll through a long PDF document and add page breaks where necessary. This all-new document splitting feature is a direct response to client requests for a tool to alleviate this challenge and accelerate reviews.
A Potent Fix to a Pernicious Problem
The document splitting feature can be turned on or off by the user. When engaged, the reviewer can simply mark “splits” between pages of a large file. Once done, they click a button, confirm their choices and the document is then divided into multiple, smaller documents. A master document remains on the system if they choose to keep it or need to revert back to the original, unbroken document for any reason.
The most viable alternative for review teams has been the use of a PDF utility or Adobe products to split and save individual pages. Until now, this functionality was not available in review software – adding time, cost, and complexity to the task of splitting documents. Today, Nextpoint has put the power to split documents in in the user’s hands, and at no extra charge. Because the Nextpoint litigation platform is available on demand as a cloud-based service, this feature is available now to all Nextpoint customers.
Attorneys can now get reviews started faster and more efficiently. Document Splitting is just one more way Nextpoint’s document review service saves them time and money. “Nextpoint is committed to solving problems that affect our clients in their day-to-day work,” says Nextpoint founder and CEO Rakesh Madhava. “There is no reason reviewers should suffer because someone made a bad decision about what file formats to use.
