Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 7, 2005
InterLegis, Inc., a provider of Internet-based digital document management services, announces the release of InterLegis Express, a Âplug and playÂ service that enables small law firms and solo practitioners to store as many as 100,000 pages of litigation documents online and then search and organize those documents using advanced search technology.
ÂInterLegis Express levels the playing field by giving small firms the ability to compete on equal terms with large firms for complex cases,Â said Kevin Carr, President of InterLegis. ÂUntil now, smaller firms or small cases were largely ignored by technology providers, and access to the best document management technology was generally cost-prohibitive. This often meant that smaller firms had to make do with inferior technology. The problem was compounded if the firm had to go against a larger firm with greater resources.Â
The InterLegis Express technology is largely automated and self-managed. As a result it provides good value for any firm thatÂs handling cases involving up to 100,000 pages of documents. ÂBy automating much of the process, we can provide it at a lower cost,Â adds Carr.
With InterLegis Express, paper documents are digitized and then transmitted along with native format documents like e-mails and spreadsheets to an online digital document repository, where they are accessible at any time and from any location. Once the data has been stored on-line, the legal team can use advanced search engines to search, organize and review the documents. They can further fine-tune their searches with such tools as:
- QueryBuilderÂ Â an intuitive tool that helps legal teams use Boolean, exact phrase, fuzzy, Âsounds like,Â Âx within yÂ and other sophisticated search approaches.
- Auto-DateÂ Â a tool that finds documents by date, regardless of where that date appears in the document.
- Result Filters Â a resource that helps search teams control and organize their results on the basis of a wide range of filters, such as duplicates, similar documents, productions, Âviewed/not viewedÂ and Âpreviously searched/not searched.Â
- Index Lookups Â a capability that finds documents by date, document type, author, recipient, and more.
To expedite review, InterLegis Express includes a variety of organizing tools, including customizable folders, saved searches, privilege flags and Âhot docs.Â
When documents have been reviewed and are ready for production, a production engine can build and release productions, complete with Bates numbering, and provide the results in either CD-Rom or paper format.
Because all of the data is stored online, legal teams working in different locations can work collaboratively. Sophisticated security can limit access and authorize access on a Âread onlyÂ or Âread and writeÂ basis.
For small firms that tackle complex cases with more than 100,000 document pages, InterLegis can provide additional document intelligence and searching capabilities, such as Digital Document DNAÂ, one of the most advanced conceptual search technologies.
ÂWith this kind of technological support,Â said Carr, Âthe legal team can devote less time to searching and reviewing documents and more time to planning its case and laying out its arguments Â and working smarter like this can ultimately make the difference.Â
