Legal Case Management Software
Legal Case Management Software is a term used to refer to the range of litigation support platforms that perform various eDiscovery and practice management functions. Litigation professionals can use case management software to host, review, process, and analyze electronically stored information in preparation for trial.
Why Use Case Management Software?
Legal Case Management Software is designed to handle increasingly large volumes of case data that don’t seem to be slowing down. Litigation professionals can’t practically review every document without the features developed and implemented by case management platforms.
The functionality of legal case management software reduces the time and capital expense of important discovery tasks. Loading large amounts of ESI into case management software allows for remote access of an entire case byanyone your firm grants access to.
Advanced search features common in legal case management software allow users to find important case documents for review quickly. Some case management programs include timelining and case analysis features that allow you to link documents to particular case facts in preparation for depositions and trial. Case Management Software can give you the ability to create productions in a variety of format for delivery to opposing counsel. Thes platforms can even be used to review and host any received productions
Legal Case Management Software combines case document accessibility with scalable functionality that can greatly streamline the discovery process. These case management programs create the opportunity to save both time and money, in addition to giving you a more indepth perspective of your case.
Ways to Deliver Legal Case Management Software
LAN Based Installations – Case Management programs can be installed locally by setting up on site serversto host and run the software. This approach can be beneficial in that it implies in-house management of IT and data storage functions. However, LAN based installations are not scalable, are very expensive and may require your firm to hire additional support employees or even create an entirely new department to manage the local case management platform.
Cloud Based – Case Management Software can also be hosted via the cloud, or offsite servers maintained by IT security experts and delivered by litigation service professionals. This can be beneficial because cloud systems can scale to provide as much or as little storage, processing, etc. as you need. Cloud-based systems are increasingly feature-rich, fast, and secure. They are accessible from a wide range of devices and browsers. Cloud based legal case management software is also more affordable than alternatives because there is no need to purchase expensive servers and licenses to operate in-house systems.
