Mobile Technology

Today users demand to be able to “work from anywhere without restrictions”, so every vendor claims “mobile user support”, “Internet support”, “work from anywhere”, etc. But, all mobile user support and synchronization technologies are not created equal. To us, mobility means working as though you’re in the office whether you’re on-line or off-line. No limitations. No restrictions. In this post, we cover how that’s seamlessly handled in MasterFile.

Regular mail and new paper documents — why conventional systems are unsatisfactory

Document management system vendors tell you to just scan evidence and store it in the DM system, along with work-product. But DM systems are not designed to let you take thousands of documents on the road with you — they don’t even offer full text searching of content when you’re disconnected from the network! Litigation support systems, on the other hand, are designed to manage evidence and images and OCR them. But then your case file is split — outgoing work product in the document management system and incoming documents in the litigation support system. We (naturally) think MasterFile is better and explain why.

Managing litigation and work-product

We wondered: “Why should legal firms incur the costs of acquisition, installation, support, maintenance, and training of two major systems just for documents. Could one be sufficient?”

Case Knowledge Management

At its heart, making your case is about proving the facts related to each issue with concrete argument, substantiated with key extracts of information (raw facts) drawn from the documents or evidence — exactly what MasterFile was designed for from the start.
