New software version allows litigation professionals to
work with all documents related to a case, quickly locate
key information and jumpstart case analysis.
New York - LexisNexis (www.lexisnexis.com),
a leading provider of content and technology solutions,
today announced the introduction of CaseMap® 10, a new
version of the company's award-winning fact and issue
management software that now features full-text search
capabilities and bulk importing of electronic documents
into the CaseMap database.
The significantly enhanced search capabilities allow
CaseMap 10 users to conduct full-text searches across the
entire CaseMap case database of spreadsheets and documents,
enabling them to pinpoint key information and hard-to-find
evidence in just seconds.
The new comprehensive document importing capability makes
it easier for litigation professionals to work with all
documents related to a case, quickly locate key information
and jumpstart case analysis. CaseMap 10 enables users to
upload virtually all types of documents - regardless of
whether it's a PDF, email or Word file - in order to access
all information related to a case in one location. It also
supports bulk OCR (Optical Character Recognition) of
documents, making text within images and graphics in a
"As they prepare cases, litigators and their
professional support staff need to be able to easily find
and manage case information in one place so they can
quickly draw connections between facts, issues and
research," said Tiffany Williamson, vice president for
LexisNexis® CaseMap®. "With all-new features such as
easier document importing, faster full-text search
capabilities supplemented with OCR technology, customizable
spreadsheets, real-time collaboration tools, and Microsoft
Word and Outlook integration - all in one powerful offering
- CaseMap 10 addresses these needs and empowers our
customers to drive greater efficiency and better case
Additional key features of CaseMap 10 software include:
Customizable spreadsheets - CaseMap 10 users can now
create their own customized spreadsheets and rename
existing spreadsheets in CaseMap to tailor their
spreadsheets to best suit their unique needs.
Enhanced reporting - Users can now select and embed
documents into their PDF reports, which allows for easier
fact tracking and faster case analysis.
Microsoft® Office integration - CaseMap 10 integrates
with Microsoft Word, Outlook® and SharePoint®, allowing
users to seamlessly send work product and case data to
CaseMap from within Microsoft applications, either by
highlighting specific facts or sending the full document.
Litigation professionals can achieve significant
efficiency benefits by centralizing key case documents
and facts in CaseMap without having to enter the
information twice, cut and paste sections of text or
otherwise duplicate their work.
Real-time collaboration - Users can install a SharePoint
"Web part" to view real-time CaseMap data (e.g.
spreadsheets) on a case team or matter, as well as grant
access to the page for users who do not have access to
CaseMap (e.g. clients and co-counsel).
Optional CaseMap DocManager function - CaseMap 10 users
can choose to add on the new CaseMap DocManager feature,
which allows them to automate the process of creating
PDFs and TIFFs so they no longer have to manually produce
them one at a time. This removes inefficiencies in the
litigation support workflow and saves considerable time
when an attorney needs to create evidence books during
case preparation. CaseMap DocManager also allows users to
search and view the hits highlighted within these
documents, annotate, bates stamp and batch print.
The LexisNexis CaseMap suite has won more than 50 legal
industry awards for its innovative use of technology that
helps litigators better manage their cases. The new
functionality now available with CaseMap 10 was developed
as a result of extensive customer feedback.
