5 New Benefits in Concordance Desktop for Small Law Firms


Earlier this month, an 18-month journey of research and development concluded with the release of a reimagined version of the venerable LexisNexis Concordance® eDiscovery software product.

The new product, which is designed for cases of less than 1 million records (approximately 80% of all litigated disputes in the U.S.), was built to help litigation teams at smaller law firms manage the eDiscovery workflow faster and more accurately, right from their desktops.

As word has spread about the release of the new software, a number of litigation professionals have sought to learn more about the key features of the product. Below are five key things that smaller law firms need to know about the new product.

1. Lightning-Fast Review. A new document import engine enables users to review documents up to 10 times faster. The tool is able to render documents in seconds, giving litigation professionals a speedier onramp to begin their near-native review of documents and images.

2. Remote Access. LexisNexis has added remote connectivity to Concordance Desktop, providing customers the benefit of collaboration, which is especially valuable under tight deadlines. The review process can now be conducted with co-counsel, expert witnesses and other key members of the litigation team, regardless of where they are located.

3. Easy Imports. The new import engine ingests electronic documents, load files and emails faster than ever, and presents users with a simple three-click process for moving records into the eDiscovery workflow. Once the files are imported, the ease of use continues, with a simple drag-and-drop to organize folder structures based on tags, exhibit number, witness list or review category.

4. Flex Pricing. With the release of Concordance Desktop, LexisNexis is offering flexible licensing arrangements. The new pricing structure allows smaller law firms to ramp up or down on a monthly basis based on the peaks and valleys of their litigation demands, rather than a fixed price commitment that may be difficult to justify given the firm’s ongoing needs for eDiscovery software.

5. Admin Console. The product features a new Administrative Console. This allows administrators to gain better insight into their case databases and more control over the various administrative tasks involved in managing case databases across the firm.

For more information, please visit the Concordance Desktop website or to schedule a demonstration of the software.
