Veritext’s Sustainability Resources



Veritext’s Commitment Towards Sustainable Operations

Veritext continues to incorporate sustainable changes into our products and service offerings. See the below timeline of changes.

MyVeritext Online Repository

– Early 2000s –

Veritext creates the first online web portal MyVeritext (formerly VIP21) where transcripts and exhibits can be accessed electronically — paving the way for an industry standard of reduced reliance on paper products.

XMS Paperless Exhibits

– 2010 –

Veritext patents the first paperless exhibit solution (XMS). This revolutionary technology reduces the need for multiple paper copies of exhibits produced for deposition attendees. XMS requires only one master hard copy. Through the scanning of this master hard copy, electronic copies are distributed to other deposition attendees greatly reducing paper waste.

Condensed Transcripts

– 2014 –

Veritext takes further steps toward the abatement of paper resources in our industry by providing condensed transcripts in lieu of full-size transcripts for clients who request a copy.

Encrypted Hyperlinks

– 2015 –

Veritext continues to bridge a transition towards completely paperless transcripts by including as part of our standard deliverable an email with securely encrypted hyperlinks. These new links make accessing electronic files even easier.

Advanced Case Exhibits (ACE)

– 2016 –

Veritext develops an electronic exhibit package called Advanced Case Exhibits (ACE). This package is a hyperlinked master exhibit index that is OCR’d and searchable by keyword. Its electronic PDF format makes it accessible from any computer, tablet, or mobile device and contributes to the ease of working with exhibits electronically as opposed to utilizing physical resources. Read More>

Exhibit Share

– 2017 –

Veritext replaces XMS with Exhibit Share, an improved and extremely simple-to-use paperless deposition solution that allows ALL attendees to share electronic documents without the need for a paper copy. Read More>

CD / DVD Sunsetting

– 2018 –

Veritext begins sunsetting our production of DVD and physical disc media, reducing waste and the depletion of environmental resources through the elimination of product and shipping materials.

Electronic Invoices

– 2019 –

Veritext begins transitioning our deliverable of hard copy invoices to our new standard of an electronic deliverable.

Electronic Transcripts & Exhibits

– JULY 2019 – MAY 2022 –

Veritext began our progressive journey toward an electronic-only deliverable by ceasing the production of physical paper copies of transcripts and exhibits. From July 2019 through May 2022, Veritext has saved 19,000 trees, the equivalent of 30 football fields.
