With law firms facing increasing pressure to cut costs, tools that save time are essential to boosting efficiency. This is especially true for non-lawyer staff like paralegals and legal secretaries – while their tasks are crucial to the functioning of the firm, they’re often time-consuming and involve the kind of tedious manual labor that many clients just don’t want to pay for any more.
That’s where Veritext comes in. We understand that working smarter and faster is important, perhaps now more than ever. That’s why we’ve developed the tools you need to make that possible. With solutions like MyVeritext, Snap Scheduling, Veritext Mobile, and Advanced Case Exhibits, your legal secretaries and paralegals will be well on their way to cutting out wasted time and boosting efficiency.
Working smarter starts with MyVeritext, our proprietary online client portal that brings together everything your staff needs to effectively do their jobs, all in one convenient place. Now you can manage your calendars, scheduling tools, transcripts, and documents from a single screen, even on the go. MyVeritext’s secure document repository lets you search, view, and download transcripts and exhibits. Better yet, MyVeritext works seamlessly with all the other handy tools Veritext offers to make your life easier.
The days when law firms functioned strictly from a sea of desks and offices are long gone. Today’s legal professionals rely heavily on mobile devices, and their tools need to be able to go where they go. With the Veritext Mobile app, everything you need to do your job fits right in your pocket. Now there’s no reason you can’t accomplish all your tasks, even if you’re not at the office.
Veritext Mobile seamlessly synchronizes with MyVeritext, meaning your secure client portal and document repository are always just a click away. Through the Veritext Mobile app you can confirm or change your schedules, view your scheduled depositions (complete with mapped directions), and download deposition transcripts and exhibits, all synced to your MyVeritext platform. Veritext Mobile gives you access anywhere, anytime, as long as you have a mobile device handy.
Scheduling depositions can be tedious and time-consuming, but it shouldn’t be. With Snap Scheduling from Veritext, you can go from zero to depo in just seven seconds. If you can drag and drop, you can schedule a deposition in a snap. Just drag and drop your deposition notice from your desktop into your MyVeritext portal, and you’re done. No forms to fill out or information to enter. Just drag, drop, and wait for your deposition to appear on your calendar. If you need to schedule on the go, just take a picture of your notice and upload it via your Veritext Mobile app. Need to reschedule? Just drag the deposition calendar event to another day. It really is that easy.
Advanced Case Exhibits (ACE)
Paralegals and legal secretaries have spent far too much time over the years organizing, lugging around, and tripping over boxes and boxes of exhibits. As the practice of law increasingly goes paperless, depositions should be no different.
With Advanced Case Exhibits (ACE) from Veritext, you can ditch the cumbersome boxes. ACE is a single digital package that contains all your case exhibits, organized chronologically with an index and wrapped up in a hyperlinked PDF that’s OCR’d and keyword searchable. The all-in-one-package is accessible from any computer, tablet, or mobile device – not to mention how much easier it is to carry around than all those boxes.
Boosting the efficiency of your paralegals and legal secretaries starts with giving them the tools they need to work quickly and effectively. Veritext is a recognized industry leader in litigation and deposition services, and we understand the need for efficiency.
