Giving litigators a lift
Thomson Reuters has unveiled West Case Notebook 2.0, the latest version of West’s case analysis and management software. West Case Notebook provides a centrally accessible electronic case file where users can organize, analyze and collaborate on all essential case information, says the company.
West Case Notebook 2.0 is the latest addition to Westlaw Litigator, a comprehensive set of integrated tools, services and content that helps attorneys be more productive at each stage of a matter and more efficient in creating superior work product.
The new version of West Case Notebook integrates with the tools that legal professionals use every day, streamlines litigation tasks and leverages the work of the entire litigation team, says Thomson Reuters. New capabilities include integration with legal research service WestlawNext, which means that research can be sent from WestlawNext directly into West Case Notebook case files for future reference, further analysis and streamlined collaboration.
Other new features in West Case Notebook 2.0 include more options for organizing information by user-defined topic groupings, populating contact lists directly from Microsoft Outlook, additional features for researching and analyzing information related to characters associated with the matter, remote access via a Web server and enhanced optical character recognition (OCR), which operates in the background, freeing users for other tasks.
West Case Notebook 2.0 is fully compatible with major operating environments, including Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008, as well as many others. West Case Notebook also continues to integrate with major software programs such as Word, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft PowerPoint, Corel WordPerfect and others.
