Suddenly you're the lead litigator.
You've got co-counsel in New York, L.A., and Dallas.
You've got 35,000 documents to review and two weeks to prepare.
You've got document management headaches.
We've got the cure.
Document management is a time-consuming and tedious task, but a necessary one. How effective are you in truly "managing" your case documents?
The time involved in locating, copying, coding, and searching documents is just the beginning. Consider the time you spend organizing your documents to prepare your case. For even the most organized person, this can be a very frustrating process.
So what if there was a system that could reduce the effort and cost involved in managing your documents? Imagine all of your case materials available right at your fingertips. No need to rummage through boxes stuffed with stapled, rubber banded, and paper-clipped documents.
Introducing the InQuery for Litigation™ Document Management System... a system designed to let you spend more time winning cases and less time managing documents.
Created by Pinika, InQuery for Litigation™ is a comprehensive and productive solution for managing and organizing volumes of documents using the latest in technology without requiring you or your staff to become technology experts. It's not just software. It's not just a document imaging service. It's the key to effective information management.
With InQuery for Litigation™, you hand us a box of documents and we give you back electronic files that are organized to your specifications, indexed, sequence numbered, and fully text searchable. Your documents are accessible any time anywhere via an easy-to-use Windows-based software application. Further, they can be shared with anyone you choose via a secure Web connection.
InQuery for Litigation™ eliminates the headache of managing thousands of documents so that you can focus on what's truly important, winning cases.
Pinika designed InQuery for Litigation™ to make the process of managing case documents as painless as possible. InQuery allows you to do everything you can with paper documents but eliminates the hassle of searching through file cabinets and Banker's Boxes® and photocopying into the wee hours of the night.
With the InQuery System, paper documents are labeled, counted, and scanned. Pinika's Optical Character Recognition software (OCR) renders your case documents as fully text searchable electronic files with an achieved 99% character accuracy rate. Then your documents are separated by document type (e.g., correspondence, depositions, motions, etc.) and are indexed and organized hierarchically according to your specifications.
The easy-to-use InQuery for Litigation™ software allows you to access your documents via an Internet connection. You can highlight and make notes to your documents, change the way they are organized, and share your documents with co-counsel, your staff, and your client, if you wish. Your secured electronic files are backed up nightly and taken off site.
You and your staff receive free training and our help desk is available 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
Pinika's InQuery for Litigation™ software is accessible from your desktop through your Internet connection. Unlike most litigation support software, you won't need a technology team in order to get started.
The main InQuery for Litigation™ screen is composed of three parts:
- Menu bar
- Case organization window
- Document tab window
Once you have launched InQuery for Litigation™, you will be prompted to select a case from all of the cases that you have entered into the system. Once a case has been selected, InQuery for Litigation™ will collect all of the images, miscellaneous files and data associated with the case and populate the case-organization window.
The case organization window reflects the organizational structure of the case as originally created by Pinika and altered by you and your staff. It is the logical organization of the documents that you have created (e.g., pleadings) or received (e.g., discovery or subpoenaed documents) during the case. InQuery for Litigation™ allows you to reorganize all or a portion of your case at anytime via simple clicks of your mouse. You may copy, cut, paste and move documents or nodes from one location within the case organization window to another. Additionally, InQuery for Litigation™ allows you to perform these same operations utilizing standard Windows drag and drop functionality.
The document tab window allows you to perform numerous actions on the documents or nodes that you have selected in the case organization window, including:
- Viewing, printing and annotating documents.
- Viewing, editing and printing the OCR text of documents.
- Creating and attaching notes to documents.
- Creating and associating key words and dates to documents.
- Naming documents.
- Creating or capturing the sequence (Bates) number of a document.
Searching your case for critical documents is quick and easy in InQuery for Litigation™. Even if your case contains millions of documents, InQuery for Litigation™ can quickly determine which documents relate to a specific topic, keyword, phrase or date. InQuery for Litigation™ allows searching on:
- OCR text
- Annotation text
- Document or node names
- Sequence (Bates) numbers
- Keywords or key dates
- Image file name
Further, InQuery for Litigation™ allows you to search the entire case or a portion of the case, thereby limiting the number of "hits" that you may have to review.
Once you have found the documents that you seek, InQuery for Litigation™ allows you to perform activities on all or a portion of the documents from your hit list, including:
- Copying or moving the documents to a new or existing folder.
- Printing the documents.
- Assigning keywords or key dates to the document en masse.
In addition to documents, InQuery for Litigation™ allows you to organize your non-image files, such as video clips, sound files, spreadsheets and word processing files. InQuery for Litigation™ acts as your on-line filing cabinet for organizing your case documents and files, whether they were originally paper or digital. InQuery for Litigation™ uses the viewer version of most common Microsoft® applications to allow you to view but not alter the files.
You have co-counsel in New York, LA and Dallas. How will you share your documents and information?
With InQuery for Litigation™, your case documents and data may be shared with whomever you choose using Pinika's ASP website. Once you have given co-counsel authorization through Pinika's InQuery for Litigation™ authentication system, they may view the images and/or perform the functions that you allow, even while you or others are in the system. InQuery for Litigation™ tracks and updates the changes that each of you make.
There's no need to worry about the security of your documents. InQuery for Litigation uses the latest technology for document and file security: 128-bit RC5 encryption, the strongest standard for secure web transactions.
Pinika LLC. ensures that a daily backup is made of your data, and we have complete disaster recovery procedures in place. Your peace of mind, and the protection of your case materials, is our first concern.
