It’s no secret that litigators are busy. Between managing clients, conducting depositions, prepping for trial, and participating in legal proceedings, they often don’t have the time, nor the inclination, to learn a new litigation support software. Opus 2 Magnum solves that problem with its easy-to-use transcript management software designed to enable legal professionals to be up and running in as little as a 15-minute training session.
Learning a new software program can be an intimidating prospect, especially when dealing with the stresses of an active case. For some people, it just seems easier to stay with the status quo, even though there are inefficiencies and workflow problems that are inherent to continuing use of inadequate software; or, in some cases, the use of old-fashioned, cumbersome paper-based methods of case analysis and trial prep.
Opus 2 Magnum mimics how lawyers work
Magnum emulates the way lawyers work on paper but without the hassles of sticky notes or other inefficient ways to handle evidentiary material and insight. Oftentimes, these markers are misplaced, making the designated passage or key insight hard to find again. Gone can be the days of flipping through binders and banker boxes to locate key documents and exhibits or digging through email messages in search of a particularly insightful summary from a colleague. With Magnum, evidentiary material, team annotations, chronologies and exhibits are all within immediate reach on our cloud-based collaborative platform that gives authorised users access to the most updated materials anytime and from any modern connected device.
Opus 2 is uniquely positioned to understand the frustrations you face because our staff of professionals have backgrounds in the legal realm, many as former commercial litigators and trial technology consultants—we know what you go through and thus have developed a paperless way to make your life a little easier with our state-of-the-art transcript management and collaborative case analysis software. And the best part is that it is truly easy to learn and understand with little downtime that could disrupt client services, deposition prep or trial prep.
Some emerging legal software companies claim their product is easy to learn, but can they back up those claims? We can. As an example, busy judges have become our biggest advocates touting the ease of use, advanced features and intuitive tools that help them conduct efficient hearings with little difficulty or training.
Transcript management software gaining momentum in the US
Magnum has become the de facto litigation and arbitration software in the UK and is widely adopted for arbitration in Singapore and parts of the Middle East. Even the US is gaining significant momentum as a number of top AMLaw firms are adopting Magnum as the best-in-class litigation support software for all their cases firm-wide, primarily because of its ease of use and familiar toolbox which “follows” users throughout each stage of the matter.
A single toolbox enables lawyers and co-counsel to apply tags, notes, designations and hyperlinks, manage tasks and share their work product with collaborators. This same familiar toolbox follows users throughout the life of the matter, from early case analysis to depositions, motions, hearings and trials. There’s no need to learn new tools right when your case is heating up. The same Magnum workspace and tools can even follow you into the hearing room to offer ultimate efficiencies and enable a digital hearing. Read our blog about The Emergence of Electronic Courtrooms.
Forget about long and boring software training workshops that consume time that could be spent on more interesting endeavors. Turn to Opus 2 Magnum to get the most out of your team’s valuable time.
