LexisNexis® Legal & Professional ( www.lexisnexis.com), a leading global provider of content and technology solutions, today announced the release of a new version of its TextMap® transcript management software, which now supports full-text searching of transcript annotations and case exhibits, in addition to the existing support for searching trial and deposition transcripts. “TextMap 7 makes it much easier for our customers to locate a specific transcript or case exhibit for review within seconds, no matter where it resides in the database,” said Steve Ashbacher, vice president of the CaseMap suite of products at LexisNexis. Ashbacher noted that the company made improvements to the way TextMap 7 indexes case data and enhanced the search technology in the software to open up annotation notes, exhibit document contents and scanned exhibit image files. TextMap 7 now supports even the largest of cases, in which there can be thousands of transcripts that must be managed. "The technology improvements in TextMap 7 have made it possible to dramatically improve indexing speed,” said Ashbacher. "For databases containing 1,000 transcripts or more, TextMap 7 is able to index the case 85 percent faster than the prior version of the software.” For more information or to download a free trial of TextMap, please go to: www.lexisnexis.com/litigation-textmap.
