Legal Industry and Document Imaging: What Matters and What App Development Tools are Available

Document imaging in the legal profession

For a legal department, document management and electronic storage go hand-in-hand. It is important to comply with current legal regulations and still be able to retrieve documents in the future. Here are some problems that a litigation IT department could need to solve:

  • e-Discovery: This is an internal, proactive system that can be developed in case of internal audits or litigation. The 9 stages of a compliant document ECM include: information management, identification, preservation, collection, processing, review, analysis, production, and presentation.
  • Simple document viewing and editing: Scanned documents that are archived in a repository can be viewed in a central, web-based environment. Documents can be redacted and data can be extracted for use in a case or for record keeping.
