Document conversion has improved the efficiency of how litigation cases are prepared and organized. Scanning eliminates the massive amounts of paperwork related to a typical case. Electronic filing and coding allows thousands of documents to be keyword searched for relevant information, which improves analyzing and reviewing time.

In 2000, the government of Canada implemented the Uniform Electronic Evidence Act (UEEA) by amending the Canada Evidence Act. The Uniform Act makes focused amendments to existing rules of evidence to facilitate the admissibility of electronic records in court proceedings. Furthermore, the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) is currently in the process of drafting documented standards for the use of electronic evidence in court.

Pierre Vachon, president of AMS Imaging, is currently participating in the development of these CGSB standards. The implications associated with these changes are significant; as a result, AMS Imaging offers litigation support through document standardization. This involves converting all relevant materials to one format (usually PDF or TIFF); furthermore, these documents may be indexed to provide optimized access capabilities.

Also, it is becoming increasingly common for law firms and corporations to take advantage of the various litigation support software that is currently available. These toolkits use databases to provide increased analytical power, by assisting legal practitioners at each stage of the legal process. Once your documents are scanned, they can be used in conjunction with any litigation software.
