Casepoint, a leader in cloud-based legal technology solutions, will showcase its latest cloud connectors,  including connectors for Slack and Microsoft Teams, at Legalweek, Booth #305, from March 8 to 11. Casepoint recently became an official Slack Technology Partner, enabling direct collections from Slack for customers utilizing Casepoint’s powerful eDiscovery and legal hold applications.

Casepoint’s Chief Revenue Officer David Carns said, “The addition of Slack and Teams is in direct response to corporate and government customers’ growing use of these messaging and collaboration platforms.” Carns will be a featured speaker at the Legalweek RegTech track session “Solving Compliance and Regulatory Issues with AI Detection and Tracking Tools” at 11:00 a.m. ET on Thursday, March 10.

Casepoint’s integrated and automated collection capabilities for Slack, Teams, and other popular collaboration tools speed the entire eDiscovery process from legal hold to review and production. These latest cloud connectors substantially improve the ability of corporations, government agencies, law firms, and their corporate clients to collect and produce data in eDiscovery or investigations. Importantly, the cloud connectors dramatically reduce the number of touch points, data exposure risks, and costs of the process. A single legal professional can import data into the platform, apply integrated analytics capabilities to gain immediate insights into results, and identify relevant data to be provided to counsel.

“We are very excited to add Slack and Microsoft Teams to our growing list of cloud connectors,” said Vishal Rajpara, Chief Technology Officer at Casepoint. “Our fast expansion in this area is a direct response to the urgent need for corporations and law firms to manage expanding data volumes and types more efficiently and proactively, which we have done by making these capabilities an integrated element of their eDiscovery platform.”

“One of our unique advantages lies in the rapidity with which we can respond to customer requests for additional connectors, thanks to the strength of our technology and agility of our development team,” Rajpara emphasized.

Whereas other providers offer bolted-on integration, Casepoint’s connectors are integrated with its technology ecosystem from the ground up. The company’s unique technology and agile engineering strengths allow it to work closely with individual customers to quickly build connectors to meet specific needs.

Rajpara said, “As an example, we built an API in six weeks for one of the world’s largest freight transportation companies that needed to connect Casepoint to one of their existing systems. This enabled new workflow efficiencies and reporting capabilities that the client never had before.”

Casepoint’s technology features fast, enterprise-class solutions for full-spectrum legal discovery. With Casepoint, customers can manage and monitor the entire discovery process—from legal hold to production to review—entirely within its unified platform, eliminating the need to log in and out of other applications or manually transfer files. With Casepoint’s growing list of connectors, customers can directly access applications to collect files and relevant metadata in their native format without risking data security and maintaining a seamless experience.

Casepoint representatives will be available during Legalweek at Booth #305. https://legalweek.casepoint.com/

Announcing FTR RealTime: An Automated Speech-to-Text Transcription Service for Courtrooms 

LOS ANGELES, March 8, 2022—For The Record continues a 30-year legacy of groundbreaking legal technology with the release of FTR RealTime. The sophisticated, speech-to-text transcription service maintains pace with the spoken word while processing dialects, complex legal terminology, and multiple languages. With unprecedented accuracy of up to 95%, FTR RealTime eliminates the need to hire costly specialists for same-day transcription services. For The Record will debut FTR RealTime at Legalweek 2022. 

“Providing a searchable, instant written record is a critical step in modernization for the legal justice system,” said Tony Douglass, President of For The Record. “And after six years of testing and refining technology to do just that, FTR RealTime is ready. This automated transcription service will be revolutionary in terms of efficiency and access.” 

For The Record developed FTR RealTime specifically for courtroom applications by introducing artificial intelligence (AI) from top-tier platforms—such as AWS and Microsoft—to millions of hours of acoustically optimized legal proceedings. The highly specialized software emerging from this process not only delivers reliable transcription, it also links the written word with the corresponding audio for review and automatically stores records in the cloud for security. In courtrooms using For The Record’s audio and visual recording solutions, FTR RealTime service can be activated and operational in a day once configured. The transcription service will soon be available in courts around the world. 

According to Michael Rose, CEO of For The Record, “FTR RealTime is a technological leap in the speech-to-text market that will make a significant impact on our legal justice system. Judges will have a searchable record at their fingertips. Deaf and hard-of-hearing participants will have an automated tool that provides accessibility similar to CART. Lawyers will have the records they need to work on appeals. The potential limitless.” 

About For The Record 

For The Record is the global leader in digital audio, visual, and record-keeping innovations for the legal justice system. Over three decades, the company has modernized more than 30,000 courtrooms across 70+ countries. For The Record’s recent innovations include the world’s first cloud-based recording management system; an online transcript ordering platform; real time speech-to-text transcription; and a virtual justice platform that observes traditional court protocols. With the goals of accelerating justice and enhancing accessibility, For The Record continuously develops new courtroom technology.
