iCONECT-XERA Now Offers Transcript Management With New Opus 2 Magnum Alliance

Las Vegas, NV and New York, NY (January 26, 2015)
iCONECT Development LLC, technology leaders who develop intuitive, web-based eDiscovery software, and Opus 2 International, a worldwide litigation services and software development company, today announced an integration which makes Opus 2 Magnum™ transcripts available from within the iCONECT-XERA® document review platform via a single sign-on.  This integration streamlines workflow as case teams progress from eDiscovery review to deposition preparation and as they refine the subset of documents at the heart of the matter.
The complete document set in iCONECT-XERA and case-related transcripts stored in Opus 2 Magnum can now be accessed from a common client interface, saving the time and frustration of running separate software applications.  Clicking a transcript name in XERA’s new transcripts tile launches the Opus 2 Magnum workspace which houses the actual transcripts, key documents and depo-prep tools.  This integration with Opus 2 Magnum puts advanced evidence and transcript management tools at the fingertips of iCONECT-XERA users so they can easily adjust document tags and identify additional key documents in light of deposition testimony.
“Deposition and trial preparation is an iterative process with respect to the documents that best support the legal argument and eventually become exhibits,” said Graham Smith-Bernal, Founder and CEO of Opus 2 International. “By linking Opus 2 Magnum and iCONECT-XERA workspaces, our joint clients can more easily collaborate on the identification of the truly critical documents.”
iCONECT’s flagship software, iCONECT-XERA,  is a private cloud-based document review platform built for complex multi-party litigation projects and can be deployed in-house (behind the firewall)  or through iCONECT’s worldwide network of hosting providers.  iCONECT-XERA’s unique future-proof feature set gives organizations strong reasons to adopt iCONECT technology versus selecting legacy eDiscovery review tools.  The interface provides access from Chrome, Firefox, IE and Safari web browsers for the ultimate in flexibility for both domestic and international projects. 
Opus 2 Magnum is a private, cloud-based workspace from which litigators, co-counsel and experts share transcripts, key documents, exhibits, video and research and collaborate on work product for deposition and trial preparation.  Geographically-dispersed team members log in to the secure forum from their laptop or tablet to jointly dissect the salient aspects of testimony and evidence, develop questioning strategies and organize the material to be presented to the court.  A single toolbox enables lawyers to apply transcript designations, notes, categories, exhibit numbers and hyperlinks, and to share their work product with collaborators in one click.  
“This integration is a response to market demand, as law firms consider reliable cloud-based alternatives to legacy transcript and document review applications,” commented Ian Campbell, iCONECT’s President and CEO. “By utilizing iCONECT-XERA’s unique tile dashboard functionality, we continue to streamline workflow and enhance the user’s experience.”
