Functionality without complexity
According to surveys, most litigators don't use litigation support software. It's too expensive, they say, and it's too complicated.
"I can't take the time to learn software just to handle one case," they say."By the time I need it again, I've forgotten how to use it."
So instead litigators index their documents in Excel or Word, struggle to manage directories full of PDF files, or pack up boxes of documents to carry home, to court, and to depositions ... and hope that the other side isn't better prepared.
We figured litigation software shouldn't be that hard to use, so we decided to do something about it. The result is our qd documentsTM software, the simple tool for litigation.
"I am very impressed with the clean simplicity of your product... I think that I've been doing this long enough to spot a winner at first glance, and you seem to have one." -- New York City Litigator
We've aimed the qd documents application at small and midsize cases -- not at mega-cases with millions of documents. As a result, it's simple. It has all the key functionality you need, but that functionality is easy to find and easy to use.
It can do a lot ...
Just because it's simple, don't assume it isn't powerful. On the contrary, the qd documents application does the things you need to do; we just didn't see the point in making those things hard to do.
The qd documents application does all the basic things you'd expect: It handles documents, transcripts, images, coded data, full text, and electronic documents. It offers powerful search tools, importing, exporting, and document coding capability.
The qd documents software provides you with powerful tools to organize and analyze your discovery materials -- notes, color coding, witness books, issue books, fact books, deposition digests and excerpts.
Easy to use
The qd documents software has a simple and familiar notebook-like layout that makes it easy to understand. And it has a browser-style interface that gets you up to speed quickly.
Standalone or shared
The qd documents application can be used by a single user on a laptop or desktop computer. Or you can share your qd documents databases over a network, with or without a separate server.
And, if you're working on a network but want to take your database with you on a plane or to a deposition, that's easy too. You can copy a single database off your network, load it onto your laptop, and you're ready to go.
The qd documents software runs on both the Mac and Windows platforms. You can support a mix of both types of computers on a qd documents network.
The qd documents application is affordable, unlike most other powerful litigation support tools. You can pay thousands of dollars for the big, complex products, or you can buy a copy of the qd documents software for just $699 (and get even better pricing for multiple copies).
