Working with Apple files can cause eDiscovery Headaches

The corporate market has historically operated on Windows-based machines, and therefore Microsft software. As a result, most eDiscovery software was built to handle exclusively Microsft based files. As Apple has become a more prominent player in this market, and as the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend continues to grow, firms are seeing an increasing amount of Mac files in their ESI.  Attempting to run those files through legacy eDiscovery software can result in errors, corrupted files, or missed data.

Recently Lexbe announced it’s capability to handle files from the increasingly common Apple based work applications Apple iWork, iMessage and Notes. The Lexbe cloud-based platform allows our development team to quickly react to emerging trends and deploy instant updates to all users, without requiring our customers to perform cumbersome updates or purchased software upgrades.

Not only does Lexbe process files from Apple devices for e-discovery, but it is also fully compatible to operate on Apple Macs, iPads and iPhones. The Lexbe platform enables lawyers involved in complex litigation and working on Apple devices to access their cases at any time and from anywhere there is a network connection.

If you anticipate receiving Mac based files as part of an ESI collection, we invite you to download our free eDiscovery Checklist: Collecting, Processing and Producing Mac OS and iOS Evidence.

Lexbe Redesigns Platform Interface

In early November 2017, Lexbe deployed a revamped graphical user interface (GUI) for its eDiscovery platform. The updated GUI follows Google’s guidelines for Material Design, allowing for a consistent experience across software applications. By following these industry standards Lexbe users are able to intuitively navigate their user dashboard, locate menus, and perform search functions. Improving the user experience has the tangible benefit of accelerating document review.

While the interface has been revamped, Lexbe has kept popular features in place. Advanced search, the integrated document viewer, our proprietary Uber Index, and all of the other core applications our users depend on are untouched except for modernizing their appearance and functionality.

Lexbe’s advanced search application still allows users to perform comprehensive searches
Lexbe users will still view documents in an integrated tabbed environment.
DIY productions and briefcases are still core components of our platform.
