LexisNexis Sanction Presentation Software Enhanced to Deliver Improved Speed and Performance

Sanction 3.5 loads and displays evidence instantly, improving presentation throughout litigation

April 29, 2014 — NEW YORK - LexisNexis® Legal & Professional, a leading global provider of content and technology solutions, today announced the release of Sanction 3.5, its latest presentation technology that enables litigators to load and display exhibits virtually instantly so they can feel more confident that their evidence will be communicated without delays in proceedings.

“We've made some fundamental changes to the Sanction software product design to significantly improve the speed and performance of the software,” said Steve Ashbacher, vice president at LexisNexis. “The enhanced speed and stability give litigators confidence to take full control of their presentations. Users can get up and running on Sanction in as little as ten minutes, and load and display large exhibits virtually instantly during their litigation presentations.”

Sanction was one of the first software products in the presentation category, providing litigation teams – including lawyers, paralegals and litigation support directors – with a single resource to quickly assemble documents, exhibits, transcripts and video in a way that enables them to manage and present evidence in various proceedings.

“With just a few clicks, litigators can now import even the largest PDF files into their presentation and then display them in a matter of seconds,” said Ashbacher. “This eliminates awkward pauses during trials or other proceedings that disrupt a litigator's presentation of important evidence.”

Sanction 3.5 will integrate with LexisNexis CaseMap®, the company's award-winning software suite that lets litigation teams bring together all relevant facts and issues related to a case into a central repository. This new integration significantly improves the litigation workflow for CaseMap® and TextMap® users by simplifying the process of creating exhibit files and developing litigation presentations.

Sanction 3.5 has been rolled out in a pre-release version to several users at law firms of all sizes in multiple cities. The feedback has included comments, such as: “Sanction brings up our evidence quickly when we're in the middle of important proceedings” and “Sanction gives me confidence as a litigator that everything will go smoothly when I'm presenting my evidence in the courtroom or any other litigation forum.”

Sanction 3.5 also features improved video support. Users can easily manage, present and export video files for presentation and share them with other members of the litigation team.
