RHYS TAYLOR – FAMILY BARRISTER
LIFE WITHOUT CASEDO
Before I went paperless, it was sometimes a logistical feat to gethard copy papers delivered to me if I was not in chambers.Alternatively I would have to rely on very heavy-duty and time-consuming printing.
LIFE WITH CASEDO
Every case I read or meeting I attend, I am using Casedo to kettleand organise the documents into a manageable space.
Once documents are split down into individual documents, it is then easy to move that document or to exchange it for an updated copy or insert new pages without causing havoc to the overall shape of the bundle or scheme of numbering.
Emails can be dragged into a Casedo file and if there are attachments, Casedo creates a folder with the date of the email and the attachments within the folder. This enables me to keep a tight grip on the progress of an issue in emails, which are all now in one place and very easy to read as one narrative.
The split screen allows me to look at documents side by side and easilyhyperlink between different points in a bundle. I can quickly create bundles if called upon to do so and then export into a PDF format.
The search facility also helps me locate information which I cannot otherwise immediately reference.
I printed out a large document to read recently. After two minutes I put it to one side and imported the document into Casedo, which felt the more natural way to read it.
