Opus 2 Magnum 6.2 Further Streamlines Workflows for Lawyers, Legal Support Professionals and Law Firm IT

Multiple enhancements to exhibit stickering and improved video handling top a long list of updates designed to create new efficiencies and further simplify the user experience

San Francisco, California, UNITED STATES

SAN FRANCISCO, July 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Opus 2 International, a global litigation services and software development company, today released the latest version of its award-winning transcript management and case analysis software, Opus 2 Magnum™. Now available to all Opus 2 Magnum enterprise clients, Magnum 6.2 represents another leap forward in Opus 2’s mission to streamline workflows and create new efficiencies for legal teams, legal support professionals and law firm IT professionals. The new feature set reflects Opus 2’s ongoing practice of seeking and implementing client feedback to guide its product roadmap, resulting in solutions that legal professionals actually want and will use every day.

Improvements to Opus 2 Magnum in this new version include:

  • Smart exhibit stickers that streamline the application of custom digital stamps to documents with drag-and-drop repositioning, dramatically reducing the costs, delays and reprocessing associated with the manual application of stickers and pre-marking exhibits. Instead of extracting documents to be stickered by hand or with third-party software and then re-imported, users of Magnum 6.2 can administer and modify their own custom document stamps right in the online workspace. Contact info@opus2.com to access a recorded tour of Smart, Drag-and-Drop Exhibit Stickers.
  • Improved video handling to help law firms maximize the return on their investments in deposition video. Opus 2 Magnum’s Video Uploader now simplifies queueing of multiple video files for import and minimizes the impact on system resources while large video files are loaded.  As always, Opus 2 Magnum automatically creates video clips of transcript designations (when synced video is present) and makes them available for export. Magnum 6.2 supports multiple export and compression types (MPEG and MP4) for optimal compatibility with downstream tools.
  • Additional enhancements to the user experience, including the ability to execute keyword searches across the active workspace from any screen within Opus 2 Magnum; more prominent brackets for transcript designation exports, which makes overlapping designations easier to analyze; and, for law firm clients deploying one of the Magnum enterprise-licensing models, new branding and customization features that incorporate the law firm’s logo into select interfaces.

“The new features in Magnum 6.2 are a direct result of our commitment to continuous improvement at Opus 2,” said Graham Smith-Bernal, founder and CEO for Opus 2 International. “We’ve made it a practice to listen carefully to feedback from our clients so we can incorporate their insight and their evolving needs into the latest versions of our products. We’re excited to offer these enhancements to our clients, not least because we know they will make an immediate and lasting difference in the work they do.”
