Concordance 7.0 Is Released

Concordance 7.0 Is ReleasedDATAFLIGHT Software Inc., based in Los Angeles, has introduced the latest version of its Concordance software, incorporating support for transcripts, deposition management, and e-mail repositories.

Concordance 7.0 can be used by small and large firms alike, reports president Jeff Lipsman.

The upgrade includes a full suite of new features for deposition digests, notes, issue codes, and hyperlinks, advises Lipsman. Transcripts can be displayed and printed in traditional formats (with page and line numbering). An advanced report writer allows users to produce "Question & Answers," line-radius and digest reports.

The new version is compatible with the LiveNote real-time transcription program, notes Dataflight. It can load that program's transcript format, while preserving all annotations, says Lipsman.

Dataflight also announced the creation of new strategic alliances to add support for trial presentation packages, including Visionary, Sanction, and TrialPro.

Concordance 7.0 also features an expanded database capability, allowing users to search up to 128 databases of 32 million documents each, it says.

The upgrade also supports word processing features, including "drag and drop" from Microsoft's Excel, Word, and other programs.
