We are definitely in the electronic age of technology. Paper files can be hard to keep track of and keep secure. Aptus provides a solution: electronic copies for clients with a private link to a secure repository where clients can view and download a full PDF, a mini PDF, or a .PTX (e-trans file).

Exhibits can be viewed and downloaded digitally, and files are available at your fingertips whenever you need them.

Benefits of electronic copies:

  • hyper-linked exhibits in PDF transcripts

  • electronically-signed transcripts

  • all exhibits included in one secure link

  • can be easily emailed to multiple counsel

Out with the old and in with the new! Technology is an ever-changing force in the legal industry and we are here to make sure your firm is kept up-to-date with the latest advancements.

Contact your sales rep to make sure you’re accessing all the features your electronic deliverables have to offer.

1The Aptus team streamlines our process as much as possible for our clients. We focus on quality and efficiency to get the job done – and to do that, we deliver your video depositions to you on one disc.

While many firms send two separate discs for video depositions, we stick with the one to make it quicker and easier for you to keep track of each depo. Focusing on quality over quantity, Aptus makes it easy on you and gives you the one thing you need to help with your case in one streamlined package.

What Is Included?

  • load files for trial presentation and case management software
  • synced video files
  • full and mini PDFs of testimony and exhibits

Our services are designed for the convenience of our clients. Contact your sales rep to schedule your deposition with us today.

We are excited to dive into the new year! As we continue our expansion, we are fortunate to add two new members to our team. Jenna Schamber and Jaclyn Swe both come from remarkable backgrounds and we look forward to working with them in 2014.

“With all the technology out there, advancements in new software or products can definitely get overwhelming. Some is so specific that it might not be the best time to implement it, but we want to be aware of it at the very least.” – Mike Tisa, Director of Litigation Technology
The holiday season is in full swing and we are asking our clients what is at the top of their wish lists. We feel a strong contender for the number one spot should be technology. More specifically, an investment in a court reporting firm that is staying current with the latest products and developments in litigation technology.

Aptus Court Reporting makes it a priority to invest and research the latest trends in technology and help firms ease into using new processes when applicable. We currently offer clients a strong lineup of services to keep our company and our clients on the forefront of what is most valuable in the legal, litigation, and technology worlds including:

· Web-based Video Conferencing
· Digital Recording for video depositions
· Online Exhibit Repository (Hosting)
· Real-Time Reporting
· Conference Rooms with HDMI and VGA inputs on the table (San Diego office only)

Technology can seem like a big hurdle to overcome since it is always changing. However, the correct use and the proper knowledge of it can make efficiency and production easier with optimal results. What sets our court reporting firm apart is our drive and enthusiasm to not only connect with our clients, but making sure they understand the value our services provide.

Got a plan in place for your litigation and technology needs in 2014? We will continue to push to bring you the latest and best for the new year.

We want to wish all of our clients happy holidays!
