inData was founded in 1984 when Brent Sandstrom responded to an attorney friend's wish that there were a way to easily search deposition text. Brent saw an opportunity and promptly developed a technology to convert printed deposition transcripts to searchable ASCII text. Since that time, attorney wish lists have grown and inData has happily continued to develop cutting edge technologies to help litigators prepare for and win trials. Consequently, inData currently counts 90% of the AmLaw 200 firms and 20,000 other firms or legal vendors as customers that use some combination of inData's useful software and services.
Since that first project in 1984, inData has developed a reputation for expertise in many areas, but primarily in trial presentation. In 1996 inData set the standard in this arena when it released its first trial presentation software application, TrialDirector, for retail purchase. This application enabled trial teams to dynamically mark-up documents and play video depositions to a jury on a monitor or projector screen. Since that time, TrialDirector has been enhanced to include an abundance of features using the latest technologies available to further aid litigators who want to captivate their audience and enhance memory of key facts. As a result, TrialDirector continues to be the number one trial presentation software available.
In addition to regular TrialDirector upgrades, inData continues to create new software applications to aid in the trial preparation and presentation process. A few of inData's most popular recent releases include TimeCoder Pro (2003), TimelineXpress (2004), DepoView (2007) and DepoView DVD (2008).
In addition to developing useful software, inData also responded to the call from litigators for urgently needed training and consulting services. It became clear that inData could help time-strapped trial teams expertly produce demonstrative graphics, prepare trial presentations, choreograph courtroom and war room set-up or simply run presentations during trial. And so in 1997, inData established a professional services team to do just that. Since that time, inData has worked side-by-side with litigators in hundreds of trials across the globe and developed a recognized expertise in the legal community for consulting in trials in a variety of industries. Below is a sample list of trials inData has consulted on.
And so in response to litigator demand, inData has developed into a one-stop shop for presentation expertise and technology. Whether it's software, consulting, video editing, graphic design, scanning or trial notebook creation you need, we do it. And we do it well. We look forward to sharing our expertise and passion with you to help win your next trial, arbitration or hearing.
