LAWYERS across York are being invited to an event showcasing the latest system designed by knowledge management technology company Purple Frog Text.

The company, which is based at York Science Park’s Catalyst building, will be revealing the latest version of its SynAPPS-Legal system, which is based on more than two decades of academic research and is designed to reduce the amount of time lawyers spend searching for and sharing legal information.

Masoud Saeedi, managing director of Purple Frog Text, said: “According to recent research corporate content is growing at a rate of 200 per cent each year.

“Most of this information, and the knowledge it contains, is lost to the organisations that hold it or can only be accessed in a costly and time inefficient manner. As a result, knowledge has to be recreated time and again. SynAPPS-Legal provides a system for searching, communicating and sharing information, all from a single platform.”

“It also is a key risk management tool as it ensures that all lawyers have access to previous advice, relevant legislation, case law and the issues analysis within their firm and beyond.”

Tracey Smith, managing director of York Science Park, where the technology is being showcased on Friday of next weekApril 11, added: “Purple Frog Text is an incredibly innovative company and its SynAPPS-Legal system is already proven to provide real time and cost savings for legal firms. We are delighted to host this showcase event and we hope that Yorkshire’s legal community will make the most of the opportunity to see for themselves how this new and exciting technology can make a real difference to how they operate.”
