Release Notes

Future Additions

We regularly add new functionality to the Lexbe eDiscovery Platform (LEP).  One of the advantages of the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model is that we can make ongoing improvements without requiring users to download and re-install software. Improvements are prioritized based on user feedback. Please let us know what you would like to see by contacting professionalservices@lexbe.com or your eDiscovery Solutions Director.
