Sep, 07 2021 | Posted by Michael Dango
Legal professionals in the U.S. use Bates stamping to apply a set of identifying numbers to a PDF portfolio to label and identify them. As an indexing system, Bates numbers are an effective method way to reference and search for PDF documents. As a process, Bates stamping can be painfully boring and time-consuming.
Manual Bates Numbering Is Tedious
In eDiscovery, stamping individual Bates numbers can be a particularly burdensome task. No matter how straightforward you think the case is, the volume of documents you have to produce is somehow always more than you expect. Opposing counsel always seems to request an overwhelming — and overly broad — range of documents. Things are gettings worse when you encounter MSG, PST, EMLX files that you have to process.
Manually stamping the individual documents can be a mind-numbing time-suck, especially when it comes to emails. No matter what eDiscovery tools you use to add Bates stamp to your PDF files, the process will inevitably be a bottleneck in your workflow. For example, email files cannot be Bates numbered in their native format. Not only do you have to convert each native production file to a PDF format, you then have to add Bates page numbers to each file.
