Tax and legal professionals in need of convenient on-the-go access to their loose-leaf content now have the perfect solution in the form of the Lexis® Mobile smartphone application from LexisNexis South Africa.
Lexis Mobile is SA’s first portable electronic reference tool for loose-leaf titles. Initially launched in 2014, the app was made available on iPads and laptops only. However, as of 31 March 2017, it is now available for download on smartphones with all leading LexisNexis titles included.
The app is also integrated with the Lexis® Library research solution which gives a personalised, comprehensive view of electronic legal information and enables full searching, highlighting, automatically synced annotations and copy and paste functionality across all library content.
Thabo Molefe, Divisional Director: LexisNexis Legal Information and Compliance, said the extension of the loose-leaf titles referencing tool into smartphones was a natural progression.
“As a company we continuously aim to simplify the way professionals work in this fast-paced modern world. LexisNexis clients have come to expect innovative solutions from us that curtail their every-day challenges and enhance productivity. Today, the demand for convenience and ease of access is even greater than it was just a few years ago and smartphones have become the all-inclusive portable device of choice,” said Molefe.
“The extension of Lexis Mobile into smartphones means clients can carry and reference the most up-to-date version of their LexisNexis loose-leaf subscriptions both on and offline without the need to carry around heavy files and bulky devices – and content updates occur automatically as soon as they are back online,” he added.
The innovative application overcomes many of the hurdles associated with printed loose-leaf publications. Benefits include portability, 24/7 access to up-to-date information, time, space and financial savings.
Molefe elaborated on Lexis Mobile’s capabilities and key features. “The app is intelligently equipped with advanced searching, referencing and highlighting functionalities. With its automatic updating feature, users have access to the most current information available,” Molefe said, adding that the app is customisable, allowing users to personalise the fonts and size.
Lexis® Mobile can be accessed on up to three devices per user and can be easily downloaded on iPads and Android tablets and phones as well as Windows PCs and laptops.
