Nuix launches renumbering feature tailored to Australian national court framework

SYDNEY – 8 May 2020 – Global software company Nuix ( today announced the Nuix Discover renumbering feature is immediately available for Nuix Discover SaaS customers in version 10.3.004. Law firms, legal service providers, and corporate legal counsel can work with a bespoke renumbering system that is unique to the Australian legal and regulatory market.

First introduced in 2006 in Practice Note CM6 on Electronic Technology in Litigation, the Australian Federal Court laid out a specific document numbering system that effectively identifies clients, custodians, and documents in one alphanumeric string. Australian courts, law firms, and regulators all use this method, now part of the Central Practice Note for document identification.

With the product enhancements, Nuix Discover customers can now select and submit case documents for renumbering. Once completed, documents are renumbered and reorganized to be compliant with most Australian document production guidelines. Options include the ability to exclude certain file types, create custom slip sheets, and error handling. Importantly, the renumbering process includes the ability to endorse the header with the new document number. 

“As routine users of Nuix Discover, we’re excited about the introduction of the new numbering solution from Nuix, which will bring significant efficiencies to our process,” said Kate Clark, Executive Director at Enhanced Litigation Management Solutions. “Our team finds Nuix Discover easy to use and fast; this new feature means we can get the documents to the lawyers for review even faster. This solution also means that ELMS is now able to process documents in-house from start to end, reducing the cost of producing the documents with the Australian document ID. We very much look forward to using the renumbering tool as part of our regular process.”

“With the dramatic increase in Nuix Discover customers in Australia this last year, we recognized the need to suit the requirements of the Australian market,” said Enzo Lisciotto, Head of Nuix eDiscovery in APAC. “This new feature allows our customers to streamline the renumbering process within the Nuix Discover platform and provides a true end-to-end solution, without using scripts or other techniques to comply with the Australian numbering format.”
