Introducing OnRecord, by analogue.DIGITAL
(Author: Jill Canvin, analogue.DIGITAL) No more carrier bags of documents for you to sort out! OnRecord is designed to help litigants in person to help themselves and for you to help them more easily.
We have developed the OnRecord mobile app to help litigants in person to gather and manage their evidence online. Their evidence, in the form of written (or dictated) records, with attached photos, screenshots, documents, video or audio recordings, tagged for place and time, which they input to their mobile device, is stored on our secure, online platform where it can be accessed by the litigant or by permitted professionals offering support or advice. The platform provides a review the records. Data can be selected to use, organised into a chronology and downloaded to use in statements.
The app, in its combination with the online platform, is ideally suited to anyone who needs help to organise complex evidence of events over time. The evidence is uploaded, stored and can be downloaded in a coherent and standardised format, making it easier for advisors to monitor events over time, provide support, help develop an argument and prepare a bespoke statement, ultimately, to assist decision-makers. Records, with their uploaded attachments, can be backdated and evidence can be filed under an unlimited number of headings (‘threads’) to help achieve clarity. The choice of threads can be guided by the circumstances and assisted by legal advice. Our website at onrecord.tech gives extensive advice about how and when the app can be used as well as helpful information about a wide range of issues.
The online platform does not allow evidence to be edited or deleted. It organises uploaded data on a timeline and map, in chronological order with linked attachments. Records can be monitored in real time, searched and filtered and then exported in a crystal clear chronology with all attachments linked to their original record. The chronology can be exhibited to a statement, used to prepare bespoke statements or cut and pasted into a template. To help advisors to see how the mobile app and platform can be used, explore some sample cases with uploaded evidence HERE, logging in with:
With vulnerable users in mind, the mobile app has a number of security features such as an interchangeable icon, emergency logout and PIN or fingerprint login. Settings allow the option of no records to be stored on the mobile. Our intention is to keep the mobile app as a free download but to make access to the platform and its download features a subscription service in due course.
OnRecord was the idea of a solicitor/advocate with long experience in the family and criminal courts and was prompted by the surge in numbers of litigants in person and the drive for modernisation of the courts. Analogue.DIGITAL is keen to work with organisations who are supporting and assisting litigants to further develop OnRecord and any other digital solutions to promote access to justice.
