A document bundle is a collection of files presented in a specific order that can be used to present information in a Court hearing. An electronic document bundle is the same process, but created digitally and in a far more efficient way.
There is nothing wrong with building court bundles manually, but if you want to save time, paper and keep your files/bundles secure with automatically created hyperlinked index pages and bookmarks, then electronic document bundling is the way to go. The legal technology is recognised as "best practice" by UK law courts and Zylpha Bundling is widely accepted as the "go-to" tool for legal teams of all sizes.

To start another document bundle simply delete the previous one from your online account. Once a bundle has been deleted we cannot retrieve it, so be sure you want to create a new one before you begin.

Zylpha document bundling is available for FREE online, as Solo online, or on an installed Pay-As-You-Go basis. Alternatively we have an Enterprise price plan for legal teams.
We will continually monitor your PAYG bundle usage, and if you reach a point where it may be beneficial for you to move to Enterprise, we will let you know. Typically, an Enterprise installation would take a few days to set up, but you would still have access to PAYG software in the interim.
Similarly, if you’re using our Enterprise plan and have a reduction in the volume of court bundles you need to create, we will advise you when it comes to the renewal period of your contract. The Enterprise to PAYG switch is quicker due to PAYG being available immediately.
