CENTURION Pretoria, South Africa, 9 March 2021. Sabinet is pleased to announce the migration of Sabinet African Journals (www.journals.co.za) to a new powerful technology platform. With this move to Atypon’s Literatum online publishing and website development platform, Sabinet strengthens the technology upon which this world-renowned African research rests.
Internationally recognised for the feature set it offers, the Atypon platform enables Sabinet African Journals to get mission-critical content into the hands of the practitioners and researchers who need it most.
“As interest in the African continent and its research output continues to grow, Sabinet’s investment in a new technology platform becomes a natural next step for Sabinet African Journals,” says Rosalind Hattingh, Managing Director at Sabinet. By upgrading the ‘base’ of Sabinet African Journals, we are confident that this will increase the visibility of African research and further empower researchers through enhanced access and features.
“It’s a privilege to welcome such a highly respected journal aggregator to the Literatum community,” said Marty Picco, Atypon’s General Manager. “Sabinet’s 500+ journals share African research with the rest of the world. Literatum will help Sabinet readers by making it easier to discover the right content and by providing a more enjoyable and productive user experience.”

CENTURION Pretoria, South Africa, 18 March 2021. Those entrusted with rendering justice on any level have a responsibility to ensure that they stay abreast of the latest developments in law. For this reason, judgments, and the precedents they inform, are of vital importance to practitioners of law. Judges must make their rulings taking into account previous judicial decisions on the same subject. Other legal practitioners, whether they are acting as advisor, advocate, negotiator or evaluator are obliged to stay up to date with the law in order to remain competent, prompt and diligent at all times.
When it comes to staying competitive, Sabinet Judgments provides its users with unrivalled online access to its offering. With quick and easy 24 hours access to reported and unreported South African judgments from the Supreme Court of Appeal, High Courts, Labour Court, Labour Appeal Court,
Sabinet's expertise at bringing together content and technology to deliver optimised services — and their monitoring of all judgments by court, topic and legislation daily — means that subscribers are assured of making sound, error-free decisions — ultimately saving time, effort and money.
Courts and the legal practitioners within them apply the law on a daily basis. The system of judicial precedent, or stare decisis, means that these courts are bound to follow the legal precedents set by previous decisions. Being able to do this relies largely on reported cases. To be ignorant of these judgments is to take a big risk in the eyes of the court though this can be mitigated by gaining access to reported and unreported judgments — segmented by court, topic and legislation — and supported by related articles and legislation. This in-depth knowledge of the law equates to a competitive and cost-saving advantage.
Sabinet Judgments also links to other Sabinet product offerings by flagging documents of interest. Sabinet Judgments is linked to NetLaw, Provincial NetLaw, Municipal By-laws and Bargaining Council Agreements which users can choose to access if they are already subscribed to these products or by making a once-off purchase.
Companies of all sizes are required to know both their rights as well as what is expected of them. They are subjected to the common law, as it applies to their sector, as found in court rulings and judgments. Not being on top of updates and changes to legislation not only compromises the efficient and responsible management of a company, but also introduces significant legal and financial risk.
Sabinet invites anyone interested in enriching their knowledge of the law or wanting to work faster and smarter to register for a free trial of Sabinet Judgments. Users can look forward to:

CENTURION Pretoria, South Africa, 24 June 2021. As the third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic washes over our country, businesses must continue to look for new ways of working which will unlock value not just for themselves but for their clients as well.
Digitisation — a single solution which provides a raft of benefits — streamlines operations, helps with cost-cutting, increases customer satisfaction and helps make operations sustainable.
Forced into cost cutting while simultaneously increasing performance, businesses are in a position where digitisation can provide incredible value relative not only to their current situation but also to their post-pandemic working world.
Regardless of industry, the overarching benefits of digitisation far outweigh the costs-of-entry associated with the service and, across both the short- and long-term, can be hugely beneficial.
Another benefit of digitisation is disaster recovery. Physical materials are fraught with risks and vulnerable to a number of naturally occurring dangers. They can be easily damaged, destroyed or lost. Digital materials, on the other hand, can be stored indefinitely both locally and in the cloud and duplicated easily (where copyright permits).
As the work-from-home lifestyle becomes a norm for businesses around the world, office-based materials become more and more problematic. Not only do staff run the pandemic-related risks of handling and sharing these resources, they also have to schedule times during which to collect them safely. While digitising these items makes them accessible remotely, duplication means multiple staff members can use the same resource simultaneously and, more importantly, wherever they are, regardless of time of day.
Similarly, as businesses are placed in situations where physical materials can’t be distributed easily and safely, digitisation opens the door for new avenues of income generation. Digitised items can be delivered with incredible ease, not only replacing their physical counterparts outright but also creating scenarios wherein items can be sent to individuals far beyond the usual range of printed materials (and at lower cost). Further to this, by leveraging services which ‘value-add’ the electronic delivery of digital materials, customers might be prompted to sign up for reasons other than ease of use (i.e., going green, speed, text-to-speech functionality, and more).
While the work of digitising analogue materials is quite complex, the team behind the process, with their expert experience, can make it fairly straightforward. Digitisation can even be tailored to the needs to of the customer, making for an offering which can suit budgets of all sizes. When it comes to handling with care, having an expert team that understands the importance of preservation drives the safety of the digitisation process dramatically.
