I am often asked by customers about why they would want to make the change from lexis.com to Lexis Advance. I would like to discuss the top 5 fears about making the switch.
Fear #1: I’m afraid of incurring a large bill for my client – they just don’t want to pay for research like they used to.
Fear #2: I’ve heard that on Lexis Advance, you have to use Natural Language…..I prefer Boolean Search Logic.
Fear #3: It takes too long to learn a whole new platform. There is that saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.”
Fear #4: I like “old Lexis” – Lexis.com; why did you have to change?
Fear #5: Do I have to get a whole new id and password for Lexis Advance? It seems like I learned my Lexis.com id and password yesterday.
I hope that I have helped to answer many of your fears about making the switch from lexis.com to Lexis Advance. Please comment below if you have any additional questions.
If you are interested in making the switch, complete the form to contact a sales representative and learn more about Lexis Advance.
Thanks for these tips.
I would be interested in a discussion of the differences between Westlaw and Lexis regarding content and pricing.
Great question! There are a lot of different pricing options for Lexis Advance such as subscription vs. transactional plans; in plan / out of plan sources and documents; etc. A customer representative will reach out directly to you (early next week) to talk about the pricing options for Lexis Advance, and can also help to identify any additional questions you may have in this regard.
Thanks again for reaching out! -Amanda Bales
