Land Registry-DPS integrationThe recent integration between DPS’s conveyancing software and Land Registry’s Business Gateway allows users to submit their AP1 form online, straight from their case management system.

DPS Convey saves solicitors time by entering all the relevant information stored within the system into the form automatically, while allowing them to amend it if necessary and attach any supporting documents associated with the matter that they would like to submit with the form.

As the online submission of the AP1 implies a reduction in the price of the service, solicitors are able to pass this saving on to their clients and offer them more competitive rates. Wanting to make the process smoother for their clients and help them meet the necessary requirements for successful submissions, DPS have undertaken this integration work whose final result is the real-time data transfer to and from their case management software and Business Gateway. Once completed, the submission is then saved against the right file in DPS.

All new and existing users can access this functionality at a click of a button.

Osman Ismail, DPS Software’s managing director commented on the news: “The end goal of the recent integration is enabling law firms to further reduce the amount of manual work and accelerate the completion of property transactions thus becoming more profitable and  efficient. As high volumes of work are fortunately a common denominator in today’s conveyancing market, completing transactions time-effectively has become of major importance. The bridge between our system and Business Gateway enables users to do just that-deliver a fast service that generates profits.”

“Land Registry is pleased that DPS Software is now integrating with our systems through Business Gateway, our automated service for case management systems to access our property records,” said James Rippin, Business Gateway product manager at Land Registry. “This will enable their clients to have seamless, automated connectivity when lodging applications to change the register– improving accuracy and speed whilst reducing risk.”

DPS’s conveyancing system was designed to respond to the needs of today’s conveyancing specialists by providing them with over 600 ready-to-use templates and features including online SDLT submission and standard & amendable workflows for conveyancing work.

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
