LexisNexis200My Home Move Ltd (myhomemove), the UK’s largest provider of mover conveyancing services, has chosen to deploy LexisOne, an enterprise resource planning solution for legal, powered by Microsoft Dynamics AX, from LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions, a provider of technology solutions to professional services firms.

LexisOne will deliver a modern business management platform enabling myhomemove to adopt best practice methodologies to manage its multi-site and multi-entity operation and support the firm’s ambitious growth plans.

myhomemove is building its new headquarters in Leicester and plans are afoot to recruit 100 more staff taking the number of employees to 850 across the firm’s seven offices.

A strategic investment by the organisation, LexisOne will be initially deployed within myhomemove’s finance department, creating a common data structure and seamless environment across its business areas to ensure a ‘single version of the truth’.

The department will support doubling in size of business volume in tune with growth plans, with only a minimal increase in headcount. This will be facilitated by the automated processes and advanced, dynamic reporting capabilities offered by LexisOne.

“We need a solution that is more than just an accounts system,” explained Paul Tennant, IT director at myhomemove. “To support our business expansion plans, we need complete visibility of our operation and to this end it is imperative that all the financial areas are integrated.

“LexisOne will give us a single business management system to help us streamline the various components of the operation. Additionally, it will give us a development platform to create new applications within LexisOne to help meet evolving business requirements immediately and in the long term.”

myhomemove is already a current user of next generation legal workflow and case management system, Lexis Visualfiles. With both Visualfiles and LexisOne integrated, myhomemove will benefit greatly from processing efficiency across multiple business areas and enhanced business continuity.

“Organisations today need flexibility to adapt in a changing business environment,” Andy Sparkes, general manager at LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions commented.

“This in turns requires quick decision making based on real-time, accurate business data. Visualfiles and LexisOne will provide myhomemove a compelling and reliable platform upon which to conduct business operation and achieve its business growth goals. myhomemove’s adoption of LexisOne further cements our already long standing partnership with the firm. We are delighted.”

LexisOne is an ERP solution for legal, which goes beyond traditional practice management.  LexisOne helps firms proactively manage costs, prepare and track matter budgets, improve control, make informed decisions and optimise resources to deliver greater value to clients.

Powered by Microsoft Dynamics AX, LexisOne harmonises financial, human resources, productivity and performance management to provide the insight, flexibility and scalability that firms need to rapidly adapt in an ever changing world.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
