Telephone answering specialist Moneypenny is reporting an overall 13% rise in average call volume to its dedicated legal receptionists so far in December.

Managing Director Glenn Jackson explains: “We typically see a boost in calls to our legal teams at this time of year, particularly to those receptionists who take calls for conveyancers as people seek to push their house sales over the line before the New Year. This correlates with a very busy December over in our property teams where we are taking far more calls for house valuations than we normally would expect at this time of year so it looks like conveyancers will be busy into 2014 too.

“On the flip side we are seeing a slight decrease in calls to our family lawyers at present although we fully expect that to change as it does most years in January.”

Moneypenny is available to provide holiday cover for the festive season should you need help answering your telephone calls over the Christmas and New Year period.

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
