myhomemove, the UK’s largest provider of mover conveyancing services, has selected Lexis Visualfiles 2014 as the firm’s next generation workflow and case management system from LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions, a leading provider of technology solutions for the legal sector.

Visualfiles 2014 will provide a modern, intuitive and uniform business environment across the firm’s five offices in the UK and support myhomemove to achieve its ambitious growth targets. myhomemove was named the ‘best conveyancing provider’ at the 2014 What Mortgage Awards.

The firm will enhance business efficiency and productivity, to support its goal of continuous improvement to customer service. Over 475 employees will use the new Microsoft Outlook-style Visualfiles 2014 desktop interface, taking advantage of the key performance indicator monitoring capabilities offered by the solution.

This will provide staff faster access to the most current information in real-time to further strengthen decision making. The production of management information will be simplified as the comprehensive Microsoft SQL reporting technology provides a dedicated environment for reporting within Visualfiles 2014.

Visualfiles 2014 includes extensions to the traditional Visualfiles development language and embraces industry standard .NET capabilities. This will expand myhomemove’s capability to rapidly build new business solutions in Visualfiles 2014 as well as create unique applications to accommodate regulatory and other business-level changes.

“Our investment in Visualfiles 2014 is part of a major technology refresh as we look to embark on the next phase of business growth,” commented Paul Tennant, IT Director at myhomemove.

“We thoroughly investigated all the major case management solutions on the market before making our decision. Visualfiles 2014 came up trumps as a proven, modern system that can robustly scale in line with our ever-multiplying business transactions.

It also provides us with the capability to further develop and customise the solution to meet our changing business needs. In fact, it is the lowest risk/highest reward option – as is realistically possible with any technology investment.”

myhomemove chose Visualfiles 2014 for its proven track record and scalability. Today, more than 60 percent of conveyancing transactions in the UK’s 10 largest conveyancing firms are undertaken in Visualfiles. This combined with LexisNexis’ partnership approach, the company’s understanding of the sector and a defined product development roadmap, made Visualfiles 2014 a compelling solution.

Nigel Williams, Visualfiles 2014 Product Manager at LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions, said, “Visualfiles 2014 is the solution of choice for the conveyancing sector because, in addition to all the standard functionality that defines a case management system, it enables firms to easily customise it to their specific business operations – supporting innovation and providing a foundation for the future.  Due to the frequent regulatory changes in this sector, such capability is a business imperative.”

Lexis Visualfiles is the most widely used legal workflow and case management system in the UK, with more than 26,000 registered users in firms ranging from five to over 1,000 employees. It is a proven, flexible and powerful entity-based system that allows firms to control their business processes.

The solution’s unique rapid application development capabilities empower organisations to customise the system to easily and quickly accommodate new market developments and changing business requirements.
