Award-winning technology provider InfoTrack has today announced a quicker and easier way to find and analyse information on global companies and individuals.

Sourcing information from local and global jurisdictions often involves convoluted search processes and the manual drawing of organisational structures and relationships. To simplify the process, InfoTrack has launched a new service whereby clients have access to a range of comprehensive reports that access key data sources, agents and repositories around the world at the click of a button.

The information is then illustrated using REVEAL, InfoTracks’ data visualisation tool, organising the information into an illustrative structure in an interactive workspace that features shareholders, directors, locations and any associated organisations. REVEAL gives the user an ability to quickly view past and present structures of the organisation, using a unique timeline feature.

Barry Vickery, General Manager of Corporate Services comments “In our daily lives, we are now used to search engine functionality as a convenient way of finding information quickly. However, we still have to explore the results in detail to ensure reliability. Similarly, law firms are currently spending much of their time looking for, and analysing business information that is more difficult to find. Our new set of reports, available through the InfoTrack platform, are generated using technology that has direct connections with trusted sources around the world, removing the need to access multiple websites.

Barry continues, “Taking Companies House as an example, our technology consolidates information from both Companies House Direct and Companies House Beta and then provides smart technology in the form of REVEAL, so the information is visualised into a workspace. So, not only is the information reliable but the technology adds real value by making it very easy to explore past and present structures and shareholder information. That saves precious time whilst giving users a confidence in the information procured.”

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

Catrina Denvir

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
