ETSOS makes it a November to remember

The UK’s fastest-growing search provider, ETSOS, has double reason to celebrate this November.

Next week, ETSOS, a Legal Futures Associate, will be marking its appointment as preferred supplier to the Society of Licensed Conveyancers (SLC) with an exclusive sponsorship of the SLC’s ‘Embracing the future of conveyancing’ conference. This will add to the good news of earlier in the month when it was confirmed that in less than two years of trading, ETSOS has broken through the 1,500 registered user mark.

ETSOS managing director Philip Natusch is delighted with the seal of approval: “We’re very pleased to be partnering so closely with the SLC and their confidence in our product and our people is testament to the quality of the former and the calibre of the latter.

“For a company committed to transforming search provision and technology, it’s a real boost to be recognised in this way and we’re looking forward to serving SLC members in the future.”

Since its launch in spring 2010, ETSOS has outperformed the market with 18 months of sustained growth. Its new client acquisition rate for the last quarter was 47% higher than in the previous quarter, which was in turn 35% higher than the previous period. It has reached the 1500-user mark six months ahead of target.

Philip Natusch comments: “ We set out with a very basic premise – if you give people exactly what they want, they will buy. We have plenty of experience of the sector, we listened to what those in it were saying and their message was very clear – give us simplicity and service when it comes to search.

“We couldn’t think of anything more simple than a free-to-use, Amazon-style online supermarket for searches and related conveyancing products, so that’s what we developed; backing it up with good people on the ground to ensure that simple never gets complicated.

“Judging from the numbers, it’s gone down very well and we’re now focusing on new ideas like our conveyancer/estate agent referral and quotation system to deliver even more value to the customer base.”

Lawyers must now draw on the data and drive change

Chris Marston 2014

The results from this year’s legal services consumer tracker survey make for interesting reading. In its sixth year, the research finds that a firm’s reputation continues to grow in importance, holding its top slot as the number one factor influencing choice of lawyer, with price remaining a strong second, reflected in a shift towards higher numbers of fixed-fee transactions. Alongside, it reports that trust in lawyers has declined to 42%, from 47% in 2012. It’s useful information as far as it goes, but what is the sector going to do with it?
