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.”

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
