Following the unveiling of its Laserform Hub platform at this year’s Law Expo event in October, Advanced Legal has now released the first portal for use by legal firms – specifically tied to submissions for the government’s Companies House gateway.
The Laserform Hub has been designed to meet the needs of law firms looking to benefit from the government’s ‘digital by default’ strategy. The Hub will allow electronic form submission to multiple government portals from a single location and provides one place for firms to manage multiple agency submissions.
The Companies House gateway is the first in a series of functionally rich and efficient portals to reside within the Hub, which is designed to reduce form completion time, minimise data errors and give fee earners more time to focus on other activities.
Advanced has worked closely with clients including several top 100 firms to deliver a Companies House gateway that will revolutionise the way legal forms are submitted. The service provides legal teams with an online forms library, submission validation, cross gateway management and a full audit history to promote compliance.
Richard Saxton, from Higgs & Sons, who have been using the software said, “I’ve been delighted with the Laserform Hub from Advanced Legal. Since adopting the service, we’ve seen legal charges registered in record time and the associated concerns over the looming 21-day deadline removed. We’ve found the Laserform Hub to be highly effective yet incredibly easy to use.”
Doug Hargrove, MD at Advanced Legal commented, “The Laserform Hub is a completely unique solution. We are the only supplier to the UK legal market that is addressing the Government’s ‘digital by default’ strategy with a unified solution that will provide multi-agency access from a single hub.”
The Laserform Hub will continue to grow during 2015, with plans in place to release access to the Land Registry and HMRC gateways early next year with further releases to follow.
