Simplify Embrace Visualfiles Case Management System

Simplify has selected LexisNexis Visualfiles as its group-wide software platform for case and legal process management.

Having already run a successful pilot, Simplify will now complete a phased roll-out of the software platform.

Visualfiles is now the case management software of choice for conveyancers with seven of the 10 largest UK conveyancing firms using the software.

The February collaboration of both Simplify Group and My Home Move created the leading and largest conveyancing powerhouse in the UK, processing in excess of 130,000 property transactions per year under the Simplify brand.

Known for their technological investments and innovative uses of cutting edge technology, Simplify has continued to build investments in technology in order to ‘enable clients, partner introducers and panel conveyancing firms to benefit from enhanced levels of service and visibility of their property transactions.’

Simon Farthing, Commercial & Marketing Director at LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions, commented:

“We are incredibly pleased to welcome Simplify into the Visualfiles family. We share their passion for providing a better customer experience in the conveyancing sector and are excited by the opportunity to build on the great success we have shared with My Home Move for so many years. With so much change in the property sector, making the right choice of technology is critical. We are committed to supporting conveyancing lawyers to improve their productivity and efficiency whilst increasing customer service every step of the way. This consolidation cements Visualfiles’ position as the solution of choice for the UK conveyancing market and puts us in the enviable position of working with the biggest names in Conveyancing law.”

David Grossman, Simplify’s CEO said:

“We believe that Simplify has the opportunity to shape the conveyancing market for the better over the coming years. We aim to make life simpler for our customers, introducers, partners and colleagues. With many thousands of people depending on us each year to have the best experience in their property transaction, our business needs a proven technology platform to deliver on our ambition. I am pleased we have selected Visualfiles to deliver our goal.”

David Matthewman, Simplify CIO, added:

“This pilot has been an exceptionally good introduction of Visualfiles to the whole of our business. For users, the project has provided a taste of what’s to come – the kind of productivity it will deliver is tangible and remarkable. From an IT perspective, the pilot is a huge success; it was ambitious, fast paced and delivered right on time. This has been helped significantly by the manner in which the Visualfiles team engaged with us, their understanding of our business and systems alongside the training they provided. Large, business-critical technology implementations of this nature require meticulous planning to be executed this well, it has been an incredible team effort with LexisNexis as a core part of the team.”
