Fletcher Longstaff Limited, the residential conveyancing and property law firm, is investing in Lexis Visualfiles, legal workflow and case management solution, to drive profitability. By streamlining and automating business processes, the firm will achieve time savings and efficiency gains that will improve productivity and enable the business to easily scale in tune with strategic objectives.

The Visualfiles Conveyancing Accelerator provides access to a comprehensive suite of conveyancing workflow, from quotation and instruction through to linked sale and purchase, remortgage and transfer of equity. Fletcher Longstaff will also be able to use the flexible tools within Visualfiles to integrate it in third party applications and enable customisation of their business processes where necessary. Moreover, the Visualfiles Online web portal will provide 24/7 accessibility for clients and work providers via mobile and web.

“We are investing in Visualfiles to enable us to stay a step ahead in the game,” said Adam Cheal, Director at Fletcher Longstaff Limited. “We are taking a comprehensive and long-term view for technology adoption. While initially, Visualfiles will help us to get off the ground quickly, the flexibility it gives us to customise the platform and deploy other complementary applications is something no other solution on the market is able to offer. In adopting Visualfiles, we are future-proofing our technology; and over time, as we create our own unique workflows and processes, we will be developing our own IP. For a firm of our size, this would not be possible without a system like Visualfiles.”

By using a combination of the Visualfiles Pro2SQL reporting warehouse and Microsoft’s Power BI solution, the firm will be able to provide access to any data within the system, including real-time reports, management insight and key performance indicators to internal and external parties as necessary.

“Despite what we hear about the property market in the UK, our business is on an upward trajectory. The business insight that Visualfiles will give us will play a key role in enabling us to grow our competitive advantage,” Adam added.
