Contact us today to find out how we can help

Buying a property can be a stressful and exciting time in a person’s life, so buyers want the process to move as smoothly and as quickly as possible. Iamproperty, an estate agency services business, has recently found that property sellers’ biggest frustration was the fact that the conveyancing process takes too long, and 90% of property sellers would pay more for a speedier process.

Moreover, our team have found that a large proportion of conveyancing solicitors find themselves frustrated with the out of the box Proclaim case management system throughout the legal processes of buying and selling property.

Legal Practice Support have outlined below, tips on how to speed up the process by developing your Proclaim case management system.


How to speed up the conveyancing process by developing your case management system


Whether your client is buying a freehold or leasehold property, the legal transfer of property ownership from one party to another involves many steps for buyer and sellers’ solicitors. From carrying out local authority searches, obtaining offers from mortgage lenders, obtaining surveys, agreements in principle, and exchanging contracts, it is no surprise that clients find the process overwhelming.

The most beneficial feature of Proclaim is that it is extremely flexible and can be developed in many ways. Proclaim can be developed to allow for process automation, which can be particularly beneficial for Conveyancing Solicitors due to the amount of steps that are needed to be taken on each file. Conveyancing automation is possible for many manual tasks within the conveyancing process using Proclaim software, saving file handlers time and allowing them to focus on other, larger tasks at hand.

It is always a good idea to provide regular updates to clients on the property sale or purchase. The system can be developed to allow for automated client updates throughout the house sales and purchase process. This will improve customer satisfaction and save file handlers the time of having to manually update each client.

With the right setup, you can ensure that all key reports are scheduled to run automatically and to be disclosed to predefined contacts or locations at specified times. Thus ensuring you are never missing the information you need to make key business decisions.

Another way in which your Proclaim system can be developed to speed up the conveyancing process is by allowing for third party integrations with software, such as InfoTrack. This solution greatly assists with practice management by improving efficiency for law firms. It assists by removing the need for a number of small administrative tasks so fee earners can focus on more important tasks. 

Users have the ability pre-populate orders within InfoTrack with all documents within the case management system using the two-way flow of real time information. This will be automatically returned within your case management system. Some of the main benefits of integrating your case management system with InfoTrack include:

  • Improved efficiency due to automation of tasks, such as data entry using pre-filled documents
  • Improved compliance and mitigates the risk involved with re-keying information
  • All key information is accessible within InfoTrack and your CMS
  • Great user experience

Satisfied client stories

"Since we first began utilising the services of Legal Practice Support, we have seen a dramatic improvement in the capabilities of our Proclaim system. The system has seen substantial enhancements with regards to automation; tasks that previously could take staff hours, can now be completed within minutes."

Mark Brierley

Director, Beacon Law

"Prior to their (Legal Practice Support) involvement, we had little to no reporting; and what we did have was generally manually accumulated data on spreadsheets. Since Legal Practice Support began enhancing our system, they have enabled us to receive key management information as and when required, which allows us to evaluate key areas of the business, as well as provide overviews of fee earners' case progression and their performance amongst other things."

Mr L Ali

Director, Hunter Price Khan

" We have had the out of the box Proclaim system for many years, and whilst we were content with its performance, it wasn't until we utilised the services of Legal Practice Support to help streamline and automate our workflows that we really saw its potential to save time and money by maximising the efficiency of our workflows."
