The first integration of its kind, the new system allows VIsualfiles case management users to access and utilise the government’s electronic signature facilities whilst working within Visualfiles.
As deeds are completed, they can be quickly and easily sent by secure email, signed, returned and stored – greatly simplifying the existing processes and eliminating the risk of hard copy documents being lost or delayed in the post.
The new product aligns with Zylpha’s Land Registry integration, combining with its other related eSignature secure communication and anti-money laundering (AML) products to deliver ‘a toolset for modern conveyancers keen to deliver efficient services to clients’.
Tim Long, chief executive officer of Zylpha, says: “Signing a mortgage deed electronically through Visualfiles helps to simplify the process for both the lawyer and their client. It’s one less thing for them to complete manually, can be completed in seconds and they don’t have to worry about it getting lost or damaged in the post.”
“Our products have always enjoyed success as they make lawyers lives considerably easier. This new integration is in keeping with this principle and we expect demand from our Visualfiles customers to be exceedingly strong.”
“Indeed, we have already received a number of initial orders from pre-launch marketing activity,” he concludes.
