Edward Mellor sought to provide an enhanced and tailored conveyancing experience for their clients, strengthen relationships with their panel of local conveyancing solicitors and improve business intelligence around the large volume of transactions their agency generates. They embedded Hoowla’s cloud based conveyancing panel management software at the start of 2015 to achieve just that.

edward-mellor-hoowla-conveyancing

 

Hoowla’s panel management software is used by over 70 members of Edward Mellor’s team along with their panel of conveyancing solicitors and their clients. Hoowla generates instant conveyancing quotes for home-movers and refers them directly to Edward Mellors panel firms. Edward Mellors team monitor successful instructions and help win work for their solicitors, all supported and streamlined by Hoowla’s conveyancing technology. A suite of business intelligence reports provide detailed insight from quotes right through to completions across the agency. Built in accounts ensure all financial matters linked to referrals are covered too.

Edward Mellor’s panel of conveyancing firms have also embraced Hoowla’s conveyancing technology by adopting their case management software to progress cases from instruction through to post completion. The firms spared no time embedding the software into their practices and quickly familiarised themselves with Hoowla. The intuitively designed software and round the clock support from the Hoowla team ensured the transition went smoothly.

Suzanne Wharton, Operations Manager at Edward Mellor comments; “Our staff and the solicitors in our panel find it easy to use and it has streamlined the process of referring clients to our panel. With complete visibility of the progression of all of our properties we can quickly react to anything that may slow down progress and step in to support our panel firms. Hoowla helps us maintain a great working relationship with our solicitors and provide a fantastic conveyancing experience for all of our clients. The back-office set up is also very easy to use, including setting up users, managing invoicing and reporting. The team at Hoowla have been supporting us every step of the way, listening to our feedback and have been quick to react and enhance their service incorporating our ideas.”

Adam Curtis, CEO of Hoowla, comments; “We’ve worked closely with the team at Edward Mellor, with every member of their panel and most importantly listened to their feedback to ensure Hoowla really delivers results for them. Our customisable workflow technology has allowed Edward Mellor and their panel firms to really tailor the home-moving experience for their clients. Our team thoroughly enjoys working with such a modern, progressive agency and group of conveyancing firms.”

Hoowla now helps to keep Edward Mellor and their clients in the loop on the progress of all their property transactions. The home-moving experience has been enhanced with the team regularly seeing clients log in for updates on their case, to ask questions and provide information. Everyone benefits from access to the online case tracking and collaboration tools and an improved level of transparency Hoowla brings.

Hoowla, an online conveyancing case management provider and recognised alternative to the Law Society’s Veyo platform, also provides panel management software which allows estate agents and mortgage brokers to manage their own private panel of solicitors. Hoowla keeps everyone in the loop throughout the conveyancing process through a modern, professional interface. Hoowla offers 24 hour support and works closely with customers, quickly integrating feature requests into the system at no extra cost.

 

 

Conveyancing software provider Hoowla has introduced automatic property search alerts into their case management software to help customers make informed decisions when ordering property searches. Using data provided by the coal authority, the first of Hoowla’s search alerts determines whether the property being purchased falls within an area which could be affected by coal mining. The property is clearly marked on a map along with the boundaries of known coal mining areas and an alert to order a CON29M is prominently displayed if the property falls within the boundary.

Hoowla-conveyancing-coal-search-data

 

Adam Curtis, CEO at Hoowla comments, “Search alerts have been available in the property search industry for some time but have yet to feature in the software conveyancers use every day. This is the first of many search alerts we plan to display in Hoowla to help our users make the right search buying decisions for their clients at the right time.”

Customers can order property searches directly through Hoowla and fulfilled orders are automatically returned by the search provider into the case ready to be downloaded and shared. Customers using one of Hoowla’s integrated conveyancing search partners (while it’s not a requirement) benefit from a seamless and hassle free search ordering experience. Hoowla is partnering with an ever-growing number of search providers, the most recent being Quantus Conveyancing Support Services.

Hoowla’s latest update assists solicitors in complying with their anti-money laundering (AML) obligations. An electronic AML check can be effortlessly performed on any client providing a clear “PASS or REFER” result within seconds.

The timely launch of Hoowla’s integrated AML service arrives amid growing concern of complicity in the property industry, with professionals also failing to fulfil obligations to report suspicious transactions. The recent airing of Channel 4’s Dispatches ‘From Russia with Cash’ helps to fuel the public’s perception that areas of the UK’s property market, particularly London, are considered a haven for money laundering.

Adam Curtis, Hoowla CEO says “At Hoowla we are always looking to help solicitors. Our latest integration around AML is further proof of our intent. We don’t lock our customers into using Hoowla and this makes us motivated to always give a 100% to retain every firm on a case by case basis.”

Breaking news from the Hoowla conveyancing software team


With five new solicitors signing up to Hoowla in the last three weeks it’s been a busy time. We still have managed to add new functionality into the system. Take a look at our new features: –

Allow clients to instruct your firm from a quote and supply case details before you have even opened the file.

 

We are always looking to improve the number of clients that instruct from a quote and the time it takes to setup a case.

With our new instruct button we have achieved both. With a tick of a box in your quote calculator setup area you can turn on the instruct from quote button on all quotes. This means the client can then instruct you from the quote and fill in extra details around the case to pre-populate the documents before you have even opened the file.

We can also customise the text and data collected, along with automatically sending out additional documents on case create, like your client welcome pack.

This feature can be used by full case management users and our quote calculator only customers.
.

Request Missing Data from Anyone in the Case to Auto Complete Documents

 

Hoowla has always allowed you to quickly request data from anyone involved in the case but over the last few months we have compiled your feedback and now made it even easier to request and fill in data for any document template stored on our system.
