A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate to spend a day on the road visiting PEXA members, with @HeatherC. Throughout the day, we visited four firms all based in the south-eastern region of Melbourne.
Each of the firms were in different stages of their journey to incorporate e-Conveyancing into their businesses. Three of the firms, Cole & Co, Just Conveyancing and Ashmor Legal, are in the initial stages of learning to use the platform. The fourth firm we visited, Boothby & Boothby Solicitors, have been successfully transacting for quite a while, we had the great pleasure of delivering their PEXA Certified graduation trophy in celebration of their achievements!

I was fascinated to discover that Cole & Co were operating in the same building that they have been based in since the 1940’s, which includes a purpose-built strong room! It was great fun to see the original strong room & take a few photos!

As we move towards a truly digital conveyancing future, it’s amazing to hear of the range of innovative solutions that firms’ are building into their businesses. @AshmorLegal shared with us their plans for integrating all of their various client management and conveyancing process systems to create the best possible client experience, as well as maximising their business potential.
Ashmor Legal shared with us that they are excited to bring together a seamless electronic solution, that will enable their business to increase their workload capacity.
At the same time as joining PEXA, Ashmor Legal are taking the opportunity to review all of their business processes & identify opportunities to build in new electronic solutions to maximise efficiency, extend collaboration and ultimately take their business to the next level. This included signing up for Duties Online, registering with PEXA and activating integration between PEXA, InfoTrack and Leap Conveyancer.
It was fantastic and so exciting to hear about some of the plans that the firm are working through at the moment – I can’t wait to hear what Ashmor Legal do next!
Each of the firms that we met with were enthusiastic to learn PEXA and take full advantage of the benefits that e-Conveyancing can offer, I look forward to following their journeys to 100% digital & hearing all about their successes!
