Conveyancing Mobile launches case tracking system

Conveyancing Mobile has launched its new mobile tracking system, allowing clients and conveyancers communication through mobile Internet technology.

The Mobile Phone Progress File is updated from Conveyancing Mobile’s standard online file where solicitors can update clients’ case progress via manual input or integration to their case management software.

The software integration is set up with law firms so all their clients cases will be able to be monitored using a mobile phone. A text message will be sent to their clients with their access code, allowing them to view their case conveyancing file, lawyer’s details, property agent’s details and even their mortgage application through their IFA.

There will be no need for separate PC Internet access to track property transactions.

Solicitors can register for the service for free, allowing them to use the manual integration software or pay to integrate their case software with Conveyancing Mobile before offering the service out to clients.

Once set up, solicitors can offer mobile communication for £5 per transaction, which is less than the fees many currently outsource online case tracking software.
