LSL Property Services plc

Online conveyancing system delivers sub 12 month return on investment

Opportunity - Retail

In order to deliver a unique and innovative service to their customers and clients, LSL Property Services plc, (Your Move, Reed Rains), needed a web-based conveyancing system. The key objectives were: to provide customers and users with online access to live property cases; to replace an off-the-shelf system with a tailored solution; and to build system integration points to key external service providers. To achieve these goals, we developed a bespoke software system, built around the business requirements, and representing core organisational brand values.

"Our long term working relationship is key; the more Pace IT Systems understands our businesses, the better placed LSL are to continually enhance the customer experience by delivering innovative and distinctive software solutions."
