The FilePro and GlobalX teams are thrilled to announce the impending launch of FilePro + GlobalX Search integration! Our integration functionality has been many months in the making and has been designed to deliver a seamless searching experience for your firm.

With this new integration now available in FilePro’s V20.2 release, this article will cover how the FilePro + GlobalX Search integration can enhance your firm’s productivity. 

Who is GlobalX?

GlobalX is a leading legal technology and information provider with operations across Australia and the United Kingdom. Established in 1994 as the first organisation to deliver NSW land title searches online, we have since evolved to specialise in innovative technology solutions and support services for law firms, conveyancers, financial institutions, property planning professionals and government bodies across the nation. GlobalX offers unique, integrated services and software solutions, including online property and business regulatory information.

What will you have access to when using the integration?

Online property, company and business and due-diligence information

With GlobalX Search integration, you’ll have access to Australia’s most comprehensive range of online property, company and business information in just a few clicks. We also offer Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) searches and the ability to create, amend and discharge registrations. Do you have a large-scale PPSR project you need assistance with? Our team can look after bulk registrations on your behalf.

Digital productivity solutions

Our digital signing tool SignMe will come in handy for creating, signing and exchanging contracts and documents, especially during this time of social distancing. We also offer integrated access ARNECC-certified Verification of Identity (VOI) solution IDSecure which enables you to capture clients VOIs in under 60 seconds.

Complimentary training and support

If you’re not yet a GlobalX Search user, we can assist with setting up your account and navigating the system. The GlobalX Helpdesk is available from 7 am – 7 pm AEST Monday – Friday with an experienced team on-hand to assist with any questions and support you may need. 

Why should you choose to integrate?

Whether you’re a sole practitioner or a firm of 100+, integration between your practice management system and a search provider is a must-have if you want to increase productivity and save valuable time and resources.

Integration with a search provider typically means you can order information directly from your matter and have it returned to your matter almost instantly. This process is far more streamlined than the experience of using a search provider as a standalone platform. If you’re currently physically re-entering search data and manually downloading results and saving them to your matter, you’re potentially adding hours of work to your week and increasing the risk of errors.

How will you benefit from the FilePro + GlobalX Search integration?

The FilePro team has worked hard to ensure the integration will make you and your firm more productive. Some key productivity-enhancing features of the integration include:

  • Save time: You’ll save hours per week thanks to pre-population of search fields from your matter, as well as the instant return of results direct to your matter – removing the need to download and file each document manually.
  • Save costs: Billing is automated along with the return of search results, meaning you’ll never miss another disbursement. This handy feature can potentially save firms thousands of dollars in lost disbursements.
  • Reduce the risk of error: Removing the need to re-key data not only saves time, but it reduces the risk of any typos that could result in an incorrect return of searches.
