DPS Software implements GBG's Matchcode software to help law firms improve efficiency & data quality

Published: Monday January 20, 2014

DPS Software, one of the longest standing legal case management software providers, has implemented GBGroup's flagship Matchcode Identity Registration software for address validation and auto-population across its product range.

The new functionality dramatically reduces the time clients have to spend on data-entry as addresses are entered into the system automatically once the correct option is selected, saving time in the processing of a case or matter and ensuring only accurate contact information is entered into the database.

The unprecedented pressure on the legal sector over the last few years has led to widespread cost-cutting measures. Successful law firms have employed technology to set and monitor targets and improve the efficiency of the fee earners. Time costs money and the automation of simple tasks saves lawyers and secretaries hours of valuable fee earning work every week.

The Matchcode address validation and look-up module can complement all of DPS's sector-specific applications: Family, Conveyancing, Crime, Personal Injury and Probate.

Osman Ismail, the Managing Director of DPS Software said: ''We are delighted to join forces with GBGroup, the leader in Identity Intelligence technologies, and integrate its market-leading Matchcode product into our case management software. Driven by the desire to continuously improve our product, we are always looking for complementary applications that can enable our clients to work smarter not harder. Matchcode address validation and look-up product enables fee earners to perform the administration side of their work more efficiently than ever.''

David Green, Business Unit Director of GBGroup's ID Registration business explains: "Our partnership with DPS Software is a great example of how innovative Identity Registration technology can be used to resolve and improve everyday operational and data processing problems. This is another success story for our partner programme which is taking GBGroup's technology into a wide variety of sectors."
