Denovo’s Legal Software Innovations in 2023 – Pioneering positive change in the Scottish Legal Market

Denovo continues to shine as a leading innovator, consistently striving to simplify and enhance the practice of law.

In 2023, Denovo has once again raised the bar by introducing a range of cutting-edge features and integrations that will reshape the landscape of the Scottish legal software market. Let’s delve into the exciting developments Denovo has unveiled, including their property search integrations, transformative executry software, and the AML Matter Risk Assessment feature, designed to mirror the Law Society of Scotland’s AML Risk Assessment document.

Property Search Integrations

One of the standout features of Denovo’s legal software in 2023 is its integration with prominent property search providers, namely Property Searches Scotland and Millar & Bryce. These integrations offer legal professionals an unparalleled advantage by streamlining property-related tasks and ensuring efficiency throughout the process.

Property Searches Scotland, a trusted name in the industry, brings its extensive database of property information to Denovo’s CaseLoad platform. This full integration is the only one of its kind in Scotland. It empowers legal practitioners to access critical property data effortlessly, from title deeds to land ownership details, saving precious during transactions and property-related cases. Denovo created a new way of ordering your full suite of reports with Property Searches Scotland without ever leaving your case management system.

Likewise, the collaboration with Millar & Bryce enriches Denovo’s software with comprehensive property search capabilities. Users can now seamlessly access land and property information, making due diligence and title searches quicker and more reliable. All ordering, updates and report downloads sync automatically with CaseLoad, including the M&B invoice. You can order Title Checks, Legal Reports, Property Enquiry Certificates, Registered Bundles, Unregistered Bundles and Coal Reports without ever leaving your legal case management system.

In a highly anticipated move, Denovo has announced the upcoming integration with First Scottish, set to launch in early 2024. This addition will further solidify Denovo’s position as the go-to legal software provider in Scotland, offering a fully comprehensive suite of property search solutions.

CaseLoad Executry: Revolutionising the Executry Process

Denovo’s Executry Case Management Software is a game-changing addition to their legal software, designed to streamline and simplify the often complex and time-consuming executry process. This innovative software redefines how legal professionals handle their clients’ estates, automating various tasks and ensuring efficiency at every step.

One of the standout features of CaseLoad Executry is its ability to automate HMRC forms in seconds. This time-saving feature ensures that legal practitioners can complete complex forms accurately and efficiently, significantly reducing the margin for error.

The software also enables users to track and record the assets and liabilities of an estate, providing a comprehensive view of the estate’s financial situation. CaseLoad Executry seamlessly integrates with Legal Accounts, facilitating accurate and real-time updates to financial records.

Another key feature is the automated generation of all executry accounts. By leveraging client data, Denovo’s software can create detailed and accurate executry accounts, complete with precise calculations. This not only enhances the speed of document preparation but also minimises the potential for costly errors.

Matter Risk Assessment: AML Compliance at Its Best

Denovo’s commitment to providing an all-encompassing legal software solution is further exemplified by the introduction of the Matter Risk Assessment feature. This tool simplifies and strengthens Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance efforts, ensuring that law firms meet the highest standards set by The Law Society of Scotland.

The Matter Risk Assessment feature for natural and non-natural persons offers a comprehensive risk assessment of all matters, enabling law firms to identify and address potential AML issues at an early stage. This proactive approach to compliance not only protects law firms from potential regulatory issues but also contributes to the broader fight against financial crime.

Denovo’s commitment to AML compliance, in partnership with Amiqus – Scotland’s most trusted compliance and onboarding platform, is evident in its continuous monitoring and updating of the system to align with regulatory changes. By staying ahead of evolving AML requirements, Denovo ensures that its users are always equipped to meet the latest standards in the legal industry.
