Zylpha (www.zylpha.com), the UK's leading innovator of legal document production and distribution has announced the latest version of its Rapid RTA (Road Traffic Accident) integration system for law firms. The software which automates the transfer of case management information for claims made on the MOJ's (Ministry of Justice's) RTA portal significantly speeds up the process, whilst reducing costs and eliminating manual input errors.
The new version, which incorporates a host of enhancements, fully recognises the raft of changes, to the portal, that the MOJ introduced in September 2012. Consequently, the introduction of the latest version of Zylpha's Rapid RTA software delivers the latest functionality in time for the MOJ's 'go live' date. The system is also ready for the new rules applying from 2013, which will significantly raise the maximum possible value of RTA claims to nearly £25,000.
With the MOJ set to spread the use of the portal to other areas such as Employers' Liability and Public Liability cases, Zylpha believes that the automation of Case Management information is set to become a best practice standard. Zylpha's latest RTA system has therefore been developed to encompass these new areas as they arise and therein to drive 'best practice' on behalf of Zylpha's clients.
Tim Long CEO of Zylpha, himself a qualified lawyer, believes that both the present and future changes by the MOJ are fuelling the demand for automation and efficiency. In his view, "We felt it was important to react promptly to the recent and forthcoming portal changes by the MOJ and to show that we will be ready from the relevant go live dates. In the last month, we have seen a dramatic increase in interest in the use of our Rapid RTA product from Legal Firms and also the Case Management providers, who have come under pressure from their clients to provide the facility.
"It does seem that the prospect of higher claims is driving interest in automation greatly. In part, this reflects demand from those handling larger cases where the costs of running the case are higher. This has ensured that achieving the highest possible levels of efficiency through automation is now a serious priority.
"In addition, the controversial news that the MOJ is intending to extend the use of this portal to handle Employers' Liability and Public Liability cases, will affect a large number of PI focused firms. Ultimately, this development will drive the need for the automation of case information. Indeed, we believe that we are very close to seeing case management automation, such as that provided by Zylpha, becoming a best practice requirement."
Zylpha's RTA Software is seamlessly integrated with leading the Case Management solutions SolCase and Visualfiles from Lexis Nexis.
