Conveyancing firm Barnetts has launched an iPhone application that allows clients to get an instant quote and follow the progress of their case via their phone.
The in-house IT team at Barnetts developed the software, which other firms will be able to licence and use.
The iClick app is available for free on iTunes by searching using the keyword conveyancing.
Potential clients can click ?quote?, enter the price of the property and select whether they are buying or selling. The application then connects to the firm?s live quote system and downloads the latest fee information direct to their phones in seconds.
If a client is happy with the fee and wants to instruct the firm, they enter some basic contact details and will be contacted by Barnetts.
To track their case, clients enter their case reference and a password. Key transaction milestones information will then be displayed, in addition to the text messaging which is sent out at key milestones.
Richard Barnett, senior partner at the firm, said: ‘In the past few years, conveyancers have been challenged to provide the best possible service at the most competitive price. To succeed with this goal, the use of the latest techniques and technologies has to be embraced.’
