LONDON, U.K., 6 January, 2021 – LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions today announced that the legal department of Rochdale Borough Council is deploying legal workflow and case management solution, Lexis® Visualfiles™, as its electronic file system. With Visualfiles as the single repository for all matter-related documentation, the legal department will benefit from a modern system that will standardise the way the teams work, significantly reduce the use of paper and facilitate efficient remote working.
The legal teams will gain a digital and uniform business environment, facilitating a ‘paper lite’ office. Staff will be able to work efficiently and productively from anywhere and at any time. Pauline Tarrant, Project Manager at Rochdale Borough Council, explains, “These are key operational requirements for the department, moving forward."
The legal department at Rochdale comprises 22 lawyers and administrative staff across two teams, who deal with a broad spectrum of cases – from property sale and purchase, regulatory crime to employment tribunal matters. The department chose Visualfiles for its superior functionality, modern technology, customer support and LexisNexis’ firm commitment to invest in the solution for the foreseeable future.
