Leading UK legal systems innovator Zylpha (www.zylpha.com) has launched the first PayPal utility for legal practices. The new integration enables law firms to take clients’ payments easily including: initial ‘on account’ funds, disbursements, diarised invoice sums and final settlements. Zylpha believes that the new solution, which operates within LexisNexis Visualfiles, provides a fast, easy and customer friendly method of securing client funds. In addition, where required, The PayPal integration can be used in conjunction with leading eSignature product Adobe Sign.
As invoice details can be sent to clients electronically, the new PayPal system eliminates the risk of human typing input errors or the need to decipher illegible payment card details. Transactional data can then be parsed back into Visualfiles, where additional workflows can be built, once the monies are received. These might include: instigating searches or requesting office copies of case paperwork.
As Chris Wright Project Lead at Zylpha notes, “This is the first system of its kind and will help practices collect the monies they are due securely, whilst also boosting perceived customer service amongst clients. Those practices that sign-up will instantly differentiate themselves from other firms some of whom are still limited by costly and time-consuming paper-based systems. Our initial research suggests that the demand for this utility will be extremely high and we expect that PayPal availability is one option that will soon be seen as a best practice.”
