Software specialist Bluesoft has a million reasons to celebrate scooping a major regional IT award for its groundbreaking technology.
The company based at Haseley Manor, Warwick, has clinched £1 million worth of orders after launching an online conveyancing system designed for solicitors.
Bluesoft triumphed in the 'most value added private sector project' category at the West Midlands ICT Cluster Awards 2005 in recognition for the new system, which utilises its cutting-edge CRM ( Customer Relationship Management) software.
Solicitors across the UK can go online and look up a property, plot its boundary and view and request property reports from other databases.
The system was launched in December 2004 and by September this year it was serving 150 solicitor practices and receiving 600 orders per day.
In the first nine months, £1 million of orders have been placed and next year orders are set to triple.
Bluesoft managing director Stephen Martin said the award was an excellent achievement by the company - after previously winning so many gongs for other firms.
He said: "We have won awards for clients in the past but it is fantastic to receive this one for ourselves.
"The system cost an initial £200,000 and over the next five years we expect it to have a value of £9.5 million.
"Many companies who come to us say they cannot find anyone else who does what we do, so I think our products and services are quite unique in the industry.
" This software has proved to be a huge success story and is radically transforming the legal side of the property market."
The company also provides accountancy and insurance online quotation systems, paper-less office solutions and manufacturing solutions.
In addition to its legal clients, Bluesoft has provided technology for the likes of Severn Trent, the Belgrade Theatre, Bayton Road Industrial Estate in Exhall and the Beneficial Bank.
Bluesoft is now looking to use the CRM software to crack the accountancy paper-less office market and is also harnessing the use of mobile connectivity to link up PCs with mobile phones.
