Fee stamping service adds speed to case progression

A Court Services-approved fee franking machine can eliminate travel and waiting time at court offices for legal staff.

The technology stamps legal documents in-house, eliminating the need to travel to court offices, and offers an end-to-end digital workflow, incorporating official verification.

This automation of court stamps on legal documents will take up less staff time and speed up court case progression, Clare Conlin of Quadient explains.

Courts Service-approved

Quadient has developed the Courts Service-approved fee franking machine, which builds payment into the digital process, and also eliminates the need for law firms to hold cash.

The security risk of physically moving sensitive paperwork is also reduced, along with attendant potential data-protection breach concerns.

The firm says that time-consuming trips to physically obtain court stamps can be avoided, and court documents dealt with, without leaving the office.

The machine’s credit can also be topped up online to required levels at any time and documents stamped around the clock.

Data records also keep track of court fee spends by department, adding to cost management insight.

“We are proud to hold the licence for the CS-200 court fee franking machine and enjoy a strong relationship with the Courts Service,” said Conlin.
