Further technology innovation at Optima Legal

Optima Legal has announced the successful integration of its recoveries case management system with the Courts Service’s new Secure Data Transfer system (SDT).  

SDT replaces the Criminal Justice Secure Email service used by the County Court Business Centre in Northampton.  A modern and secure system, SDT enables the bulk issue, upload and transfer of data files directly from Optima’s recoveries case management system to HM Courts & Tribunals Service systems.  

The new system is fully integrated within Optima’s case management system, providing the benefit of greater transparency and streamlining the process through the automated update of Optima’s recoveries cases by the SDT system as key milestones are reached.  Additionally, the SDT system provides the ability to view and download court documents, specific to each case, directly through the firm’s case management system.  

Iola Sanger, Operations Manager at Optima Legal comments “The successful integration of the SDT system marks the achievement of another key enhancement to our recoveries services as we continue to invest heavily on service and process improvements.  We were particularly keen to ensure the success of this project due to the obvious benefits it brings to our clients. The fact that we are now issuing 100% of our cases through this channel is testament to the hard work and commitment of our operations and IT teams.”
