As a valued customer of AXIS Searching & Settlements (AXIS), I am delighted to advise that GlobalX Information Pty Ltd (GlobalX) acquired AXIS on 2 September, 2013.
GlobalX is a leading global provider of online business, property and consumer information solutions and the acquisition of AXIS will complement and further extend GlobalX's property settlement, conveyancing and legal support solutions in Australia.
GlobalX through its LegalinX service has been a leading provider of property settlements, conveyancing and legal support services for over 35 years, and has developed a sound reputation for reliability and customer service when it comes to delivering on time settlement, stamping, registration services, litigation support services along with online business, property and consumer information.
As a truly national provider of settlement, conveyancing and legal support services, the acquisition of AXIS lifts our volume of annual property settlements to over 50,000.
"This is a positive move for AXIS and for the Victorian settlement environment. On behalf of the AXIS team, we are very excited to be joining the GlobalX team as it continues to develop and invest in its conveyancing services and settlement offering. It is the opportunities ahead for you, our customers, that excites me the most." says Kate Fitzpatrick, Director AXIS Searching & Settlements.
"A key driver for the acquisition is underpinned with the knowledge that in 2014 the model for conveyancing will change forever in Australia. As the first organisation to sign a Sponsor's Head of Agreement with NECDL, GlobalX are thrilled to be leading the way. As a sponsor of NECDL we carry the responsibility to introduce the practitioner market to electronic conveyancing. We firmly believe that the future needs of customers will be best served by organisations that offer a hybrid of manual and electronic settlement services. Combine this offering with our leading practice management software and integrated online business, property and consumer information and GlobalX is ensuring that our customers are ready for change." says Mr Peter Maloney, Chief Operating Officer GlobalX Information.
"One of the key drivers for GlobalX to acquire Axis Searching & Settlements was our desire to leverage the skills, know-how and expertise of Kate, Bryan and the entire AXIS Searching & Settlements team, and we are delighted to have achieved this. It is a great move for GlobalX, as we continue to prepare for e-Conveyancing in Australia," says Mr Maloney
What does the acquisition by GlobalX mean for AXIS Searching & Settlement customer?
I can assure you it is all positive. You will continue to be supported in the normal fashion. Over the coming weeks, we will work with GlobalX to complete a successful integration of AXIS services into the GlobalX national conveyancing and legal support solutions platform - LegalinX.
