Learn how Registers of Scotland and the Scottish Housing Regulator delivered digital transformation by empowering their businesses and allowing ingenuity to flourish.
Picking up a theme from an earlier blog article, What is Digital Transformation?, this recent observation from Tom Meade, Digital Director at Registers of Scotland, really resonated with us:
“We don’t look at it as digital transformation; the IT doing something to the business. We view it as business transformation; the business deciding what it wants to do with its IT capability.”

Almost 3 years ago, Registers of Scotland (RoS) approached CompanyNet with a business problem. A significant legislative change to the Land Registration Act had just been announced.

The deadline became known within RoS as the “Designated Day.”
This legislative change had forced RoS to seek out a digital solution to deliver this statutory requirement. And so the Reports Portal service was born.

What problems do customers face?
The report identifies common complaints such as customer support agents not being equipped with the information to hand about the customer’s problem, having to repeat information to several different people, and the frustration of the problem remaining unsolved.
