Innovation drove GlobalX’s establishment, and continues to drive its success today. Founded more than 20 years ago in 1994, GlobalX was a pioneer as the first company to provide online access to Australian land titles to property and legal professionals.
More than two decades on, GlobalX is now one of Australia’s most successful and fast-moving tech start-ups. The organisation specialises in the provision of innovative software, online regulatory information and legal support services to service Australia’s legal, conveyancing, accounting and financial sectors.
Led by CEO Peter Maloney and with more than 220 staff across a network of seven offices, it has become one of the industry’s most respected digital disrupters. Each day, tens of thousands of professionals around Australia trust GlobalX’s suite of software and online solutions to manage their time more effectively and access regulatory, legislative and compliance information, support services and technology tools – all via one integrated solution.
Matter Centre was developed in response to a clear need in the industry. Through extensive research, GlobalX discovered that lawyers and conveyancers were constantly frustrated with the lack of effective end-to-end conveyancing solutions available.
In 2016, GlobalX invested more than $4 million to develop Matter Centre as Australia’s most feature-rich, agile property law software for conveyancing matters. To this day, Matter Centre remains completely free to use with no lock-in financial contracts.
Matter Centre combines file management, customisable workflows, Verification of Identity (VOI) technology, integrated property information, electronic forms, contracts and precedents, electronic conveyancing and digital signing technology. All features are integrated to deliver a seamless, end-to-end conveyancing workflow.
Investing approximately $10 million per year in new product development, GlobalX remains at the forefront of new technology to support the legal and conveyancing industry’s digital transformation. In November 2018, Matter Centre Projects was released, extending the functionality of its $0 conveyancing workflow software.
Matter Centre Projects is a first for the legal industry – software designed to help law firms manage and process multi-lot developments from initial contract stage through to settlement. Extending on the functionality of GlobalX’s award-winning software Matter Centre, the Matter Centre Projects module is an advanced conveyancing workflow used to manage and process multi-lot developments and largescale property projects.
Matter Centre Projects is a complete end-to-end property management tool for multi-lot matters, including off-the-plan and vacant land, post-subdivision sales.
Property law and real estate teams now have a smart tool for contract creation, property information searching and form generation, as well as seamless property contract distribution and electronic signing for multiple parties. The software includes automated electronic settlement and financial billing.
The entirely $0 cloud-based conveyancing solution gives lawyers access to integrated national land and title information and electronic contracts of sale, and offers smart batch processing and bulk creation functionality. Created to be an easy-to-use project management tool, the Matter Centre Projects module helps facilitate the sale and purchase of multi-lot property developments.
Matter Centre Projects was designed in consultation with Australia’s leading law firms and technology experts. This innovative system delivers significant value to firms and associates, as well as providing unrivalled value and insights for the property developer throughout the contract and property settlement lifecycle.
Matter Centre and the Matter Centre Projects Portal Extension deliver terrific value for all users. GlobalX conveyancing software offers major time and efficiency gains without the expensive software fees or lock-in contracts seen elsewhere in the market.
The Australian Business Awards are an annual comprehensive awards program which recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement via a set of established business and product award categories.
The Australian Business Awards are the national chapter of an integrated, hierarchical leadership initiative conducted on a national and international level. Eligible organisations are invited to participate in the international chapter of the program at The World Business Awards whereby participants are provided with the unique opportunity to benchmark themselves against the top performers globally.
The process culminates in the selection of organisations which implement world-class business initiatives, projects, products and services. The award recipients are recognised as the elite of their industry earning a place amongst a distinguished group by having their achievements acknowledged and celebrated.
Organisational eligibility includes private companies, publicly listed companies, multinational subsidiaries, not-for-profit organisations, non-government organisations, educational institutions, franchise systems, partnerships, government departments, government agencies, local government and statutory bodies operating in Australia.
Organisations are required to complete a submission for a specific business initiative, product or service.
Business initiatives can include but are not limited to projects, programs, processes, systems, technologies, developments, ventures and undertakings.
Products can include but are not limited to services, devices, equipment, programs, processes, activities, applications, information, knowledge, software, cloud-based services, platforms, systems and manufactured goods. Products must be commercially available on the Australian market and comply with all applicable Australian standards and regulatory requirements. Product eligibility includes domestic and international products available to the Australian marketplace.
The World Business Awards Framework (WBA Framework) is utilised as a structured model of assessment that enables the participating organisations to be benchmarked against world class performance standards.
The Framework consists of specialised assessment modules pertaining to the evaluation criteria for each of the award categories. The criteria and sub-criteria provide a robust set of requirements that are used as the methodology for benchmarking and learning among the participating organisations.
Organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, product innovation, technological achievement and employee engagement are recognised via a set of established business and product award categories.
The program provides a notable opportunity for high-performing organisations which implement world-class business initiatives and develop innovative products and services to be acknowledged and celebrated for their achievements both nationally and internationally.
Conducted annually, the program engages with organisations worldwide to benchmark the full spectrum of their products, services and initiatives and to review their business performance through a global recognition and knowledge building initiative that is underpinned by the program’s established framework.
The program provides the ultimate platform for building knowledge, increasing brand awareness, equity, loyalty and retention through increased exposure, recognition and prestige.
