GhostConvey Roadshow

The property industry is changing constantly and we face new challenges daily. On 1st June 2007 the National Credit Act (NCA) will come into force and substantially change the way the conveyancing process works. Despite increased property transactions and additional legislative impediments the conveyancing industry is still expected to offer superior service, reduced times to registration and accurate reporting.

In order to assist you to meet these challenges we would like to invite you to join us for an update on the National Credit Act and the consequent changes to the bank milestones. We will also introduce you to the new GhostConvey Developments Module as well as the Attorney Gateway for FNB.

Come to hear Korbitec's experts in the field addressing the following crucial issues:

  1. NCA - New bond application process
    Paul Esselaar - Electronic Law Manager, Korbitec
  2. NCA - Milestones
    Mari Van Wyk - General Manager, GhostConvey, Korbitec
  3. GhostConvey Developments module and new features

We would like to introduce you to our HelpDesk Consultants over the next few months, its always nice to put a face to a name you chat to. :) And include the most common query of the month from HelpDesk.

Please meet Toyheba Karrien (Previously Peters)

Toyheba who was recently married was born and raised in Cape Town and is one of three children. She started working for attorneys in March 1995 and in 2000, she studied part-time and completed a course in paralegal studies. In August 2004 a change was in order and she started working at Korbitec.

Her broad conveyancing experience (9 years) is an asset to all on the Help Desk. Hobbies include dancing, singing (in the privacy of her home). Toyheba loves playing pool and reading but hasn't read a good book lately it's just been glossy magazines for a while now.

Why do I get the following error when trying to run the 8.4.7 update and how do I correct it?

Answer :
First run 8.4.5 and thereafter 8.4.7 (only ABSA CPF panel attorney's were required to do the 8.4.5 update originally).
