GhostConvey WOW Feature

You can rearrange your Transfer Proforma/Final Account entries to your liking…

All you need to do is use the "drag-and-drop" concept. Select the account entry you would like to move, and drag it to the spot you want it, and then of course, drop it.

Make sure, though, that your cursor is over the wording of the account entry before you start dragging it with your mouse.

GhostConvey Tips and Tricks

Resending the "Authority to Pay" and "Bond Type" messages

We have had numerous queries regarding the fact that these 2 messages sometimes don't appear in the list of messages to send.
This is because they are removed from the "electronic messages to export" list once the matter has been marked as LODGED.
Should you need to send them again, you need to first remove the "Lodged" tick in the Progress Dates tab.

Something New

Cut out the "middle-man" !!
Korbitec have launched ATTORNEY GATEWAY. For those of you that have not yet heard of this fantastic new "offer", here it goes…
Attorney Gateway is an FNB approved electronic bond instruction system developed by Korbitec which FNB and FNB panel attorneys will use to send bond instructions and exchange messages… the alternative to L@W.
Attorney Gateway has a host of features that are new to the market such as error handling within GhostConvey; proof of delivery of messages between GhostConvey and the bank; free support and advanced reporting which ensures that all parties see the same data.
As Attorney Gateway is seamlessly integrated into GhostConvey a user of GhostConvey would not have to move outside of the program to do anything related to Attorney Gateway… therefore, cutting out the "middle-man".
If you would like more information on this, and are interested in converting to AG, please contact the HelpDesk(0860 266 839), or our offices (011 612-6000).
