Registers of Scotland wins tech award for digital transformation

Posted: 27th September 2021

Registers of Scotland (RoS), the public body responsible for registering land and property in Scotland, has won the Scottish Legal Technology Award for its digital response in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The award recognises the organisation’s swift creation of an innovative digital submissions service which has revolutionised the way in which the legal profession interacts with land registration in Scotland.

The service means it’s now faster, cheaper, more environmentally friendly, and even more secure to submit a registration application than ever before.

It has also helped ensure that Scotland’s property market has been able to continue to function despite the pandemic.

The winning nomination was announced at a virtual ceremony last night.

Securing this award means recognition, on a national level, that RoS is an organisation which truly pushes the boundaries in terms of digital transformation and innovation.

Kenny Crawford, Director of Business Development at RoS, said:

“It is a fantastic achievement to have received this recognition and testament to the hard work of everyone across the business during this hugely challenging period.

I am particularly proud to be taking this award home on behalf of a public sector organisation. This is proof that with the right in house talent, skills and project management we can deliver a high-quality IT project that can compete on a national scale for the benefit of the people of Scotland”.
