Compaq has won a whopping £71 million order to build the largest ever property database for HM Land Registry.
The infrastructure will support the Land Registry's move towards integrating its computerised registers, title plans and supporting deeds, leading to improvements in the cost and time taken to process registrations. The idea is to open up the future possibility of electronic conveyancing.
Mark Underwood, director of managed services at Compaq, described the "partnership approach" that it is to have with the Registry - where the Registry retains control of the business process re-engineering, with Compaq as a strategic technology partner - as "the blueprint for success".
"Compaq is an IT enabler, translating the Land Registry's business vision into a technology reality," he said.
