Experts were consulted, and the feedback obtained largely concurred with this view. Furthermore, many felt that some directories offered poor value for money - they were overpriced and did little more than provide a list. Nothing was produced by the publishers on a regular basis that offered something of value to either expert or lawyer.
X-Pro was therefore born out of a unique perspective - knowing what lawyers wanted and recognising the flaws in what was on offer from our potential competitiors. The core features had to be:
- Low cost for experts
- Direct, secure access by experts to their own profile - instantaneous updates
- Extensive expert profiles with a sound option
- Lawyer recommendations with email links
Since launch, we are delighted to have forged a partnership with Bond Solon
who will give a discount to our registered experts on their training courses.
We have also recently obtained provisional CPD accreditation from the Law Society
with a view to providing some online learning with our members for solicitors
throughout the UK. Our monthly newsletter is well received by experts and
legal professionals alike, and articles are provided by both. X-Pro is
more than just another register and is a useful interface between legal
professionals and experts everywhere.
