Fully integrated into Redbrick Practice Management

Redbrick Searches are provided by PoweredbyPie . Access the search ordering portal with one click, directly from the matter in RPM. You will be automatically logged in and the client, matter and property details will be automatically populated for you. This saves you time by removing duplication and also removes the risk of errors in re-keying the data. Once searches have been ordered, results are returned directly into the appropriate matter in RPM.

The system will keep you updated on actual return times so you always know where you are. If you are in a rush to complete we can expedite searches for you, just give us a call and we’ll be happy to help.

Competitively priced

We always provide competitively priced searches, which, when bundled together as a pack can often attract a discount. We will help you to review your search requirements to help you remain compliant whilst you benefit from the time savings and integration with RPM.

Save ‘favourites’ for easy ordering

We will set up as many ‘search packs’ as you like (bundles of searches you order regularly). These can be added to your ‘favourites’ along with any other ad-hoc searches you regularly order. Your ‘favourite’ searches will always be at the top of your screen and ready to order with just one click.

Additional searches automatically recommended

The system will automatically suggest additional searches for you, based on the postcode. For example, a flood, mining or radon search. This is particularly useful if you are acting in an area that is not local or known to you.
