Wipro helped Wessex Water automate its search orders and improve team productivity with a fully integrated, scalable platform
Wessex Searches, a unit of Wessex Water, provides drainage and water enquiry in the Wessex Water region. It also provides conveyancing searches related to coal, environment, flood, planning and local authority searches both for residential and commercial properties.
Official drainage and water search is an essential part of the conveyancing process. It provides information on water and sewerage infrastructure for prospective property buyers. The enquiry protects UK property buyers from unnecessary risks, with a clear trail of responsibility going back to the water companies. The UK water utilities, which are thus making investments in technology and training for improved property search systems, data quality and service levels to deliver effective services to property buyers.
