In this episode, Dave Newick, CEO of estate planning software specialist, Arken.legal, is joined by founder and CEO, Nick Cousins from Exizent - a cloud-based platform aiming to connect the data and services used by legal services firms, institutions, and executors to make managing the probate process easier.
Nick begins by explaining his background and giving the reasons as to why he decided to build Exizent. They discuss how Arken.legal and Exizent’s partnership can help create some synergy and therefore solve some of the problems in the industry, also explaining why partnerships of this sort are so important and what value this could bring to practitioners.
Nick explains the process he adopted to build Exizent, including some of the problems that he discovered whilst going through this process. They then explore how financial services organisations are affected by estate administration and the potential to help improve this.
The episode ends by Dave and Nick discussing where they believe the industry is heading over the next 3 to 5 years.
