The London Borough of Hackney Council have purchased Stopford’s RAFTS for Registration system to replace the now unsupported RSS system.

Stopford’s RAFTS for Registration system is currently used as a comprehensive index and certificate management system in nearly 60 registration services across the UK.

RAFTS (Records Assets Files Tracking System) will provide members of staff from Hackney register office the ability not only to have complete management of RSS data, but also to input new index and register data.

The system allows managers to implement user levels including: can print; can view; can edit or can administrate. Within RAFTS, allocated staff will be able to print index books, print a register index, run missing entries reports and also create and print certificates. They will also be able to scan and save registers within the system, which can be cropped to selection to isolate a specific entry, assigned against an index and printed on certificate paper. These added functions help to speed up the certificate printing process and reduce the number of fraudulent certificate requests.

Thorough training to register office staff will be provided by Stopford and we look forward to working closely with Hackney Council to ensure a smooth integration. You can view further information regarding our RAFTS for Registration system here.
