Web Services Method
CPF supports claim filing using web services – a data exchange method which allows a law firm’s computer system to directly interact with the Trust database via the internet.
To use web services, a law firm must program a secure system interface between the law firm’s in-house computer system and CPF’s computer system according to pre-defined system interfaces known as “methods.”
Law firms can use web services to: file claims, update claims, upload documents, respond to deficiencies, and retrieve claims data.
To assist law firms in programming their systems for such interactions, the CPF provides detailed specifications and sample code for each method. Specifications and sample code can be found online at https://efile.cpf-inc.com/help/api/getting-started.html.
