How can ethos grow your business?

Ethos is cutting-edge cloud-based software that supports all Microsoft, Apple and Google browsers in the marketplace, allowing you to login using any internet enabled device from anywhere in the World.


It can be managed by all enforcement companies, local government agencies with in-house enforcement departments, property developers, parking operators, debt collection agencies, evictions, security companies and solicitors. Data can be either electronically imported or manually generated at the beginning the Compliance Stage. (If CCJ, to qualify for transfer up to the High Court scheme for enforcement by a High Court Enforcement Officer (HCEO), it must be £600 or above, including fees & costs, and less than 6 years old).


Ethos works to reduce all staff processing costs, and eliminate errors during the enforcement process. This includes the generating of documents, emails, SMS texting, allocating work to your enforcement agents, calculation and application of fees, visit reports, geofencing of GPS co-ordinates, calculation and application of payment arrangements and financials including generating statements and if necessary, communicating electronically with your clients.


We are currently working on a Google Maps integration tool.

A word from the cEO

In creating Ethos we have provided our clients with all the latest tools they need to achieve a leading position in the enforcement industry.


Many of our clients have told us that they wished they had used Ethos sooner. We are very reasonably priced to attract small businesses as well as the larger and medium sized companies.


Lately we have been designing all types of data exchange programs to allow you to offer the services of importing new cases, import payments and to export financial data and completed cases back to your clients.


With thousands of enforcement companies, local authorities, solicitors and collection agencies, in addition to many in-house enforcement departments across the United Kingdom and with High Court Enforcement debt now at an all time high, now is the time to streamline your business and get the right software platform installed.


Let our Ethos be your Ethos.
