User stories and quotes from our customers:
“The live connection to Companies House meant that I was able to set up my Kudocs account in minutes – the information was pulled from Companies House and all I needed to do was confirm that it was correct. The few things that needed to be changed were easy to do and Companies House was automatically updated by Kudocs at the end of the process.
Once on the system, it was clear and easy to work out how to add extra information – for example adding historic information about previous shareholdings.”
A utility company uses Kudocs for its SPV company secretarial work. Recently this included changing the board. Using Kudocs, the company was able to record the resignation of multiple directors and run the appointment process themselves (including some future-dated appointments). Normally this was something they had to get their lawyers to do, and it would take at least a week to get started. The company did it in minutes.
“It was extremely easy and quick to do. The resignation process was pain-free and the appointments very straightforward. The new directors were able to provide the required basic information and confirm their consent to act in a matter of seconds and then the board approved the appointments using electronic voting. The company books and Companies House were updated instantaneously.”
A market-leading platform used Kudocs to run a recent share issue. Looking to raise £5m with over 60 existing shareholders, the company used Kudocs to:
The company did this all in house- with no need for third-party advisors. Kudocs customer support assisted them with the occasional query and the process ran very smoothly.
As well as the ease of use and visibility that Kudocs provided, the company was particularly impressed by the level of engagement from shareholders in the pre-emption and voting processes. The ease of voting meant that shareholders responded in greater numbers and faster than via traditional methods.
And to top it all off, Kudocs generated in excess of 40 new deeds of adherence and share certificates automatically – saving huge amounts of administrative time and effort.
A market-leading European multinational in the short term rental space uses Kudocs for managing board meetings:
As well as making this process much easier than via traditional methods, the meeting, agenda and associated documentation all immediately and automatically forms part of the company’s corporate history, stored securely in Kudocs.
A customer incorporated a limited company to add to its group. The live connection to Companies House ensured that they incorporated correctly (e.g. their name was not taken by anyone else). The guidance throughout ensured that they were informed and comfortable with the (very few) decisions they had to make during the process.
A new holding company was needed – quickly – in advance of a restructuring. Incorporating via Kudocs was incredibly straightforward and quick, and as soon as the company was up and running, the board was able immediately to pass the required resolutions to keep to the restructuring timeline.
The document store was used for a recent due diligence exercise. The predesigned folder layout with the ability to create bespoke subfolders was intuitive to use and extremely helpful. Uploading documents was fast (multiple documents at a time and drag & drop), as was moving documents and folders once created.
It was great being able to grant access to multiple third parties so that they could review as required. Controlling access and user rights was straightforward and secure, giving control and peace of mind.
Having incorporated a company using Kudocs, this company wanted to change it articles of association. The whole process took a matter of minutes and the Kudocs settings updated immediately to take into account any relevant changes that the new articles introduced.
