Fides customers are in good company
"The struggle of keeping everything up-to-date, in one place while making sure everything is done right by every managing director, shareholder or board member across entities - finally solved."
"As we are on-the-road-to-IPO we need to formalize our governance processes accordingly. With Fides, we can solve several requirements for going and being public at once."
"Fides is the solution that everyone needs but no one has built yet. We were even thinking about developing something like this inhouse. Thanks to Fides we saved our time and money on that and continue to do so every day by using Fides."

Keep all stakeholders in the loop
With customizable access rights you increase your efficiency when working with third parties, e.g. other internal departments, tax advisors, lawyers, auditors, investment banks.

Yes, Fides knows corporate law and creates real automation
Built-in legal logics from corporate law codes
We have turned corporate law regulations into legal logics in our software, so the tool knows, e.g. what is required for a compliant invitation to a shareholders' meeting of a GmbH (limited liability company).
Customization for your legal setup
During onboarding, the relevant duties and deadlines from your company law documents, i.e. articles of association, SHA, rules of procedure or any advisory board bylaws, are extracted and implemented.
Compliant templates for resolutions
For the most common 30+ resolution items, we provide pre-formulated texts that you can flexibly adapt with a few clicks and send out for signature. You can always upload your own resolution template or draft.
Guidance from fully qualified lawyers
During onboarding and thereafter, you will be supported by our Legal Customer Success Managers, who are fully qualified lawyers and have several years of experience in big corporate law firms.
We know you have good intentions. You just need to be able to prove them!
Yes, you do need an audit trail!
Investors are not your friends
Auditors are not your friends
Authorities are not your friends
Fides has your back
As a neutral provider with a revision-proof audit trail architecture, the records kept in Fides serve as proof in internal investigations, D&O cases or to fight allegations against prosecutors.
Fides is your "G" in "ESG"
How to fulfil the “E” and the “S” in ESG is obvious. But the “G” is pretty much undefined. Just by using Fides you implement a range of good governance practices which will satisfy investors and other stakeholders.
