Case studies

  • LARGE RETAIL BANK (Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS))

    Document automation - E-signatures - Collaboration

    Challenge: We needed to support a large retail bank with the swift preparation and completion of compliant and enforceable documentation to enable customers to participate in the UK Government’s Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme.

    Solution: We created a complete end-to-end solution using our digital toolkit that automated the production and signing of facility and security documentation - meaning deals were completed in hours not days.

  • MAJOR RETAILER (Corporate restructuring)

    Collaboration - Document automation - Contract analysis

    Challenge: As part of a large corporate restructuring, we were required to review 3,000 leases from multiple jurisdictions and prepare 550 subleases.

    Solution: We used our document automation tool to bulk generate 983 documents within 72 hours - delivering the client a 93% cost saving, if compared to a fully manual drafting process. We also helped accelerate the due diligence with our machine learning platform for contract anlaysis and also utilised online collaboration sites to give full matter dashboarding and real time reporting.

  • GLOBAL BANK (Business Banking Switch Scheme)

    Contract analysis - Document automation - Collaboration

    Challenge: We were retained by a global banking client to facilitate the processing and on-boarding of customers as part of the Business Banking Switch Scheme.

    Solution: Using bespoke code on top of our digital toolkit, we developed a solution to interpret and extract structured data from finance documents that fed directly into our document automation software. Over 3,000 unique loan and security documents were generated for over 600 new customers for our client.
