Companies House Integration with Proclaim

Contact us today to find out how we can help

What is Companies House Integration?

Companies House API integration refers to the process of incorporating the data and functionality provided by Companies House into a software application, website, or service. Companies House is the registrar of companies for England and Wales, providing official information on registered companies, including company details, filings, directors, and financial data.

Integrating with the Companies House API allows developers to access this data programmatically, enabling them to incorporate company information into their own applications or systems. This integration can be used for various purposes, such as:

  1. Company Verification: Verifying the authenticity and details of a company, including its registration status, directors, and registered office address.
  2. Compliance and Due Diligence: Conducting due diligence checks on companies for compliance purposes, such as Know Your Customer (KYC) procedures or anti-money laundering (AML) regulations.
  3. Financial Analysis: Accessing financial data and reports filed by companies, which can be used for financial analysis, benchmarking, or investment research.
  4. Business Intelligence: Utilising company data for market research, competitive analysis, or business intelligence purposes.

If you are looking to improve your law firm’s processes with the introduction of new integrations into your Proclaim case management system then the Companies House integration is a strong choice. Our team of legal software developers at Legal Practice Support are highly experienced in Proclaim development and can adapt the software to suit your needs. For more information on our services, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us today.

What are the benefits of integrating Companies House into your Proclaim System?

Companies House integration into Proclaim offers several benefits that can streamline workflows, improve decision-making, and reduce risks for your business. Here’s a closer look at the key advantages:

Enhanced Efficiency and Streamlined Workflows:

  • Reduced Manual Data Entry: Manually entering company data from Companies House can be time-consuming and prone to errors. Integration automates the process, freeing up your team’s time for more strategic tasks.
  • Improved Data Accuracy: Automatic data retrieval minimises the risk of typos and ensures your systems have the latest information. This is particularly important for compliance, financial analysis, and decision-making processes.

Informed Decision-Making:

  • Up-to-Date Company Information: Access to real-time data allows you to make well-informed decisions based on the most recent company status, financials, and director information.
  • Better Credit Risk Assessment: Evaluate the creditworthiness of potential clients or partners more effectively by analysing their financial health through Companies House data.

Risk Reduction:

  • Fraud Detection: Identify inconsistencies or suspicious activity in company data that might indicate potential fraud attempts.
  • Mitigating Financial Risks: Gain insights into a company’s financial stability to avoid exposure to businesses with a history of losses or questionable financial practices.

Additional Use Cases:

  • Know Your Customer (KYC): Verify customer identities and assess risks during onboarding processes.
  • CRM Enrichment: Keep customer information in your CRM system up-to-date with the latest details from Companies House. The API provides access to real-time or near-real-time updates on company filings and changes. This ensures that users have the most current information available, which is crucial for making informed decisions.

Our developers can tailor the Companies House integration to suit our client’s specific needs and requirements. This includes selecting which data fields to retrieve, implementing custom filters or search criteria, and integrating the data seamlessly into existing workflows or applications.

Overall, Companies House API integration allows you to leverage the power of official company data to make better business decisions, improve efficiency, and mitigate risks within your organisation.

Satisfied client stories

"Since we first began utilising the services of Legal Practice Support, we have seen a dramatic improvement in the capabilities of our Proclaim system. The system has seen substantial enhancements with regards to automation; tasks that previously could take staff hours, can now be completed within minutes."

Mark Brierley

Director, Beacon Law

"Prior to their (Legal Practice Support) involvement, we had little to no reporting; and what we did have was generally manually accumulated data on spreadsheets. Since Legal Practice Support began enhancing our system, they have enabled us to receive key management information as and when required, which allows us to evaluate key areas of the business, as well as provide overviews of fee earners' case progression and their performance amongst other things."

Mr L Ali

Director, Hunter Price Khan

" We have had the out of the box Proclaim system for many years, and whilst we were content with its performance, it wasn't until we utilised the services of Legal Practice Support to help streamline and automate our workflows that we really saw its potential to save time and money by maximising the efficiency of our workflows."
