Professional service level, support, data security, and product heritage:
- Give us a simple 2 column spreadsheet with company numbers and their CH filing codes, and we will upload all your companies from the latest Companies House data for free!
- FirstOrder is fully supported by phone and email within the price of your subscriptions. With your permission, we can look at your account and see the same pages and the same companies, personnel, and shares as you do. This means we can give support as if we were sitting right there with you.
- We encourage user requests for new features. Implementation is to our servers so everyone benefits straight away, and no new versions need to be downloaded or installed by you. New features are therefore implemented as soon as possible.
- Written by Clint Smith, the author of the first-ever secretarial package – the original (1983) Jordans PC Secretary. That’s a lifetime’s experience in providing the right systems solutions for company secretarial management. Although FirstOrder completely replaced our original Solo offline package in 2009, the legacy know-how going forward gives FirstOrder a full 12-year history of development.
