Athennian vs. Fast Company 

A survey conducted from over 900 interviews with law department leaders found that 96% of legal teams face challenges with their entity management systems. Inefficiencies in this volume are not just the fault of internal disorganization but rather a symptom of a larger cause: insufficient infrastructure. 

Entity management is one of the most complicated processes in the legal industry, and its components require constant maintenance and updating. Most entity management platforms on the market today were created before the year 2000, meaning they were designed pre-cloud, pre-wireless, and before the tech standard became at-your-fingertips-accessible. Shouldn’t a process so complex have a product that not only matches its nuance but also enhances it through today’s best-in-class technology? 

If you’re one of the 96% who is currently unhappy with your entity management system, consider switching to a modern, scalable, cloud-based solution that understands the day-to-day needs of a legal professional.

Switching From Fast Company

Athennian adeptly migrates Spreadsheets, PDFs, paper minute books, and all existing data in your current entity management system, including FastCompany.

Traditionally, migrating from FastCompany has been especially challenging due to FastCompany’s lack of export functionality. FastCompany prevents data from being available in transferable formats (for example: .csv or .sql) which causes significant obstacles during migration.

Fortunately, Athennian has developed a proven methodology for successfully transferring your data from FastCompany to its new home in Athennian. 

A combination of paralegal support and our best-in-breed machine-learning technology work to extract data from FastCompany’s exported files, regardless of format. 

Athennian can expertly migrate all data in FastCompany, such as:

  • Entity & compliance details
  • Addresses, agents, registrations
  • By-laws, articles, governance, etc. 
  • Shareholders, share classes, transactions, certificates, etc. 
  • Directors, officers, etc.
