What our customers are saying

We had a FIC audit this year, it went very well especially in terms of our Risk Management Program, so everything was in order. Since we use DocFox we are able to provide an audit trail to the bank and then they are 100% happy with that.

Deon van Zyl , Werksmans

I feel that now we are using DocFox we would definitely pass a FIC audit. In my personal opinion, I don’t think a law firm can actually go without DocFox. It covers all of the requirements for the FIC and it’s so easy to use that you don’t need to put a lot of time or effort in!

Zelda Gilpin, Phatshoane Henney Inc

The implementation as well as getting up and running on DocFox was issueless and painless. I planned and prepared myself for a tedious process and it wasn’t, the whole DocFox team has been amazing from the get go.

Ruan van Heerden, Seymore, Du Toit & Basson

Every feature within DocFox makes my life easier. Especially the fact that we don’t have to manually go and search the sanctions lists. The fact that DocFox automates it, is really massive time saving.

Leanne van Biljon, Kruger Attorneys

DocFox is customisable which makes life easier as we are able to use it according to our requirements
