THE FOUNDER STORY
Our ambition is to provide the best and easiest compliance solutions!
We, lawcode GmbH, an IT start-up based in the Technology Centre Koblenz, consist of an interdisciplinary team that couldn’t complement each other better. Due to the different disciplines of business informatics, computer science, programming and law, we are able to understand the complex IT-technical, economic and legal requirements and convert them into simple, efficient and manageable digitization processes.
The connection of the disciplines was born in the lecture hall and continued with a first meeting of the founding team in Wiesbaden. Based on this, the Hintbox was developed. Today we are lawcode GmbH and consist of a growing and very strong team, which has a lot of fun with the Hintbox and focuses on growth.
The Hintbox, our simple and secure whistleblower system, to implement the requirement of the EU Whistleblower Directive, was designed & programmed by our fully internal, agile and interdisciplinary software development.
We solve legal requirements and processes through simple, fast and especially also secure digital solutions.
Hintbox enables companies of any size as well as all public authorities – with one click – to set up an EU Whistleblower Directive compliant whistleblowing system.
In addition, our Ombuds solution provides one of the most innovative and scalable platforms for Ombudspersons to offer companies the highest possible level of compliance in terms of whistleblower systems.
Our vision for the coming years is to make lawcode the market leader and essential provider in the field of whistleblowing systems and other regulatory software products, among others with the help of artificial intelligence.
