Startup Spotlight: Docupilot’s Innovative Document Automation

Rohit Reddy and Aravind Surendran saw a gap in the business world – so they filled it. They created Docupilot, a document generation program that quickly became an indispensable tool for business professionals. Rohit and Aravind partnered with Bagchi Law as their corporate legal counsel, as they needed a solid team to help with the legal considerations of high product and business growth. Check out their reflections and insights from one of our recent conversations:

Thank you for talking to us about Docupilot. Tell us about the Docupilot software/app and what service it provides.

Docupilot is a “Document Automation Software” that allows users to generate documents on the go. We saw the need to streamline standard legal document procedures, so developed this program to easily create templates of common legal documents. Docupilot provides a no-hassle way to update information like names and dates and is compatible with thousands of apps, making it simple to integrate into any legal administrative system.

Tell us about your background & what led you to work in this field.

Rohit – Undergrad, Civil – Worked at Zoho as a Developer and learned programming out of curiosity about how computers worked.

Aravind – Undergrad, CS – Worked at Zoho as a Developer.

While working together at Zoho, we realized our shared goal of running our own company. We were interested in no-code and automation applications and specifically identified document automation as a fragmented and expensive space, leading us to venture into this field. We are passionate about building a suite of automated SaaS applications that help businesses save time, effort and money.

How long has Docupilot been available, and what were the early stages of running the business like?

Docupilot went live in July 2018. We got our first signup a few days after our product launch, with no ads or paid marketing. Within a month, our customers communicated that they loved the product so much that they wanted to start paying for it. Of course, we didn’t have our payment integration handled yet, so we left the application in the beta stage for another month before launching paid plans. We were thrilled to see the product received so well in the market from the jump.

How has Bagchi Law helped support Docupilot?

Bagchi Law has helped us by providing top-notch corporate legal support and advice – ensuring that we remain in legal compliance. This has been especially important since our corporation is set up in Delaware, but we live in India. Our primary focus is US customers, and a Delaware corporation makes IP and recurring payments easier. 

What has Bagchi Law’s support meant to you and your company?

As young entrepreneurs, Bagchi Law has given us the confidence and security we needed to enter the market with a rapidly successful and growing product. Our success as programmers and developers, coupled with Bagchi Law’s support, allows us to move quickly toward our goal of enhancing Docupilot to meet more significant needs and solve more complex problems in the market.
