New Clients To Manage Complex Business Transactions

Based in LA, and launched in 2011 by Eric M. Jackson and Christopher Grey, CapLinked empowers its clients to manage complex business transactions such as mergers & acquisitions, financings, asset sales, and investor reporting. It’s easy-to-use collaborative workspaces enable users to speed up the complicated and tedious process of managing a large deal.

The firm helps transaction parties to communicate and securely exchange files, while providing customers with deal analytics and a complete audit trail as it is built with workflow optimization in mind.

Easy To Set Up

CapLinked’s alternative to Virtual Data Room (VDR) services for coordinating on complex business deals are time saving as the VDR industry has long been dominated by three large players resulting to lack of competition and lack of innovation. VDR customers also suffer poor workflow, difficult set-up, and exorbitant pricing plus hidden per-page charges but, CapLinked is easy to set up, workflow-friendly, and has transparent pricing.
