Los Angeles, CA, November 12, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- CapLinked (https://caplinked.com), the cloud-based platform that makes business transactions simple and secure, announced three new high profile financial service clients today: alternative investment firm Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, small business lending platform OnDeck, and venture capital firm Founders Fund. The addition of these financial services clients continues a year of rapid growth for the venture-backed technology company, whose software-as-a-service product accelerates the execution of sophisticated business transactions.
CapLinked gives companies a powerful and customizable solution for managing complex, sensitive interactions such as asset sales, financings, and mergers. CapLinked - whose founding team and investors include early employees from PayPal - is a modern and customizable alternative to virtual data rooms (VDRs), email, flash drives, and other outdated technology that is still being used by businesses to manage deals.
The addition of these high profile financial service sector clients continues CapLinked’s trajectory of rapid growth. The company launched its beta product in 2011, and since exiting beta at the start of 2013 has grown at a rapid pace. Its impressive roster of previously disclosed clients includes Thomson Reuters, Sun Capital, NextView Ventures, Edwards Lifesciences, Draper and Kramer, and Proprietary Capital.
“We are very happy to now use CapLinked for our LP (limited partner) communications,” said Ellen LaBonte, managing director of marketing for Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors. "We appreciate the ease, security and customizable options that CapLinked provides and are glad to partner with a company that makes communicating with out investors simple and secure." Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors is a leading independent alternative investment management firm with approximately $24.5 billion in assets under management that employs 230 professionals in eight offices across the United States.
CapLinked enables users to communicate and exchange data in a secure and confidential environment, complete with flexible permission controls and powerful activity reports. Unlike older virtual data room (VDR) providers such as Intralinks or Merrill Datasite, CapLinked doesn’t use Flash or Java, which often cause browser compatibility issues. It also works perfectly on iPad browsers, making it easy to access deals while on the go.
“CapLinked’s ease of use and compatibility with all types of browsers and devices make it the perfect solution for managing deals and communicating with investors,” said Eric M. Jackson, CapLinked’s CEO and co-founder. “Financial services firms in particular require security, speed, and reliable access since they’re dealing with sensitive information. CapLinked provides unmatched solutions in these critical areas.”
Jackson added that he was thrilled to welcome Kayne Anderson, OnDeck, and Founders Fund to the growth family of CapLinked clients, and indicated that additional client announcements would be forthcoming in the near future.
