Reduce Investor Support Time
Optimize your team’s time and resources by delivering more efficient investment management services with streamlined support for administrative activity ranging from answering distribution questions to resending K-1s to updating investor contact and bank details — allowing more focus on high-value tasks and interaction.
Raise Capital Faster
The clock starts immediately on a new investment acquisition to expedite, simplify and streamline the capital raise process. To help pull the pieces together and close as quickly as possible, the IMS platform dramatically reduces the time and effort to raise equity, including marketing to investors, distributing deal documents, managing electronic signatures and receiving funds.
Minimize Time to Calculate Distributions
Calculating accurate distributions for your equity investors is necessary, but managing complex waterfalls in fragile Excel spreadsheets is time-consuming and prone to errors and security risks. IMS simplifies and automates your distributions to speed delivery, improve accuracy and ensure you can scale easily as you grow your business.

Commitments & Capital Calls Coordination
IMS makes planning, requesting and collecting commitments for new capital raises easy, consolidating communication tasks and processing commitments to allow sponsors to focus on managing investor relationships. When you’re ready to call capital, IMS helps you notify investors of current capital needs, track incoming funding and quickly calculate outstanding capital.
The IMS platform includes a document management system — effectively a built-in deal room — to streamline the delivery of secure forms, reports and updates to investors and employees. Through the investor dashboard, you can easily share individual K-1s with a single investor or send project-specific data to multiple investors participating.

With the Key Property Insights feature, automated data aggregation and visualization across your asset portfolio give you the opportunity to optimize value, including with multiple third-party property managers. IMS serves up intuitive and interactive dashboards that empower you to pinpoint inefficiencies, identify actionable next steps and maximize performance.
