CapLinked Data Room review

A CapLinked virtual data room is a solution for sharing confidential information and productive collaboration. The software includes such integrated products as File Protection, Workspace, Document, Integration Managers, and Deal Tracker, making workflows smoother.

A CapLinked data room is an easy-to-use yet feature-rich platform founded in 2010 by PayPal CMO Eric M. Jackson and Private Equity Executive Christopher Grey. Later the solution was named a Top Tech Innovation by Inc. magazine. Wall Street magazine also rated CapLinked virtual data room as the best solution for closing deals, noting the platform’s quality. The company was founded in Los Angeles. However, CapLinked VDR software is currently headquartered in Manhattan Beach, California, with offices in Dubai, UAE, Mumbai, India, and Sandton, South Africa.

A CapLinked virtual data room offers state-of-the-art data storage and management solutions. For example, customers can control content security and data access internally or externally. 

As for the collaborative options, the provider allows simultaneous viewing, editing, and document updating. Additionally, users can IM in private or group chats, and the program automatically notifies all relevant persons about each action. 

Another helpful service is activity tracking. With this option, administrators can monitor users’ online actions and generate reports, which allows them to stay updated on daily tasks or during deals.

A CapLinked data room offers a two-week free trial. It includes 500MB DRM and watermarked storage, two admins, and one virtual workspace. If you decide to purchase a subscription, the data remains intact. Potential subscribers can also request a demo to better understand the software.

Medium and large-sized enterprises from various industries are the heaviest users of this software solution. Clients use CapLinked primarily for the secure exchange of confidential information, audits, financing, M&A, project management, sale and purchase of assets, and legal compliance. 

These operations are similar in terms of participants’ needs for ease of use and confidence in protecting sensitive data. Consequently, a CapLinked data room offers all these facilities and, therefore, is considered a good value for the money.
