New Prism application leverages Box Platform to enable newfound levels of data control and information security for private companies
Redwood City, CA & New York – September 1, 2016 – Today, Box (NYSE:BOX), a leading modern content platform, and Ipreo, a global leader in providing market intelligence, data, and technology solutions, announced that Ipreo will leverage Box Platform to power its Prism application, which is a holistic, cloud-based, CFO-Desktop that equips private companies to manage regulatory requirements, securely communicate with shareholders, efficiently execute capital raising and liquidity events, and perform advanced analytics to drive better business decisions.
With Box Platform powering the secure content layer in the application, the Ipreo Prism app enables clients to:
- Stay Compliant: As SEC focus on private companies intensifies, Prism makes compliance seamless via auto-generated regulatory disclosures and corporate governance workflow.
- Meet Shareholder Demands: Prism enables the automated, secure communication of documents and data on a permissioned, one-to-many basis, which eases the burden of reporting and ensures that sensitive information remains confidential.
- Execute Capital Raising & Employee Liquidity Events: Prism takes a shareholder-first approach that empowers a private company to quickly access capital, as well as maintain a repeatable employee liquidity program without sacrificing control of its capital structure.
- Optimize Performance & Manage Cap Tables: Prism combines proprietary benchmarks with cap table and valuation analytics to form a holistic solution that equips companies with competitive insights and decision-making tools unavailable anywhere else on the market.
“As private companies remain private longer and the line between public and private markets continues to blur, data control, secure communication, and one-to-many reporting are must-haves,” said Charlie Young, EVP of Private Company Solutions at Ipreo. “As a leading enterprise content management platform, Box is synonymous with security and seamless workflow. That brand, plus the fact that thousands of the world’s leading companies rely on Box for secure communication and collaboration, make Box the perfect partner for Ipreo. We are excited to deliver a disruptive solution, and know that the partnership with Box will always keep Prism at the forefront of innovation.”
