Dallas, TX (October 28, 2015) – DealCloud, Inc. announced today that Dallas, Texas based Tailwater Capital has selected and implemented DealCloud’s deal management and investor relations solution to manage Tailwater’s deal sourcing, due diligence and investor relations processes.
Tailwater Capital is a sophisticated, growth-oriented private equity firm that invests exclusively in energy related deals in the Midstream and Upstream sectors. Tailwater Capital selected DealCloud because of the flexibility of the platform to customize for unique deal attributes that go along with Midstream and Upstream investments, as well as DealCloud’s ability to manage Tailwater’s complex relationships between deals, investors, funds, and partnerships.
Brian Blakeman, Chief Financial Officer at Tailwater Capital states, “The complexity of our legal structures and fundraising processes for deal-based Partnerships and our committed funds required a flexible software platform. DealCloud’s professional services team was able to dig into our business and configure the platform to model our processes, rather than forcing us to change the way we do business to meet prescribed processes dictated by a rigid software platform. We now have the ability to view our deals, investors, and partnerships in a variety of ways.”
The DealCloud implementation was accomplished over an 8-week timeframe. Rob Cummings, Co-Founder of DealCloud who also took an active role in the design of the Tailwater DealCloud system, said, ” Tailwater’s requirements are unique. We needed to configure a system that covered three critical areas of Tailwater’s business: deal management and execution, investor relations and fundraising, and legal reporting. The DealCloud platform is extremely flexible and we were able to deliver a customized system that met Tailwater’s objectives.”
