With two offices in Cleveland and Dallas, Align needed to ensure its growing team had on-demand access and a collaborative environment to support a multi-faceted sourcing strategy. Most importantly, the team’s prior experience helped define a clear, standardized processes and approach to investing in the lower middle market. “We knew how we wanted our firm to operate and DealCloud was tremendous in configuring their technology to coincide with that vision. The knowledge of their implementation team and flexibility of the platform allowed us to quickly implement a proprietary system,” said Chris Jones, Align’s Managing Partner. Align followed DealCloud’s proprietary implementation methodology and took advantage of the Charlotte, NC based support and implementation teams extensive experience building private equity platforms. DealCloud CEO Rick Kushel commented, “The founders from Align Capital Partners came over from Riverside with impressive resumes. They knew what kind of tool their company needed to continue performing at the highest level. As a company and platform created specifically to meet the needs of dealmakers, DealCloud was recognized early on as the ideal vendor for a long term partnership. We are excited to welcome another high-profile team and support Align for years to come.”
