“It didn’t take long for Repskan to get up to speed with our markets. They really understood our requirements. We know how powerful the system is, but all we really wanted was to get a timely snapshot of the situation for each of our portfolio companies, and be able to drill-down if we saw something of interest. However, we liked it so much that we shared access with our portfolio companies and some of them bought the whole product suite for full usability.” - Jonathan Brod, Managing Partner
