About SecureDocs, Inc.

SecureDocs, Inc.

 

Located in Santa Barbara, California the team at SecureDocs, Inc. is dedicated to building software solutions that are highly secure, easily adopted, and affordable for any type or size of business. Products are characterized by a simple user interface, features that actually get used, and a publicly available pricing plan with no hidden fees. SecureDocs, Inc. products are engineered with close attention to client privacy, so we do not have access to client data and we never market to our client's end users. We currently offer two products:

Our goal in building SecureDocs Virtual Data Room was to the disrupt the data room market. The team responsible for developing SecureDocs (engineers with past experience creating products such as GoToMeeting, GoToMyPC, AppFolio and Rightscale) had encountered their own frustrations in using more traditional virtual data rooms during earlier financial transactions, both in terms of cost and usability. We wanted to create a data room solution that enabled our clients to work quickly, efficiently, and securely. And we wanted to do it at a price point that made sense for businesses of all sizes, not only for during transactions, but also as an ongoing repository for their corporate documentation. SecureDocs Virtual Data Room was launched in April 2012 and has since seen hundreds of financial transactions worth tens of billions of dollars completed on the platform.

ContractWorks is a new product from SecureDocs, Inc. that's scheduled to launch at the beginning of 2015. Like SecureDocs, ContractWorks focuses on usability and a simple user interface. ContractWorks features a comprehensive contract management feature set for companies that are keen to move away from managing contracts manually, tracking details on Excel, or struggling with an existing system that's too complicated or too expensive. We are actively looking for companies who are interested in being involved in our preview release. To find out more, visit us at ContractWorks.
