Cap Table Spreadsheet View

Manage your company shareholders and equity grants in the spreadsheet view.

Eqvista is always looking for new ways to assist our clients’ in solving problems. Managing clients’ company stock, common equity, cap tables, and company filings are the things Eqvista is well known for. Other than this, we notice that our clients have to issue a large number of option grants and keep track of them. Therefore, we came up with a new spreadsheet feature that will make the process easier and efficient.

With our new Spreadsheet feature, Eqvista clients can now handle their company stocks and grants using similar functions to Excel spreadsheets. The feature allows you to easily add, alter and erase multiple rows and columns of data, and view data in a table form. In the cap table, spreadsheet view users can add their data similar to Excel but with more advanced features like error notifications/tips based on their company equity data. It also offers tips and advice to make the tables error-free.

How is Eqvista’s spreadsheet view different from excel sheets?

While many people use Excel to keep track of the shares of their company, it’s not the most reliable method since many things can go wrong. Entering the wrong information without realizing it, accidentally deleting the Excel file, are just some common problems you face when using Excel to manage your company’s equity. It becomes a bigger problem when your company grows; it makes Excel way more difficult to manage your cap table.

By using an equity management platform (like Eqvista), we solve all these problems. Using Eqvista’s spreadsheet feature not only allows you to save all important information in one place, you can have your data checked by our smart software to ensure your cap table is error-free. The good news is, if you know how to use Excel, you already know how to use Eqvista’s spreadsheet feature.

Aside from managing your company equity, Eqvista already has built-in calculations so that you do not have to do them yourself. It is easier with Eqvista!
